My Fan Club ~ A Slug and A Boy . . .

I was able to get a good shot a slug's face yesterday. No eyes; is that slit the mouth? More research is necessary on this end. You can enlarge the picture if you want a closer look.

Meet Evan from Charlottesville, Virginia. His mom and aunt are friends of fellow blogger Stacey of Stacey Snacks. She is blogging from Paris right now eating the things I photograph ~ escargot (snails).

Eight year old Evan reads my blog and wanted me to see this cool Walking Stick insect he found in his back yard. His name is Mr. Stick and he seems right at home on his master's cheek.

You can read more about
Phasmatodea on Wikipedia. Believe it or not these insects make ideal pets!

Have a great weekend.

So do I.
I have the perfect jar.
All I have to do is punch some holes in the top when I find mine.

All you have to do is Google "Slugs in Kitchen" and you will see many helpful suggestions on how to get rid of them. I know how terrified you are of these lowly creatures.

Good luck.
