SLUGS AND SNAILS AND VERY OLD TALES

It's strange how things happen sometimes...this morning I saw this snail climbing up the window DOESN'T HE KNOW IT'S WINTER
I can't believe that they are out and about at this time of the year. Then when all the JUNK MAIL dropped through the letter box what was lying on the mat but this!
I NEVER KNEW THAT It's actually an advert for a credit card company!!.......I had to check their facts because I'd never really thought about how many noses a slug or snail has.....I'm afraid they aren't welcome enough in my garden for me to take that close a look. I did a Google search and sure enough they do have FOUR....no wonder they manage to sniff out all my lettuces so easily!!! I pity them if they get a cold......imagine having four runny noses!

THE TIMES 1ST MARCH 1927I also received the copy of the Times that I'm giving my Dad for his birthday..........no Page 3 girl in this!!!......and all the Obituaries are on the front page!!!
CERTIFIED It came with a nice Certificate of Authentication.........(his surname is on the original but thought I'd better crop it out). I think he's going to be really pleased to receive such a piece of history.
