Slithering, slithy toves though they may be, I have a soft, squishy spot in my heart for snails. In fact, I rescue them from certain death whenever I see one crossing a wide expanse of sidewalk, heading for certain foot-stomping death by haters.

This little fellow is sporting the expression they often give me, as they bid me adieu and thank you, while slithering back into the bushes… to eat your plants… bwaaaa haaa haaaa!

Anywho, this is my take on this week’s Illustration Friday word, slither.

    Very cute, but what about a slug. Are they snails without a travel home?

    This is the cutest little character. Shame on the haters that try to squish the slithering snails. I’m sure they are very grateful to their human friend who saves their lives and wishes them well on their way to the next garden (to be devoured, bwwaaaaa, hahahaha!)

    Love your blog, you are uber talented, lady. Have a great weekend.
