Salvador Suarez Snail reflected on his latest decision on which path to take and was convinced he had made the right choice. So much so that he had a snooze!

That’s All!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Quest

Harry Hoverfly’s been sent on a Quest

To find out all he can

About what’s living in his local field

At least that was the plan!

Instead he found himself caught in the sun

On a warm ‘end of summer’ day

The writing was far too big for him

So there he decided to stay!

And strangely Sidney the Snail

Was also sent on a quest

The local map was covered in dew

He considered himself truly blessed

On the water he could quickly glide

And suss out which way to go

To find the most tasty food he could get

Which was under the weeping willow!

That’s All!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Room

Meet Simeon Snail….

Some people believe he is a little pretentious with airs and graces unbecoming to a Common Garden Snail!

But Simeon Snail has aspirations!

But Simeon Snail has aspirations!

 

Nothing will hold him back  in his journey to find room to breathe the clean, clear air at the top of the bush!

Nothing will hold him back in his journey to find room to breathe the clean, clear air at the top of the bush!

So with everything packed and a jaunty whistle Simeon begins his travels….

Simeon slings some grass rope round his shell…..

…..and ties the other grass rope round the bottom of the bush.

…..and ties the other grass rope round the bottom of the bush.

Simeon knows there’s no room for error in these upward negotiations!

So with all his might he begins the ascent…..

There he goes!!

There he goes!!

Simeon has his eyes on the prize!

Simeon has his eyes on the prize!

Will Simeon get to the top of the bush??

Will he attain his hopes and dreams?

Will there be room for him at the top?

Will he indeed have a room with a view?

Is there really room for him in that shell?

Is there room for improvement in today’s storyline??

Life on Snail Street!

Down at the allotment there’s a funny bunch o’ characters…..

Take the inhabitants of Snail Street….

There they all were, minding their own business, when along I came looking for things to burn!!

There they all were, minding their own business, when along I came looking for things to burn!!

I certainly don't want snails for lunch so I'm hoping they'll take the hint and vacate!

I certainly don’t want snails for lunch so I’m hoping they’ll take the hint and vacate!

Simeon Snail is the first to react….

"Arghhh, quick…save yourselves, run!" he shouted trying not to get too out of breath!

“Arghhh, quick…save yourselves, run!” he shouted trying not to get too out of breath!

"Abandon Snail Street….Danger, danger!" he continued!

“Abandon Snail Street….Danger, danger!” he continued!

And off he went!

And off he went!

Moments later his conscience got the better of him and he returned to awaken his better half, Susanna…

"Susanna, Susanna, wake UP!" shrieked Simeon getting a little agitated!

“Susanna, Susanna, wake UP!” shrieked Simeon getting a little agitated!

Simeon's impatience and fear got the better of him and…….

Simeon’s impatience and fear got the better of him and…….

….off he went!

….off he went!

He went a little faster than he meant too and hurtled to the grass…

Slightly dazed he gingerly extended his eye stalks and the other stalky things which he had never given a name to!

Slightly dazed he gingerly extended his eye stalks and the other stalky things which he had never given a name to!

Meanwhile back on Snail Street, chaos had broken out!

Simeon could only look and hope it would all be ok!

Simeon could only look and hope it would all be ok!

All I can add to this short and slightly odd tale is that no snails were harmed in the ensuing fire!

Susanna forgave Simeon for saving his own skin!

That’s All!
