“Will you walk a little faster?” said a whiting to a snail,
“There’s a porpoise close behind us, and he’s treading on my tail. See how eagerly the lobsters and the turtles all advance!
They are waiting on the shingle--will you come and join the dance? Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, will you join the dance?
Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, won’t you join the dance?

SUBJECT: Snail in shell
An uneventful day. I was able to get the first coat of paint on the porch steps. I will get a second coat on tomorrow and a final coat on Friday. More than likely, they will need to be repainted in the next 3 years...that's the nature of the beast. Other than that - it was laundry today. MonkeyBoy had baseball practice tonight and I was able to sit on my behind and watch sans other children. It was rather peaceful. Afterwards, he and I went to the nearby park to search for a photo opportunity. MB and his sharp eyes found this snail for me to photograph.
