Nice one Martina... although I am not mad about the subject it is very relevant.... and well quoted!

Sean, shouldn't you be on vacation? ;-) Today .. today ... I stopped counting when I reached 20 ... snails on the footpath in front of our house ... you really have to hopscotch :-(

That is so funny. You know how people say they laughed out loud but they really didn't. Well. I did. Laugh out loud that is.

One of the few words I knew in German before 'reading' your pictures was the word for rainbow - regenbogen - a truly wonderful word. . .

a gaggle of snails! You must have had to have been so careful as you walked. I think I would have stayed inside.

- mir

We used to have heaps and heaps of snails but the drought seemed to kill them off ... how nice.

well it is hard work being an acrobat :)))

Martina said...

Marcin, perhaps I will have another one esp. for you tonight :-D

me, Martina to Boss: Oh, I couldn't come to work yesterday because snails besieged my front door.
Yes!
me = mich, mir, ich - depends.
Regenbogen/rainbow - it is interesting when two languages use the exactly same metaphor for something.

Joan Elizabeth, chosing between the Big Dry and snails I would rather have mountains of snails in my frontyard. Okay, perhaps not really mountains ... .

donnie, I am wondering if they know muscle soreness?

Hey, me, in German that is "Muskelkater" .... muscle cat.

There are millions of snails in the background! It seems like Hitchcock's birds recast with snails.

Martina said...

AB, now I will have a nightmare tonight. Let me just have a look out of the frontdoor before I go to bed ...
