Gate-post snail

"Well, I'm back." (As Samwise Hamfast said, with more reason, having actually been gone and returned.) Ready to start blogging again, anyhow.

I feel sort of like this gate-post snail:

"Is it safe to come out yet?"

The crab, in a fit of landscaping enthusiasm, hammered the snail point down into the sand like a gate-post in the crab's front yard. A poor choice of construction materials: once work had stopped for the day, the gatepost woke up, peered around, then stretched and twisted until he could grab the shell next to him, uprooted himself, and slid away.

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
