Last week our little corner of the Northwest enjoyed a long stretch of beautiful days that belied the early February date. It was the sort of warm and sunny weather that makes you feel obligated to drop all those pressing indoor projects and go outside to find something (anything?) to do instead. In my case, I settled on cleaning up some of the mess that has accumulated this winter: weathered boards from past projects, fallen limbs, blackberry vines, etc.
After putting an arm full of brush into the burn barrel I ran my fingers through my hair and found a SLUG! Who in the world gets slugs in their hair?!? Hopefully it has happened to someone else out there and I’m not the only one. Slug hair is not soon forgotten! That evening after a shower I was tugging at my hair when I realized the crusty spot was a slug trail. Yuck! 🙁
