Being the wonderful daughter that I am :), I made from scratch potato soup and cornbread this morning. I ate some and it was so good that I called Mom and told her I was bringing lunch to them. I'm in the will for another day!!!

Yesterday when I went out to get the paper fairly early, these were abundant on my sidewalk in front of my house.....well, this time it was slugs. All summer I picked up snails every morning off my patio and put them in a paper cup. They were very small snails. I had to do some research to find out the difference in slugs and snails. The basic difference is that snails have a shell on their back and slugs don't. Slugs leave a silvery trail behind them and I saw lots of those trails when the sun shone down on my concrete. Slugs eat plants. I don't know what snails eat. I put out stuff to try to rid myself of the slugs and snails. Today I didn't see any, but it was considerably colder today than yesterday....so I don't know which made the difference.
