Takin' His Sweet Time

Monday, June 22, 2009

No, this is not a rare sighting of the Washington State Bird. This is Sluggo. While we were on our walk yesterday talking to people, taking pictures, stopping to sit on a park bench and just enjoy the day, this fellow was having no part of the hurry-up life. He managed to meander a whopping 10 feet or so. That seemed to be about all the exercise he could handle. I tried to get close once and he made an aggressive move so we just went on about our business.

    What a hoot! Y'all are something else! I have never seen a slug this color. Wow!

    Yes, I'm continuing with this particular walk another day or two. Thanks for your visit.

  2. Shadow Says:

    I have to wonder what kind of aggressive move he made!

  3. Lynette: You've gotta have a little fun with it.
    Shadow: A very subtle one.

  4. I've seen them become pretty violent. They WILL slime you so be careful. I'd stay my distance. MB

  5. Lois Says:

    Probably very wise of you to keep your distance.

  6. You've just made me laugh so hard, I really needed it after a bad day at work!

  7. Glad you all enjoyed it. You can't be serious all the time.

    I've also never seen a brown slug, but for some reason I always enjoy seeing the greenish ones. As a teenager I saw one in Vancouver, BC or nearby, then I hadn't seen another until I moved to Oregon. I don't know why, but they just seem special to me - they are indicative of this beatiful part of the world (in my experience) and they just dawdle along not bothering anyone. Unless they make an "aggressive move," that is :)
