Fresh is not just a state of mind!


Even though the stores are full of shoppers, they are not necessarily buying up everything in sight as they have in years past. You can cut a fine deal on the overstock, but you need to be willing to take it home a little shopworn. Here's a helpful holiday tip for you: Add a little moisture to those slugs and they will be perfectly servicable!

Oh my gosh I love you guys-that is so funny! I just got home a little bit ago finally doing my santa shopping-whew! I am pretty much done-all in one night-well maybe I need a little something else? HHHmmm....but we don't have any fresh or stale slugs here where I live-whats a girl to do! LOL!
Love-hugs-and smiles-Tam!

Babbler, thanks for stopping by Photo Potpourri. I hope you weren't too disappointed that the blog had been underrepresented in the slug department, but now that you've left your slugprints, the world will forever regard it as one giant leap for slugkind! I liked the seagull photo; I never picture Oregon as having snow (seagulls, sure, but snow?), but I guess your photo proves it happens. Do the slugs run for cover when snow comes?

Take care; I'll get "reacquainted" with the slugs in Indy next spring when the garden plants start taking shape, and I'll pass along regards on your behalf.

I have been a bit of a slug myself this week finishing up the holiday shopping, figuring that most of the squirrels have buried and saved their gifts from last year. Nonetheless we soldier onward, singing Christmas carols and engaging in random chatter.
Happy Sluggadays To YOU!
