    Off topic, sorry… but Plods has asked me to deliver a message….

    (I apologise to those who already read this on Ballard Street, but there’s bound to be some overlap.)

    I know some of you have been worried because he hasn’t been around.

    He’s OK…

    He’s currently at home, recovering from a lung transplant, and will come back as soon as he’s able… and better than before!

    Meanwhile… yeah… it sounds like she’d be calling about their kid…. but why the vet?

    Unless it’s the snails’ vet?

    Those molluscs should hang a shell suit on Sammy.

    What are the chances the shells grow back to original shape? Slime and none.

    Try sprinkling a little salt on the affected area.

    Sammy is definitely a Francophile if he likes his snails that much!

    “I told the vet that we let our snails roam free on the table, and he told me we were nuts and hung up.”

    I don’t know the first thing about snails, and I don’t know if people even keep them as “pets,” but if they do, the free-range conditions depicted here seem a little weird.

    What’s amazing is that they still have a landline
