Friday Haiku Too: Caterpillar Crawl

It’s fashionable
To wear white Pre-Labor Day
Not so much after.

Poll: Are Creepy Crawlies Cute?

I’ll draw the line at Spiders (except for the ones who do YMCA)- but take a look at these fellows. Sender-Inner Anne S. says, “Finally, there’s proof! Baby snails are cute too! (And start out really really really tiny. It’s surprising they survive at all with this teeny weeny size and their rather obvious lack of speed.”)

What do you think? Cute, or Creepy? Take the Poll!

Friday Haiku Too: Christine Takes Her Shot

IMG_8244_CO“Tiny McSnailersons was almost baked into a red currant muffin the other day. Having escaped this fate, he acquiesced to posing for pictures, perfectly showing off Rule of Cuteness #14 in the process. I sense a Haiku just waiting to be composed here!” -Christine H.

So, we said to Christine, “Sounds great! Write it!” And here it is:

Tiny little snail
Your world gets picked for muffins
You bid farewell

Snail Xing

SAM_0041“I took this photo at 6am while on vacation in Iowa. I was enjoying my morning walk and noticed this snail crossing the paved road. He is only about the size of the end of a pinky finger. No photo editing has been done, this is straight from the camera!” -Kimberly O.

So, I was zooming in to take a picture, and one of them hopped right onto my hand. Thanks for the consideration, and keeping me supplied with all the QTE® a girl can handle! Hoppy Tuesday Toesday!” -Stephanie T.

Poll: Melvin The Moth- QTE Or Creepy?

Charmi writes: “This is my new friend, Melvin the Moth. (He’s a male Automerus Io moth about 3.5 inches when his wings were extended.) I think his hairdo and fuzzy legs are pretty cute, but the beady eyes pierce into your soul.”

So, whadya think? QTE…or Creepy? Poll away! (Poll at the bottom of the post.)
