A Snail Hunt

A couple of you have expressed interest in my Mother's Day gecko, Flaco. My mom bought it at a local shop, and I know most of you won't make the drive to Tulsa to pick one up. Mom also found this adorable snail for my sister-in-law's garden:



Isn't he cute?

So I went looking online for a source for these darling creatures. Here's what I have so far: two shops in the UK. Yep. I figure Casdok and I'm Being Held Hostage are in luck. There's Save the Children and The Potting Shed. And I'm Being Held Hostage (I'm going to call her IBHH from now on - get a shorter moniker, girl!) is moving and will need something adorable for her new garden, right? They should take a look - those are some cute shops.

Today's my busy day. To cap it off, I have a dental appointment in the afternoon. Fortunately, I love going to the dentist. He just confirms that I have strong, healthy teeth. And he always asks if I'm interested in having them whitened. He should ask if I'm willing to give up my coffee. The answer to both questions is the same. And I'm spending way too much on orthodontia for the girl right now. But I'll end my day with clean teeth, and that's what counts.

Until I write again ...

The snail is cute . . and I happen to LOATHE going to the dentist. That's because my teeth are TERRIBLE!!! I grind and every time i go something else has to be done!

So cute! Makes me wish I had a garden. :)

Before I had my crowns done, the dentist asked if I wanted whitening because they color-matched. I told him no because I knew before too long, I'd have really white crowns and coffee stained teeth.

Someone needs to invent coffee that whitens teeth. Now THAT's a million dollar idea. :)

I was wondering if that gecko was ceramic...yea, I'm a little slow on the uptake! Either that or I need glasses. The snail is very cute!
