Things that made me go "hmm"

Snail Tripdych

Shortly after a rainstorm over the weekend I went out for a walk.  As I got close to my apartment the cute little guy in the top photo caught my eye.  He was slowly making his way across the road, at (get ready for it) a snail's pace.

For some reason it made me grin that he was moving across the "stop" sign and I thought it would make a cute triptych.

It was only after I got home and started putting the photos together that I noticed something else.  I'm in the French-speaking portion of Switzerland, so why is the stop painted in English.......hmmm?

We are going old skool musically for this post...

Don't forget to enter the postcard giveaway, you have until the end of day today.

Ick ick ick, I hate snails!!! Almost as much as I hate frogs! How you can call him cute I have no idea! Love you though!

Angie Willis said...

Hahaha. I LOVE that snail. I so hope everyone did stop and he did't get splatted before he got to wherever he was going (probably on his way to eat my vegetables :-)

rebecca said...

you captured a perfect moment! is it weird I think he's cute as a button? a bit slimy, but who cares.

Stampmouse said...

hahaha I loved this

Anna said...

Great triptych! You've got snails and we've got turtles - on the side of the road laying eggs, then crossing at a snail's..... I mean turtle's pace. Same difference, just different scale.

Melanie said...

You must have a really good eye! How did you spot that?? So cute!

Shannon@vintagerestyled said...

How darling. That is a good question. hmmm

Jen@Organized-Design said...

Oh that's funny! Loved this post!

Marisa said...

Hahah I love it. I probably would've stood there until he crossed the road directing traffic out of the way....I love animals. and mollusks.

Cindy said...

great eye and he clearly doesn't understand english :). hope you had a good weekend!

Courtney said...

Oh wow, can't believe you saw him! He's actually a very pretty color. LOL! Can't believe I just said that about a snail.

Dorian Susan said...

That makes me go hmmm....and I love the snail in contrast with the stop-for his slow movement. Great spotting.

Tezzie said...

Love the snail...and your humour, corny and cute ;)

Stop signs throughout Scandinavia are all in English, too...think there are quite a few non-English speaking countries around the world that have English stop signs (confused me to no end as a kid...was sure that someone somewhere didn't know how to spell...it being STOPP in Swedish! LOL)
