The thing to do is to get a couple of pet toads, Baz - I'm sure they'd make short work of any slugs deemed superfluous to the needs of the household  ...

So let me get this right, every night when we all go to bed, I need to shut 2 toads into my kitchen ?. I don't think Mrs Baz would approve, I think if I got 2 pet toads she'd be hopping mad !

Toads are adorable little creatures, Baz ... And, even if you can't bring yourself to regard them with any degree of enthusiasm, they're still a huge improvement on slugs ...

I left my wellies on the doorstep, and the next time o put them on, there was a frog in there. I don't know how it got in, but my brother in law said it was a 'toad' .

The Present Mrs. Rascal said that low sunlight when driving is an Autumn Menace

Rascal bach, you have no idea how hard I'm laughing at your last post.  You are so funny.
I think Rascal should apologise for Wils - seriously!

I left my boots in the garage the winter before last, and when I went to put them on again, I discovered that the mice had been nesting in them ...

I don't know whether, in a case where creatures are engaged in constructing bijou residences in one's footwear, mice are preferable to frogs ...

Frogs don't nibble and ruin your boots and other items as far as I know.

Here's something I learned from Hopalong Cassidy movies at the Laugh and Scratch -- when cowboys wake in the mornings they always bang and shake their boots before putting them on.

This procedure is intended to dislodge hidden scorpions (always scorpions) from their overnight sleeping accommodation.

I'm lucky of course as I have servants to do that sort of thing for me.

Are you sure they were scorpions, Tref?  Or just rather overweight earwigs ... ?

No I doubt it what with being hard and from the Mountain and that  he would have shrugged off scropion bites as easy as flea bites yeah.

No they were almost certainly scropions.

Had they been wiergigs would have entailed Hopalong telling fibs -- which in my youth would have been unthinkable.

Don't in the push bike through the woods yesterday I noticed brown leaves on the floor and thought it was the first sign of autumn.

If anyone asks "what did you do last night?" in June or July,  just say "I can't remember, as the last period of *night* was on the 17th May. Since then, the darkest point of any 24 hour period has only been classed as Astronomical Twilight."

Anyone who wants to use that in conversation may do so, under licence.
