Feeling Sluggish?

Okay, yes, I know this is not actually a slug.  But we get those, too.  And they're whoppers!  I've seen slugs six inches long on my back patio after a good rain.  This guy was exploring our patio door on a chilly, wet morning recently.  The northwest is a perfect breeding ground for slugs and snails alike, and while I'm not really a fan of them, at least they don't move quickly or unpredictably.  A word of advice, though: Never walk barefoot outside after dark around here.  Stepping on these guys with bare feet is NOT a pleasant experience.  I should know; I've done it twice.
