4th of July Massacre

My children have a great affinity for snails. In fact, this is my second blog about snails.

In honor of the Forth of July we decided to attack the enemy's of Grandma house. So her plants could live without fear of being eaten. Early in the morning we set out on our mission.

We collected as many of the enemy troops we could find (50 something snails).

After we interrogated them for curiosity sake and to keep the soldiers busy, the bloodbath began.

There were no survivors, the poor snails didn't stand a chance. It was a massacre.

Grandma's house was saved, but there were many casualties. To ease the mental suffering of my soldiers we had a BBQ and swim party to finish up the day.
This blog is not meat to be disrespectful, to real soldiers and their suffering. It is for entertainment purposes only, not a political statement. I am truely grateful for my freedom and the cost it takes to protect them. We live in the greatest nation on the earth. It is not perfect, but that is because of human weakness not the ideals of our founding fathers.


  1. You need to add another disclaimer to the animal rights activist. No snails were really harmed in these photos.

  2. I laughed out loud. The music was perfect. Thanks for the memorial. Loved it so come again and repeat the mission.

  3. I heard about this funny adventure when I was visiting with Mom . . . It is even better with the visual evidence in front of me :)
