    Ah ha, Justino, "Outside your Window" is a Pacific coast rain forest.

    I used to try to take the chickens for walks in the forest but there was a rooster in the flocks during those days. He had different ideas about getting out of sight of the homestead.

    The cats would follow the dogs and me for awhile and then we'd lose 'em. On the way home, they'd show up again blinking in the bright sunlight after a nap under the bushes.

    My guess is you're in the PNW somewhere. Some day I'd like to visit the peninsula. If I remember right, it's the most northern temperate rainforest. Silly how I've never been there and I only live a stone throws away.

    That is one yellow banana slug though! The ones here are paler and usually meet the sharp end of the spade when I find them in the garden. They get so big that my mom has many a time mistaken them as dog droppings when curled up. When I was little, I would stuff them individually into baby food jars and they sometimes wouldn't fit. Easily the length of my hand.

    OH JEEZ... Ive never seen one of those before. If there ever was a pretty slug, that would fit the bill.
