I'm just taking my washing out of the machine - and find a very well washed slug! :mrgreen: How the heck did that get in there? :roll:

Anything interesting you've found in your washing recently?

BLEUCH!!!!!!

I'f found those wee pillbox beasties in the washing machine after a load (I used to call them earywigs, but I don't know what they are called now, they are a member of the shrimp family apparently)

Not in the washer, but slug related - after using the loo, for whatever reason I lifted the seat to expose the porcelain rim and there was a giant slug on it....... EEEEWWWW!!!

They find their way everywhere... You mark my words - in years to come, slugs will rule the world! :?

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.

Well not recently but about 20 years ago after I'd come back from spending a summer working in Greece, I was ironing a blouse. Suddenly around the cuffs there were some crunchy sounds and then browny coloured crispy looking legs started appearing on the ironing board....... I'd washed and ironed a long dead COCKROACH! :shock: :pale: :pale: :pale: They are my worst nightmare!

:pale: I agree... At least it was dead. (So was the slug, btw...)

While still on the farm it was more usually nails, crayons, castration rings, pens...

We used to have a HUGE plasterboard wall back when we lived in Oxfordshire, god knows how but the main thing i remember about that house was that for years there was this glistening slug/snail trail all the way up it (about 10 metres high) :shock: talking about stupid...
main thing I find in the washing machine (yes I wash my own cloths!!) is my hair... yucky yuck... I am dreading the day when i find a 10 euro note in there :pale:
As I ping from tree to tree I wonder... why do I seem to have transformed into a pinging tree-dwelling thing?

It's because the back of the washing machine is the entrance to Narnia.
