Eat escargots, I mean? I don't, though my husband does. I spent many hours as a little girl watching snails in the garden. I know too much about about them for that.
Here, just quickly because I had little time, I used a dip pen and a bunch of inks I've had forever and never used. I LOVE this medium! Now I know why Niff and Sutter use it so often.

Oh, J, you omnivore you. Hey, I eat everything except for snails and brains. Haggis and I are old buddies from Scotland days. Sweetbread, tripe, black pudding, liver, other mollusks, yep. Thank you, Rachel, so much.

Laura, these are just exquisite...love them, and I doubt to eat, haven't tried them, but I love looking at your paintings of them.

I adore 'escargots'! And I love them alive too. They are so cute, with their little retractable horns. I always used to keep one as a 'pet', whenever I spent time in the country.
As a French person, I eat 'everything': mussels, oysters, brains, sweetbread, tripe, black pudding, calf's liver (no other liver, though), as well as haggis, of course. They're all delicious and people who are squeamish miss out on some scrumptious tastes. These days I can't eat most of the above - bad tummy. :-(
Love your snails, L.

Linda, this was andouille sausage prepared at an Alsatian restaurant in Paris. It was very authentic and, therefore, nothing you'd want to know about ;D. Nor is it anything you or I would be likely to encounter here.

Please don't tell me that there's something gross that I don't know about in andouille sausage ... I don't want to know! :-(
