Most welcome home!

We say that snails carry their homes with them but is this true? Do snails, or turtles, or all things with shells not have homes?
Is there no nest that the snail family returns to? No place where turtles gather to sleep or tell their stories?
Just because they can retreat into solitude, the kind no one can intrude upon doesn’t mean they don’t leave their shells, their selves, in the care of other turtles or snails or whatnot.
Somewhere someone greets them with “Most welcome home!”
