**NEWS FLASH**

has a nice article about Blogfest '09.
Check it out!


.....now back to regular blogging stuff.

Virgina Crab...displaced



That's exactly what's been taking place in Texas ever since Grandma J bought JJ a squeaky crab toy at Blogfest.

Somehow, at Blogfest, when no one was looking, this crab took on a life of his own, and if you don't believe me, check out some of
his antics at the beach.


Everyone knows that JJ is spoiled a squeaky toy lover, and Grandma J buys him toys all the
time.







She knew he'd love the crab she bought him at Blogfest in Mathews, VA....and she was right.



JJ gently played with his Chesapeake Bay Crab.....and the crab acted like any other squeaky toy........until yesterday.









Things turned ugly, and JJ started playing rough....something he learned from a little puppy called Buttons. When all was said and done.........





Crab was in a pickle....he was de-crabbed, but thank goodness he didn't get boiling mad....if you know what I mean.







Off to the crab vet we went......







Gratefully, crab is on the mend, and the verdict is out on whether he stays in Texas...or goes back to the Chesapeake Bay. Stay tuned.

I see JJ knows where the good meat is. He is officially invited to all crab eating fests from now on.

Bwaaahaaaahaaa! That was so funny. JJ loves that crab. I can see it in his eyes.

LOL!!

Great post. Glad he has a taste for seafood.

I hope Mr Crab has insurance.....

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Oh, Grandma J. Oh. This is good.

Mr. Crab may well outshine PJB, and you know how I love PJB.

Plus, JJ is definitely onto something. The claws are loaded with good meat, preferably boiled and heavily seasoned with Old Bay.

We will need a progress report on Mr. Crab's dismemberment, as well as PJB's opinion on this newcomer who is encroaching on his territory. (I had him for a few weeks, I know what he's thinking.)

p.s. It appears that JJ did a number on Mr. Crab's eyes as well. Around here, we don't eat the eyes. JJ just needs a few lessons in the fine art of crab eating, that's all.
