Ken - That is one Big Crab!!! Have to agree with Harvey, I prefer Lobster too! :D
One of the most popular dishes I had in Miami was Mac & Cheese w/Lobster
it was delicious!!!! Lew of course being a "Mountain Boy" wouldn't touch any type
of crawling seafood and to be fair, my Dad wouldn't either, he used to say that they were
the "Scavengers of the ocean!" :shock:

Patricia, Just Reading your message about Lew and Dad reminded me of something that happens on the West Coast of Finland around this time, Lamprey Season, they are a fishy, eely thingy that lives in the streams. The Finns smoke them and consume them in one, head first with a glass of chilled Vodka.
My old boss said “Kenny don’t eat them , they eat the bodies of dead Mother in Laws” :shock:
I never did after that :lol:

Ken - Don't Knock It Till You've Tried It!!!! :D :D :D
p.s. I used to make Peanut Butter, Sliced Banana & Blackberry
Seedless Jam Sandwiches for Lew for about 5years and
just couldn't try same until curiosity got the best of me
and now I'm a fan of same.

Ken,like Patricia said "don't knock it 'till you've tried it" They are even serving it in the Grand Dining Room on board Oceania ships but only at lunch time evening meals have the whole steamed Maine Lobster. Peanut butter,jam and banana butties have been a staple food in N.America for years.I think our daughter Sarah lived on them while she was at Victoria University but they were dessert ...main meal Kraft Dinner(Mac and Cheese) :lol: :lol: :lol:

I don't see "Tongue" Sandwiches as a favorite that Lew forced himself to eat
so as not to offend my Mum when I took him home for the first time!!!! :D :D

Cruises don’t just go to warm places.
This is Janette atop the SkyTower in Osaka, Japan. It was freezing but a trip to a Sake factory next warmed us up :D

Ken - I thought they used the "Non-Gender "IT" now but whether
that will be popular I haven't a clue!!!
Something is in the air here, all day yesterday could hear Fort Eustis
practising with their guns from 6 a.m. until 5 p.m. and there
were several "Stelth" jets flying around.

This photo was posted on my "Neighbourhood Watch Forum" which keeps you informed
as to what is going on in the neighbourhood. It is in our former neighbourhood so Janine
and I are going to have a "gander" at it tonight, as they said this would be the last night
to see it!!

Janine is such a Hoot!!! Never a dull moment around her. Here is my porch after she brought all her Halloween items over.
She said she had a "Ball" driving to my house with HER in the front seat, people were taking double glances one in
fright and then one in laughter!! Then some were taking photos at stoplights!!
