Crabs

Lifeboat shouts rarely happen at convenient times. That's the nature of the job. Monday's shout was during my tea time. Now I wouldn't normally mind but on this occasion I was just tucking into the innards of a fine 4 1/2 lb brown crab freshly plucked from the deep by Geoff Marsh andTom. I think you'll agree, he was a beauty!

Talking of which, it would appear that Tom has an admirer. Apparently he is 'cute', not sure that I would agree but then I am neither female nor American (I suspect they may have a slightly more exotic taste in man)?! My advice to the delightful if ever so slightly deranged Megan? Reserve judgement 'till you've smelt him!

You're killing me. In so many ways...... There's so much to say....

mk,

You will be amused to hear you were the principle topic of conversation in the 'Anchor' last night!

I sincerely hope that when you say 'killing you' what you mean is: brightening your days with our amusing quips?!

Thank you.....

Yes. Amused. A bunch of blokes talking about me and I'm not there to defend myself while drinking you all under the table.

I have a feeling your smelly friend Tom is getting quite an earful.

Yes indeed.....quite an earful.

He is of course delighted that someone other than his mother thinks he's cute!

I have no doubt you would drink me under the table.......you might perhaps struggle with Tom.....he has some capacity!
