BT, nice photo of your son. I'll have to send some guys down to paint a Bruins sweater on that statue.

Have you ever rented BBQ from that place in the picture?

just a small spot though. maybe non-hatred is better said, unlike the broad street bullies and the suit and tie rangers.
I like Marty too. Who doesn't? I was just kidding about the Devils. They have been a better team over the last 20 years than my beloved Canadians. But, it's hockey. And ya gotta chirp!!

I thought some might like a vision of warm weather. This was taken last summer on the Chesapeake Bay.

When we lived on the North Oregon Coast a couple years ago we did a lot of crabbing and clamming. Thought you might like to see what we were catching.

These are Dungeness Crab and that is Zippy .. always checking them out but way too fast to get pinched!




These are razor clams. It was a ton of fun to dig these guys .. they are really quick. Again .. Zippy loved going with us .. he could sniff them out .. he would start digging in the sand and there was always a clam there.



We had awesome wildlife there .. we had a nesting pair of Bald Eagles about 3 blocks from our place.

Really cool pics, LMB.
I've never dug clams so have no idea what that thing is hanging out... looks like they are both eating grubs, lol.

those are their siphons, or mouth parts for lack of a better term.

mrslmb, they look like young geoducks rather than razor clams.

eta: i stand corrected. seems that pacific razor clams have that big siphon.

i've been looking for a place here that sells either. for less than like $150 each, that is.

I didn't know that. That movie was a classic.
There will probably be stoned kids watching it 20 years from now at midnight with tin foil wrapped on their hands and tossing ice cubes in the air.
