Who let the crabs out?? Who, who, who who...


We often visit a tiny beach here in Noank, CT. It is very small, and visited throughout the day by locals wanting a quiet spot for lunch, or by kids who want to do a little crabbing.

Yesterday we went over with a large bucket, some hot dogs (no chicken to be found) some string and a large net.

While Golden Boy was enjoying the crabbing adventure with his cousin and friend, his sisters were desperately trying to catch some rays on the grassy knoll beside the small beach.

There were two small children romping on the small beach, all the while watching the boys catching crab after crab. ( And when I say crab, I mean TINY CREATURE that might ONE day be a crab...)

One little boy exclaimed, "Look Mom!! A Herman crab!"




I felt like I was back in kindergarten...and I smiled.

Rick Daley said...

Did the girls on the grassy knoll see who shot Kennedy?

Mango Girl said...

say in a sing-songy voice: "Hey, hey we're the munsters...people think we are just crabin' around..." what ever the rest of the words are.

Pale Rider and I are going crabbing next week...that is if we don't all burn to death from the heat wave first.

Em said...

Funny, I thought those things came from a kiosk at the mall?

Hmmm, learn something new every day...

Deb Thaxton said...

Desert Songbird said...

They were tiny, so they weren't Munster crabs, were they?

Kathy B! said...

Catching crabs is the best!

Run Herman, run...

Scobberlotcher said...

Too funny!

Real Live Lesbian said...

Hey....crabs get to have names, too! ;)

Have fun with your family!

SkylersDad said...

Herman isn't a crab, he is a Munster!

buffalodick said...

I won't go into the only kind of crabs you could catch in Michigan...

zelzee said...

I can see the back to school essay now........

"What I did on my summer vacation."

"I got the crabs."

rightonmom said...

OK, I accidentally read "Who let the carbs out" cause that's what I'd really like to know. Anyway, you're like a magnet that attracts the cutest sayings. Enjoy!

You didn't think all crabs had names like Snappy, did you? They have people names, too.

Maggie May said...

I know Herman! And his wife, Boiled.

*Lissa* said...

Aw, Herman crabs.

Keyona said...

Awww...that made me smile. I *heart* kids.

Roshni Mitra Chintalapati said...

laughingwolf said...

Mags said...

A herman crab!!! That's hilarious...I love it.

Laoch of Chicago said...

: )

KMcJoseph said...

Those Herman Crabs are so lonely.

Pastor Sharon said...

Awe I love Herman. . . . crabs! I am intrigued that they never leave home without their house. . . until they do!

Renée aka Mekhismom said...

Oh how sweet. I love herman crabs too. And blue crabs. Just not crabs in the pants. LOL

Beth said...

I bought a Herman crab in the mail when I was a kid. When I opened the box, he pinched the shit out of me. He lived for several years and was always a grumpy little thing.

Lilly said...

Aww you miss them dont you, small kids not crabs I mean...

Comedy Goddess said...

And that means a she-crab is called Lily?

Okay, I'll just 'splain that obscure reference,

Herman and Lily Munster.

Come on, you knew that didn't you?

Comedy Goddess said...

And PS, you're in Connecticut and did not call me? Purely an oversight, I'm sure!

Dana's Brain said...

Do crabs go for hot dogs? We've only used chicken.

Fingers crossed, we might see the sun tomorrow!

blognut said...

What do the boys do with the crabs once they catch 'em?

peewee said...

I love when kids do that. One kid said to me about my dog...I sure so like your golden achiever.

flutter said...

I had a pet crab named Herman!

Smart Mouth Broad said...

You're like a magnet for cute things that kids say. The Art Linkletter of blogland.

♥ Braja said...

Is that Herman crab married to a Lily crab, with an Eddie crab son?

Petra a.k.a The Wise (*Young*) Mommy said...

Totally adorable!!

Jeve (aka John and Steve) said...

I knew a girl in college who caught Her man's crabs. Not cute.

adrienne said...

Oh, crabbing! I haven't done that since I was little. I do love hunting for "Herman" crabs, though!

Fancy Schmancy said...

Bummer, I don't think the sun is really going to come out until after you've gone home :(

The Demigod said...

I would've totally paid attention to the story had my eyes not been drawn to the hotness that is the shirtless man in the picture.

Except if that's golden boy, which would make me kind of a creep.

...

Meh *shrugs. I don't really care, who is he?! LOL

Annie said...

My girls so want a crab as a pet.

Oz Girl said...

Somehow I don't think a crab really constitutes a "pet". Although if one calls it Herman, then maybe you feel more emotionally connected. LMAO - I think that is adorable he called it a herman crab.

AND I'm ready for the drinkie....

AS Amber said...

When I'm here and I see a title like this one...I know I'm in for a treat. No matter what direction the "crabs" went.

We're begging for sun in Utah, too.
