Freebird5825 and R_I_T get crabby

For viewing pleasure, here's a quick pic of Freebird5825 and me. We had a great meet-and-greet at the Conch Republic in Redington Beach this afternoon, along with the DW and a friend of Freebird's from her distant past. Freebird likes King Crabs. A lot . Ya just can't get 'em in upstate New Yawk. I did well with the Mahi Mahi fish-and-chips, come to think of it.

If any of you have an opportunity to meet other members, I highly recommend it. If you like their posts, you'll almost certainly like them in person.

There's only time for that if they decided whether to pay off their mortgages or invest the money...

Great greet idea. If anyone makes it to my neighborhood, I'd be happy to show you a place some refer to as "Evan's Got Crabs." That takes some explaining but for now I'll say Evan is the waiter.

Great picture, must have been after lunch.

Very nice photo! It's a great idea. I guess I should start paying attention to where everyone lives. I know it's not the same as Florida, but if anyone is coming to Minnesota, let me know!

Sounds great. I will PM you for my upcoming trip. Maybe we can get together or I can pick your brains for restaurant suggestions if that doesn't work out.

Alas, folks here often don't list their location is their profile. I am sure people have their reasons, but it makes it harder to set up the occasional meet-and-greet when you don't know who is in your destination area.

Take a minute and fill it in.
