Well, we found Norman today. Some of you may remember that Stormin' Norman the Fiddler Crab ran away the second week in January. We looked and looked and couldn't find him...until today. He had made it to the far side of the room, behind the dog's crate, right in front of the door out to the porch. The door we don't use, which is why we didn't find him until now. We plan a burial at sea with the following eulogy:
Norman, you were a really cool pet. It was fun to watch you hide in your little pirate ship and storm the beach on the far side of the tank. We're sorry we didn't realize you were now big enough to climb out of your tank. And we're glad the dog didn't eat you after all. Rest in peace.
