"If you see a faded sign at the side of the road that says
'15 miles to the crab shack', crab shack, yeah, yeah
I'm headin' down the Atlanta highway
Lookin' for the crab getaway, headed for the crab
getaway

I got me a car, it's as big as a whale
And we're headin' on down to the crab shack
I got me a Chrysler, it seats about 20
So hurry up and bring your jukebox money

The crab shack is a little old place
Where we can get together
Crab shack, baby"

Some strange individuals consider it civil, wide-ranging, and an overall nice place to hang out.

I thought if I slipped in here before there were thousands of posts, I might find it less intimidating. I still find it confusing! :-)

I'll peek in now and then and see if I can become unconfused! (I think that having a pet Zeep sounds nice. Whatever a Zeep is.) ;)

Welcome Amelia. Don't be confused. We just talk about anything that's on our mind. We spent a day discussing the virtues of a front loading washer over a top loading washer and in the end I don't think we ever came to a concensus. Food is always a hit, too. Caddis usually shows up when food's the topic.

Although we tend to be liberal, we'll harangue against both political parties and government in general. Many of us are from countries other then the US, like Austrialia, Canada, and Croatia (Well, just one from Croatia. And now maybe a new friend from Ireland. She's probably asleep by now.

Hmm, PA, that's just across the Delaware from me.

Let's not forget Tui from New Zealand!

We need a few more posts in the old thread to close it out.

Tui Allen says:
A pet Zeep is an animal from the tail end of the Dr Seuss story "One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish." Seuss is the greatest author ever to have represented the USA.
(AND THAT'S A FACT!)

He said something like (and I'm typing from memory here)

"And now good night it is time to sleep
And we will sleep with our pet zeep
Today is gone; to day was fun.
Tomorrow is another one.

From here to there, from there to here
Funny things are everywhere."

You see? Brilliant! What other American author is there who could top that, other than Seuss himself in his other books?

Ah, the top-loading vs. front-loading question. *nods* I could get into that kind of discussion!

And I like international. :-)

I'm a-waaaa-aaay up in northern PA in the middle of nowhere (a very beautiful middle-of-nowhere when it's not snowing in late April). I did live in DC for over a decade, and I was probably closer to you then! lol!

Okay. I'll accept that. lol!

I definitely would like a pet zeep. (I wonder if I could have one and not know it . . . *ponders*)

Amelia, I am also in Northern PA...sitting under about 6 inches of snow. So nice to know that it isn't just in my front yard. :)

High capacity top-loader. (that would be my vote)

The old one has closed. We did a great clean-up job and swept and dusted out the old shack before we left. Wazi turned up to chivvy us along.

I have two pet zeeps. They take up so much space in my bed, there's hardly anywhere left for me to sleep. One is a small silky kinda pommy bloke. The other is a gigantic feline called Phoebe.

Surely you all are not still discussing washing machines, are you?

I can't believe my feijoas got mentioned in the intro post!
