    My friend Dianna just purchased a 90G tank!!!  I am thrilled for her!  Of course she wants to get more crabs for it, so I called Petco today.  When I did, my favorite manager answered the phone.  He told me that they had got a new shipment in 2 days ago, and that he had been trying to call me, but my mailbox was full.  Ummmm, my mailbox isn't full.  I wrote down the wrong number on my last crab slip from the the other day. :oops:  What a ditzbrain I am sometimes!  The poor guy had been calling the wrong number!

    So Dianna & I zoomed off to Petco this evening!  No rugs in site.  Just more PPs & Straws.

    Dianna picked out this handsome Jumbo male PP:

    And the manager GAVE her this darling girl as a gift!  :shock:  She is a large straw that is a VERY dark red...more like raspberry than strawberry, really!:

    Okay, so I was trying to convince Dianna to take this VERY bashful little straw, too.  I held her the other day, and she was so shy, she would not come out of her shell.  Finally, when I held her again today, she sheepishly peeped out at me, and became more comfortable the longer she sat in my hand.  I was pleading with Dianna to take her, too.  I told her that I already had 11 straws, and didn't need anymore.  Well, my manager buddy quickly put her in a box & told me that "this one belongs to YOU.  Don't you dare give her away, or I'll be mad!".  :shock:  So, okay, what was I suposed to do???  Of course I brought her home.  She is fairly newly molted, but very likely, the most bashful crab I have ever owned.  I hope she'll be okay! ~ And I have no intention of giving her away, so the manager has no reason to be mad!

    Her name is "Sweetheart", in celebration of Valentine's Day:

    So Dianna & I may have struck out on the ruggie hunt, but we BOTH came home with a FREE straw!  What a "Sweetheart" of a deal!!!
