    They watched me and hubby eat Chipotle as they do not favor Mexican food then we went to a store that sold crabs and we found E's.....3 were itty bitty and Steph and I wanted the same crab but she graciously let me have him which was a good thing as the other one I bought was dead--none of us could get him to come out and hubby said I think he is dead but I bought him on the hope he was just shy.....well I ran to Petco and on my way in I was checking on the 2 I got and he was hanging out of his shell enough that I could determine he was gone so I went back to the store before I left the area and got my money back.
    This is the crab Steph wanted and I was gonna name it Steph but its a boy so here is SONIC

    Then at Petco they had nothing BUT E's and PP's so I got 2 more. This was my first time ever seeing E's at a Petco--I think Chris said she got some at a Petco too.
    This is Bell

    Mini convention indeed. Here are the meeting pics first (she tried to steal my Nemo off my antenna as soon as she got there). The first one is Steph, Pappa (Herm-EZs hubby) and Herm-EZ; the second is me and Herm-EZ. All images are clickable.

    This is me looking at our 2 newest micros PeeWee and unnamed E.

    These are some pics of the 'tat and all the crabs having fun in their new home. There has been a whirlwind of activity tonight between checking out the new home and shell shopping. We sat downstairs for an hour watching them all run around...

    Here are the last pics I'm posting. Steph had found an ad on Craig's list about someone who wanted to adopt out her 2 hermit crabs, said they were large ones and that one was the size of an orange. Well, he isn't quite the size of an orange but he IS big. Here are a couple of pics of him in my hand. Despite the fact that his BP is as thick as my thumb (you can see that in the pic) he is a very gentle crab. In fact, the 2 micro Es we got today chewed me up pretty good, actually took little chunks of my skin off my thumb but this big guy didn't even try and I held him for like 10 minutes.

    Finally I wanted to say that it was fun meeting Herm-EZ and Pappa today, it was worth the drive. I hope you guys had an easier trip back home. Thanks for the tank and thanks for the laughs. You are a hoot Herm-EZ. Sorry to hear about that crab, I honestly didn't think he was dead. I guess that's what you smelled afterall though, eh?

    Take care and enjoy the pics everyone!

    Oh stop, I'm the one making the stupid faces in all of them. Hey, I could post that one I took of your shirt and you made the really funny face, lol...

    We had all kinds of shell changes going on last night too, 2 of the little guys were kind of fighting over a shell, both pulling on it at the same time. It was funny to watch. We were both planted on the floor in front of the tank watching it like the TV, but the programming is MUCH better, lol.

    Awww! Where are you moving to? Since we were just home in May/June, I don't think we'll be going again anytime soon. Ryan mentioned going home at Xmas, but I want at least one Xmas with him all to myself (well, and RJ too of course).

    Cool, if you move there, I'll hook you guys up :) She's a sweetheart and I miss her like crazy. Out of all my high school friends, she's the only one I really talk to very often and the only one I miss that bad...lol. Thanks about the avatar. I don't even remember how I did it anymore...lol. I think I removed the color from the photo then used the find edges filter on photoshop.
