Sunday afternoon I headed to Sandpiper Reef in Hallieford to participate in a very special celebration.

This beautiful young lady, Maggie, graduated from Mathews High School Saturday.

I've known Maggie since she was knee high to a giraffe.
(She's tall as well as gorgeous.)

The celebration included crabs.

And also some crabs.

After that, there were more crabs.

Followed by crabs.

Beautiful, succulent crabs.

Remember Blue Collar Joe's, home of the World's Most Heavenly Doughnut?

 (Click here for that post.)

Well, Blue Collar Joe's doughnuts made an appearance at this Crab Feast Fest.

Mr. Blue Collar Joe is Maggie's uncle.

(Pardon me.  Can't type right now.  Wiping drool off the keyboard. I do not eat doughnuts.  But I live for these doughnuts.  Amen.)

Then, of course, in case it hasn't been mentioned before except that it has, there were still. more. gorgeous. crabs.

A good time was had by all.

The End.

Congratulations to Anonymous Hallieford Resident's Daughter Maggie and the MHS class of 2011.

Maggie, you have so many gifts and so much to offer.

The world is your perfectly seasoned steamed crab oyster.

Congratulations, Maggie!
I'll take a bushel of each, please:)

I'm nursing my own crab-picking wounds from the weekend. Also, I had a little more alcohol than usual (which means more than 1 of whatever I was drinking) so my head still isn't great, but it was a good weekend.

Hope the book is in the mail!

AHR- I was honored to be a part of it. Thanks so much for inviting me. I look forward to the anniversary...six months from now, you say? Good. Because a year is too long to wait for that much fun.
