It's a sad, sad day.

Today we hold our hearts at half mass in honor of our beloved "whitey" the crab.

I went to feed the crabs today and noticed that whitey was completely out of her shell and not moving. I know that sometimes crabs will change shells if they get too big for their current one. So I go out to the garage and get a bigger shell. I set it next to her. Nothing. I tap the glass. Nothing.

I realize that when you buy a pet from the mall, you have a 50/50 chance of making it a month. And frankly I had no love for these dumb crabs. But Sunshine loves them. she checks on them a couple times a day, she sings to them. I really didn't want to tell her. But I did and she was ok with it. Her first response is that "Jesus can play with whitey now."

Sure why not. We'll go with that.

Here's some pictures in case you ever wondered what a crab looks like without their shell. well wonder no more!

RIP Whitey. May God have mercy on your soul and may the Man never bring you down.

Give little miss Sunshine my condolences. My thoughts are with her...
(Between you & me, I giggled a little at the idea that God now has crabs... in heaven, I mean.)
