    So I let the dog out into my yard to go to the bathroom just now and I've been wondering whats been taking him so long. So I go outside to go check on him and make sure he's not dead and I see he's eating something. I tell him to bring it here and drop it, and he does. Its a crab cake.

    There are crab cakes all over my yard, probably about a dozen or so.

    What the hell?

    In other news, aka while I was watching the news, I just learned that recently a truck filled with hamburger patties crashed, spilling 40,000 pounds of frozen hamburger over the black top. And a beer truck overturned not too far from there.

    Maybe this is an omen?

    Why couldn't I get bacon? I don't even like crab cakes...
  4. Those truck crashes were right near my house. I wish I had known about them, I'd have helped myself to a free lunch.

    I think that they tell you not to feed your doggy sea food when you adopt one. Then again, they put everything on that list but dog food, even alcohol! Then again, my Patches loves a stiff bourbon.

    Perhaps you could request a different entree? Does he have a menu you could peruse for a few minutes?

    Of course any crab cake making it up to NY is going to taste horrible. Come down to Maryland and get a fresh one. Crab cakes are God's gift to man. The bacon meme is pretty cute, but crab is far superior.

    So, he only ate one? Musta been really awful crab cakes. (Not that they're pretty much awful to begin with. Why would a person do something like that with such a lovely thing as crab? Why not just eat it right out of the shell, like God intended? Or put it in gumbo!)

    My neighbors are bonkers, but in a different way. Every time they let their dogs out, and the dogs behave, you know, like dogs, and try to play with my dogs, the humans FREAK OUT!!! They scream at the top of their lungs at their animals, cuss them, grab them and drag them inside.

    For trying to play with my dogs. We have no leash or fence laws out here. What did these people expect? If they'll just frakkin' *relax* and let the dogs get acquainted, they'd be better off.

    The neighbor dogs' names are Austin and April. So it always sounds like they're screaming at kids. Weird. Very, very weird.

    Right out of the shell is good, but a high-quality Maryland crab cake will change your mind. PM me when you're in town! :D

    Your neighbor most likely had a slew of crab cakes in their fridge that were getting to be of dubious age. Then they elected to toss them over the fence and let the dog eat 'em in lieu of pitching them. I used to do this with my old neighbor's dog although with lunch meat. I took to refering to the dog as "turkey dog" because more often than not he got fed left over sliced turkey that was a little older than I felt comfortable eating. Now my own dog, Mia, gets that privilege.

    I doubt that the crab cakes are poison. After all, if your neighbor wanted to posion your dog, there are much more cost effective methods of accompliching that. I mean, dogs'll eat anything and there are hot dogs which are far cheaper than crab cakes.

    i think we should have a crab cake gtg!! if want cherie, we can wait until you make it up here, or we can just have another.

    i know my neighbor is crazy, however, it's been days since i've seen any traces of him at all. and being that he is a junkie in his late 60's early 70's i'm afraid he might be dead. i go through this about every other month. then somehow he appears...
    the good thing is that he has stopped driving his cab, so we no longer see him nodding in his cab parked crooked and taking up two spaces in front of the house anymore...
    i hope grady is okay....

    If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

    But, if life gives you crap, for the love of God please don't attempt to make a beverage out of it.
