I remember the time Lanelle, Jay, Glorie Ann, Penny and Kay walked in Seabrook to Todville Road where Galvestion Bay comes in and there was a crab (not too tiny of a crab) and Lanelle found some string and tied it on the crab's claw and walked it all the way back to Mildred and Anton Baros' house which was about a dozen blocks. For a crab that was a long walk and I have no idea how she kept him on the string. Thank goodness no one got pinched because he was large enough to make a painful pinch.
