You show me yours, I’ll show you mine.

.

Now, now… don’t get excited. I live in Maine, I’m talking lobster.

.

.

There was a state wide contest and even our local pub co owner joined in.

.

.

Ooh… a blue!

.

.

If you’ve never done it, or even thought about it? Trust me, lobstering is hard work.

.

.

You battle the weather, the equipment and the ocean. Fisherman die or are lost at sea every year. I’ve personally known two.

.

.

And yes..

.

.

Lobsters really are this small in the beginning.

.

.

Cuddly? Not so much.

But damn, they sure are tasty.

  1. I don’t eat seafood and when I see big lobsters I always wish they had an opp to live and get even larger. But I’ve got no qualms about it… can’t when I’m back to eating animals with no quality of life!

      1. That suuucks!
        I tried a bit of lobster at a big asian wedding. Had no thoughts about the taste, only the tingling in my mouth which made me think I’m probably allergic.

        I figure that at 58, there’s no benefit to finding out I like it… just a lot of money to be spent.

      2. I have a lot of food intolerances, with different levels of reactions. I initially thought I ate too many too close together but now I think it was a bug or ecoli or who knows what.

        When my allergies first started, I’d break out, head to toe, in massive hives. Through a fluke of events, I learned that I’l severely allergic to aspririn.. each exposure got worse. The last time, I felt my throat trying to close but I took a double dose of benadryl before it figure out how to do it.

      3. I always said my hives, which almost always started on my face, made me look like a wicked witch!!

        I’ve had GI issues for well over 30yrs and don’t even notice them anymore. When I did my first colonoscopy prep, it was literally no different than amy other day – and the exact reason I was getting the exam. They didn’t find an answer. But they also didn’t find cancer so… yay.

    1. No, and you wouldn’t want to eat those. Old and tough when they get that big, fisherman throw them back and let them live out their days in peace. After a selfie or two of course.
