  2. Aimathena Aimathena, 4 years ago
    Heehee Thank you Karen. *He's* my mini me ;^)
  3. Aimathena Aimathena, 4 years ago
    And the Crabs taste a lot better than they look
  4. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 4 years ago
    Wonderful post! Makes me very hungry....love seafood! Have you caught the crabs yourself?
  5. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 4 years ago
    I love fishing that's why I'm asking :-)
  6. ATTWOOD ATTWOOD, 4 years ago
    My son and hubby got 16 blue swimmers last week.will be last catch of the season I think now cold has hit here
  7. Vintagefran Vintagefran, 4 years ago
    Hi Aims, what a lovely new profile pic. Handsome boy, he takes after his mum. I've never heard of a bushel basket before. I'm googling it now:) Was the crab delicious? Mmm one of my favorites
  8. Aimathena Aimathena, 4 years ago
    :^) Good Morning Everyone,

    Elizabethan, yes we catch & cook our own every year.

    Attwood, we're Topsy turvy. Your season ends, ours begins.

    Nuts, thank you very much for the very kind words.

    VF, thank you for the super sweet compliment, I will pass it on to him. I truly appreciate you my wonderful friend. Chesapeake Bay Blue Crabs are the best IMHO but than again I grew up eating them, so my opinion may be bias ;^)

    Many thanks to everyone who loved

    Look at that handsome devil! Adorable!
  10. Aimathena Aimathena, 4 years ago
    Good Morning AR xo
    He's eating up the compliments this morning. Thanks so much. I actually added the photo because you and I talk about our children so often :^D
    Hope you're having a great day!
  11. toolate2 toolate2, 4 years ago
    Love it Aims! You know I live on the Eastern Shore but I haven't picked any crabs in years... You've inspired me!! Love the new picture as well. Your son definitely looks like you... And that's a good thing!
  12. Aimathena Aimathena, 4 years ago
    Good Morning Toolate, Aww so kind of you, thanks so much. We crab the Wye every year. Love it there, so beautiful and peaceful. The Hubster is looking daily for a waterfront place on the Eastern Shore. We crab the Wye every year. Love it there, so beautiful and peaceful. Thanks for taking time to comment :^)
  13. pops52 pops52, 4 years ago

  18. Aimathena Aimathena, 4 years ago
    Yummy lil pinchers
  19. Manikin Manikin, 4 years ago
    I look better in a tub like that LOL :-) since I don't eat crab or meat . Thanks for stopping at my post in my tub Aim ! xo
  20. Aimathena Aimathena, 4 years ago
    Mani, you certainly do look better in these baskets than the mean olé looking crabbies. LoL
  21. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 4 years ago
    I haven't seen these in umpteen years. If you want to preserve them in a natural way get some boiled linseed oil and brush it on heavy inside and out. NOT RAW LINSEED OIL.
  22. tom61375, 4 years ago
    Oh my & how!! =^°
  23. Aimathena Aimathena, 4 years ago
    Sorry Tom, I tried waiting for the ski fishing trip.

    fhrjr2, thanks for the tips but bushel baskets are still readily available in our crab/fishing area. We usually switch out every season, every other at the least.
  24. LOUMANAL LOUMANAL, 4 years ago
    That last photo with the Beer & Knife is a work of Art in Itself. I like your family photo a lot!! RER(BOB)
  25. Aimathena Aimathena, 4 years ago
    BOB, thank you very much for those lovely compliments. They're truly appreciated.
  26. Aimathena Aimathena, 4 years ago
    PS I cannot take credit for the hubster's one creative photo staging ;^)
  27. kerry10456 kerry10456, 4 years ago
    Now I'm hungry for seafood.... forget the cookies, lol, send some butter and crab
  28. Aimathena Aimathena, 4 years ago
    LoL I wish I could Kerry, maybe if I get my hands on some dry ice. Not literally, of course.
  29. kerry10456 kerry10456, 4 years ago
    HeHe,,, It's the thought that counts Aim, I'll sane some crawfish/crawldads and have me some fresh water lobster then... :-)
  30. tom61375, 4 years ago
    Oh I'd have done the same. Crabbing beats a ski trip any day. I can't wear my SPEEDO when skiing…brrrrr! =^}
  31. Aimathena Aimathena, 4 years ago
    Hmm Crabs, shrimp (here) and lobster's. Yum!

    Omgoodness Tom, I had forgotten all about that speedo and sirens
  32. toolate2 toolate2, 4 years ago
    Went to Waterman's in West OC Sunday but alas, nobody else wanted to pick crabs....So I had some very good crab cakes! Not the best, but pretty good...
  33. tom61375, 4 years ago
    What'dya do, fall in? Where you at? =^'
  34. RonM RonM, 4 years ago
    Blue Crabs from Maryland are my favorite. I fry the softshells too.
  35. Love.anything.old Love.anything.old, 4 years ago
    Love this picture. Reminds me of when we go visiting my sis and bro-in-law in eastern Maryland in August and we go crabbing using a net and bushel baskets. Nothing in the world like freshly caught Maryland blue crabs and my bro-in-law, born and raised in MD, cooks them to perfection using Old Bay, of course. l.a.o.
  36. tom61375, 4 years ago
    Where you at??????? =^`
  37. Trey Trey, 3 years ago

  38. toolate2 toolate2, 3 years ago
    Still on the shore?
  39. Trey Trey, 3 years ago
    I got a couple of these old baskets from the farm yesterday:)
  40. MyFavoriteTreasures MyFavoriteTreasures, 3 years ago
    That is how they are used in my part of the world also!
