BTW: Everyone did a great job with their cemetery photos. If you are not a participant of our weekly shoot outs (if we still have any after Butler and Bagman get us all killed searching for lions and tigers next week - inside joke for participants), we hope we will have more people join us in our town shoot outs. It is a great way to go round the world with the click of a mouse and see what other towns and cities across the globe have to offer. Of course, in Crisfield, we think we are #1!
So here are some random shots to make you smile:
Our daffodils are finally blooming. I took these in front of our post office yesterday
Here is our post office
Here is the nice guy who did not run over me while I was taking the picture of the post office. Try to stand in front of your post office and see how many honks or mean looks you get. I didn't even see him until I turned around to go back to my car. He was just sitting there patiently, not even wanting to ride in front of the camera and mess up my photo. How great is that?
This may seem like work to you but to Mr. Sterling, who has been raking the pine needles from the same yard for about 40 years, says it is something he looks forward to. I told you the people of Crisfield are hardworking people. It's in their blood.
This is the time of year that everyone in Crisfield begins the rites of spring by raking pine needles and leaves, and planting their flower and vegetable gardens.
Nothing says spring like driving around and seeing all the crabbing gear coming out of storage. Crab season opens in Maryland on April 1. The crabbers are cleaning boats, readying gear, and preparing for a new season. If crabs be ye thing, matey, bring ye boat, car, or plane to Crisfield for some good grub. Argghh!
Moving on to summer, here are some photos to get your mind in vacation mode. While you are planning that much needed vacation, check out our Chamber site on the side bar, or visit our events site for upcoming events.
And remember, no will run over you if you stand in the middle of the street to take a picture, and if someone honks they will be waving, "Howdy."
I was going to close with that, but let me tell you a quick story. I took a feature shot for my newspaper the other day (I can't post features here)and the woman who was in the photo was from Woodstock, NY. She had never been to Crisfield before.
She had come down here to place 3 abandoned chickens and a rooster with a good home. She was waiting on the mail boat to take her to Smith Island. She had some time to spare and got to meet a few people, or they got to meet her. She said she had never seen so many friendly people in one place. That sums up Crisfield pretty well.
