What Are You Waiting For?

This little seagull (or should I say big fat seagull?) wants you to get on over to the Eastern Shore and see what's happening in Crisfield.

We have some "cool" things coming up. This is all the time I had for tracking down events. If you have an event coming up email me and I will add you to the list of wonderful things to do in Crisfield. Whoo hoo! There's a party somewhere all summer long.

Well I'm waiting for the inevitable windfall rendering me independently wealthy enough to travel the globe - trust me, Crisfield is at the top of the list!

A Scattering said...

Dang Patty, you live in one busy place! Sounds like a LOT of fun.

Patty said...

Come on over J9. When I win the lottery I will bring all my blogging friend here and treat them to crabs and Smith Island cake!

Patty said...

A Scattering: Come on down and join us. Bring Gray. He will love our cats.

willow said...

He's a handsome guy, that seagull!

In response to your comment, we've had some strange electronics stuff going on at the manor, too.

So, your cats see dead mice?! I am laughing SO hard!!!

Patty said...

Willow: Yes. They little ghost mice.

Joanne said...

Jaws on the dock! Yikes, don't sit too close to the edge!

Patty said...

Joanne: I don't think we have to worry about sharks but we have some mighty big crabs around here.

Cindy said...

Hi Patty. Thanks for visiting my blog and for the nice comment. I love the Seagull. He's gorgeous.

gigi said...

Wow! How awesome is your town?!?
Those are some really fun activities. I want to come Labor Day weekend. I'm still trying to get the Sweetheart to agree :)

Patty...can you check the dates please?!?! I think they're wrong! :)

Patty said...

Loves Crisfield: I can use an extra set of eyes. Thanks. That's what happens when I don't use two monitors and the clock is ticking.

Can't wait to get my replacement computer up and running (next weekend!)

Unfortunately the clock will still keep ticking.

Keep checking back. And lemme know if I need to make corrections - everybody join in! This is your blog, too. I can use all the help I can get.
