Crawdad attack!!!!

9 posts in this topic

I have a small aquarium with my daughter's pet turtle in the lower level of the house. I caught a crawdad in a minnow trap last week and thought it would be an interesting addition to the turtle tank. My mom and stepdad spent the night on Friday. I heard a scream from the bathroom on the lower level on Saturday morning.

It turns out that the crawdaddy had crawled out of the tank at some point and was crawling around the floor. It ambushed my half asleep stepdad on Saturday morning and double pinched him on his barefoot. I don't think I've ever seen my mom laugh so hard....

Well I have a bad update to this story. After the attack yesterday morning, I tossed the crawdaddy back in the tank. I'm going fishing today, so I was thinking of using him as bait. Of course it was stupid to assume that it wouldn't escape again. Just checked the tank and it ain't in there. The wife wasn't happy about the stunt yesterday, so I better find it before something else happens....I'll keep the post updated.....

Now all you have to do is get a bushel of rusties and have a boil and and your step dad can have the last word.

And that brings me to; Does any body know where I can get some fresh rusties up north to eat. Seriously.

    • I clearly stated protest marches and not specifically the womens march. So,knowing that do you still disagree with me?
    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers.
