Bashful is Off Again!

It seems like these days, Bashful comes home for a short rest, some fun with the family and then he’s off again to the unknown.  He came home from Virginia, went to the beach with mom/dad and stayed with us for about a week.

He introduced us all to Virginia who came home with him from his last adventure with Stuart.  Don’t let her demure looks fool you.  That girl knows how to rock some red lipstick and has a wicked sense of humor.  We all got to socialize last week and listen to Bashful’s adventures with Stuart.  They did so much!  And there was some things we can’t mention 🙂


We all helped him pack to his next mysterious destination Friday night.  Saturday morning, we all said adios and watched as mom/dad took him off to the airport.

Mom says that it never gets easy.  Of course, she cried and waited until she saw his plane take off.  She’s such a softy!

So where will he end up at?

So far, this is where he has been:


His first adventure –

He went to see Easy ( in Plumieux, France.  Talk about trouble – snorts.  He had a grand time there.

So let’s add up the mileage shall we.  4,186.00 one way = total trip give or take 8,372.0 miles.




His second adventure –

He went to see Stuart ( in Richmond, Virginia.  He did get in lock down here and even ran away with Stuart!  He also got into some ‘scotch on the rock’ – snorts.

So let’s add up the mileage on this one.  543.7 one way = total trip give or take 1,087.40 miles




Where will he end up this time?  Looks innocently around – I’m not saying.  The little rock has traveled over 9,459.40 miles so far on these two trips.  All I will tell you is (A) he needs to start accruing frequent rock flying miles – snorts and (B) this destination is further than these two combined :0 shocker huh?

Stowaway on Vacation


No trip to Tybee Island is complete without first a visit to the famous Crab Shack where their logo is “Where the elite eat in their bare feet”. Mom and dad have been going here for years – much longer than they would like to admit because it would give away their age – snorts. You can eat ‘inside’ or ‘outside’ in nature near the water amidst the wondering cats that wonder the grounds.  Notice the pretty kitty in the picture to the right.  That’s one of the cats that wonder around while you are eating.  They don’t even beg for food… well they haven’t with mom/dad.  hhmm – maybe because mom/dad make the food disappear too quickly.  I’ll have to check into this.


This picture to the left is where you walk up to request a table. They were still decorated for pirate fest and it looks like one of the mateys didn’t make it past the gator – PLOL (piggy laughing out loud).

Mom and dad highly recommend this restaurant to newcomers or oldcomers. It’s a place to let down your hair, kick off your sandals and snarf down some excellent food. And if you know my mom/dad, they are creatures of habit. They always get the same meal when they go there – with the exception of maybe an appetizer or soup.



But before I talk about that, I have to tell you about a little stowaway they had. I can’t say that I’m surprised because I helped the little fellow jump in their suitcase – snorts. What? He wanted to go to the beach and he hadn’t seen the humans in a while. It was all in good fun.

So mom/dad found him all hidden in their suitcase so of course they had to rescue him. He was so thirsty from being hidden for the long four hours so he had to get a drink from dad’s soda at the restaurant. And of course after a potty break, he said he was extremely hungry. So mom/dad let him look at the menu so he could order first… you know being famished and all.



He ordered a huge platter of steamed food. I’m not sure who was more shocked when it came – us or the waitress – when he looked at it and said, “That’s mine, where’s ya’lls?” The little booger.

Mom and dad told him he couldn’t eat it all in one setting – my goodness he would be a boulder and unable to ride in the Smart car back home if he did. Upon that reasoning, he decided to share his feast with mom/dad.



There was potatoes, corn, crab legs, Jonah crab, sausage, shrimp and mussels. Mom described it in one word – delicious. They also had key lime pie but dad made it disappear so fast that mom didn’t get a chance to even take a picture of it!

After that mountain of seafood, mom and dad decided to take Bashful for a walk around the restaurant. I’ll tell you for a moment they thought they were down under visiting our good friend Fozzie at Of course, hers are bigger – snorts. But they were still scary and oh so close for picture taking. And yes, they are real my friends. Bashful got scared and hid back in mom’s pocket. He’s so shy.

They would actually let you feed these gators hanging out in the pond. Mom didn’t get a picture but there was actually a sign hung up that stated, “Do not feed your children to the alligators. They may make them sick.” Snorts.

I hope you enjoyed these – more to come later!
