    This post touched a lot of memories. I loved catching crabs alongside my mama and daddy. My mama is still alive, and she truly makes the best gumbo. I never quite get it as good as hers. Yikes Anne! Should I even tell you that the sun is shining and it s 75 degrees down here at the beach?? Supposed to be even hotter tomorrow so I guess our winter is at least un-officially over!
