Crabby Monday...Beachnut Wanderings

Hello, Blogville Darlings.     It's me, your Beachnut girl, here to visit with you today.

It seems our splendid Shelldon has been buried for 87 years, but really it has been about 3 months now.   Goodness, I must admit that I am a tad concerned for her, but we cannot disturb her now.   She most assuredly buried in order to molt and a hermit crab busy molting should always be given her privacy.  Teeheehee      I know that The Hands are certainly concerned for her, but crabs our size sometimes take up to two months for the entire process.   Our Shelldon had a ginormous molting bubble that we all saw when she changed shells just before burying.   The molting bubble is a sack of loose skin that stores nutrients and water for us so that we have everything we need while we are buried for our molt.   My, aren't we fabulous and fascinating ladies?!?    POL     So, we must figure that our Shelldon is simply enjoying her alone-time and will emerge when she is ready to premier her newly freshened up self.  

Meanwhile, I've had our trendy crabitat all to myself.   Oh, I've had great crabby girl fun wandering around and enjoying our hidey holes, our loft and all of the gourmet foodables.    Teeheehee

 The Hands made this ritzy hut from a real coconut!

Our loft is the most stylish of our crabitat decor.     The stairs are natural hardwood, of course.   We still have our glamorous See Beautiful decoration from our darling Goose.    

 These long and lovely leggies are perfect for climbing around our loft!  

So, that's a little peek at life in the crabitat here at Sarge's house!  
Speaking of Sarge, he whispered to me that he now has 25 entries in his upcoming Cattle STAMPede for the Blogville Rodeo!    Goodness that's so very fabulous and we crabby girls are ready too.

The deadline to enter your cattle brand request is midnight on July 1st.   Please surf back to his older posts for information and all sorts of hints and symbols and lettering ideas to help you design your own exclusive brand.  

Until next week,

Ciao and Little Pinches,
Beachnut (and Shelldon)

I had a sack of stored nutrients and water butts the peeps called it a fat belly and put me on a diet!!!!!
I'm looking forward to seeing Shelldon in her new outfit...I wonder what sort of fashion statement she'll make? Had she been studying the pantone colour charts?

Oh Beachnut, you seem to be enjoying your alone time in the crabitat. I sure hope Shelldon emerges from the molt soon. It seems like it is taking a long time. I sure hope everything is okay.

We hope Shelldon is okay. We'd probably be digging her up to see. Hopefully, she'll be up soon to enjoy that wonder Crabitat with you.

We know you are in good hands with the Hands! Two months to molt, gee that is a long time. We hope everyone is okay!

Your Pals,

So Shelldon is taking her sweet time premiering the new improved Shelldon huh? Gosh Beachnut, you should have held a lottery for us all to guess "WHEN WILL SHELLDON APPEAR?".......HAHAHA.....I say it will be in 8 more days. So there.

Hugs, Sammy

I do so hope Shelldon comes out of his moody molting phase so you can enjoy the Rodeo together. Perhaps the fireworks on the 4th of July will wake her.
Thanks for being a friend
