    I’ll shake your hand after you wash it.

    He’s the kind who just tosses things aside.

    I tried it raw once, no real taste and too many uncomfortable feelings as I chewed.

    @Tina C.

    There’s plenty more—around 125 pages or so, to be exact!

    I hope this isn’t a once-a-week strip. It will be daily won’t it?

    Oyster shucking. Ahhh I remember it well being from my Maryland homeland. Yep. That’s the place that spit me out.
    And if you can shuck oysters that quick you are good.
    Blue gill crab, oysters stewed or boiled. Beware eating fresh. Bad juju with the stomach messer uppers.
    His knife however is at the wrong angle. And would be unable to slurp if the muscle is not cut. Darn thing will hang there on the shell like a luggie.

    And silt and sand and everything else that goes through one of those. Which is everything we toss into the bay. Motor oil, gas, diesel, ships waste (Oysters love that) Think about it the next time you slurp one.
    (But I still love to eat em)

    Keep it up Captain. You have a fan in me. I am from that area along time ago. Now live in Texas. Not much oysters here. They try to use bull testicles and call them Rocky Mountain Oysters but a true Marylander knows and can taste the difference.

    I wish I could do it daily! The pages (as you’ll see in a page or two) are big, Tintin-style, four-tier pages that take me between 15-20 hours to complete. So… it’s weekly for now. I’m gonna try to up my pace a bit in the new year and if I build up enough of a backlog, I’ll switch to twice a week.
