    I like it and can not wait to see your new room. I think I need to twist your arm to go duck hunting some time.

    Only a Marylander would have a pair of blue crabs included in his trophy room! Oh how I miss a summer time crab feast, fingers bloodied and stinging from the old bay.

    Charlie, I've been deer hunting with him a bit, and he definitely makes an effort to show you a nice buck, even if it's laying on the ground in front of his stand! I am the guy he calls when he's gotten one and has no knife. And having seen the game room many a time, I can attest that those crabs would go high in Boone and Crockett if they had a category for them.

    Very nice. Im thinking of having a space of my own too. She has given me a green light for a 5x5m space in the garden to guild on. How big is your cave? I only ask Im not too sure if 5x5 would be enough!
