Captain Crab's Thoughts From the Road

I drove by a sign today that said "Flea Market."
I have a couple of questions about this:

1. Who buys fleas, and for what purpose?
2. What is the going market price for fleas?

Captain Crab's Thoughts From the Road

Just as President Bush was loyal to his loyal liar, Scooter Libby, I was loyal to my wonderful daughter, H, and voted for Pat Neshek for a spot on the American League All-Star Team. And I was happy to do it.

Yesterday was a lot of driving day in Northern Iowa, so I was able to listen to the Twins on WNAX, Yankton, SD. Great game. The Twins came back to tie the score. Then, in the bottom of the eigth, Pat Neshek in to relieve. I am pumped, until the 2-run homer that put the Yankees up 7-5. The Twins did make a game of it in the ninth before falling 7-6.

I am not sure voting for the Neshek guy was a great move now.

Captain Crab's Thoughts From the Road

At this point I am still a little groggy headed to put down in words what actually transpired Thursday night in IC. Flenker and I both killed off some of our weaker brain cells, had interesting conversations about a plethora of subjects, and both made it to our respective homes. Fortunately for me, that involved a short walk to the elevator and ride to the 3rd floor of the Sheraton. The Flenker had a 5 or 10 minute walk (he told me but it has faded from my memory). He was lucky enough to stop at a convenience store and purchase some sort of sandwich, however. I think a sandwich would have really helped me.
