Marine Corps League Crab Feed!

This evening I went to my first crab feed! I have actually never eaten crab before, so I was a little wary if I would like this or not. I love imitation crab, but that doesn't count. So the Diablo Valley Marine Corps League was holding their 6th annual crab feed, and it is a fundraiser for the year for them. Some of the money goes towards mailing packages overseas for the troops, and some to Toys for Tots. The MCL bought a table for Chuck's shop, so we got to go for free. The other tables were sold out, and so over 300 people came to this event in Brentwood. It was pretty cool. Mostly everyone there was either retired Marine Corps, Navy, Army, or Navy. It was fun to watch all the cute ole guys talking about back in the day stuff. They were all pretty cool. They had a live and silent auction, and I bid on a pearl necklace. But alas it sold for $150, I guess that was a lot more than my measly $30 starting bid! lol We had a lot of fun, and I made a pretty good friend from one of the wives here. Her husband is a reservist, so I won't see her to often, but she was pretty cool. And her and her husband are thinking about going active duty. I was surprised that it was a Marine Corps event, and no one got hammered. In fact we were able to enjoy our entire evening without Chuck having to babysit one of his Marines, and we didn't have to drive anyone home!! ;-O I know I was shocked to. That basically never ever happens! lol It was so nice. I got to meet Masterson's girl, and she was pretty cool. I think those two will be getting married pretty darn soon. lol Within the next year at least! But we approve, she is sweet, not obnoxious, and seems like she might be able to handle the roles of a Marine Corps wife. lol The crab was brought out, and well......It was all right. I wasn't that big of a fan of it, it was good, but not great. I didn't eat to much of it, and so ended up cracking crabs for Chuck, so he could just eat. I think he ate 4 or 5 crabs, and I got almost a whole one down! lol Pate's wife Melissa was trying to convince Chuck that we should have a baby, because we have been married 9 years and it's time, and then she can throw me a baby shower!! lol I don't think he bought that though. lol Oh well I guess I will just keep dreaming about this little boy. Well that is all for now. Here are a few pictures of the event. Sorry if a few are blurry....it's the best I could do. ;0)
