Meet Mick

Earlier this month, we travelled to Virginia Beach for our annual visit...our 6th. In years past, we've come home with magnets, frisbees from DoughBoys, salt water taffy, and without fail, photos galore and fabulous memories.

This year, we brought home living crustaceans. Unlike Larry Dog, who came canine complete with a pluperfect name, our two new hermit crabs were name neutral for over a week. Ultimatum given, She-Twin named the smallish, adventurous, painted showman of a crab (pictured above) the appropriate moniker, Mick.

His tank-mate is unpolished. He's a bit heavier and slower moving, but makes his presence known.

We'll send a signed print copy of Twinspiration (now available on Kindle and Nook!) to the first to guess his name correctly.

Hint: As you can safely assume from She-Twin's musical predilections, he is named for a rocker...but he is NOT one of the Rolling Stones.

Good luck!

My guess was meatloaf, too

Cheryl Lage said...

Meatloaf and Rod are both fabulous guesses...alas, not correct!

Any more guesses?
