Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there.

In some parts of the country, family members are having trouble thinking of appropriate gifts for the occasion.

But not in Howard's coastal New Hampshire, where unique gift choices abound.

One if by land and two if by sea,

And I in the adjoining stall shall be.

And if yerfatma be present, that'll make three.

I'm very glad to hear that New Hampshire ingenuity has found a use for the invasive green crab. At first I thought this had something to do with a much smaller species of crabs. Once those things become established, they are very difficult to get rid of. One recommended cure was to rub sand and alcohol on the affected area. The crabs would drink the alcohol, get drunk, and stone each other to death with the sand. The Navy-recommended cure was a quick trip to sick bay for a bit of the delousing salve.
