Leaving My Wife for a Crab - Life on the Kitsap Peninsula WA

Real Estate Agent with Fathom Realty West Sound WA State 52404

 Yes, it's true. I can't deny it. I love crabs. And not just any ole' crabs, mind you. But Dungeness Crabs. The delicious 'mouth-watering' variety that is plentiful here in the scenic Pacific Northwest.

When the crabbing season rolls around here on the Puget Sound WA, you can typically find me out cruising the deep, clear waters of Hood Canal in my trusty C-Dory, in search of the illusive 'Dungie.'

But the question I have to ask myself is this, "Would I ever leave my wife for a Crab?"

To find out the answer to this puzzling question, go to Crabbing in the Hood.

OMG - that picture of you kissing the crab is almost as good as Rick's kissing the lobster - you guys need to meet someday and leave your wives for your respective crabs and lobsters - Keep on branding, that crab is beautiful!

I'll take my lobsters over your crabs any day but I am sure we both would have a great time chowing down on our preferred catch.

I love shellfish in general, but I usually avoid them out of concern for my shellfish allergic husband. I refuse to a chance on his life for a few moments of gastronomic pleasure.

I say if you can get personal branding out there that people recognize and generally like, I say go for it!  If crab is your thing, then let people know it. One of the most successful real estate agents in my community has a logo of him fly-fishing with the text "Your Skagit County Expert".  When I first saw it, I thought he was a fishing guide, but whatever works and it works for him VERY successfully... I'm sure its a great ice-breaker...  "Sparky" made you a distinctive logo... Use it for all its worth!

I say use it and put a recipe on the back of your business card, or a crab dinner for every listing client, something...

I've been working on some personal branding of my own... (My apologies for marketing my stuff on your blog, but it seems relevant.)  Here's the logo design I've come-up with... My dog "Jester" goes just about everywhere with me and all of my customers meet him... So, he's on the logo too...  What do you think??

Keep crabbin' my friend.  Even if you don't advertise it they will know about it and start joking with each other.  I'm known as a coffee nut.  (Only because I don't live near the coast!!!  I LOVE lobster and crab!)  My friends and clients joke about it all the time.  "if she's not at the office, have you checked Starbucks?"  For you...well he probably have crabs.... :)

Do not want to miss the crab recipies...Yum!  Nothing better than picking crabs, and drinking beer on the water.

Way to go Rich.  Get them crabs.  My brother spent six seasons on the Bering Sea Crabbers...I spent the season in a Bristol Bay Gillnetter.  Both are a lot of fun, but the gillnetter is safer.

My sister calls crabs, lobsters etc "sea bugs" and refuses to eat em.  Leaves more for the rest of us.

Whoo hoo!!  I love crab!  As a matter of fact, most people think I am nuts when I say that I would take a crab over lobster any day.  Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy lobster, but even though eating crab is more work, it is worth every minute...mmmmmmm...

Ahhh...such a beautiful place to live and crab!  I had a friend with a home on Orcas Island and we caught crabs on the beach!  C-Dory's are such great and cute boats, my brother has been thinking about getting one.  While we suffer a drought and heat wave I will think about you enjoying such natural tranquility!

Well. You know me. Branding is very important in this business.

I feel so strongly about that, that I have been known to nickname folks around AR just to brand them.

So...That being the case can I call you "Crabby Rich" ? :)

P.S. Could you please tell "Code Monkey" to knock it off? It's taking forever to submit comments :)

TLW - you can call whatever you like, just not 'late for dinner!'

(I think the Code Monkey is busily correcting issues with the new Ad program)

You passed the test. I deleted this part of my comment...

"I know I can call you anything except late for dinner"...

Blog Boy and I are laughing because I deleted it and you said it :)

Think you are safe. BB is branding himself with a garbled voice hussy that would still be alone after closing time... every closing time. You see, compared to some of the branding we endure, a crab can be a welcomed, beautiful thing.
