Anyone ever read the Swallows and Amazons series by Arthur Ransome?

That crab is just what I imagine in the book called 'Peter Duck'--the third in the series.
In this book, which is a story imagined by the children from Swallows and Amazons, Peter Duck is a character who was stranded on an island with giant land crabs and slept in the trees to avoid being eaten by them!

I never thought such a thing could really exist. . .

So it's Greenman's fault that you're going to have nightmares tonight about being chased by giant crabs?

I'm still searching for an old post that I wanted to update. I'm having a heck of a time finding the one I'm looking for, but some how I came across this thread--you'd be surprised what an innocent search can pull up.

When I saw the second photo (with the garbage can), I *had* to bump this up for others who missed it the first time--as I did. (I doubt I'd have forgotten an image like that!

That thing is HUGE!
If you know the approximate date that you had posted whatever it is you're searching for you could back track into your posts to locate it.

Good idea...I'll try that tomorrow...it is getting pretty late.

I am trying to find something that I probably posted that got off topic from a thread, so it is rather hard to find. We were talking about creating a children's book or something. (I tried "children's book" and got all sorts of things...including this thread, I think.)

Hmmmm It wasn't in my whitetail thread was it?
I recall someone talking about putting It (or maybe it was something other) that I wrote about into print.

No, it was long before that...and that is something *you* should do. What I'm thinking of is something *I* should do.

Thanks for trying 'though.

Ohhhh I thought it might have been a link involved in the conversation you may have been searching for.
Nothing I can help you out with then unless I'd have further info on the topic to follow. Any more clues?
You know I love trying to solve mysteries.

The only thing I can think of is that I suggested a story for children to help them connect with the natural environment and growing natives to attract wildlife. It was suggested that *I* write it because it was my idea. I declined...although I have always wanted to do it...and illustrate it to.
