I took the day off to take the family to The Royal - as its known. This is an annual agricultural extravaganza that has now become the biggest in North America. The kids love the day and last year we came across a stall selling hermit crabs!
I guess if you cannot take home a pig a hermit crab is a great substitute!
They were back again this year, selling crabs and acquariums and doing a roaring trade - who would have guessed it? But they must have done their homework looked at the demographics and taken a gamble which is paying off handsomely - no direct competition either!
