For the past few months Paul and his friends Alex and Tommy have been racing hermit crabs on racetracks they made from Legos. The first track was downstairs in the living room but it was dismantled in the great living room cleanup that preceded buying and installing the new IMAC. Now the boys are building a new improved racetrack up in Paul's bedroom.
Today they raced the six crabs they could find in the Crabitat; two were apparently MIA, presumably hiding deep under the sand. "Mary" - -Paul named all his crabs after people he likes- - came in fourth in today's race.
