My friend Michael Hoffman seems to be a minority of one eating the eyes and lungs of the softshells or is it that his memory is failing him ?

Cheers, John

My memory is fine. I'm sorry if the way we ate softshell sandwiches along the Connectict shore runs counter to the way others prefer them, but I've never had control over that. I'll admit that I am one of the wimps who always turned his sandwich around and began eating from the back side. By the way, one of the most interesting sights along the waterfront at Savin Rock back about three million years ago, when I was a mere tad, was the ten-crab stack of fried softshells on the outside front counter of Raffaello's. It was from this stack of crabs, all with their eyes on and facing the customer, that one's sandwich order was put together.
