Good shot, oops … love the backdrop, especially the commercial art piece of the Morton’s Salt Girl … “When it rains it pours.” What’s behind the title … was the conch indeed filched from somewhere other than Tampa Bay.
Looks like an ordinary Horse Conch to me … we’d pluck ’em out of the the Bay, bring them home, put them on the ground inside a loop of fishing line, when they emerged from their shell, tighten the loop, hang it from the tree and when the shell drops you have a clean conch shell to polish up and good tough piece of Horse Conch for chowder.
That was 60 years ago … my how time flies when you’re waiting for fresh conch chowder.

Leave it to Richard to abuse a conch shell. Watch out the Internet vigilante shamers don’t get you! 😀

Street wares of an island nation, too lovely, illustrating some lovely story about pirates I think.

This guy spun such a good tale about falling asleep in the park and having his wallet stolen and needing to get back up to Clearwater that I gave him five bucks for creativity (and a picture). 😀
