Clam Digging

By Michael Landon  

 
   Clam digging is fun.
   You always want your shovel facing the ocean because when your shovel hits the ground it scares the clam and you will see the hole shoot out bubbles.

After seeing the bubbles dig your hole four inches toward the ocean.  Dig a hole about elbow length deep with your shovel. From there you dig with your hands and hopefully you get the clam.

Fifteen clams is the limit.  I only get 1 limit (15 clams)

You might get a group of friends or you might go by yourself go out to the beach when its claim digging season.

There is a  clamming police force of sorts there--is a big truck there in front see if you native or not.

As a native I am entitled to dig on p what are widely considered better spots that e beach that have more clams. non-native u have to go to the other side of the beach sometimes If not they will send you back up the hill  and you have to wait until everybody’s gone then you could dig.

It is also possible to sell your claims for money. You get a lot of limits you could go to the big truck and give some limits you get paid like 200 to 300 dollars for like 200 pounds that’s how much you get paid or you could just take them home with you and clean them yourself and eat them but you want to leave them in hot water for 3 hours then you clean them again and deep fry them or grill them .

You guys should go clam digging someday its hard at first but when you get used to it you get it  my first time I went clam digging was when I was five I only got 1 limit that day I think that’s good for my first time at the age five I am still clam digging to this day.  

My father clam dug in Alaska. It is harder there. There is ice to dig through, and the clams are harder to find.

You might get a group of friends or you might go by yourself go out to the beach when its clam digging season.

There is a clamming police force of sorts there--is a big truck there in front to see if you're native or not.

As a native I am entitled to dig on what are widely considered better spots where the beach has more clams. Some times when you're not a Native American you will have to go to the other side of the beach. If you don't move you will be sent back up the hill and you'll wait until the beach is cleared to go dig.

It is also possible to sell your clams for money.

If you get more than your own limit you could go to the (game warden's) big truck and get paid close to 200-300 dollars in exchange for your clams. Or you can take them home to clean and eat them yourself, but if you do you want to leave them in hot water for 3 hours then clean them again. After that it's your choice to either deep fry or grill them.


You guys should go clam digging someday. It's hard at first, but when you get used to it you get it. My first time I went clam digging I was five years old and I caught the limit! I think that’s good for my first time at the age five. I'm still clam digging to this day.

Best B-Baller Ever?
 Larry Bird vs Michael Jordan
By Jack Adams and Michael Landon
 
Jack Adams:

   Larry Bird is the greatest player of all time, the best player the world has ever seen.  Bird could not only score, but he made his team better with his amazing passing, which his made his merely average teammates into better players.

 

 

Starting in college, Bird revealed his greatness by taking an otherwise weak Indiana State basketball team to the National Championship game.

 

 

   He continued his winning ways in the pro’s, winning a title in his second season (Jordan took 7 seasons to win his first). He also won three NBA championships with the Boston Celtics,  was a 12 time all-star, and won three straight NBA MVP trophies. His level of competition was tougher then Jordan’s. His MVP awards came despite his Celtics competing with Magic and Kareem and the 80’s Lakers.  Bird was a great player. He was the greatest player ever.

 

 

    Bird was famously slow, but that made his unstoppableness more amazing.  His basketball IQ allowed him to look one way and make an amazing pass in the opposite direction. You couldn’t foul him—he was a 90 percent free throw shooter for  his whole career, as well as a 50% shooter from the field.

 

Michael Landon:

Who is the best Basketball player in the world? Michael Jordan! He won three straight NBA titles twice (for 6 total), five NBA MVP awards, six NBA Finals MVP awards . Drafted out North Carolina, he was an immediate NBA superstar. His greatness is visible to anyone who can log into Youtube  with spectacular dunks and an unstoppable offensive game, including hanging a record 63 points on Larry Bird’s Celtics in the playoffs.

 

 

Coming back from retirement Jordan’s  95-96 team set the NBA record with 72 wins, and then won three more NBA championships, doubling Bird’s three rings. And, now that he is retired, Michael Jordan is reportedly worth 500 million dollars.
