Friday 55 & Da Count-Avast!


Arg, ye scurvy scallawag and ye wenches.
It's time to get off yer pallets
and get yer festering hides topside.
Get to swabbing
and I'd best not catch you pilfering my rum
or lollygagging about,
ye sorry excuses for a crew,
else I'll be making you walk the plank.

It's Talk Like a Pirate Day!

*in the best piratey tradition, image pilfered shamelessly from

Short and sweet this week. I'm counting the chance to be silly. It's a great way to blow off steam.

Pirates! Could do with a splash and a cool off now I come to think of it.

I missed a lot this week! Your post about Dr. J. was terrific. I had two mentors in life and I just may copy your idea sometime.

We have the Gasparilla festival here in Tampa, which is essentially all about pirates. We get lots of practice.

Have a great weekend.
