...Upon (finally) collecting the beleaguered and watered-down-sangria-sodden crew from the Molson Brewery and Poutine Museum, Isa revokes Twinkly the Driver's recently acquired driver's license and hustles said Twinkly the Driver onboard ship. (Tis a sad state of affairs when good pirates have to resort to bad sangria. Ah well, just one more reason to be leaving Montreal in a hurry...)

After 36 hours stuck in the duldrums off Papua New Guinea, the sun-scorched ship, with half-dead crew, sort of stealthily sails into Aukland Harbor... Upon disembarking, the crew begins to loudly whisper:

Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday Newest Member of the Birthday Club, Bex76,
Happy Birthday to you,
Now where's the rum????

Thankfully, the crew knew all the words this time and were pleased to whisper it in English. Isa apologizes for the lack of sound but 36 hours in the duldrums has parched their throats and left them speechless. Not a bad thing if one really thinks about it...

Here's hoping you have a wonderful birthday (May 17th) with oodles of rum, oodles of pressies, oodles of food, oodles of cake and oodles of whatever you boyfriend may have in store for you!!! Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!

...As Isa goes off to procur more rum for their next voyage, a parchment flutters down and lands in front of her boot. Isa picks it up and gazes at it ponderously... AHA! A pirate map of great import has found it's way into my hands, she thinks to herself - but upon further inspection, realizes it's a map to Mermaids Bar & Strip Club at 13 Gore Street. Again, Isa thinks to herself, AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why can't this group stay in one place for more than 5 minutes??? We have 24 hours to get to our next destination and 1,485,307 miles of ocean before us...

Quoting steff

Wow, lots of people seem to be born in May! Happy birthday, bex! Have a great one!

It's the largest group for one month with 12 total. We have 2-3 sets of same day birthdays too. Stay tuned for the next BD wishes - one of those sets of same day births.

Isa now returns this thread to it's regularly scheduled topic.
