...After spending several days in the brig, because none of the pirates had anything remotely usable as a lock pick, the crew was finally released and told never to show their faces anywhere near Rio again. Oh, the idle threats of the oil & gas pipeline companies. We're pirates and don't use your oil nor your gas!! Take that!! We rely on the wind which we hope is favorable as we're to cross the ocean once again. While making the sail, the crew now decides they need to be prepared for any situation and begin filling their pockets with pretty much everything but the kitchen sink. Mainly because ships don't have kitchens, they have galleys. As the final corkscrews and bottle openers are stashed in the last of the pockets, the ship journeys up Oslofjord. "Captain, are we sure the birthday boy is actually in town?" "Yes, why wouldn't he be here?" "Well, Captain, he just became an uncle again so maybe he's in OZ." "No way, or should I say Norway... Get it?" "No." "It's a joke. No way - Norway..." "Sorry Captain, still not getting it." "Oh forget it! He's here." "Captain, could you explain the joke again? We'd really like to get it, really." "No, it's too late. You all missed it. Besides, we have more important things to do right now." "But Captain, we like understanding your jokes." "Okay, one more time, I said no way and we're in Norway - both similar in sound..." "Sorry Captain, we're just not getting the relationship. Could you try another one?" "No."

And with that the crew gives up trying to understand the Captain's strange sense of humor and decides to start singing instead...

Was down in Mexico where I had roamed
Not too much Spanish by then had I known
I found myself in a terrible mess
There were ten bad banditos, one gringo too rich

I was surrounded no where could I run
They had los pistols and I had no gun
I searched my memory for something to say
I had to think quick this could be my last day

Una mas cerveza una mas cerveza
Una mas cerveza was all I could say
Una mas cerveza una mas cerveza
Una mas cerveza just let me go my way

I saw a cantina so I went inside
I found a dark corner a good place to hide
I was no safer when I looked around
Not una mas gringo was there to be found

A small crowd had gathered around to my chair
"los puercos prohibidos" they pointed and stared
They gave me a guitar but what could I say
Oh yes I remember one Mexican phrase

Una mas cerveza una mas cerveza
Una mas cerveza was all I could say
Una mas cerveza una mas cerveza
Una mas cerveza just let me go my way

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Heres hoping you have a wonderful day (March 25th) filled with family, friends and cerveza and mas cerveza!!!!!!!!! Going fishing to celebrate??? I hear the fish are hungry for those worms about now unless Norway is still a frozen tundra...

And as the crew wanders off to find cerveza for themselves, Captain Isa decides that it's time to work on her jokes. No one seems to understand them which has her vexed. Come on - who wouldn't get No way - Norway....

Happy birthday, Sam! Enjoy your special day and don't overdo the mas cervezas, or you may be upchucking on Cap'n Isa's seaworthy vessel...

And thank you for yet another great year of TP.

Well, it has just been pointed out to me that I am truly brain-dead and need a vacation... Seriously, I need a vacation and Beerman needs one even more so. It is NOT Sam's birthday, but rather Malia's birthday instead. So, my sincerest apologies and everyone can now laugh heartily at my inability to read my own list correctly.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MALIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's hoping that you have a wonderful day filled with all sorts of things but no cerveza. Nope, you're too young for that kind of thing at the moment. Instead, have lots of cake and ice cream and get all sugared up so you can drive your parents crazy all day (and all night)!!!!!!

Thank you travelmama for the heads-up on my mistake. See, that's why you are the real TP Mom and I'm not!!!! ;)

Sam - see you in May if I don't have a complete meltdown altogether before then.

Happy birthday Malia! I hope your parents spoil you rotten today. I'm sure they will. ;)

After all these years of thinking Peter's birthday was in May, I finally thought I'd got Sam's birthday into my head only to find this thread...

Happy Birthday, little Malia! Hope you and your family had a wonderful day together.
