...Thinking everything would go smoothly, and that the navigator should be able to navigate the ship's course to it's next destination, Captain Isa took refuge in her quarters with some rum and a good book. Alas, she should not have been so confident. As rumor has it, the navigator thought there was clear passage all the way to the Pacific Ocean. (Au contraire.) Having sailed up the Hudson River, bypassed Lake Ontario (because they could), sailed through lakes Erie, Huron, Michigan (purely for sentimental reasons) and into Superior, the ship has run into a dead end. "Captain, how do we get to western Canuckistan from here? There's nothing but a so-called rocky beach in front of us." "We walk." "But Captain, that's a long way to walk and we've not much time." "Okay, then it's planes trains and automobiles." "But Captain, wasn't that just a John Candy movie?" "So. What's you're point? Pick one." A vote is taken by the crew members and the chosen mode of transportation was calling upon the Isa Manor Martini Blimp - again. Magically, the blimp arrives, is boarded and whisks the ( now air-sick) crew of pirates to British Columbia. "Captain, why is it British Columbia if the Canucks own it?" "Because it sounds better than Canuckistani Columbia." "Oh, good point, Captain."

And as the crew wonders about the Captain's answer, they do what they do...

Lake Huron rolls, Superior sings
In the rooms of her ice-water mansion.
Old Michigan steams like a young mans dreams;
The islands and bays are for sportsmen.
And farther below Lake Ontario
Takes in what Lake Erie can send her,
And the iron boats go as the mariners all know
With the gales of November remembered.

Okay - it was the only song the crew could remember that had to do with the Great Lakes...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRENDA(N)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you have a wonderful day (April 8th) filled with friends, family, no classes, no oil sand in your boots and lots of lentil cake!!!!!!!!!!! Have a good one!!!!!!!

...As the crew tries to find a happier song to sing, Captain Isa heads off to find the illusive Brenda(n) and give him a hug. Maybe even a martini or two...

..........and in a ridiculously bright flash of red and white light, accompanied by the one and only Michael Palin singing "I'm a Lumberjack", comes Beerman, resplendent in his brand new red and white speedo with the maple leaf on the front, and massive maple-leaf-shaped chestwig.......

Hallloooooooooo, Mr. B (n), it is I, Beerman, here to make Happy with you on this, your Most Happy of Happy Days!!! YAY!!!!!!

Feerst, please to accept this Genuine Mountie-Approved red jacket complete with epaulets and naked pictures of Margaret Trudeau romping on oil-sand laden beaches of Greater Northern Alberta with Famous German Shepherd Yukon King. Is nice, yes no? And this lovely pair of speedo-shaped jodhpurs to make go with red jacket. And finally, knee-length black stiletto boots officially sanctioned by Major General of Mountie Corps himself. You are make very stylish now.

Now for fun of all time. Feerst, please to consume beer with Beerman. Many pints later, we will make plunder on booty of oil sand robber barons, make capture of them, and make force of them to lick all of spilled oil from disastrous mining operations that have made spoil beautiful environment of Greater Northern Canuckistan. Then, we will make deny them bathroom facilities. Once all oil is licked clean, and mess made is made clean again, we will make ship them to Mr. Sir Richie Branson who will put them in rocket ship and send them all to way out in outer space. YAY!!!!! Please to have another pint.

Many Happy Days to you Mr. B.

......and in a not quite so bright anymore flash of red and white light, accompanied by the now-dying strains of "I'm a Lumberjack", waddles Beerman, slightly full of pints and needing to visit the Little Barbarians Room..........
