...Having spent the better part of the last week visiting Vegasmike's favorite haunts, rollin' & tumblin' the dice, losing most of their earnings at Seven Card Stud and pulling the 5ยข "one-armed bandits - the crew as been recalled and have now boarded the Mount Isa Martini Blimp. "Captain, what's the rush? We were finally in the black at the roulette table." "We have somewhere to be very shortly so cash in your chips, collect your winnings and call it day. We definitely can't be late for these celebrations!" "These?? You mean more than one, Captain?" "Yup, we have another double-up so you know what that means." And a cheer rises from the crowd, "BEERISTAN, HERE WE COME!!! HOME SWEET HOME!!!!!"

As the Martini blimp (once again) catches the favorable trade winds, they make a short stop in London. "Captain, why are we back in London?" "One of our guests is here - hopefully ready and waiting." "No Captain, she's in Belfast." "No, she's in London." "No Captain, Belfast." "No! London! Didn't you get the memo? She's taking in a show with some friends this weekend." "Never mind... Didn't say a word, Captain..." "That's the spirit! So, now let's find our stiletto-wearing, whip-wielding crew member!"

Following a successful search, the Martini Blimp heads for their home base. "Ah, it's good to be back! Is everything ready for the party to begin?" "Yes Captain, we've got everything in place just as you requested. Even the entertainment has arrived and ready to go." Good! Is the island buffet open yet? "Yup, ready and waiting!" "Excellent!"

With that, the crew and guests filled their plates with the specialties of the house and take their seats for tonight's show of shows... "Ladies and Gentleman, please welcome the cast from the London production of The Pirates of Penzance...

Oh, better far to live and die
Under the brave black flag I fly,
Than play a sanctimonious part
With a pirate head and a pirate heart.

Away to the cheating world go you,
Where pirates all are well-to-do,
But I'll be true to the song I sing,
And live and die a Pirate King/Queen!

For, I am a Pirate King/Queen!
And it is, it is a glorious thing to be a Pirate King/Queen!
I am a Pirate King/Queen!
(You are! Hurrah for the Pirate King/Queen!)
And it is, it is a glorious thing to be a Pirate King/Queen!
(It is! Hurrah for the Pirate King/Queen!
Hurrah for the Pirate King/Queen!)

(He is the Pirate King/Queen!
He is! Hurrah for the Pirate King/Queen!
And it is it is a glorious thing to be a Pirate King/Queen!
It is! Hurrah for the Pirate King/Queen!
Hurrah for the Pirate King/Queen!)

When I sally forth to seek my prey
I help myself in a Royal way
I sink a few more ships, it's true
Than a well-bred monarch ought to do.

But many a king on a first class throne,
If he wants to call his crown his own,
Must somehow manage to get through
More dirty work than ever I do.

For, I am a Pirate King/Queen!
And it is, it is a glorious thing to be a Pirate King/Queen!
I am a Pirate King/Queen!
(You are! Hurrah for the Pirate King/Queen!)
And it is, it is a glorious thing to be a Pirate King/Queen!
(It is! Hurrah for the Pirate King/Queen!
Hurrah for the Pirate King/Queen!)

Away! Away!

HAPPY BIRTHDAYS KRIS AND HEATHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I went for "age before beauty" - just in case both of you were wondering. (Though, I have thing for the elder of you two... Just sayin'... Given my "preferences", he wins... No offense, H!)
Here's hoping that you both have a wonderful day (June 7th) filled with friends, family, pressies, booze and more booze!!! (I know what Beerman's day will be filled with - but not goin' there. Okay, food and booze and more food and booze and...)
Hope you enjoyed your weekend in London, H!!!!!!!

And while the crew joins in on the Pirate King/Queen song, Captain Ia has arranged a special guest for Beerman... Hey, we're on Beeristan after all and she is married to him... She can do what she wants...

...Following the rousing performance by the cast and crew, with several repeats because it is a favorite selection of the Beerinstanians, Captain Isa is proud to present our second musical artist of the evening. Please give a round of applause for the man from a Houston, Texas suburb - Hayes Carll!!!!! Take it away, Hayes!!!!

When I'm lyin' in my bed at night, I don't wanna grow up
Nothin' ever seems to turn out right, I don't wanna grow up
How do you move in a world of fog that's always changing things
Makes me wish that I could be a dog

When I see the price that you pay I don't wanna grow up
I don't ever want to be that way I don't wanna grow up
Seems like folks turn into things that they'd never want
The only thing to live for is today

I'm gonna put a hole in my TV set I don't wanna grow up
Yeah gonna open up the medicine chest and I don't wanna grow up
I don't wanna have to shout it out I don't want my hair to fall out
I don't wanna be filled with doubt I don't wanna be a good boy scout
I don't wanna have to learn to count I don't wanna have the biggest amount
I don't wanna grow up

Well when I see my parents fight I don't wanna grow up
They all go out and drinkin' all night and I don't wanna grow up
I'd rather stay here in my room nothin' out there but sad and gloom
I don't wanna live in a big old tomb on Grant Street

When I see the 5 o'clock news I don't wanna grow up
They Comb their hair and shine their shoes I don't wanna grow up
Rather stick around the old hometown I don't wanna put no money down
I don't wanna get me a big old loan work them fingers to the bone
I don't wanna learn to float a broom fall in love and get married then boom
How the hell did it get here so soon
I don't wanna grow up

Happy Birthday, Dear! Hope you enjoyed the concert. (Both the virtual and real one.) ;)
