Okay - Isa missed 2007 because she was out of town and thought Hien would post. She missed 2008 because she, Beerman, Wonkerer and friends were doing a TP Birthday Meet-up in Chicago... I can't be everywhere all of the time. But, James - you are in luck!!! I'm home this time!!!!! No late BD thread!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!

...Having spent a the past 48 hours on Beeristan, celebrating two birthdays and restocking the ship, the crew has now left port and making the quick trip to it's next destination. Being located in the "Middle-Of-Nowhere" Ocean, it's a quick trip - what's wrong with that? Last year the ship was ravaged by storms and locusts and plagues and all sorts of other dastardly things. Not to mention the barrage of golf balls that left big huge divots in the deck as they bounced overboard or hit certain crew members right between the eyes. We get a break once in awhile. Really.

Not taking any chances, the ship slowly and stealthily sails into pier at the Hurstville Golf Course, under the cloak of darkness this time... "Fore!!!!!!!!!" Thwack. "Captain! What was that? Are we under attack?" Thwack. Thwack. Thwack. "Captain! We ARE under attack! Battle stations, everyone!" "No Matey, we're not under attack. Someone's out there night putting again. I knew this pier was a bad idea." "Captain, I thought "night putting meant..." "It does to some people, Matey - just not to James. Well, I think he's got two definitions for it since he's going to be a father again too. Damn! Everyone take cover for a few minutes. He's going to run out of (golf) balls sooner or later!" And, with that, thwack, thwack, thwack, thwack, thwack.....

After several hours of waiting out another barrage of golf balls, the crew is finally able to disembark... "Captain, are you sure this guy likes us? He keeps trying to kill us with golf balls." "Nah, he likes us. It's just his way of welcoming us to Australia. They have some strange customs down under, that's all." "Okay Captain, if you say soo. Do we get to sing now?" Yup - just stay close to the ground just in case..." And while the crew snakes along the 15th green on their way to James' house, they begin the you know what...

There's an old Australian stockman, lying, dying
And he gets himself up onto one elbow, turns to his mates
Who are gathered 'round and he says

Watch me wallaby's feed, mate, watch me wallaby's feed
'Ey! they're a dangerous breed, mate, so watch me wallaby's feed

All together now - tie me kangaroo down, sport, tie me kangaroo down
Tie me kangaroo down, sport, tie me kangaroo down

And keep me cockatoo cool, Curl, keep me cockatoo cool
Ah, don't go actin' the fool, Curl, just keep me cockatoo cool

All together now - tie me kangaroo down, sport, tie me kangaroo down
Tie me kangaroo down, sport, tie me kangaroo down

And take me koala back, Jack, take me koala back
He lives somewhere out on the track, Mac, so take me koala back

All together now - tie me kangaroo down, sport, tie me kangaroo down
Tie me kangaroo down, sport, tie me kangaroo down

And mind me platypus duck, Bill, mind me platypus duck
Ah, don't let him go runnin' amuck, Bill, just mind me platypus duck

All together now - tie me kangaroo down, sport, tie me kangaroo down
Tie me kangaroo down, sport, tie me kangaroo down

And play your didgeridoo, Blue, play your didgeridoo
Uh, like, keep playin' till I shoot through, Blue, play your didgeridoo

All together now - tie me kangaroo down, sport, tie me kangaroo down
Tie me kangaroo down, sport, tie me kangaroo down

And tan me hide when I'm dead, Fred, [hm-hm-hm] tan me hide when I'm dead
So we tanned his hide when he died, Clyde and that's it hanging on the shed

All together now - tie me kangaroo down, sport, tie me kangaroo down
Tie me kangaroo down, sport, tie me kangaroo down

All together now - tie that golfer named James down, tie that golfer named James
Tie that golfer named James down, and throw him into the Thames

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you have a wonderful day (June 9th) filled with family, friends, beer, beer, beer, beer, beer, beer... You get my point.

...With that, Captain Isa confiscates all the golf balls while the crew unloads their cargo of only the finest Beerinstani beer for James to enjoy. One more golf ball hitting the deck of the ship or a crew member right between the eyes and she's taking the whole cargo back... Just a warning. She might even take James whole collection of Debbie Does Dallas action figures with moveable parts... (Be afraid, James - be very afraid.)
