...After the hectic travel schedule of May, June gave the captain and crew a bit of well-received relaxation time. With the ship restocked, the rum barrels refilled and the crew rested, they have made the sail from Beeristan at their leisure. As the ship nears Trenton... "Captain, isn't that New Jersey?" "Yes." Why are we in New Jersey, aren't we suppose to be in Pennsylvania?" "Yes." We don't have to take a bus to get there do we?" "No." Set a heading for the Delaware River. It'll be faster than the Greyhound." "Aye,aye, Captain! We hate taking the bus!" With that, the ship sails along the Delaware...

"Captain, there's a rum barrel on deck. Shouldn't that be down in the hold with the rest?" "No Matey, that barrel is going with us." "Why? Do we have to make offerings to the Forefathers to dock at Philadelphia? Tickets to Independence Hall and the US Mint are free - says so on their websites. Are we trading rum for commemorative coins?" "No, that particular barrel is a gift to the birthday girl." "We're giving her a full barrel of rum??? NO!" "No is the correct answer - we're giving her something even better - a barrel of Philly Cheese Steak Soup and that 500 count bag of buns over there!" "Soup? Why soup? Who'd want a barrel of soup?" "Well, the BD girl's username is SOUPtrvlr so it makes perfect sense to me! Oh, and no tours until we've delivered that soup! " "Oh, okay Captain..."

And, shortly after, the ship make dock along the bank of the river. The Captain, crew, barrel of Philly Cheese Steak soup and bag of buns head out to find Holly. In typical fashion, voices are raised in an appropriate song...

Be kind to your web-footed friends
For a duck may be somebody's mother,
Be kind to your friends in the swamp
Where the weather is always damp.

You may think that this is the end,
Well it is, but to prove we're all liars,
We're going to sing it again,
Only this time we'll sing a little higher.

Be kind to your web-footed friends
For a duck may be somebody's mother,
Be kind to your friends in the swamp
Where the weather is always damp.

You may think that this is the end....
Well you're right!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HOLLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you have a wonderful day (July 6th) and that you have recovered from all of the Independence Day Celebrations!!! May you enjoy the Philly Cheese Steak soup with the complimentary buns for dipping, lots of cocktails, time with family and friends, and that Graham gives you something really cool to take sailing with you in BVI!!!!

...Last seen the Captain and crew were still rolling the barrel and dragging the bag of buns down the cobblestone street of Philadelphia. It seems a few couldn't wait and have sneaked off to visit the Mint in hopes of scoring some really cool coins. Hey, they're pirates after all - plundering is part of their nature...

Pssst... It's a secret but Beerman came up with the Philly Cheesesteak soup. It does sound good though... Must work on a recipe...

Happy to hear you had a great birthday and Graham came through with cheesy novels too. Always a good choice for trips.
