(Sorry Katie! Didn't mean to leave off the second "er" in the title and I can't fix it!)

...Though it has taken most of the week, the Captain and crew have finally been successful at capturing the Admiral and pushing him back into the broom closet. Boy, is he quick! And he darts! You could get a bead on him if he ran in a straight line but no, he darts! But, all is back to normal aboard ship now. We've had to shanghai one of the birthday quests too. Hey, it wasn't hard, she just lives across The Big Muddy (Mississippi), already had her bags packed and was waiting for us.

Meanwhile, the Captain also sent the Isa Martini Blimp on a mission to collect the second birthday guest. Seems they ran into a bit of a snag - stopping in Peoria, Illinois rather than Perth, Australia. Something about not being able to read the Admiral's handwriting? But, all is back on track and the blimp is now "winging" it's way to Beeristan...

As the pirate ship sails into it's home port, "Captain, are you sure the Martini Blimps isn't still in Peoria?" "I'm pretty sure Matey. The note duct-taped to the carrier pigeon said they'd be arriving shortly." Captain, what do we do with the Katie?" "What we always do in these situations - get her settled in down at the Beach Bar with a pitcher of Mojitos. The Birthday Buffet should be ready by now too." With that, Captain Isa turns just in time to see Katie, plus a few of the crew, gleefully skipping their way to the Beach Bar Buffet. She also watches while the Martini Blimp docks, releases the water slide and Anthony yelling "Yeehaa!!!" as he slides into the surf with a splash. "Captain, I think the blimp arrived." "What gave you that idea?" replied the Captain with a laugh. While the pirates and guests enjoy the Beach Bar Birthday Buffet and copious amounts of Mojitos, the Captain goes to check on the musical entertainment for the evening. Hours pass...

Alright everyone! Time to take your seats for tonight's big show! Feel free to sing long! And, with that, "Please welcome, Hayes Carll and HAARP, who will be sharing the stage for your listening enjoyment!!!!! Applause is heard across the island...

Theres a girl downtown with freckles on her nose
Pencils in her pocket and ketchup on her clothes
Shes a real nice girl, pretty as a plate
The boys call her Katie when they ask her on a date
And who knows Katie?
Maybe you could be the one

Theres a boy outside standin in the rain
His hands are in his pockets hes a
wonderin why he came
Hes a real nice boy, slower than the fall
The girls call him Billy if theyre callin' him at all
And who knows Billy?
Maybe you could be the one

But hearts dont fly And words dont sing
Boys like you cant buy no ring
Loves not stuck It just moves slow
Turn around a minute And away we go

Billy walked inside, ordered up a drink
He started gettin nervous and a wonderin' what shed think
She thought he looked nice, rough around the seams
Just the kind of boy who could listen to her dreams
And who knows Katie? Maybe he could be the one

Well, they stepped outside, and took a little walk
Katie held his hand and Billy even talked
They sat by the pond, they didnt make a sound
The night fell easy as the moon came down
And who knows baby?
Maybe we could be the one

But hearts dont fly And words dont sing
Boys like you cant buy no ring
Loves not stuck It just moves slow
Turn around a minute And away we go

Theres a girl downtown with freckles on her nose
Pencils in her pocket and ketchup on her clothes
Shes a real nice girl, pretty as a plate
The boys call her Katie when they ask her on a date

And who knows Katie?
Maybe you could be the one
Who knows Katie?
Maybe you could be the one
Who knows baby?
Maybe we could be the one

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATIE & ANTHONY!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you both have wonderful birthdays (August 7th) filled with family, friends and cocktails galore!!!!
Anthony - hope you're not in bed yet! Something tells me you'll be celebrating until the wee hours!!!
Katie - sorry we won't be with you tomorrow. Have to be in Mendota for the Sweet Corn Festival. (Really!) Enjoy you spaghetti dinner and night-clubbing!!!! ;)

...As the musicians take turns entertaining the guests, Isa finally heads down to the buffet table to find it empty. The Beach Bartender hands her a pitcher of Mojitos instead...

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
It take it the gold, frankincense and myrrh are in the mail.
Happy birthday Katherine.
All fridays are good, great upmarket restaurant overlooking the Indian Ocean for dinner, the steins of semillon went down a treat and Australia are flogging England on the first day of the 4th Ashes Test.
Life doesn't get much better than this.
I hope you all have a good friday and a great weekend.

Anthony

Many Many Many Happy Days of Birth to you both Antherine and Kathony.......perhaps you can make tell that Beerman has been making much drink and has lost track of all time and place.

Now that Beerman has made up sober, you will be made treat of Happy Dance for your most Happy of Happy Days!!!! YAY!!!!!!

.......and in a brilliant flash of green light and manual dexterity, Beerman makes intercontinental Dance of Happy from Iowa City to Perth, pirouetting slightly in Honolulu with native fire dancers and picking up more adult beverages for Happy Twosome of Joint Birth and narrowly avoiding dancing whales on migration. Is good, yes no?

Cheers to you both.
