...Having narrowly avoided being trapped in the Daams Dungeon of the Doomed Donvale Division (for singing the wrong song), the Captain and crew make a hasty retreat back to the ship. Slowly they sail out of Port Phillip and make for the open sea. Thankfully, the journey will be a short one which delights the crew to no end.

"Captain, isn't it monsoon season where we're heading? Maybe we should break out the rain gear just in case." "Break out the rain gear? What - everyone afraid of a little afternoon shower?" No, we won't be needing the rain gear. Besides, you could all do with a bit of washing off since we have a leaky tub." But Captain, the weather channel said there would be major downpours. That's more than a little shower." "And where did you see the weather channel? We don't have a TV on this ship." "Caught a glimpse of it during our escape from the Dungeon of the Doomed Donvale Division. I think we'll need our slickers and galoshes." "No, we won't. The sun will be shining brightly. Now get back to work. We'll be in port soon."

And with that, the crew man the sails and make a heading for the Kelani River... "Captain, the sky is getting rather dark overhead. We think it's going to rain." "Nonsense! Give a couple of minutes and the sun will be out. Just bring us along side the pier and tie us off." "Captain, drops of water are landing on our heads. It's raining." "That's not rain - it's liquid sunshine. Stop complaining and let's find the birthday girl."

As the crew disembarks, a torrential downpour begins. They dutifully start to sing a birthday song but pouring rain almost makes it inaudible...

If the rain comes they run and hide their heads.
They might as well be dead.
If the rain comes, if the rain comes.
When the sun shines they slip into the shade
(When the sun shines down.)
And sip their lemonade.
(When the sun shines down.)
When the sun shines, when the sun shines.
Rain, I don't mind.
Shine, the world looks fine.
I can show you that when it starts to rain,
(When the Rain comes down.)
Everything's the same.
(When the Rain comes down.)
I can show you, I can show you.
Rain, I don't mind.
Shine, the world looks fine.
Can you hear me, that when it rains and shines,
(When it Rains and shines.)
It's just a state of mind?
(When it rains and shines.)
Can you hear me, can you hear me?
If the rain comes they run and hide their heads.
If the rain comes they run and hide their heads.

Here's hoping you have a wonderful day (October 19th) filled with sunshine, a day off, lots of food, family and friends to help you celebrate and big pitchers of martinis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...As the rain continues to pelt down on the crew, Captain Isa checks in to the nearest hotel with a bar and dry bath towels...
