...While the pirates have spend the last few days in the pub belting out old show tunes, watching the Super Bowl and generally wreaking havoc across Great Britain, Captain Isa heads off to the next destination. She's just too tired to round up the troops once again. They all have directions, maps, compasses and GPS. They are on their own...
"Hey! Anyone seen the Captain lately?" "No. She was sitting over in the corner of the pub last time I looked but that was Friday. Why? Is she missing?" "Well, yeah - she's missing! Aren't we suppose to be somewhere soon? Who's going to give us directions? How could she wander off like this?" "Maybe she was kidnapped or went back to the ship for a snooze." "Kidnapped?? You're saying the Captain was kidnapped?" "No. Just throwing up ideas." With that, the crew returns to ship and scurries around looking for clues...
"Hey, I just found a note stuck to the Captain's quarters." "Yes? And what does that note say?" "Oh, you want me to read it?" "Well, it might be helpful if you did. Just a thought." "Oh, okay, it says: Dear Crew, I'm off to the next destination to wish the birthday boy a very happy birthday. If you wish to join me, you'll find the directions taped to the wheel. You all have maps, compasses and GPS. Good luck finding me. Errmmm, I mean us."
Immediately the crew hunts down the directions, try to find their maps and compasses, and figure out what the Captain means by GPS. Good Pirate Ship? Gold Price Standard? Got Porridge Stew? Hours pass, but someone finally deciphers the secret GPS code after finding their GPS handheld. "Eureka! We've found the missing link! We're headed to Utrecht to see Utrecht!!!" (More hours pass...)
It has taken the pirates awhile to get things done on their own but they have made it to the flashing red dot on the GPS screen display. As they enter the Government Building of Traffic Light Control in search of the intended victim, they can't resist the urge to... (Yup, here we go again.)
Come down on your own
And leave your body alone
Somebody must change
You are the reason
I've been waiting all these years
Somebody holds the key
Well, I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time
Well, I'm wasted and I can't find my way home
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MICHAEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you have a wonderful day (Feb. 10th) filled with family, friends, darts, wine, more darts, more wine, and lots of pressies (and kisses) from Eva!!!!! May all the stray cats in the neighborhood serenade you too! (I have a few who will be happy to join in.) Meow!
...While the crew try dodging the darts Michael is throwing at them (it is another tournament night - or just throw darts randomly at pirates night), Captain Isa tries to figure out this GPS thing for Iceland...
