...Now that Captain Isa is thoroughly trashed, after hiding in the rum hold for 2 days, she decides the services of the Martini Blimp are required once again. Captain Isa also has a feeling that the next birthday wishes recipient hasn't had more than a glass of wine here and there in several months. Besides, the blimp's Musak machine is on the fritz and there is no one better to fix it. Hey, she has experience after being in charge of the machine in the TP Martini Lounge over the years.

"Alright Mateys! Let's get this show on the road! It appears that volcanic ash cloud has moved away so we should have clear skies (sort of) for our trip. All aboard!" "Ah, Captain, are you sure about that cloud thing? The GPS says we'll run into trouble..." "The GPS says??? Are you kidding??? Where did we get GPS?? We're PIRATES!!" "Amazon.com, Captain. It was on sale." "Have you read the instructions, Matey?" "No Captain. It was on sale so no manual." "Okay... Well, let's hope we get there in time then..." With that the Martini Blimp, via GPS, sets a course to (now) places unidentified...

"Captain! I think we've arrived!" "Are we in Montreal?" "Montreal??? No. We're in Greenland." "Greenland? What the hell are we doing in Greenland? Get out the charts! We need to be in Montreal!" "Aye aye, Captain. Montreal it is..."

After several more hours spent trying to find the charts from 1786, the Martini Blimp finally sets down on top of the visitor's center at Monte Royale. As usual, the Captain and crew disembark but can't quite navigate getting down from the roof. Instead, they settle for tapping another barrel of rum and just doing what they always do...

I’ve been looking for you all of my life,
But I never ever knew it ‘til I saw you last night.
I can barely tell you how it made me feel.
When the world stopped moving and my heart stood still.

Take me away.

Come on, pretty baby, take me for a ride.
You don’t have to say it I can see it in your eyes.
Standing on the corner of Hiway 93,
Here comes the king of Zydeco in a black limousine.

Come on, pretty baby, come on take me away.
Make love with me baby each and every day.

This place means nothing to me,
Waiting for the end to come.
But when I saw you there,
I knew, I knew that you had to be the one
To make my life worth living,
Come on and take me away.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TWEENA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's hoping you have a wonderful birthday (May 15th) filled with family, friends, lots of food (have to keep up your strength with Sarah) and MARTINIS!!!!!!!! Make Rip babysit while you enjoy the day!!!!! ;)

...Now that the crew is also trashed from tapping that latest barrel, everyone just keeps singing. And singing. And singing. And some of it in French. Bad French but French all the same...

.................and in a brilliantly blinding flash of red and white light, wearing only a rather small maple leaf colored speedo and luxuriantly massive chestwig, comes Beerman, accompanied by a professionally-trained Beeristani babysitter.........

Hallllllooooooooooo, Mrs. Chestwina person you, it is I, Beerman, here to make Happy at you on this, your Most Happy of Happy Days!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is also St. Vartan's Day, Patron Saint of Beeristani Romantic Dinners for new mothers. So occasion is most perfect.

I see you are already making eyes at new speedo, appropriately made colored like Canuckistani flag. Is making you crazy wild with passion for Mr. Chestwina, I can see this. You are in luck today, because not only has Beerman brought extra appropriately made colored like Canuckistani flag speedo for the Mr. person, but also this professionally trained Beeristani babysitter to make care for baby Chestwina while you and Mr. person may take time to have whoopie session and nice quiet dinner. And here is dinner, complete with all necessary Beeristani delicacies and tablewares. Under dome #1, you are having beer. Under dome #2, you are having appetizer consisting of special beer. Dome #3 has very special entree of beer, while dome #4 has wonderful dessert beer. You wish to make dine prior to having session of whoopie?

Hellooo? Mrs. Chestwina person? Mr. Person? Where have you made gone to? The special dinner is getting waaaaarm. Helllooooo? OK, fine, Beerman is seeing whoopie session is more important than fine Beeristani dinner of romance. Fine. Professionally trained Beeristani babysitter and Beerman will take baby Chestwina to casino for evening of flashing lights and bell sounds.....is very soothing for Beeristani babies, so it should make work here.
