...With the ship refurbishing project not quite yet completed - more shells are needed for the Captain's quarters - Beeristan will have to be the location for this next round of celebrations. Okay, two celebrations on the same day. But, twice the fun! Even the big sandcastles with the turrets and gun emplacements and pirate flags have weathered the weather well. Maybe that's because the weather is always beautiful on Beeristan and the castles built with cement. Good thinking, crew! ;)

"Captain, when are the guests to arrive? Do we have time for one more sandcastle?" "No matey, I'm afraid not. The guests should be here in a few hours. There are preparations to be made before more castles. The beach bar is a disaster, the stage is littered with coconuts, the food.. Well, don't get me started. Where the hell is the ship's cook anyway?" "I think the cook is out snorkeling for conch. Something about chowder." "Ah, good then. We might be ready in time after all."

And with that, the Captain and crew prepare for the party. The time flies by and before anyone notices, the Martini Blimp comes in for a landing. "Captain! The birthday people are here!" "Excellent mates! Is everything ready?" "Aye Captain, we're all set. Even the band has set up already." "Excellent again! Fine job all!" As always, the birthday people are escorted to the Beach Bar for cocktails and appetizers, followed by a tastefully done dinner buffet. While the partiers partake, the band does their sound checks. With everyone stuffed to the gills, they all take their seats for the music portion of this thread.

"Good evening, ladies and gents! It is my pleasure to introduce the musical entertainment for tonight's birthday bash. So, with no further ado, please welcome... The cast of Muppet Treasure Island!!! YEAH!!!"

When the course is laid and the anchor's weighed
A sailor's blood begins racing
With our hearts unbound and our flag unfurled
We're under way and off to see the world
Under way and off to see the world

Hey ho we'll go
Anywhere the wind is blowing
Manly men are we
Sailing for adventure on the deep blue sea

Danger walks the deck we say what the heck
We laugh at the perils we're facing
Every storm we ride is it's own reward
And people die by falling overboard
People die by falling overboard

Hey ho we'll go
Anywhere the wind is blowing
Hoist the sails and sing
Sailing for adventure on the big blue wet thing

I love to see 'em cry when they walk the plank
I prefer to cut a throat
I love to hang 'em high and watch their little
feet try to walk in the air while their faces turn blue
Just kidding! It's a good life on a boat

There are distant lands with burning sands
That call across the oceans
There are bingo games every fun-filled day
And Margaritas at the midnight buffet
Margaritas at the midnight buffet

Hey ho we'll go
Anywhere the wind is blowing
Should have took a train
Sailing for adventure on the bounding main

The salty breezes whisper
Who knows what lies ahead
I just know I was born to lead the life my father led

The stars will be our compass
Wherever we may roam
And our mates will always be
Just like a family
And though we may put into port the sea is always home

We'll chase our dreams standing on our own
Over the horizon to the great unknown

Hey ho we'll go
Anywhere the wind is blowing
Bold and brave and free
Sailing for adventure

It's so nauseating
Sailing for adventure
So exhilarating
Sailing for adventure
We're all celebrating
On the deep blue sea


Here's hoping you both have wonderful birthdays (August 7th) filled with family, friends, cocktails (of course - hey Margaritas at the midnight buffet) and just enjoy it all!!!!!!!!!!

While the Muppets continue to serenade the audience, Captain Isa sits back to admire all the new shells piled in front of her that will be adorning her cabin soon...

(ps: Isa knows she's used this song before. It's a classic and she likes it. A lot.)

Hey Anthony, hope you have a wonderful day!!!!

Thanks Isa, Hien, Michael, and Rebecca Though Isa, I think you forgot one thing... it begins with "jame" and ends with "son", though I supposed I could suffice with just margaritas ;)

Thank you Peter, Kris, Sam, and Nikki! I had a fantastic weekend that included lots of Jameson, craziness, dancing, and ended with a fabulous cook out at my place... though we all stayed indoors considering the craptastic weather :p However the yard did look wonderful, so there Kris! Guess you should have just came here and joined in on the 12 person game of Apples to Apples And exactly how tall is this lawn you speak of mowing? You do know I'm a speed mower, right? Anything that requires going slow is just not gonna happen But I will take you up on the drinks regardless.. and maybe a game or two of Scrabble - hah! ;)
