...Following a night of practicing their reels, jigs and strathspeys, and having to defend their rum from the wily hedgehogs and other tiny woodland creatures (who all seem to have a fondness for the golden elixer of pirate life), the crew finds their way back to the unknown harbor on the west shores of England and their ship. The ship slowly sails towards it's next destination... Alright you sad lot of misfits, time to dig out your kilts from that barrel of mothballs! I know they smell funny. No, you don't have time to have them drycleaned. Yes, I know wool is itchy and chafes those sensitive areas. Yes, you can wear underwear and everyone would appreciate the gesture. No, you don't have to but we're completely out of ointment if you get a rash...

Finally dressed in their finery and slowly approaching Glasgow, voices are raised...

There was a lass and a bonnie lass,
A-gathering nits did gang,
And she pu'd them heich, and she pu'd them laich,
And she pu'd them whaur they hang.

The crew does a jig down the gangway to the dock and heads to the closest pub... Are you ever going to sing the birthday song again? And what's this about hanging nuts? I knew it! James and Jase were in charge of the song selections weren't they! Whre are those two scondrels???? Off to find floozies...

Here's hoping you have a wonderful birthday (May 24th) filled with all your favorite things!!! May all your wishes come true and you get lots of pressies!!!

...Isa heads to the nearest pub to join the reels and jigs and singing of very strange Scottish folksongs with the rest of the crew. She's given up trying to keep them in line after fending off hundreds of hedgehogs the night before... Who's got the rum? Pass a tankard down this way!!!

Happy birthday, oh elusive Mikeyboab!

Hey, wait a minute--weren't you getting married in May??? Or was that June? Dang--I can't remember. Well: pre- or post-congratulations, too!

And post pics! The one of you and your girl dressed in orange is getting a little old.
