Aaarrrrr me hearties, it be Pirate Day, aye so it be!  Once a year, Blogville dons its tricorn hat, a bandana or 87, buckles on its swash and rolls its Rs at least provocation.

This year's hosts are Louis-dog and Bear Cat.

This 'ere sailor loves a mighty ship and all things ocean. Of late, there is even a parrot to keep me company on the midnight watch... arrrrrrrrrrrrr, Merrrrrlin be 'is name. 'E watches over all the ships in 'Alifax, Novy Scoashy, aye 'e does and many a squawk 'e does, make if'n folks don't stop and pass the time o' day wi' 'im. A worthy shipmate 'e be. This be 'im below, d'ya see?

"SSQQUUUAAAWWWKKKK.... cooee me 'earties, how'd yer beak be? Keeping everything ship-shape and sharpish are ye?

Now then avast ye all, listen up and lend me yer beaks ears; for the duration of this day all and sundry and with a feather or two, youse are expected to at least wear an eye patch and roll an R or 87. If'n you can squawk all parroty also, so much the better it will go fer ye. We'll not be mentioning the plank or the gibbet. They's being kept for the blaggards who naysay the day, who have no fun in their beaks beards hearts. If you don't know about the pirates' pets, then you had best read this - read it, I squawks at ye!!!"

You be sure to have a grand ol' day, me scurvies and may it set the tone o' the week fer ye. We'll be sailing off now, have a care with yer compass that it not be tinkered and may the weather be fair................................................................. up anchor lads!!!
