Booty: Time to Get Back to Da Bayou

It's that time again. Time for all the seadogs and wenches to head down to New Orleans, LA and commune with our own. That's right; NOLA Pyrate Week is coming.

Thanks to my dear friends Captain John Swallow and Quartermaster Seika Hellbound, this event happens annually in NOLA and beyond. They work hard all year to put this wonderful even together and this year it's bigger and better than ever. Be sure to click over to the Pyrate Week website for more details on all the wonderful events and history awaiting you in southeastern Louisiana.

My only regret here is my inability to attend due to the sudden collapse of income aboard us; both the First Mate and I are looking for gainful employment with health benefits.

But that's temporary and we'll get down to Pyrate Week sooner than later. If you can at all, Brethren, be sure to head to NOLA for this one of a kind event March 29th through April 7th. Give the Captain and QM my very best regards, and thank them for all they do to keep pirate and Louisiana history alive and well.

On a final note, a heart felt Happy Birthday to the United States' first President, George Washington. As he once said:

Without a decisive naval force we can do nothing definitive, and with it, everything honorable and glorious.

And that is a visionary for you; always thinking ahead of his time.

Many thanks for the post mate! We are deeply saddened that ye may not be joining us this year (ye never know...treasure could fall into yer lap)...that may take a lot o' Rum to drown our disappointment. We will certainly send Bayou Blessings yer direction!

Thankee, Captain. It makes me a little sick to my stomach to think that what we had put by for the trip will now go to keep us in health benefits until we find employment. But all that said, treasure could fall into our laps and never count a pirate out while she lives! I hope you all aren't working too hard, and can really enjoy the generous fruits of your labors.

Happy Friday to all the brethren and happy birthday to GW!

We will make it down to Pyrate Week sooner or later, Pauline

Yep; better later than never one has to imagine.
