Some Plunder For Ye To Ponder

Ahoy ye poppets!

Ole Cap’n One Leg Sterling here!

This was a right good season of piratin’ and I’ve spied a passel of baubles ye might want to plunder fer yer crew. So pay attention or it’s the cat fer ye!

I don’t know how he does it. That’s right it be Jack Sparrow I’m speakin’ of. Tarnation if he ain’t had a life not a third as interestin’ as me. But somehow he gets a movie made of his questionable exploits and next thing you know he’s all over the silver screen. Worst pirate I ever heard of. Still, I got to give the devil his due. He manages to tell a right entertainin’ tale and gives it to them Brit weasels time and again. And what’s more, he’s got a new lie comin’ to theaters in May. I don’t know how that brigand finds the time. If you ain’t seen it yet, or if you ain’t got the whole kit and kaboodle of movies in one boxed set, here is a link for ye for all three at a fair price.

Now, when I ain’t out thievin’ and scouring the Main for plunder and keepin’ an eye out fer Blackbeard, I like chillaxin in my cabin with a good yarn. A page turner if you know what I mean. In fact there ain’t nothing the Cap’n fancies better than a well told tale of adventure on the high seas. You’d think I’d want less ships and more wenches or a nice girly romance story. Now mind you, I like a nice rom com as much as the next bloodthirsty killin, thievin’, buccaneer. But when I read about the great ocean explorers, I get a tingle down my spine. And right now, on my readin’ table, lies Morning Of Fire: John Kendrick’s Daring American Odyssey In The Pacific. I knew ole Kendrick, knew him well. I ain’t exactly sure I’d call him a pirate, but a brigand fer sure. And if you long for the days where the sea spray splashed in yer face and yer three masted schooner leapt across the waves like an antelope across the prairie this is the book fer you.

And it may come as a surprise to you landlubbers but the Cap’n has a real soft spot in his heart for the wee little Pirates. And if’n you have a young matey who fancies himself an eye patch and a parrot, then there is another book you won’t want to miss. It’s called Pirates (duh) and it features poems by poet David Harrison and paintin’s by Don Burr. Both of ’em men of questionable character and fair warnin’ if ye come across ’em don’t turn yer back on either as they’ll pinch yer poke fer sure. But this here book is worth every dubloon and one even a grown-up will find amusin’ (especially after a few spots a grog! Arrgh!) Click here to order yer copy! And remember, no plunderin!

That’s it fer now matey’s the Cap’n’ll return again soon with more suggestions for baubles that’ll calm yer pirate cravin’s.

Ahoy! Raise the mizzen’, hoist the thing and that other thing!
