288 Days Until International Talk Like a Pirate Day
In This Issue:
Ahoy and Happy Holidays to Ye
Roll that one around yer mouth a couple of times – Gallows Bay.
Is that a great piratey name, or what? It's an area on the north end of the island where I live, St. Croix.
And that's where I'll be tonight at Undercover Books, taking part in the Gallows Bay Holiday Festival. From 6 to 9 p.m. all of the shops and restaurants will be open and the streets will be alive with entertainment – North Pole - with cutlasses!
Okay, maybe Christmas and New Years aren't quite as much fun as yer favorite holiday – Talk Like a Pirate Day - but it's a grand time of year and the perfect opportunity to shower yourself and loved ones with piratey goodness.
Our Cafe Press shop has shirts, buttons and other assorted knickknacks of a piratey nature. Our link to Lulu.com will allow you to purchase our ongoing "Caper" series – four books (and more to come) that follow the adventures of the crew of The Festering Boil as they sale the Seven Seas in search of booty. There's also "A Li'l Pirate's ABSeas," the rhymey picture book for the wee ones. And of course the Amazon link will let you buy our latest book – "The Pirate Life: Unleashing Your Inner Buccaneer." This is the book that will help you turn your dull, routine life into an adventure. It'll make a great gift for all your friends, if you have any.
So make this a piratey Christmas for you and everyone you know. And from me, Mad sally, Cap'n Slappy and the Web Wench, best wishes for the season.!
Ye've recently received the latest Poopdeck. For some reason lately my e-mail program has taken to truncating my missives, cutting out the guts of 'em like a pirate cutting up a naval officer. The whole middle of Issue 60 got left out. That's why the the Index doesn't resemble the message. Here it is in a nutshell:
