Why was I not Born a Pirate?

Sunday, April 9

Last night over wine, my Mom's peach pie and port my brother and I lamented once again upon fact that we were not pirates. Maybe it's a family thing because my Dad then told us about a pirate show that was his favorite when he was a kid. There is something about pirates (and super hero's) that make everyone want to be them. When I was a kid I wanted to be a fireman, not a pirate, but for some reason lately I've been thinking the pirates life is for me. Not so much the rape and plunder but the parties and treasure and maybe a parrot. I'm drawing up a business plan for a joint venture with my brother and a friend of mine who also wants to be a pirate. We'll buy a sugar cane plantation in Jamaica, make rum and try to break into the pirating business.

Let me know if you want to join us or have a pirate ship we could "borrow".

listen...i'll come be a part of this, but i don't want a peg leg or a beard. and we need to plunder some soap as well. and some veggies so we don't get scurvey. and could it basically just be a yacht? and no storms. and let's just have a lot of money to begin with so we don't have to hurt anyone!!

Sounds like the cast of Pirates of the Carribean.

Hey Nick, I'll be back in Grand Forks probably on May 1st or 2nd (depends on the hockey schedule). I will then be in Kelowna on May 9th and 10th before I fly to Ontario. Are you gonna be around?
