A Pirate's Tale


A friend told me her little girl likes pirate books and I can't sleep. Give my addled mind a set of idle hands and anything might appear. In this case, it's a pirate story, but not just any story. This is the toddler version of my life as a pirate.

Once upon a time a man left home to make his fortune in the world. He built great and wonderful things, but they tended to lean



and sometimes fall down. One day he built a house and it fell on him.


Ouch!

So then,


he tried to fly a desk



in an office,



but he couldn't work from 9 to 5.



Finally, he went to sea and became a pirate and he was happy but his head hurt in the morning a lot.



He sailed the stormy seas for many years in his pirate ship,



staying one step ahead of the royal navy and



collecting much booty;)


Finally, he met the most beautiful girl in all the world and they were married.



She became his pirate queen.


Soon, they had a baby girl and



she became a pirate princess.



And they gave her a pet. Black Beard, the pirate dog.

You know, you should write children's books. You could give that bastard Dr. Suess a run for his money.

Great story. So sweet.

Of course, black beard the pirate dog looks like he'd like to be left alone.

Pirate dog does not get too enthused about anything except moving vehicles and food...

Travis, pirate dog got into the garbage 3 times today. Last time I was home, he crapped on the floor. I woke up and stepped in it. He is not the most desirable mutt in the world, lately. He also has really, really bad gas.

As mr bud notes, he may also have found my wine stash, in which case he will BBQ'd for lunch tomorrow...

....there is no way to have this not sound sexual.
