  3. Looks like I'm gonna be the only pirate in camp this year at The BucCornEar Festival. Any one wanna come join me? It's a great camping spot and festival!

      If I had the money to travel there, I'd support the camp in a heartbeat. Take pictures and be vigilant.

  4. Had a great time with the Mercury at STL Ren Faire.

  5. Took possession of Deborah's Pantry at the beginning of the year 2013. Trading as Dobyns and Martin, Grocers, at the Sign of the Sugar Loaf.

      Excellent! Great wares!

  6. I am thinking of repositioning Ivan Henry Trading Company. I would like to see if there is any interest in a store that carries, short run, unique to market flintlock and matchlock replicas that are 50% or more pre-ordered. For instance, I develop a 16th Century Arquebus or Caliver, take pre orders, manufacture 10-20, sell those and then move on to the next unique piece, like, oh, say a wheel lock musket... Any interest in this sort of business?

      A functional wheellock pistol would be wonderful.

  7. Last night I noticed a store clerk taking his smoking break in front of the propane storage bin. The bin had a giant sign that said " no smoking".

      I had a roommate that would fish toast out of the toaster with a fork while it was plugged in. He did something like that almost every day.

  8. tis a grand day! got a phone call to swing by a movie set and scrounge. . . . . grand day to be a pirate!

  9. sailed the Susan Contant (armed merchentman- 8 falcons, 4 swivals) from jamestown to portsmouth, Va. today, the helm is a whip staff it was very educational to helm a ship using that method of steering.

      I am more jealous then I can say. Wait. No I can say. I'm very jealous, not only that you stood helmsman on a ship, but because it was the Susan Constant. My family comes through Jamestown and I haven't been back that way in years, and I haven't been aboard the S.C.

  10. It was great to meet a few members at St. Louis Pirate Festival.

      What Mister Smythe means to say is that you weren't at your tent when he found everyone but you. What was everyone doing in your tent without you being there? Rummaging? Plotting?

  11. Ugh! feeling guilty for buying one of Matt's swords instead of working on my impression

      Buying one of Matt's swords is part and parcel to improving your impression.

  12. I think I'd like to weather the next hurricane on a ship...

  13. Humph..my old avatar doesn't fit this new box...rats. Even with the cropping availablilty, it won't fit without whacking the bottom or top off. **sigh** Back to the drawing board.

  14. grant application going out for educational materials. keeping our fingers crossed

  15. Off to the bay of Saint Francis tomorrow for NorCal! See y'all there, mates!

    1. William Brand

      William Brand

      Jeeeeealous. We need to set up a skype to NorCal.

  16. has 15 days of work left until 60+ off.

    1. William Brand

      William Brand

      One of those rare times where math fails, for each day you subtract from the 15 will make the remaining days become longer. until the last day will be some 40+ hours long. then the first day of freedom will seem full and free of clocks, but the last few days of the 60 will be reduced to mere minutes.

  17. 4 hours, an' 15 minutes left in 13.5 hour shift... Some one mix me up a grog... please...

    1. William Brand

      William Brand

      We'll set out a glass and two casks at the Kate.

  21. I miss this place..still no internet or landline..feeling a little marooned at the moment.

  22. The wife has become enamored with the idea of moving. I get to bang out a mega list to get the house ready to sel. Am I wrong in saying I want woods or water behind the new place so I have a playground?

    1. William Brand

      William Brand

      Wrong? We want that too. Get a place with enough acreage that we don't bother people with the cannon.
