Pirate Christmas gifts you got

Mission, you necromancer you... raising old threads from the dead...

I did get something piratey... a pair of skull n xbones fleece pants for sleepin' in. Oh! And a really, really nice skull n xbones mug that was made in Germany. It is really light, feels like fine china as opposed to some of the more clunky coffee mugs I have.

The coolest thing I gave? Either the $100 worth of fancy tea from Harney & Sons or the blu-ray copy of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, but of which were presents to the missus.

My Christmas gift from Shay:

This is a medium bone saw (which fills a hole in my collection) that was created by her son Commodore Swab (Chad) using only this page (and information provided by the website site owner) as a reference. The picture really doesn't do it justice. It's beautiful work. (He modified the handle a little so it makes more sense.)

I also got some cautery irons, which will add a new wrinkle to my presentation. ^_^

got a book of pirate cartoons by dan piraro, a government manual for new pirates by brozik and weinstein ( a light hearted book of pirate do's and don'ts ) and a HUGE book by steve brennan " the gigantic book of pirate stories " .... a quick glance showed that many period exerps (sp?) are used, so hopefuly it won't be full of misleading crap :)

I got this 1750 pair of chart reading dividers (which are extremely similar if not the same as a pair found on the Whydah):

And I got this Set of Nesting Troy weights (also similar to a set found on the Whydah and the Queen Annes Revenge):

I got Lost Treasures of the Pirates of the Caribbean by James A. Owen and Jeremy Owen. My niece, nephew, and sister gave it to me, and it appears to be a children's nonfiction book. I'm afraid to read it for fear of a possible lack of accuracy. :lol:
