    1. Ye be welcome. Now get ye to scrubbin’ the decks o’ the good ship St Mallory’s or I be a-chasin’ ye ’til midnight! The first mate be wantin’ chapters! (I be tellin’ him to wait, but he listens not to his cap’n)

      1. Arr, I be doin’ me best, but tis rough seas o’er the AS Cape, an’ I be strugglin’ hard t’ stay astern o’ them! Though ye have me oath as a pirate ye’ll get ye chapters, ye scurvy dog!

        1. It be not wise to call yer Captain a scurvy dog, ye insolent cabin boy, and I be not pleased. Ye get the chapters to me cabin by nightfall, or I’ll be hangin’ ye up by yer pretty locks from the mast yonder.

  1. What do ye do with a drunken aailor

    BTW our official cover designer wants gazillions for a live photo model option for the SMF cover, so gonna be down to you two!

        1. I used to have a kilt. It was red, and it had a big safety pin. Before that I had a different one, which didn’t, but had a belt. (I think). I don’t really remember this. We’re going back a really long time, I’m not sure I’d even started school, or if I had I wasn’t older than seven.

      1. Speaking of which – I”m guessing St. Mall’s has a kilt for their dress code eh? Which also reminds me, I might be talking about St. mall’s in my next blog post. It was on my mind this morning apaprently in my waking/sleeping state. *grin*
