Everybody's thinkin' it..I'm just sayin' it ..PIRATES!


I had fun checking out pirates on Google!
I found many photos of a Buccuneer's Ball
that is apparently held annually.

These people are having serious pirate fun.

Let's get out our pirate colors, and do some coloring!

My friend Kathy York has a wonderful rubber stamp company

She fell in love with Pirates when the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie came out, I think. She has the best selection of Pirate rubber stamps I have seen anywhere.

Here are some cards from the RubberStampAve gallery site:

All of these are made from Kathy's Pirate stamp line.

If you order from her, please let her know that
sent you!!!

Here is a 5 - Pirate maze for you:

and here is a simple find-a-word puzzle
for someone perhaps a bit younger:



One of my favorite movies is

CutThroat Island 

Geena Davis, Matthew Modine and Frank Langella star.
Great actors!

Let's not forget Captain Blood,
with Errol Flynn & Olivia De Haviland-

And of course, the tongue-in-cheek movie,
Ice Pirates

Ready to learn how to draw some 'pirate-ish' things?

I think these Dover How-to Draw books
are very clever.
They are a great way
to introduce a child to drawing.

and of course my absolute favorite pirate -

Peter, WaltDisneyWorld 2009

and yes....
 He purchased his hat the first day...
and wore it everyday!
He got lots of comments and smiles!

With that, I will close for today.
Who knows what I'll blog about tomorrow!!
