So...I'm going for the fathead cob...fitting. And I think maybe I'll visit the forever stem store and customize it with a longish bing style stem in a rakish pirate hue...eh, Mr. Smee? That'll be right festive, wot?

Turn into one like this...





But then...there are lots o'choices!

I used to see these guys at local bars back in the day--never knew Boatswain Fatman made it as far south as Spanish waters! I present The Alaskan Pirate and His Salty Seamen. Site's is safe for work, basic old school music page, though their lyrics can be a bit...salty.

#1 for me, then, for it's widely known that cream floats to the top! Always dreamed of a tavern pipe to enjoy in calm harbors...

Don't know if it's quite long enough to be called a tavern, but those take a bit longer to smoke than you might suspect. The tobacco really tamps down!

So long as it makes me look like I'm in a Hogarth print, I'll be happy as a pig in the proverbial!

And so, to keep on moving toward the main treasure, the crew returns to the ship and starts off again...still in the midst of picking pipes.

The Cap'n. muses..."Hmmm. Number 7...number 9...pieces of EIGHT I be thinking! Har, har....."


"Avast! What be that rank smell...and that commotion over the port side...go lookee Mr. Smee!  What!  All hands...to stations...we be attacked by a monster from the deep!!!  Smee...lower the longboat and harpoon the Beastie afore it does some kind of foul damage. Look lively there lads! Feel free t'bless that Beastie with a musket ball if ye gets a clean shot!"

"My God! It bit clean through his oar!"




Look! There...right behind the first! She's TWICE as big as the first!  And she's after the other one! Look at 'er go! Back off Smee! Leave have at each other! Git yer boat back up an stowed! Let's be off with us.



Lordee, they be tearing each other apart. It be our good luck, that.

Well, that's a blessin'!

SPUD said he wanted #7 if available, so I'm assuming I can jump on in here...

I'll take #5

Thanks!

OK...to reiterate...

1. Blackhorse (third) picked #3
2. Gravel (tenth) #4 by default
3. GrampaGrossbart (fifth) picked #1
4. Spud15 (seventh) picked #7
5. PozzSka (eighth) picked #5
6. Fatman (fourth) picked #8
7. Growley (sixth) picked #6
8. d4klutz (second) picked #2
9. BigCasino (ninth) picked #9
10. Mozjo33 (first) picked #10


And so our little adventure is done. And on we sail toward that island in the sun...the island of gold!

Got two more boxes in today...just one remains...having been waylaid by agents in league with the Crown! But it has been rescued and returned to the field and is in play once again.

Hopefully more pics later. I'll be taking' a break from pirating on Sunday...visiting Easter Island with family, boiling eggs, roasting another pig, you know the drill.

Niner...good pick! Good size and a good performer. Don't need to treat her special or baby her...but always eager, she'll take good care of you. I didn't have a chance to clean her up mych , but I will. You're lucky to get 'er!

Two came in last evening...assume it was one of those.

You know, the funny thing is that everyone must think I know the real world name corresponding to their online designation. I don't. It's been quite the little detective game figuring out which box came in from which pie-rat.
