Humph! I guess they're out on a bender somewhere.  


While we're waiting...I thought it would be good to introduce our XO on this little adventure...Mr.Smee!  Freshly minted as a new penny, Mr. Smee comes to us after an extended stint with old Hook over in Neverland. That ended badly foir them, but turns out well for us! Something about some lost kids and a hungry Crocodile. But then...aren't they all!  Well, their loss is our gain...since he made off with most of Hook's treasure...and donated it to OUR ship! Matter of fact, it's what we've divvying up right now...and there's more to come. So let's all give a rousing cheer for Mr. Smee!

I know you've all heard about "the black spot" - a vote of death to a crewman caught cheating or sommat. Well, we've just voted and Smee is being given the other side of that coin...the PLAID SPOT!  Congratulations Smee, and welcome aboard!

Thank ye kindly, Cap't, sir! I'll be searching the bilges for crewman Growley! He has to choose, Latakia or Tonquin! Of course, as mentioned, he may have the ship's copy of 'Playpipes' or the new issue of 'The Pipe Collector'. . . .

Good old Smee--glad to see you made it out of that Never Never Bollocks in one piece, and I'm sure it'll be a rotten, black-hearted pleasure to serve with ye! That spot o' tartan is well-earned, well-earned indeed, and the donation you've made to the cause shall not soon be forgot!

My apologies in advance, laddie-bucks, but I'm like as not going to be gone all the day--Cap'n has me scraping barnacles without the benefit of dry dock, if ye know what I mean. But since I'm next in line after Shipwright Growley I thought it proper to declare me intentions in advance, if that's a worthy plan to all and sundry...So depending on Growley's decision, I'll take either A or B, whichever be left after he makes his choice--I have lots o' fond memories of sailin' back in '92, afore the Yanks passed that meddlesome Naval Act of 1794, and what can I say, I've got me a sweetness for that pretty Kevin Kline lass--sings like an angel, she does:



Plus, I spent a bad week of shore leave in Bombay the once, and the once was enough without any "extras", and I'd sooner take an Albatross to a Condor tied 'round my neck.

Now, assumin' Growley don't take neither A nor B, have the brother behind me decide which of the twain shall be mine--I'm sure I can trust good ol Spud to steer me true!

A'course, if this is all a mite too messy for as clean a crew as ours, let the soup simmer 'til I'm back anon and we'll settle it proper then. Cheers!

Ahhh. So THAT'S why you sent the PM three times.

Mr. Mike...and the rest of you blokes...please know that I have been around the block more than once...more than a hundred times. I realize that you will need my address to send me your box. (DUH)!) So...trust me to send it to you...at the proper time.

I'm currently prepping an area where I can safely set out your boxes...a sort of work area, secure from Watson, my devoted companion...devoted to rooting his little busybody nose into everything that doesn't concern him! I wanted to wait to send my address out til I was ready...knowing as soon as most of you had it you would be compelled to send be your stuff NO MATTER what date I specified here, as it's always the case that only half the group would stoop to actually reading anything! lol

And Mike, I think you tripped a setting that sends you a copy of the PM along with your intended target. One way to check if it's gone out is to open the Outbox and/or the Sent box on your PM page. "Out" for gone out but not opened up..."Sent" for having been opened by the receiving party.

And all y'all...let's just wait til we come up in the proper order to announce our choices, or it will soon become a very tangled web indeed.

All this is expected...all this is why we're doing a 'trial run'...to find the rough spots and determine how best to smooth them before the big thing. So excellent, and keep looking for Growley! lol

I think that Easter season might be a busier than normal season for him.

OK...here's what we're going t' do. I'm a Policy Man myself. I likes ta have a plan...a set way of doing things so all of us knows what to expect...and so nobody can pull a fast one!

Now this little par-tay was a springer. We pulled the rabbit out ta the hat on y'all with no warning, like. So what we'll do is be generous and give a man 24 hours ta get back to ship and claim his place in line. So...in this situation, I'm callin' the clock as starting at 6 p.m. Pacific Time. So Mr. Growly has til 6 p.m. PT tomorrow... and if'n he ain't chimed in to make is draw...his name drops to the bottom of the pile as dead last! Arrr ye with me, Mateys?

We'll all know well in advance when the Big Treasure Party comes up and I'll expect ye all to stay close and tend to business. But we'll then be drawing in lots of ten...and won't carry any picking events into the wee hours, etc. Lord know you lot needs yer beauty sleep!

Sorry Guys!!!! Life has bit me in the rear lately. I'm sorry to keep you all waiting.

I don't don't think I'll ever turn down Penzance. I've only got a small sample and would love to add to it. So I choose A. Penzance if it's still available.


Again, I'm very sorry for the wait.  Embarassed

PS...ARRRRRRRR!!!
