While elrin was preoccupied with Sparrow, and ttbk was searching for some more rum, Tooks snuck aboard and went below deck to the officer’s quarters. She sat down and leaned back in the chair. Time for a rest. A sudden lurch of the ship sent her crashing to the floor.

She struggled to her feet, grasping at the wall. Her hand grabbed an ornate knob, and a panel swung out, sending her to the floor yet again.


“What the….”

Tooks stood up and peered inside. It was a hidden safe! A single piece of paper lay inside. She took it out and unfolded it with trembling hands. To her amazement and delight, it appeared to be a map. A large X marked at spot represented by a golden coin.

Tooks quickly refolded the map. She placed it deeply within her coat pocket for safe-keeping. She would examine it at more length later, and figure out where this ‘treasure’ was hidden…..

After rescuing her true love from Sil's clutches the two find a place to hide and begin to chat, finding that they had far more in common than either of them had thought they would. The PB's great joy he desides to dump "what's-her-face-skinny-a-double-crooked-letter-blond" for the spunky, chubby, brunette...

After a long, long absence protecting sea turtle nesting grounds on the far side of the world, Bess returns to check on Tooks, nl and the rest of the crew.

**Well, things haven't changed much...there's still strong drink, handsome hunks, sun and sea shanties**

And speaking of sea shanties...

**Bess takes a slug of rum, clears her throat and begins to shant..er, chant**

There was a young sailor
Who looked through the glass,
And spied a fair mermaid
With scales on her--island

Where seagulls
Fly over their nests
She combed the long hair
That hung over her--shoulders

And caused her
To tickle and itch.
The sailor cried out
"There's a beautiful--mermaid,"

A-sitting out
There on the rocks,
The crew came around
A-grabbing their-- glasses

And crowded four deep
To the rail,
All eager to share
In this fine piece of-- news.

Which the captain soon
Heard from the watch.
He tied down the wheel
And he reached for his--crackers

And cheese which
He kept near the door.
In case he might someday
Encounter a--mermaid.

He knew he must
Use all his wits
Crying "Throw out a line.
We'll lasso her-- flippers."

And then we will
Certainly find
If mermaids are better
Before or be--brave

My good fellows."
The captain then said.
"With fortune we'll break
Through her mermaiden head--ing to starboard
They tacked with dispatch.
And caught that fair mermaid
Just under her--elbows

And hustled her
Down below decks,
And each took a turn
At her feminine--setting

Her free at the end
Of the farce,
She splashed in the waves,
Falling flat on her--after

A while one man
Noticed some scabs,
Soon they broke out with the pox
And the--scratching

With fury,
Cursing with spleen,
This song may be dull
But it's certainly clean.

**bowled over by Tooks, Bess gets warily up off the deck and picks--Cheerios?? Is there a parrot around?--out of her hair**

Well, it's a pirate's life for me, you know that! Cap'n Jack, buried treasure, how could I resist?

I lurk a lot but haven't had much time to devote to an online presence for over a year. I'll try to stop by more often.

Ah, syl has been AWOL since her contestant won the Male of Star Trek pageant. Guess her and Riker are making the rounds of the Talk shows and whatnot. :roll:

Satch hardly comes around any more. Guess she has a...life.
*shudder* ;)

Nice of ya to stop by. I know we can always count on you for good stories and songs. :D

Is this treasure going to get us into trouble? You know Tooks has a way of getting us into trouble. :P I don't really want to participate in any sword fights. My sabre is for decorative use only. Ditto the parrot. Do not push me into the water unless I am wearing red and there are no whaling boats in the area. I am very susceptible to mistaken identity and harpooning when in the water, especially when wearing black or grey. :shock: If, however, the ship begins to sink for some reason, grab onto me because I am completely unsinkable! :)

Hey.

I get us into trouble? Me? Moi? Lil' ol' moi?
Ha.

According to my map the treasure is on that island over THERE. **points east**
So that is where we will go. Sword fights are always a possibility when you're on a pirate ship. :)
And the parrot can fight. I saw him sharpening his beak just a while ago.

Good luck elrin. Petsmart!!! I would :heart: to work at Petsmart. :D

Under the big X, of course! :lol: :roll:

Nice to meet you Calma. :)

nl, hope life has been treating you well. Everytime I lurk here you have been on another fascinating trip. Go you!

elrin, good luck at the Petsmart job fair. My daughter's dearest wish is to work there...or at the riding stable...or maybe a squire for the jousting knights at the local Ren faire... :roll:

I handle litigation for an insurance company, including maritime cases now. Would you believe I have not one, but two exploding canon claims? One even involves a rocket scientist!
