Caturday Arrrrt, Me Hearties!

Shiver me timbers and swashbuckle me sprogs. 
It's that time again, you scurvy old dogs!
Avast and Ahoy! Let's play the odd prank.
If you don't toe the line, you shall walk the plank!

Me Roger is jolly and I've saved me some booty.
But I can never sit down on my cutie patootie!
The mutinous crew rise up and steal all
And then they vote that me they'll keelhaul!

The moral here is plain, it's no shocker!
If you don't want to be thrown in Davy Jones' Locker.
Treat your mateys fair and give them their due.
And then they will not yo-ho-ho you!
Yes, it's THAT time of year again, when we forget all semblance of normality and talk like Long John Silver on speed! It's Meow like a Pirate day!

The Staff made me and Tigger and Mini-Me dress up and look really stoopid, but that's ok, we can rise above that. What we can't rise above is the telescope which is stuck to my eye with no visible means of support! MOL. The Staff used pretty well every photo editor in existence for this and she still couldn't get it right. Bless! But we give her ten out of ten for trying :)

There is a big pirate pawty going on at Speedy's all this weekend. Just click on the image below to check it out.

We are also joining in with Athena and Marie's Caturday Art blog hop which might or might not be pirate related! Click on the badge below to take a look see.


Many of you have had your picture sketched by Mr Thomas Clausen of "One Drawing Daily". You can see mine over in the side bar. Well, did you know he now also does commissioned pet portraits?

He has a specially designated web site, so you can check it out for yourselves. The portraits are indeed very good. You can visit him here.
