Aaarrr… One ‘o me favorite holidays, National Talk Like a Pirate Day

Capt Bookbeard1
I love holidays that are about nothing but having fun. Today we don’t celebrate anyone’s birthday, we don’t acknowledge any particular date in history and we don’t usher in this season or that. It’s all about having fun today, talking stupid and drinking rum. It’s the perfect recipe for a holiday as far as I’m concerned.

I’ll have a double shot of Pirates of the Caribbean with a side of Johnny Depp. Throw in some Treasure Island and I’ll be a happy boy… me and young Jim Hawkins.

There should be more holidays like this. Yesterday was National Cheeseburger Day. I got an email coupon from Ruby Tuesday’s for a free burger, and I was there an hour later. You don’t have to invite me to free, twice.

On this date, a couple years back, I was involved in an event for the Sports Car Club of America at Homestead-Miami International Speedway. Homestead Miami SpeedwayThe crews, drivers and wenches were all playing in to the theme that day and I played music during lunch and after the races for their cocktail hour. There was this one lovely, lady pirate. I shared her picture once before, but as me dear old pappy always said, “Anything worth doin’ is worth overdoin’.” So here she is again.
