Playland

I've been up to NY to visit family and haven't lifted a needle in a week. There was a new addition in the backyard. Yep, it's a pirate ship alright. Complete with gangplank, rigging and yardarms although my brother took down the jolly roger because a neighbor complained. Just wait until he puts the Christmas lights all over the mast! They are having the time of their lives with this. That's Rob, Emma, (one of the neighbors who is really happy about the USS Braine being docked at Port Useted) and Rob's boys Reno & Ryder...um, I think that's Reno in the choke hold. Even Debo joins in...

Great backyard playset. My sons would of loved one in their backyard. (They are to old now)

A: Why would the neighbors object to the flag? Afraid they'd be boarded?

B: to Dubiquilts--you're never too old to play pirates!

It was something about devil worship(?) - they are elderly and very religious. He decided to strike the flag rather than provoke old neighbors and good friends. Certainly not something to fuss over.

Ohmigoodness! It's just a Jolly Roger. Obviously this guy doesn't watch the History Channel. A pirate ship like that deserves it's flag, what fun! ARRR!
