Talk Like a Pirate Day
My brother and his wife are having a party tonight…
Free dozen donuts if you go to KK in costume today.
I think that’s " AAARRRGGGHHH!"
Well shiver me timbers, me hears that if ye show up in yer pirate finest at ye Long John Silvers ye get a 2 pc fish or chicken basket. Yo ho ho an a bottle of rum, go get yer free stuff me mateys!
OH Magilla Gorilla, I just love their fish! Deep fried lumps of batter and grease and happiness! I only get to eat it on special occasions now…do you think today would be special?
Always ask for extra crunchies. If you’re going to sin, do it big time.
I need some suggestions. I think I told you before that as a granddaughter turns 21 we buy her a diamond necklace. (I’m only talking in the hundreds here and I again thank whoever told me to check pawn shops). Taking granddaughter #2 to dinner tonight to give her her necklace.
My problem is, grandson #1 turns 21 next spring. What would be an equivalent gift, preferably something that would be kept for a lifetime? That’s my main question. After that I have to decide if he’s clean at that time (I doubt it, even though he’s been through rehab, I don’t think he has the self-control to stay off the stuff).
Is there a man’s ring from a male patriarch in your home? It does not need to be loaded with precious metals or gems, but one with a definite family origin.
My son’s were each given a ring for a special life event. The eldest has a grandfather’s Masonic ring and the youngest a small, simple pinky ring that belonged to his great grandfather.
They wear them daily and express a feeling of connection from generation to generation…and these aren’t touchy-feely new age kinda guys.
And oh yeah - to keep on topic…aaaarrrrgh!
Good idea, but the only thing we have that would fit that would be his great-grandfather’s pocket watch. But I’m saving that. I have four diamond rings from various family members that the granddaughters will get. So the pocket watch at that point.
