The Sailor and the Pirate

 

The Sailor and the Pirate

A sailor meets a pirate in a bar, and they take turns recounting
their adventures at sea. Noting the pirate’s peg leg, hook, and eye
patch, the sailor asks, “So, how did you end up with the peg leg?”

The pirate replies “We was caught in a monster storm off the cape
and a giant wave swept me overboard. Just as they were pullin’ me out, a
school of sharks appeared and one of ’em bit me leg off.”

“Blimey!” said the sailor. “What about the hook?”

“Ahhhh…” mused the pirate. “We were boardin’ a trader ship, pistols
blastin’ and swords swingin’ this way and that. In the fracas me hand
got chopped off.”

“Zounds!” remarked the sailor. “And how came ye by the eye patch?”

“A seagull droppin’ fell into me eye,” answered the pirate.

“You lost your eye to a seagull dropping?” the sailor asked incredulously.

“Well…” said the pirate, “It was the first day with me hook….”

The wisdom of our ancestors

The wisdom of our ancestors

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world,
I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice more often.
It is in this light I have decided to publish some of my random thoughts based on the views of our ancestors
