Ahoy Me Maties- It’s Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Filed under: Holiday,Humor — Laura R @ 8:18 PM

We was out plunderin’ and buryin’ treasure all day, so we ain’t gots anyt’in’ origenals te show yer.  Tis a wondrous day to revisit a previous adventure with me mangy crew o’ scallywags.  I know you’ve met them.

Lets remind everyone of the crew names

and how we came to be pirates.

Feel free to sing along.


Our captain had been invited to a wondrous feast, not knowing there was a chance the main course could be frogs legs.

 While he was enjoying himself, the rest of the crew was hard at work.


A brief interlude whilst I tries to remember the rest of the tale

 Arrgggh, yuppers, me maties, I remembers.

Ye may not wants to play this next catchy tune with the nipper snappers in the room as it is one to stay in yer memory and be sung over and over.
Thanks to Pirate John Powers.


Our very own Captain is in disquise for this clip.

 Let’s just say it all worked out in the end


and we were off on another adventure.

Our everlasting love and admiration to Jim Henson.

If’n ye wants to talk like a pirate today, and we hopes you do, there is an official site to helps you git started.
And another special site where to git yer official Pirate Iden-tity. Some call it a name generator.  Come back and tell me what it is.

Before you go, leave me an arggh or ahoy.


Ye all has ter hop over to me matey Kim’s blog and see her Pirate treasure.
Do it before I makes ye walk the plank!

  3. Re: your comment on my post- “How do you get it all done? This has been an inspirational post for sure. Ideas and just amazement at your talent and energy. I can imagine a visitor to your home admiring a cloche or vignette and an entire story unfolding.”

    Let me say that you are entirely too generous with your flattery! Often, I don’t accomplish half of what I set out to do, due to time constraints and life beyond blogging getting in the way. But I do what I can to make our home more comfortable and inviting, so I guess I am content enough with what gets done. 🙂
    I hope you’ll continue to stop by and visit. You certainly did make me feel good about myself! Thanks.

  10. Hello my friend…

    What a fun post!!! Loved that you shared it with us for Sunday Favorites this week! Eeeks…I just realized…I’m not talkin’ much like a pirate and I fear walkin’ the plank! Hehe! Jim Henson was quite the man! It’s been awhile since I’ve watched the Muppets. It used to be a daily ritual when I took care of my grandson! Ahhh..sweet memories!

    Warmest wishes,
