Continuing with the Christmas Theme

I have another Christmas card for you and then I have to go clean up my stamping area.  I can no longer find anything.

 But first, today is "Talk Like a Pirate Day".  Where did this come from?  September 19th was proclaimed "Talk Like a Pirate Day" in 1996 by John Baur and Mark Summers of Albany Oregon.  It was born of a sports injury when pain with an outburst of "Aaarrr!", and the idea was born.  It was in 2002 that the idea was promoted by Dave Berry, the noted humour columnist.

So, I have to leave you a joke

Question:  What does a pirate use to measure his ship with?
Answer:  A yarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrdstick!!!!!!

I know sick!!

Ok now onto more sane things.
