This just in: My sister Janet, tired of the humdrum life of the upright, downtrodden citizen has run off and become a pirate! Aaarggh matey! Word has it she has joined Ye Loyal Krewe of Samuel Bellamy, the Prince of Pirates, and is known to her pirate friends as Lady of the Night Wear.
This picture, extracted from CIA files shows Janet with her new found pirate friend and fellow wench, Brigette. Their immediate plans are to invade Tampa later this month along with the motley Krewes of Gasparilla led by Jose Gaspar. These surly pirates and their wenches invade Tampa each year in February. They throw beads at our children, take over the streets of Tampa and Ybor City, and then when they have maxed out Debby's and Stevie's credit cards they return to their ship and leave town for the exotic realms of the Caribbean remaining elusive until they return the following year. (I'm tellin' Mom)
I am currently negotiating with the Krewe to invade Kat's place and swipe the Faberge egg she claims to have recently purchased in Belgrade while holding Bibi hostage in an armoire. I knew having a pirate in the family would be an advantage.
Congratulations on your new career, Janet. I'll admit it beats sitting home and listening to your 401K make slurping noises. I could use a few doubloons, please.
I received this delicious coffee from The Beanstock Coffee Roasters compliments of Cassoulet Cafe! CC offered prizes of two lbs of free coffee to 5 randomly chosen contestants in return for comments on her blog with a good coffee addict story.
I told CC about the time Mr. Coffee neglected to mention a recall on my coffee maker and the house caught fire early one morning while I was minding my own business shaving my armpits in the shower.
Cassoulet Cafe is a wonderful blog of humor and coffee lore served up with a steaming cup of your favorite brew! Thank you CC! This came just in time to help me weather our Florida cold snap.
