Go Figure

I see puzzle pieces.
Everywhere.
I close my eyes.
And there they are.
Superimposed over
Everything else.

AND

I hear pirate music.
It's haunting refrain
Replays in my head
The king and his men
Stole the queen
From her bed...



Think I need a break from the jigsaw?
And Pirates??
Yo ho, all together
Hoist the colors high.
Heave ho, thieves and beggars
Never shall we die.

P.S. Just found out I'm going to the beach for Thanksgiving weekend. Yeeeeeehaaaaaaa!
P.P.S. Maybe I'll find me a pirate. Arrrrr.

Happy Beaching this Thanksgiving. I hope no suicidal whales spoil the fun!

The jigsaw pieces of our dreams and our fears always seem to intrude, don't they?

Happy Weekend, a week in advance!

Pirate themed Thanksgiving party? I think that's something waiting to happen :)

Have you heard the 'Why is the rum gone' remix? All kinds of funny.

Roland, yes, I've been staring at jigsaw puzzle pieces too much for the last week. It'll be good to go to the beach and come back to it with a fresh eye. Happy Weekend to you, too. Will you be having a turkey meal??

Mary, yes, thanks!!

Jamie, NO! I'll have to find that one on youtube and listen, thanks!

Hey Gardner, I've missed you! Happy Thanksgiving to you and give Terry my love and Happy TG wishes.

Catherine, hey that color green is one of my favorites! :) Have a great Thanksgiving.
