Sanny Paws came!!

Harrr, Sanny Paws came last night. Yer Cap'n tried and tried to stay awake but was a tired pirate, specially after being so excited about Sanny Paws all day. So I missed it. Pirate Swedish Selena tell me he had a 30 dog hitch to pull his big sled full of stuff for us doggies. We all got stockins full of cookies. Harrr, so being good pays off sometimes but it sure is hard. Now back to my pirate ways fer New Years.

Being a good pirate

Harrr, as you probably know I watch a fair amount of TV. Last night I be so excited to see a show about modern pirates. Avast, and grab the mainsail Mateys. Those be some very bad pirates. Harr, they so bad they give pirates a bad name. So, yer Cap'N Mav needs to go on record that I am not that kinda pirate. I be the good kinda pirate, swashbuckling, adventureous, and an opportunist fer sure, but definitely not a bad pirate.

Blabber mouths

Harrr, since the blabber mouths spilled the beans on the chicken, here is the tale. It was a fortuituous series of events that pirates dream of.

First mom forgot to feed the chickens and ducks early in the morning. Then she remembered during Cap'n Maverick and Gloria's exercise time. Out Mom be in the chicken house, scoopin food and throwing some grain. Harrrr, the chicken door has no latch from the inside. Harrrr, me nose goes in, then me eyes, harr, then me ears. Drat Mom catches me and out I be. But wait, there be more to the tale.

These chickens be very very old and one had gone to meet her maker over night. Mom comes out and goes to fetch the proper coffin plastic sack for the newly deceased. Back she go to the chicken house and back inside. Harrrr. Me nose goes in, then me eyes, them me ears and then, me whole head. Thar be chickens a bunch walking about and cluckin, just for the pluckin. Mom turns and catch the Cap'N Mav again. But, harr this time she comes out with the chicken in the sack.

This is just too good. Mom holding the chicken higher and higher as Cap'N Mav and Gloria be jumpin and pullin on the sack. By the time Mom got to the unopenable trash cans with the chicken in the sack, the sack be fair tattered. Mom be standing saying words that make even Cap'N Mav blush with the chicken over her head and pounding on the trash can lid. Mateys you gotta know this was the best. Cap'N Mav and Gloria be leapin and snappin and spinnin at that chicken in the sack while Mom be beside herself to get in the can. Finally the can relented and let Mom in and the chicken went to Davey Jones Locker but not before your Cap'N had a good go at it. I even got a feather or two.

So that be the tale of the almost pillaged chicken.

Harrrr, Mom moved me blogger to beta and now the problems are going to begin. First of all, your Cap'n Mav is having a hard time signing in on his own instead of one of the D'Azul Siberians. Arrrrrgggggggg. You can bet your eyeballs I'll have Mom working on this one until we have it fixed.

Three nights in the Life Raft

Harrr, Cap'n Mav here. Three nights I have spent in the Life Raft now. I love it. Much better than sleeping out on the deck of the Good Ship Maverick's Run. Me thinks the weather dudes need to be walking the plank to Davey Jones Locker. How could they be so wrong? There is no 20 inches of snow, no 20 inches of snow, no one inch of snow. We have about one inch of ice, slick, shiny, cold ice. Harrr. Your Cap'n Mav does not like ice. Matey Tubey has snow but not Matey Zim. We're guessing that Sea Wench Stella has snow but have not heard from her yet.

Harrr, back to the warm Life Raft for the Cap'n. Stay warm Mateys.

Life raft

Harr, Cap'n Maverick here. It supposed to be cold last night with ice storm, like that will bother a pirate, harrrr. Anyway Mom set up my Life Raft and made me come in. I love my Life Raft, it has a port hole door and a window over the poop deck. Thar be windows port and starboard too. Thar be pockets on the side for ballast or pirate treasure. My Pirate Life Raft look just like this one. Now thar be no ice last night but Cap'n Mav really enjoyed his bucket of grog and sleepin in the Life Raft. Yer Cap'n expecting to be in tonight too and maybe those humans will get a foto of the Cap'n in his Life Raft for all to enjoy.

Harrr, mateys. Cap'n Mav here. The humans went to Union Station and Science City over the weekend. Lisa had to do some work at the planetarium for her astronomy class. Thar be a Christmas tree show at Union Station and one of the trees is done up as a pirate ship. Thar be a mast and sail, jolly rogers, a cannon with tree, treasure chest and booty. Gripes my hide the humans did not take the camera and sneak a foto. Even though fotos be forbidden. Thar be some talk about buying it but it be pretty pricey for a Christmas tree, even for the ole Cap'n Mav. Not sure when that show ends but its free. Thar be a shop there with shelves O' pirate items too. Me thinks a pirate expedition to check out Union Station be in order.

Turkey booty!!

Harrr Mateys. Cap'n Mav here with a belly full O turkey. I wish. We got a piece of turkey liver and that was all. There be a gallon O gravy left over and yer Cap'n has his sights set on that right now. There be some turkey too. It be in the cold box in the house. Harrrrr. Maybe the Sea Wench Stella can get it open. Or push it over and all the booty spill out. Zim, any fancy ideas? How bout Althea Red Eye, ideas?

Stella says a Santy Claws be coming soon and we can get what we want or make em walk the plank. Harrrr.

Sesame Street pirates

Harrr Mateys. Somebody sent me this great cartoon of the Sesame Street pirates and their booty. Shiver me timbers, that booty looks a bit like Matey Big Bird. I wonder of they made him walk the plank, harrrr. Anyway, me thinks all my mates would get a chuckle from this. Keep up the hunt for turkey booty. I found ours in the sink but it be hard and cold and I could not reach it.

Stella's blog

HARRRRR. Cap'n Mav here mateys. Our pal Stella now has her own blog and you should all go welcome her to the sail the 'net with us. Stella not be a siberian but she lives with a boat load of them so I think she qualifies. Plus the muscle she would add on a pillagin' expedition would be valuable. Welcome aboard Stella, come be a pirate.

new treasure map

Harrr mateys, after a long weekend locked out of the office again, gotta get me own key there, I have found a new treasure map.

Cap'n Mav thinks we may find that turkey booty with this one, or something good besides. Mom got booty from the Lin-con dog show, venison bits. Yum. But thar not be many of them in the bag. She says free sample so all the better.

Cap'n Mav's bestest human friend Lisa the Mean got her wisdom toofs out today. Harrr, hope it doesn't make her stupid. She pretty smart and all before.

Keep hunting the turkey booty, only three more days.

Booty to go for

Harrr Mateys, here be the booty to start looking for. Cap'n Mav was doing a bit o research about this Thanksgivin thing and found this pic. Looks scrumpdiliumptious to me and that be gravy thar too. Its only a week away so the crew needs to start getting their plan together. This one be right on the table mates, no need for a map. Best be that every home will have one, or so the Cap'n hears. Plenty to go around mates. Zim, maybe this be what is in your treasure chest, do some sniffing and find out. Althea Red Eye, get busy girl, up to the crow's nest and keep em peeled for turkey. Turbo, get Lex and Fargo in on it. Tear that kitchen apart until you find that turkey. Harrrrrr

Pillagin plans

Harrr, I be hearin' about some kinda holiday comin' up. Mom calls it cooking day. Seems like a perfect chance to get good pillagin' to me. Pears be nearly gone now, so methinks stocking up on something else is a good plan. Must give this more consideration.

Hats and breaking news

Harrrr, Yer Cap'n Mav is back with breaking news. Rumor is that new Juarez (AKA the Weenie) photos will be posted on the D'Azul blog tomorrow. Me thinks us pirates should add some interest to this boring event. I be searching for the perfect pirate hat to add to Juarez's image as a big joke. has some great hats, too many for Ole Cap'n Mav to be able to pick just one. Me thinks every pirate needs to go take a gander at the hats and say which one we should use to sabotage the new photo event. If any pirates have other ideas, let the Cap'n know. Harrrrr.

No blogging AGAIN

Harrrr, Cap'n Mav is getting mighty tired of this. Once again the fuzzy butts are going away for the weekend and turning off the computer. Shiver me timbers, that should be done by now. At least weenie Juarez is staying home. He is all about himself now that he is a CH. Harrr. Cap'n Mav is a CH too. And Juarez doesn't have his own blog, doesn't even want one. I heard that a photo of Juarez came that makes him look like Yoda. Harrr, wish I could get my paws on that one.

We are getting some good pirate ship names, except for that Rotten Pear comment. Lisa thinks my ship should be named Ship of Fools.

Well ahoy mateys, Cap'n Mav is shipping off now for the weekend. Don't be walkin no planks now.

Name that ship

Ahoy Mateys, Cap'N Mav here. I decided to take a break from the booty search, there be pears a bunch on the ground now. I found this picture of a pirate ship and really liked it.

All nice and shiny with good colors and floats good too. Maybe we could get a ship like this one. Harrr, then we need a name for the ship. I thought of a few like Woooo of the Waves, and Howlin Dawg. I did find a site that makes up names for pirate ships

But some of the names were pretty harr scary, even for your ole Cap'n Mav. How about we all pitch in and name the ship. What say ye mates? Are you up to it?

Fogged in

Harrr, mateys. Your Cap'n Maverick is fogged in this morning. I B searching around the 'net for stuff, mainly a new treasure map, and found a really cool site. If you enter by swinging across you can post poems (Dave, a pirate Haik-woo?), and there are other things to keep a bored fogged in pirate busy. Harrr, a bored Pirate is a pirate in trouble, thats the truth. Your Cap'n didn't have time to check out all the nooks and crannies in pirate pete's ship and has to go back soon.

Harr Maties, don't walk the plank and keep out of Davey Jones Locker Room (little Cap'n Mav humor there).

Pirate news

Harrrr, Cap'n Maverick the Pirate here. Been pillaging pears all weekend, they very sweet and ripe now. Yum.

I hear that weenie, not-a-pirate Juarez is now a new champion. Great, thats just great, now he won't be gone half the time to shows and us pirates will have to put up with his stupid niceness.

Selena did a great job of spying for us. She say something about a "Golden Driller" that was in Tulsa. She say it B a giant statue made of gold that just stands outside. Sounds like booty just waiting to be taken. Selena also say something about a Port of Catoosa that close to Tulsa-place. We can sail the ship down there and snag the Golden Driller. Sounds like a plan. Unfortunately her spy-cam was not working so we have no photos. Mapquest, don't fail me now.

Any pillagin' tales from the rest of the crew?

Cap'n Maverick The Pirate

Thursday, November 02, 2006

I can't believe it

I think we have discovered a pirate in hiding. Meeshka is calling for an uprising on one of the email lists. I heard the AO4 is in on it, so whats the news Zim? Meeshka, do you want to be a pirate?

But I cannot believe Mom and Lisa are leaving me here and going to Okly-Homy. They leave tonight and won't be back until Sunday night late. Of course blogging is out of the question unless I can pirate a way into that office. Maybe the man will forget and let me in. Maybe I can trick him, he is fairly easy to trick.

Anyway, Selena B going so she can report on all the pirate doings at the dog show. Hopefully that wimp Juarez, who does not want to be a pirate, will come home a champion. I B swabbing the decks and scraping the hull to get ready for the winter pillaging season. Pears B almost gone but there are plenty in the hold of the ship.

Sail on, pirate mateys, sail on.

New crew members?

OK, this guy really looks ready to go a pillagin on halloween.

But, do we think he is a real pirate? Would a real dog pirate have a parrot? And why does he look so unhappy? Pirates are always happy. Does he look like a swashbuckler? We need a vote.

and here is the next one.

OK this guy looks like he may make an OK swabbie. He seems small enough to hang around the crow's nest scanning for our next victim. Plus he looks sneaky, I like that. How about a vote for this one.

Do we let these two guys into the crew or make them walk the plank?

Halloween pirates

Ahoy Mateys. Tomorrow is halloween. Do you all have your pirate costumes ready? I don't but that won't stop me from pillagin all those treats that I can find. Somebody sent us an email with two photos of prospective crew members. I am having a hard time getting them to upload on blogger right now but maybe tomorrow morning. Maybe the blogger guys have gone out a pirating.

My Role Model

Yo ho yo ho Mateys. This is my hero Cap'n Jack Sparrow. He is the one who set me on my road to being a pirate. Cap'n Jack Sparrow is my role model. I tried to get into the theater to see the 2nd Pirates of The Caribbean movie but they would not let me in, something about no dogs even though I told them I was a pirate. So now I am waiting impatiently. If you have never seen this Pirates of the Caribbean movie, make sure you get your people to let you watch it. I want to be just like Cap'n Jack, well except I have clean teeth. Harrrrr

And I'm off the internet now until Monday. Mom shuts the computer off, locks the office and takes the key, so I can't blog until she gets back. So far my attempts to obtain a laptop have been futile.

Treasure chest

Harrr, I was cruising around the pirate haunts and found this treasure chest. Oh, this is just what we are looking for. I found it at Billy Bones Pirate Locker They will sell you one with goodies in it but where is the fun in that. This is exactly what we should be digging for mateys.

On other news, the straw is here and I have been busy organizing it in my cabin on the poop deck to make it just right. And last night was turkey neck night.

On with the treasure hunt, dig, sniff, dig, dig, dig, sniff, sniff, sniff, harrr.

Treasure map number two

Shiver me timbers, glad everybody had such fun with the link.

In the meantime, because no one could find treasure with that other map, and Althea may be right that the Nincompoop sabotaged it, I found this one. Its kinda small but looks like we gotta go in the water to the beach, then between the fort and the palm tree, past the skull and something else to the X. We got a pond here so I have been looking for the fort and know that paper palm tree is in the basement. So far I did find an old kiddy fort that is full of fire wood so things may be looking up.

On the other hand, the pears are all really falling now so they won't last much longer and taking a break with a nice ripe frosty pear is great too.

Avast swabbies, get with the plan, we gotta find that treasure or walk the plank.

Yo ho yo ho, I was looking around at some pirate stuff today and found this site

Those are all pictures of different pirate flags. I like the one Bosun's Mate Tubey made us better.

On the treasure, I found a rock, and went three paces to a maple tree and then three more paces and started to dig. There was nothing. We need to get a new map, this one is broken. Maybe the Nincompoop got it.

Treasure maps

Althea Red Eye has an excellent point about using maps and X marks the spot. I had always thought that I marked the spot when I lifted my leg but I guess not. I found this treasure map on the internet. Maybe we can find the treasure under the X on this map.

I could go to Mapquest and type in where I am and "buried treasure." They have a map for everything, doncha-know.

Maps are a touchy subject around here. Mom and the dogs do a bit a traveling for the dog shows and Mom uses this big map book she calls Road Atlas. Kinda like the road warrior, harrr. Anyway she got a new one as a gift. I guess whoever buyed it, did not check the pages carefully and Mom says some Nincompoop removed the pages from West Texas to Utah while Road Atlas was still at the store. I haven't been any place between West Texas and Utah since then. I know CB, Juarez, Penny and Carmen went to Knoxville TN last year and that is not in Road Atlas. She must have gone by dead reckoning.

Everytime somebody mentions a map, we hear Mom go on and on about the Nincompoop. She gets pretty ballistic about it.

What kinda animal is a Nincompoop anyway? Maybe Althea Red Eye knows, she seems to be the brains of the operation. I think she can be the first mate.

Maverick in the Brig

Hey Mateys, Lisa left this morning and will be gone all weekend. Mom is taking care of us so I thought this would be a perfek time to start treasure huntin'. There was some mud I found and it was so great to dig in. But now I am in the brig. OK, its just my run with my house where I usually am, but don't I look like a pirate in the brig. I think so. Anyway I am covered with dark, stickly clay-like mud. I heard that there are places called spas where peoples pay to get covered in this stuff. Do I have a deal for them!! Anyway, all the treasure I found was a rusty horse shoe and Mom took that away. Why don't you all snuffle a great place to dig and go for the gold!!

I'm glad most everybody liked my joke yesterday. I am still laughing, harrr harrr harrr.

A Pirate Joke

Today we have a great pirate joke.

There was an unemployed pirate who decided to do some farming. He grew a big field of corn.

When it came time to sell his crop, how much did he sell it for?

.....R U Ready?.....

......Wait for it......

......Here it comes.......

Answer: A Buck An Ear.

Now that is one corny Pirate joke. Harrrr. I crack myself up.

Treasure hunting

Here is a photo of me treasure hunting earlier this fall. I have several places in the yard that are good spots for treasure. Althea Red Eye had an excellent idea about treasure hunting. I will be getting out my metal detector soon to work on it. If we all scout out great spots, we can have a group dig and discuss the booty.

Tuesday, October 17, 2006

Avast Mateys

Harrrr, its me, Maverick, and the Pirate blog has been launched. So, everybody up to the poop deck and log onto the the Pirate Name Generator. See what name you could use if you don't like the one you have now. In the meantime, the crew roster is linked on the side. Remember, Dead Men Tell No Tales.
