The Scurvy-est thing I saw today.

While talking a brisk walk through the park by my home, I came upon a man head towards the shore of the tiny lake with an air of determination.

He was dressed as some sea men have been known to dress, he carried a bucket one might take to fish, but rather than a pole, he had a handmade gadget that I am not sure has a name:

Twas this the Pirate of Powderhorn Lake?!?!!?!?
I knew the neighborhood had riff raff but I had no idea it had gotten this bad!
This picaroon was dressed in pirate boots, a piratey hat, and, I kid you not, a puffy shirt.
Along with the bucket, he carried a black pole with a child sized plastic chair stuck on the end. I have no clue what that is for- perhaps a perch for his parrrot or to tend to the futtocks shrouds?

Hey now, what's with all the anti-pirate smack talk?

this is too great for words.

i'm going to the fancy dress shop to buy this get-up right after i go to the barber and ask for a scoop toss.

kid's chair-stick-pole is the new black. everyone must get one. consumerism on high. buy buy buy.

oh goodness! i suppose you could have an entirely new daily blog "what i saw in powderhorn-- belive it or not." some could be true, some false. we could all guess. it would be fun. wait! no. you don't need any more blogs to keep up, busy lady.

...well i don't think he goes for "porn" per say. i saw some links in his firefox history when we were in college once. we had a big knock down, drag out over it. and i don't think he's looked since.

i think the SG bothers me less because they're "real" girls -- not some gussied up skanks. plus, i think half of his looking is fascination -- you never know what's going to be around the next corner LOL.
