Shiver me timbers and blow the man down. It’s “Talk Like a Pirate Day.” I happen to love this particular day of the year. I’ve played the part of a lady pirate many a time, while the winds be tossing me ship about and the waves swabbing the deck so I don’t have to.

Of all the scurvy dogs out there, my favorite character was Polly the Pirate in a play called “The Treasure Quest.” Our ship ran aground and we landed on a deserted island. I was the ship’s cook and had to resort to cooking the cap’n’s parrot for dinner. We found a treasure map hidden in a coconut – the lines were in the coconut. Actually they were in there so I could remember them.

‘Twas a fine play, it was. I blackened me teeth so it looked like I had none. Today I could play the part by simply removing them. Jack Sparrow, eat yer heart out. Polly the pirate is ready to take ye on. Be prepared to walk the plank and be fed to the sharks. Polly’s cooking tonight.


As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

  3. Great post, Kathy! Pirates are my very favorite. Long ago at Disneyland, my favorite ride was the pirates. I have of course seen all the Johnny Depp movies, too. Here in my neck of the woods, we used to Seafair pirates and hardly a weekend would go by without encountering a pirate somewhere. I know a man with no leg and no eye, not from piracy at all, but he did embrace the role and he is now very popular with the ladies. I totally honor his ingenuity. That’s a genuine overcomer.
