Arrrggggghhhhhh To Ya Fayette County Matey!

Do you remember those romance novels which were chock full of swashbuckling pirates in their flowing white shirts and handsome, rogue looks? Do you remember how all the fair young maidens would swoon at the sight of these men? Do you remember all the pirates always won the fair maidens' hearts?

Well, far be from me to lose those memories. Just to keep all things pirate alive and well, I invite everyone to join in on September 19 for the International Talk Like A Pirate Day Celebration.

Tis true. Two young men with the pirate names of Ol' Chumbucket and Cap'n Slappy have been promoting their cause since 1995. This year, they are off to Philadelphia to celebrate their self proclaimed day with a real pirate exhibit of National Geographic.

Tis incredible. There are all sorts of grassroots plans for the weekend. If you want to learn more, just go to their website.

Kudos for one of the participants of the weekend by offering her profits on pirate pins to support breast cancer awareness and early mammograms.

If you happen to be headed into Savannah for the day, be sure to stop in the Pirate House. They are even offering discounts to patrons who speak like a pirate on the 19th.

Arrrrr, matey!
