Easter Monday

Good morning everyone. We had a very quiet Easter Sunday with just my wife & daughter AmyLynn. I cooked dinner but after we had a serious problem. The sink started to fill up with water, meaning the pipe was filled with whatever. I tried to fix it but this morning we had to call the plumber. Oh well.
Yesterday afternoon I enjoyed a cup of coffee with Gary, a former student of mine. He & I have kept close and try to get together at least once or twice a year. Gary is a detective in the London Police Dept. Many of my former students are in the police dept. and I even have a former student in the RCMP. I'm very proud of all of my former students.


A pirate walks into a bar and the bartender says, "Hey, I haven't seen you in a while. What happened, you look terrible!"
"What do you mean?" the pirate replies, "I'm fine."
The bartender says, "But what about that wooden leg? You didn't have that before."
"Well," says the pirate, "We were in a battle at sea and a cannon ball hit my leg but the surgeon fixed me up, and I'm fine, really."
"Yeah," says the bartender, "But what about that hook? Last time I saw you, you had both hands."
"Well," says the pirate, "We were in another battle and we boarded the enemy ship. I was in a sword fight and my hand was cut off but the surgeon fixed me up with this hook, and I feel great, really."
"Oh," says the bartender, "What about that eye patch? Last time you were in here you had both eyes."
"Well," says the pirate, "One day when we were at sea, some birds were flying over the ship. I looked up, and one of them shat in my eye."
"So?" replied the bartender, "what happened? You couldn't have lost an eye just from some bird shit!"
"Well," says the pirate, "I really wasn't used to the hook yet."

Long ago, when sailing ships ruled the waves, a captain and his crew were in danger of being boarded by a pirate ship. As the crew became frantic, the captain bellowed to his First Mate, "Bring me my red shirt!". The First Mate quickly retrieved the captain's red shirt, which the captain put on and lead the crew to battle the pirate boarding party. Although some casualties occurred among the crew, the pirates were repelled.

Later that day, the lookout screamed that there were two pirate vessels sending boarding parties. The crew cowered in fear, but the captain calm as ever bellowed, "Bring me my red shirt!". The battle was on, and once again the Captain and his crew repelled both boarding parties, although this time more casualties occurred.

Weary from the battles, the men sat around on deck that night recounting the day's occurrences when an ensign looked to the Captain and asked, "Sir, why did you call for your red shirt before the battle?". The Captain, giving the ensign a look that only a captain can give, exhorted, "If I am wounded in battle, the red shirt does not show the wound and thus, you men will continue to fight unafraid". The men sat in silence marveling at the courage of such a man.

As dawn came the next morning, the lookout screamed that there were pirate ships, 10 of them, all with boarding parties on their way. The men became silent and looked to their Captain for his usual command. The Captain, calm as ever, bellowed, "Bring me my brown pants!

A cruise ship passes by a remote island, and all the passengers see a bearded man with an eyepatch running around and waving his arms wildly.

Captain, one passenger asks, who is that man over there?

I have no idea, the captain says, but he goes nuts every year when we pass him.

  1. Sorry about the clogged sink. I hate it when that happens. Hubby puts white vinegar down our drains once a month and that takes care of that. All you need is one cup in each drain and then let it sit for hour or so. It eats all the icky stuff out.

    Love all the pirate jokes.

    Have a fabulous day and week, Paul. 😎

    1. Thanks Sandee. Good idea. I will use it once the pipes are fixed.

  2. Laughing at your pirate jokes Pauleo got me hooked (get it) :-)

    That's such a pain when things like that happen with the plumbing good advice from Sandee though ;-)

    I like that you keep in touch with your students too

    Well I ended up in A&E yesterday morning and was kept in overnight I had a bad bacterial infection all OK now :-)

    Have a good Easter Monday Pauleo

    1. Steveo my friend, you have to be careful about those bacterial infections. I worry about you.Please be careful.

  3. I hope you had a lovely Easter (except for the sink problem). I love the pirate humour (the brown pants were quite funny).

    1. Yes Rhonda, I thought that brown pants one was funny myself.

  4. Thanks for the laughs, and i hope your sink troubles are over (i'm going to try that vinegar trick Sandee mentioned).

    1. Sandee's husband is smart. So is Sandee. See ya Mimi.

  5. Hope the sink problem has been fixed. I will also try out the vinegar suggested by Sandee.

    1. My sink problem has been fixed. We are very happy now.
