Shiver Me Timbers!!

Ahoy! Well, me mateys here it is International Talk Like a Pirate Day and I would be remiss if I didn't have some mention of my all-time favorite pirate Capt. Jack Sparrow AKA Johnny Depp.

Actually I'll use any excuse to look at him!

Now HE could carry me off any day and I wouldn't put up a fight!!

Now on to other things. I had a rough day yesterday so no drawing and not much else. First off I felt queasy most of the day and then in the afternoon I fell in the garage while trying to chase down one of the cats....Harley to be specific! I stumbled (long story! If you saw our garage you'd understand!) and fell backwards hitting my back on a metal sawhorse. Luckily my butt landed in a cardboard box (I'm sure that was a funny picture!) and I have a nice big scrape on my back. Sorry about all this but I'm just not feeling very perky today either. It's time for me to weigh anchor! I'm off to pillage the fridge and see what falls out o' the bung hole! Be sure to read the definitions for that last one!!! It isn't as bad as it sounds!


  1. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm my favourite pirate? Captain Pugwash? Now rhere's a thought.

  2. Ouch, I hate it when I fall, Bad kitty bad. I pray you be healed with no permanate damage.Pirates ?
    I love the movie "The Goonies" and of course I think Johnny is a to cute pirate.....BE BLESSED :-)

  3. Bung hole. LOL I'm afraid to look! I LOVE your dancing gypsy!

    Hope you are ok and did not do to much damage to yourself. Love Hugs and Blessings

  5. Johnny is a very dashing pirate, isn't he!
    That fall sound nasty and painful.
    I've stumbled over Vincent a time or two myself.
    Take care of yourself and hope you feel better after taking it easy.

  6. Oh you poor thing - I could feel that scrape as you described it. Take care of yourself or I'll have you keelhauled!

    I wouldn't mind if Mr Depp carried me off either but he would probably do himself an injury trying! xx

  7. AHH, Janet! So sorry you had that fall! I've had a few myself.


  8. Yes, Johnny shivers me timbers , too.

  9. In honor of International Talk Like a Pirate day I went to the Google search and present you with some Capn' Jack sayings...

    "You will always remember this day as the day you caught Captain Jack Sparrow"

    "Stop blowing holes in my ship!"

    "But why's the rum gone?"

    Welcome to the Caribean love..."

    There...bless your heart does that make you feel better...I hope you are all right after your fall!

  10. Sorry you fell, but I have to admit, I saw/read nothing past Captain Jack. Mmmmmm

    Oh, yes, I am sorry you fell. Did I say that already?

  11. Just keep looking at Cap'n Jack and you will feel better soon!
    Have to admit the picture you described did make me smile until I read that you hurt your back. Hope it's all better soon.
    Darn cat..!

  12. Ouch! Ouch, Ouch! My back and tail bone hurt just thinking of it.

  13. OH NO! falling is not good...we can break! I have taken a few bad falls and felt like I had a body lash...everthing hurt.
    Be good to you! Hugs, mary

  14. Oh, my dear friend, I feel so your pain. ouch, ouch. I hope you are ok, really! tell me that you are.

    Ok, Depp, him the eyes, I just can't get over the eyes.

    I had to look up the bung, my dictionary didn't have the hole part, but if I understand correctly, then hmmm, but English is my second language, so it is very possible that I misunderstand the words.

    Take care of you, and take it easy, the drawing can wait. (I have not done any of that since last Friday)

  15. Oh I am so in love with this pirate of the sea...I adored him in ~Neverland~ I could watch it over and over!
    OUCH!! Your fall sounds painfull..get that movie and recuperate.hugs NG

  16. I bet YOU are sore! Please GET WELL!!!((((Janet)))))

  17. Craig Ferguson the talk show host said it was "National Talk Like A Pirate Day" last night. I thought he was joking! ARRR!


  18. Ah, those cats that will go into the strangest of places. Yikes!

    Pirate day - what can I say? I guess I missed it. Hmmm, what was I thinking? Great drawing - I mean picture.

  19. Ow! I'm so sorry about your fall - and about missing 'Talk Like a Pirate Day!' AARGH! Would have been a good day to watch Johhny in action in the movie. Aargh!

    I'm glad you're ok - at least for the most part - what's so funny (funny peculiar) is that I just read another blogpost somewhere about somebody else falling chasing their dog (and getting a hairline fracture in their leg) - and my YDD's boyfriend broke his ankle falling in karate class, And I went on a hike and fell on my big beehind, slid halfway down a hill and knocked the heck outta my arm (I'm ok, it's mostly just bruised and scraped - though I was scared for a moment that it was broke). But it all makes me wonder if there's some planet with retrograde 'falling' action in motion. If so, I hope it's all done now! Take care - hope you feel better. xox
