I have only just found out that a final summer revel looms, though; Sunday is Talk Like a Pirate Day. In fact it does not loom west of the International Date Line, where is already underway. Avast, Australia! Too late I discovered (through a Google AdSense link, of course) that this on-line store is having a sale on life-size pirate statues. Not that I could afford one, even at the sale price, but they would make dandy Talk Like a Pirate Day decorations for the idle, spendthrift rich. And, being made of wood and resin, I would imagine they would also make a splendid bonfire to cap the evening's festivities.
Now back out for more fresh air before dawn. It's better than cold beer! Well, almost.
