But Why is the Rum— er, Water Gone?!?

Ahoy, ye scallywags! In honor of International Talk Like a Pirate Day, I am deploying an icon made by cropping N. C. Wyeth’s cover illustration for Rafael Sabatini’s immortal tale of buccaneering, Captain Blood.

Alas, when I rolled out of my bunk at eight bells* I discovered that my supply of potable water had vanished! Fortunately, I had enough on hand to brew my coffee, and a visit to some of the local chandlers** sufficed to replenish my stores.

Now I’m just marking time until my watch on the good ship Nations Unis is over.

I hope you enjoyed fair winds and clear skies, mateys!

* Noon.
** Grocery stores.
