I love Talk Like A Pirate Day. Mostly because it's also my wedding anniversary [Big Grin]

And yes, three years ago we did discuss whether we should replace the wedding liturgy's "I do" with "yarr". [Snigger]

Avast ye me hearties!

At noon I strolled around the park by the office in which stands Tredegar House, former home of the Morgan family. Admiral Sir Henry Morgan was a member of this family and he was probably Britain's most successful privateer (a sort of licensed pirate) of the 17th century. I believe we 'ave some Captain Morgan's rum stashed away, though this be duty paid [Frown]

T'weren't me nor any of me mates. We 'ave more class than to get drunk on Lambrini*. An' we wouldn't steal a ferry for goodness sake. May as well take a barge!

*Is it possible to get drunk on Lambrini?
