Yes. It’s Talk Like A Pirate Day.
So, after the previous update about my escapades with sulfite allergies, I made a personal pledge to never ever again talk about my aches, pains, and other sundry bits of bad news. Because really, no one likes a whiner. And, frankly, everyone gets sick and/or has a bad month/week/year. More often than not, much worse than mine. I have a good life. Plus, I’m an optimist.
I would, however, like to extend my warmest well wishes and kind blessings to Dr. Kevin Hollis, Diane, Jolie, and the rest of the wonderful team at the Floyd Memorial cardiac unit who have taken such good care of my grandfather (and the rest of us, in turn). Without them, the past weekend would have been very horrible indeed, and this particular family will be forever grateful.
Anyway, I am a huge fan of Charlie Huston. I love his books. I would buy anything with his name on it, because he is just so good. Here’s an interview with him.
Have a pirate story? Shimmer is looking for you!
