Most interesting article popped up on screen this A.M. "Blackbeards Cannon Found", yet to be verified.

Thought it might an Appro Po subject for Halloween.:)

The "Queen Anns Revenge"--Flagship of one, Edward Teach, AKA "Blackbeard"

Teach was a rather large man for the time--over 6 ft tall when the norm was about 5'5".
Black heavy hair and beard.He put Slowmatch in his beard and lit them, fire and smoke, along with red ribbons--Get the Picture Yet?--chuckle.

His favorite punishment for unruly crewmembers --"Be Keelhaul".
A rope was tied about one's waist, and thrown "Fore 'Ta 'Aft"" overboard, the person was dragged along the bottom of the ship---OOOhhh barnacles--and was pulled to the surface -'Aft---only took one time to be Keel Hauled to make one think before being unruly aboard "Ship".

Which bench will they sit on you think?

Did you know Mook is a place south of Nijmegen? A famous battle took place on its heath! Do you think 'our' Mook is named after it?

The third on the right, back to sun--and shining brightly in that little clearing to the left.-

Interesting--re:Mook--looked it up, 1570's.

I recall Nijmegen being somewhat of a fracas during WWII.

Frost here this morning--beautiful foilage.

"And that is fine , said I whatever one tends to celebrate.
For me a very long, disappointing one,all my experiments failed, as I 'Trad the frozen stone steps up to the North Tower.

"Not ten steps up my "Jenny Wrens" flew about--"Master, you are cold and in need of sustinence!"

"Yes ,I know and on this foul day, here are 'some breads, for you, there is no salt in them, there is much talk of Witches,Ghouls and Spirits down below"
