Scrimshaws for Chapters 7, 8, 9 & 10
Gnomie drew a swell scrimshaw, but I am having trouble getting it in to photobucket. I will keep working on it and put it up later today, hopefully. For now, here's the rest. Again, great job and I really can't tell you all how much I enjoy these.

Those are great! Trillian, that is quite a conch. Looks good enough to eat. I promise to join back in next week when things settle down...ha!

I never eat seafood so I didn't know what a conch looked like until now! Thanks Trillian.

RDD - I resent you my scrimshaw in paint format in case that makes it easier for you to use. But I must say that I didn't actually draw the whole thing myself, I copied part of the picture off a picture I'd been sent via email and then drew around it... I just couldn't draw the image anywhere near as well as it was already done!

Love the Latour, I mean the Lafitte, Rancette! I'm a little confused about the conch and chapter 10, but maybe that's because I've had some Lafitte? Happy days all...

More scrimshaws that are great--Flarq is now scrolling down the craigslist help wanteds looking for something else to do as he is clearly redundant. The Lafittes would have been wise to go along with Rancette (but who wouldn't) and make wine. The bird scene is no scrimshaw so much as art: beautiful, WJ. That conch is so nicely done it wouldn't look bad on rye. Bastardess, not only highly swell but makes me wonder whether we've met in a past life.

You're pulling my wooden leg, Keith. Never underestimate the powers of a bona fide piratess!
