We will be moving forward with the book club per Trillian's generous offer.

In the meantime, I have decided to pick a scrimshaw winner for the first leg of our story. This highest of honors I bestow on Gnomie, who has amazingly participated without having been able to buy the book and read the story.

So, Gnomie, send in your scrimshaw request along with your mailing addy. If you want a portrait, you can email a picture for him to go off of. If you'd like to see examples of his drawings so you might get a better feel for what you want, visit

Thank you,

Pirates of Pensacola, Chapters 18-22
1. What's the wackiest thing you've ever seen or done at a funeral?

2. Recite the verse following the one Isaac read from Jeremiah.

3. Any interesting experiences with a corpse?

4. Where did JOsiah conceal his weapon?

5. Make as many words out of Paixhan as you can.

6. Do you suppose the word "hood" was derived from "the Hoods"?

7. Anybody now regret a recent purchase and consumption of fish sticks?

8. Favorite line? Mine = "Cripes," Isaac said. "Which was the hard part? 'Get'? 'The'? Or, 'Bible'?"

9. Scrimshaws are now being accepted. Send them in.

10. Any questions for the author or comments?

Running a few hours behind.
New book club questions up tonight. Get those pencils ready. I expect a scrimshaw from every one of you. That includes you too Wendyjo. BTW, your absence from last week was excused. (<,


P.S. Gnomie, I'll be sending you something to scrimshaw.

feenxc, if you want to enter a scrimshaw, just let me know what you would have drawn if you could have drawn it and I'll have one of my kids draw it for you. Okay?

In case you haven't noticed, some of the pictures are no longer visibile. I received an email this morning from photobucket advising me I had exceeded my bandwidth and as punishment for such, they are disabling direct linkage on my account for a month, unless I want to upgrade and pay for a "premium" account, which I am not going to do. So, needless to say, unless some of you out there have any ideas, I really have no clue how to continue, being as I cannot put up any new scrimshaws. Any suggestions?

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.

Pirates of Pensacola, Chapters 7, 8, 9 & 10
1. I wonder if Keith actually went to a barbershop, had them pump the chair up to its highest, and measured. Anyone here willing to do so for the sake of experiment?

2. Who, or what, is "the Very Psychotic"?

3. What would you do with 42.7 million dollars? I want an itemization...

4. Got a favorite one-linter from chapters 7-10? If so, share.

5. Does your significant other, friend, or relative have a habit that drives you batty to the point where if you were stuck next to them on an overcrowded ship for months at a time you might consider arranging their convenient disappearance?

6. What's the most interesting tid bit you learned from Isaac's pirate history lesson?

7. If you have any questions or observations about Chapters 7-10, please post them.

8. Scrimshaws are now being accepted for chapters 7-10. Here's my pitiful attempt:
