Pirates of Pensacola, Chapters 27-31
1) I was a complete chicken as a child, but Polly found that warnings of a sea monster, intended to keep the kids close to home, just made her want to explore even more. Were you ever given a warning that backfired- making you have a stonger desire to do that which was warned against?

2) What was the sea monsters' name?

2b) Why does that name make me imagine the monster wearing a tophat and monocle? Oops, sorry, rhetorical question.

3)Polly lives for the pursuit of aventure; Morgan, in pursuit of stability; Isaac, in pursuit of gold. What do you live in pursuit of?

4)What's the strangest way or place that you've begun a relationship?

5)"Single-stick" and "head bumping" sound like interesting sports to watch, although I'm partial to the Caber Toss myself. What's your favorite sport to watch?

6) What's the oddest item you've bought at auction?

7) What's your weakness?

8) Describe your arch-enemy.

This section offers lots of lovely word-pictures to spark your imagination. Please send in your scrimshaws now.

Pirates of Pensacola...Chapters 23 - 26
1) Is the glass half empty, or half full?

2) (Other than Bolidar), does true evil exist? Explain.

3) Isaac and Morgan are convicted of numerous crimes, including “swimming to far from shore.” Have you ever been convicted of a crime? Should you have been?

4) What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever heard a bird say?

5) Haiki sounds like it should be the plural form of haiku. Write a PoP related haiku.

6) A character is described as “Not the brightest bulb anywhere there are bulbs.” What’s you favorite euphemism for “stupid”?

7) As a child, were you good at hide & seek? What was your favorite hiding place?

8) What was the most misguided act of chivalry you’ve seen? Is chivalry dead? Should it be?

9) Where was the elusive hiding place of the key to the Sea Patrol boat?

10) Do you have any tattoos? Details, please.

Scrimshaws now being accepted.

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,

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?
