    Sorry to see you go Onaki and Mrs. Alderman.

    I do understand about the lack of inspiration. I've been trying to complete two swaps and I just find myself starting over again and again. Hopefully I'll find you in another one of my swaps!

    I was cleaning out my sticker drawers. and found the cutest pirate 3 d embellishment like stickers. I probably got them at the Dollar Tree store. Not that they were good or perfect for this swap but they sure were cute. Guess that is why I bought them.

    Piracy Was Better Than the Alternatives

    Were pirates desperate men who could not find honest work? Not always: many pirates chose the life, and whenever a pirate stopped a merchant ship, it was not uncommon for a handful of merchant crewmen to join the pirates. This was because “honest” work at sea consisted of either merchant or military service, both of which featured abominable conditions. Sailors were underpaid, routinely cheated of their wages, beaten at the slightest provocation and often forced to serve. It should surprise no one that many would willingly choose the more humane and democratic life on board a pirate vessel.

    Another fun fact:

    We don't actually know how pirates spoke

    The truth is that pirates came from all over the place and the typical west-country accent that we're all familiar would only have applied to a very small number of them.

    The 'pirate accent' as we know it today can be traced back to Disney's adaptation of Treasure Island in 1950 when actor Robert Newton played a pirate from the west-country and seriously overdid the accent. He did the same thing a few years later in Blackbeard The Pirate, and so the stereotype was born.

    I got a new puppy, and my life has not been my own. I can finish my cards and mail them on Monday. I think they'll make it to Tennessee by the 21st.
