He will soon leave her high and dry once the credit card is maxed and move on to the next "girlfriend". You should be worried.

Break out the pirate flag and the cannon , keep you powder dry and blow him to kingdom come!

However in order to not be lame you should design your own Pirate flag (properly known as a signal).
Yeah, but he's a Plumber...which is almost as good as a doctor (which is what I wanted her to marry)

So far he's installed a new vent pipe for me and says he can get me the hook up on a slightly used "super flusher" toilet ...


So we'll have to play this one out a bit...

Only a few growlers on the beach the night before. This was early AM and we were packing up our camp.

One time I was on a beer festival.. and I was drinking... and I was doing some really stupid things... And a police officer told me to move along.


Since then I've bought many pirate flags.

Learn from this and drink a lot

Not sailing, but rafting once in our personal rig we got a serious talking-to by local law enforcement on the San Juan River. They nearly confiscated our numerous pirate flags we had flying from the grab line around the raft. Take from that what you will; personally I won't be flying them again.

Good times.

Oh, and Pirate flags are only a little bit lame. If anything, having a fat, rich, white guy on his yacht fly a pirate flag should be seen as at least comically (if not tragically) ironic.

Lastly, I cannot believe this thread is still alive. Hey OP, are you still there? See what you did?!? Let this be a lesson to you. Next time, ask about gun rights, religion or politics; you know, something less inflammatory than pirate flags.

I don't think the original poster has logged on in almost six years He joined in July 2010, and last post was Oct. 2010

I had high quality Radio Shack microphones that cost $2.47 each (I'm guessing)

And you are right.. there has been some serious bickering on this thread

I hope your mother walked in the room and had a conversation similar to:

"what are you doing... don't shuush me, why are you pointing at the radio.. o you are recording."

Like my mom did

It always made the recording more entertaining for my friends.
