The festivities are underway! We have left port and we're aboard our ship, The Bonnee Lass (christened by our poet laureate, Miss Maddie ). Good call on the extra-large ship as we have a full crew, all of who are listed directly to the left under the Swashbuckler Soiree Banner. Click on each artist to see how they are celebrating the party!
I have been starving myself all week to fit into this dress! I certainly want to look my best for that certain someone- (back off, Lisa!)
It's a good thing the laces can be loosened as I plan to enjoy and indulge myself all day. Speaking of....
Oh! I believe this is just what I need. Bowls and bowls of candy.
And a little Pirate's Booty!
And of course, we need to toast each other as we take our Maiden Voyage. A bit of rum perhaps?
Or maybe a spot of ale instead.
There's plenty to go around. Or if you prefer....
we do have lemonade.
All served up by our special bartender, Jerry. Finally, he's comfortable in his shirt!
What's this? Someone is breaking into song! Oh, I love it!
From A Favorite Opera, Pirate boy.
And a selection of pirate songs. But who is that singing??
Adam Ant!!! (for sure,a pirate before his time). And now he's singing an extra special pirate song.
Oh, this is so, so, wonderful- good company, food, drink, entertainment. I'm so glad you all are here. I'm so enjoying mingling with you.
But what's the commotion over in the corner? I see Sylvia running over to me. "He's here, he's coming aboard!!"
OMG! Quick, tighten the laces. He's making his way over to me!!
He leans in and whispers that he is here only for a moment. That if I am to go with him, I must leave right away- abandon my crown and sail away. But wait, I beg. The Soiree, my friends, the candy- I can't leave this very minute.......can I?
Check back Sunday after 5:00 to see what I've decided to do ( like you need to ask!). If I go, I must forfeit my crown so a new Queen of the Swashbuckler Soiree will be crowned!
Until then, enjoy yourselves, visit with each other and accept a huge thank you for attending OUR Soiree!
