The Pirate

Alright enough of this Mrs. Depp tale.
My bonne lass and I have sailed away and have been lying in the white sands of Tortuga, walking the beach, collecting seashells, swimming in the ocean and making...
I have taken her away from her imprisonment, to watch the salt-laden breezes blow through her hair and once again be the pirate wench so true to her heart.
She may tire of this and then I shall return her to reality. In the meantime you shall refer to her as Mrs. Connery.
Alas my wench she beckons.
~The Pirate Connery~

Lazy me I had to go back and just see what you are up too. Surprise, Surprise you are quite the busy bee. Have fun with all your adventures and don't be gone too long now; (MRS. DEPP)!!
