Pirates of the Susquehanna


Yo Ho, Yo Ho!
A Pirate’s life for me!
We pillage and plunder and we rifle and loot
Drink up, me Hearties, Yo Ho!
We kidnap and ravage and don’t give a hoot!
Drink up me hearties, Yo Ho!


Spent Saturday night with me crew swillin’ grog ‘n carryin’ on. Since we already layed waste to all the towns between Lewisburg and Sunbury, and burnt to the ground all the villages between Montomery and Milton on other trips, we left our saucy wenches behind, and set off to put the water between Milton and Lewisburg under the keels and claim the entire lower 23 miles of the west branch Susquehannna river for our own selves. Savvy?

This summer’s conquest


Cap’n Bone, the Klinutor/Klinutus brothers, Stinky (the bilge rat), and the Mad Taoist rounded out me crew.

Klinutus on the rope swing
Shiver Me Timbers, Klinutus found a rope swing!

Treasure was what we was after, an’ treasure we found. In a secret lagoon, we found many a round treasure chest, bearin’ the name of him that buried it there. There was tresure from Cap’n Goodyear, Cap’n Firestone, and the terrible old one-eyed Cap’n Dunlop.

Treasure lagoon
Avast! There be buried treasure about!

Not a bad day’s piratin‘ if I do say so me own self.

Yo Ho, Yo Ho!
A pirate’s life for me!
We’re beggars and blighters and ne’er do well cads!
Drink up, me hearties, Yo Ho!
Aye, but we are loved by our mommies and dads
Drink up me hearties, Yo Ho!
Yo Ho, Yo Ho,
A pirate’s life for me!

Talk Like a Pirate Day!
