    I guess he can’t just buy something off the peg.

    I guess the ol’ captain is pining fir the next leg of his journey….

    But of course, the old joke is about the guy who goes in there to buy one for his watch.(Yes, I pirated that.)And Varnes… yeah, the shop owner must be so dyslexic she painted it backwards on the outside window.

    Forgive me for this one, but am I the only one who wishes the clerk had a name tag saying ‘Rose’? (Cue Music) Everyone knows that I’m just Second Hand Rose, from Second Avenue, nu? (end music) It’s an old Fanny Brice tune that Streisand revived in the 1960’s.

    I think the window was for OUR convenience only. And very thoughtful, I might add [;-)

    Kids are all excited about imagining they could be pirates. They should go to a VA Medical center and see what it is like to have a foot missing, or a hand missing, or half a face missing.

    If you can’t buy a second hand, you might rent one…you know, a hired hand?
