Happy Talk like a Pirate Day! Arr!

Aye Matey's, it be that little known but much loved celebration of those who look on the world with avarice in their eyes. (or eye, as the case may be)

Here's a bit 'o Pirate cheer for ye!

This be the Pyrates Royale, from the Merry-land Renaissance Festival, and most jolie troop of scalawags.

"It's all part of being a Pirate! (a pirate, a pirate!)You can't be a Pirate, with all of your parts."

Airport rules

This past weekend we flew to Sacramento Airport in CA for a family wedding. When we stopped in the restroom I found this on the wall.

If you can't read it, the sign says "Property of Airport, do not remove." As you can see, it's attached to a tile wall, with nothing around it but more tile, and a sink, so what exactly are we not supposed to be removing? The sink? the tile? Perhaps the 6'x12' mirror behind the sink?

There are no holes above the sign, (I looked, in case something WAS there, but had been callously removed despite the very clear sign) Zip, Zilch, Nada. Unless there was something invisible, (perhaps some new stealth towel dispensor technology being tested) I have to assume tile theft has gone to new and desperate highs in Sacramento.
