A good lesson indeed.

In my youth (for me, that is from birth to age 55), I used to assume everyone was just like me. Since the only experience I had ever had as a person was as me, how was I supposed to think otherwise? This, of course, caused issues in my life. I think the fact that […]

Rrrrrrrrr, Rrrrrrrrr.

It’s hydro season again. Sadly, the sport ain’t quite what it used to be. The races, which used to draw 250,000 people to the shores of Lake Washington, is having difficulties finding a footing in this age of 2,345 cable channels and social media. It used to be huge in Seattle. Long before there were […]

The Zzaj Singer.

I often wonder what normal people do with their weekends. Some of my friends display their lovingly restored rides at car shows, others go boating, still others have family picnics or hike to the top of mountains just to see what there is to see. Me? I go pirating. When I was still in the […]

Pirate Skool.

My last RobZerrvation reminded me of an exercise Krimson Kat and I did a few months ago. We were having a little toddy when the subject came up about what kind of advice I would give to a pirate or wench who is new to the craft. Obviously, I know nothing about being a wench, so […]

Yes, I Am A Pirate.

Posted by admin on July 3, 2017 in Pirate Adventures |

I’ve just returned from another weekend of pirating. No matter where I am, I have a great time doing it, largely because, well, I have a bit of a history. For those that know that history, then you know why I’m a bit different than most pirates. I don’t come from a faire background. I […]

What A Gimmick!

Posted by admin on July 18, 2016 in Pirate Adventures |

My life is one gimmick after another. I don’t mean this in the negative sense of the word. I’m not talking about “a devious aspect or feature offered up so that you’ll purchase something.” No, I’m talking about the more classic form of gimmick: “a novel or ingenious device, something that is supposed to attract attention.” […]

Four Little Pirates.

Posted by admin on April 13, 2015 in Pirate Adventures |

Given recent events in the pirate world, I thought I would share this little parable. It’s about four little pirates – one, a complete bully, the second, a former friend of the bully, the third, a cousin, and a fourth, a pirate who desperately wanted to be like the bully, but didn’t have it in […]

Button, Button, Who’s Got The…

Posted by admin on January 5, 2015 in Pirate Adventures |

I take pause on occasion to reflect on some of the things I’ve done. When I do, it both amazes me and astounds me, for I have found myself in some unusual situations, ones that I would have never thought up on my own, largely because they were either ill-advised or just plain stupid. I […]

A Tale Of Two Cities.

Posted by admin on July 21, 2014 in Pirate Adventures |

I wrote a RobZerrvation some time ago entitled “I-I-I Don’t Love A Parade.” I thought this was true, largely because I’ve done more than 300 over the years and believed that they have absolutely no entertainment value, either for the audience or myself. Well, surprise, surprise, I was wrong – again! It’s not that I […]

I’d Miss It All Like Hell!

Most of you have probably never heard of Cicely Fox Smith. Born in the late 1880s in England, she was a prolific poet and later, author. Her claim to fame is poems of a nautical nature, so well crafted that critics often mistook her for a sailor, referring to C. Fox Smith as a “he,” […]
