Pirate Skool.

Posted by admin on July 10, 2017 in Pirate Adventures

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!

Posted by admin on June 24, 2013 in Pirate Adventures

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,” […]


A Pirate’s Life.

Posted by admin on January 28, 2013 in Pirate Adventures

There was a time oh, so many years ago when pirates were few and far between. In fact, there were only two groups of pirates we ever knew of in the 1980s – the Seafair Pirates and the pirate crewes of Gasparilla who had their annual festival in Tampa, but as far as we knew, didn’t […]


Rum Runners.

Posted by admin on December 11, 2012 in Pirate Adventures

A week or so ago, I heard that a fellow pirate had passed away. It seems to be happening with greater frequency. Though I have tried to fill my life with people younger than I to stem the tide of the dying, there are some who have slipped through the cracks anyway. Butch and I […]


In The Den Of Antiquity.

Posted by admin on December 3, 2012 in Pirate Adventures, Romance

Jimmy Buffett once sang, “The days drift by, they don’t have names.” I only think of this now that I posted a photo I’ve always liked of me and came to the conclusion that it was taken exactly 27 years ago when I was 27. That seems such a long time ago, and yet, it […]
