The Pirates of Kumbaya.

Posted by admin on November 30, 2012 in Pirate Adventures

This is by far the hardest RobZerrvation I’ve tried to write. I have four different drafts in the hold, three never to see the light of day. When I was in Florida, I came upon a really strange phenomenon, one I hadn’t seen before. I can only refer to it as the Pirates of Kumbaya. […]


The Big Plan.

Posted by admin on November 28, 2012 in Pirate Adventures

A friend of mine died a couple days ago. Well, I’m not sure we were ever friends, but we were pirates together oh, so many years ago, and it’s tradition that we mark the passing or all pirates who go on account before us. Even though we didn’t always get along, I will still miss […]


The Bahamas. Like Canada But With Palm Trees.

Posted by admin on September 17, 2012 in Pirate Adventures

I was telling a friend the other day about my many adventures in the Bahamas. First, I loved going to the Bahamas when I lived in Florida. It was a quick trip across the water from where I lived. And who wouldn’t like an entirely foreign country that is 30 minutes away by air? There’s […]


This Tail Is Getting So Boring!

Posted by admin on August 31, 2012 in Pirate Adventures

I used to like mermaids. I grew up with all the folklore of them. Even Disney’s portrayal of mermaids couldn’t ruin them for me. I guess they were cool because they were relatively obscure. They were the yarns of sailors and fishermen who would be so crazed from weeks, months, and even years at sea […]


Thank God We Didn’t Invite You.

Ninety minutes to the north of us is the town of Anacortes. In my youth, I spent several summers there, my aunt and uncle running a hotel in town. They would take me boating in the San Juans and as a kid of 12 and 13, driving a boat was a pretty big adventure. We’d […]

I headed back to the ren faire this time. Oh sure, I’ve been to ren faires in Florida, including BARF. If you aren’t from Florida, you probably thought that was a commentary on the fair itself. No, it stands for Bay Area Renaissance Fair. I’m not really the rennie type, mind you. I never have […]


Lost Boy.

Posted by admin on August 6, 2012 in Pirate Adventures

I have always loved the Peter Pan story. A boy who never wants to grow up, who falls for a pretty girl, ends up fighting pirates and in the end, has to choose between remaining a boy or becoming a man. Well, we all know which one I picked. Sure, there have been times when […]


The Seattle Seafair Crowd Wavers.

Posted by admin on July 18, 2012 in Pirate Adventures

The world of piracy in Seattle is not as I once knew it. It seems that the Seafair Pirates have gone soft. They don’t even seem to know how to act like pirates these days, being stripped to their skivvies of all the things that makes pirootin’ fun. I recently discovered that in they no […]


On Alki Beach We Landed (Not)!

Posted by admin on July 10, 2012 in Pirate Adventures

The Seafair Pirates landed on Alki this weekend, just as they always do. Well, that’s not quite true. There was a time when they were banished from the beach, largely because of my mutinous ways. It all started because the Seafair Pirates weren’t on the highly favored list of West Seattle Hi-Yu President Diane Schutt. […]


I’m Dying For Italian Food.

Posted by admin on June 25, 2012 in Pirate Adventures

Returning to Seattle, I have noticed that a few things have changed. Not surprising, given that many years have passed since I last called the Emerald City home. Perhaps the most surprising, however, is that Mark Christopher is hosting all these specials on Channel 9. Mark and I go way back. We were pirates together […]
