Hi! My name is Pirate Pearl Welcomed Home to BC Marina

I am a Timneh African Grey from New Church, VA.

Garrrr....Salty Sea Dog, ye swine!

2 years old   M

Timneh African Grey

Grub

Ye old Crow's Nest, the galley, treasure spot!

RULES:

Pirates Must Swear Allegiance to Captain, Ship, & Crew Mates

Ye shall never pull a weapon on a crew member.

Ye shall not eat another crew mates share of food nor drink his water, ale, grog, meed, etc.

Ye shall not steal from yer crew mates.

Should a dispute arise, ye shall go to your 1st Mate to parley. If a decision cannot meet the satisfaction of both parties, it will be brought before the Captain & QuarterMaster.

If any of these rules are broken, the offending pirate will be housed in the brig until the nearest port can be found to be sent home.


The Sea Is A Hard Mistress! Arrrrr!

Limps with a peg leg, swallows shamelessly rum & ale, attracted to shiny objects like....GOLD & JEWELS!.

Yo Ho Ho & A Bottle Of Rum! Garrrrrrr.....

  Sophie and the Flock
stop by to check out the Pearl.
We thank ye, Captain, for the certificates and treasure. It was a very fine adventure that will not be forgotten.
*Sophie poses her flock around like tourists and snaps some pictures. Then she has Oatie take some. Sam walks up behind Ipo, Sophie and JJ and spreads his wings around them. Oatie catches the surprised looks and then gets one of them all with big smiles.
Ipo waves Oatie to come over. She carries a small treasure chest and hands it over to Sam. He checks out the little box and opens it then laughs as he flips the lid wide. Inside are different kinds of cookies and nuts.* It be just a wee treasure to let ye know the joy we have aboard the Pirate Pearl", Ipo and Jack Jack chime. "We better be headin out to check on our mom. Don't want her to be out in the sun all alone now do we? hahaha. Enjoy your treasure."

  Good morning Mister Sam!
Thank you so much for my BOTD surprise! I had lots and lots of fun exploring the castle and causing trouble with the little racing piggies! heheh!

I have been having so much fun here at my new home. Did you know that I've only been here for a week and one day? Mother and I both agree that it feels as if I've been here for forever. Mother's training is going very well. She's quickly learning to pick up my poops quickly or else I'll go back later when they're dry and try to eat them - hehe! She had to pull one right out of my mouth the other day.

She's also learning to never stop watching me when I'm out, even for a second! I love climbing the curtains and getting into all sorts of mischief, like biting her earrings or trying to tangle my tootsies in her hair. Hehehe! I have been good sometimes though! I have recently started eating apple and learned that I love it. Besides peanuts, it's the only food other than pellets that I'll try though. Mother hasn't given up though!

Yesterday, Mother tried to trim my nails, because they are quite long. I'm a bit clumsy because of them. Mother has been training me through the week to be comfortable with her hand around my entire body, so I took to that quite well. But when HER mother came over with those clipper things, I changed my mind on the whole situation. A few hard bites to Mother's hand, some screaming and wasted minutes later, they got one nail clipped (:

Thanks again for my BOTD the other day! I think I'll go back to playing on my cage top now. Hopefully I'll come back and talk to you all again soon!

Until then,

Miss Daisy ♥

Come visit me, Daisy ♥ & Spirit Cloude ♥.

  Hi Captain SamIAm,
thanks so much for the certificates and for the treasures...we did pretty good this time didn't we?

The Milonga was lots of fun and I heard that the scruffy birds got into quite a mess in the tub of jello...lol

I would love to have the special certificate with my sweet Angel Chi chi...and I know Chloe would like the one with Giz...thanks so much, we really appreciate that you thought of us...

We have been having some beautiful spring weather here lately. The gardeners were by on Thursday to cut the grass as it had grown quite a bit. It was really nice today with the sun shining but it was pretty windy again so mom couldn't sit outside but it was nice in the sunroom...
Dad is not able to eat anything today as he is doing the prep for his colonoscopy tomorrow morning, mom is keeping him company and not eating anything either but she is still drinking her coffee lol
Almost time for his second round of that yummy drink...another 1/2 gallon...glad it is not me...

Captain Sam wonders if Captain Ophelia's human got away and made the map to return for them. Sam quits this line of thought as he turns the Pirate Pearl toward her homeport.
While the Captain is up top the crew of comms is watching sonar and radar readings. We come topside and Casey unties our Captain. We are all happy to be back to our own time. And we look forward to the party tonight. It has been a fantastic adventure and we thank Captain Sam very much.
When we dock, Captain Ophelia and some other osprey come to join our celebration. Captain Sam tells Captain Ophelia his thoughts about perhaps her human made it through the wormhole and made the map in hopes to make it back for his birds. Then he tells her about repaying debts in Costa Rica where he got the map and wonders if she would like to join him and Miss Miranda as they go there then she could talk to the ospreys there. She says she would like that very much. Then Captain Sam asks if they would like to have a mug or two of rum. They gladly agree and join us to enjoy the food Chef Scion and his crew has prepared as well.

Thank you again Captain Sam for the adventure.

Captain calls, "BOW CANNONS FIRE!" The monkey cannons that have been locked into place burst their blazing answer. They rip apart the ship splintering the wood in the middle. Captain Sam calls hard starboard! The Pirate Pearl sails away from the wreckage of the three burning ships.
Turning to take on the other enemy ships, we see that Albatross Air is the way back leaving five smoking ships. The ospreys have not been slouching in the battle but have overflown the enemy and they strike with thunderous talon and beak warfare. Most of the ships are turning tail and running. Before they escape with any captives the ospreys board and release all the captives and rescued many of their kind. And with the help of the albatross they have flown them to their own ships and medical aid. The albatross signals his good bye and we all wave our thanks and good byes as well.
Captain Sam calls for us to stop to load and store the speedboat. Kallie comes racing back from the osprey convoy with a rooster tail spraying high behind her. When she and Mr. Tooth come to the Captain we all congratulate them and give them cheers. Chief Cookie comes up to congratulate us all. Then goes to Captain Sam telling him the wormhole is about to open. "All unnecessary crew batten down the hatches for another bumpy ride. Casey, come tether your Captain to the wheel mount." We all go below reluctant to leave our Captain alone. The osprey messenger comes and sees the Captain tethered and asks if it'll be THAT bad? Captain Sam says, "You never know. Maybe a storm or even a hurricane or maybe fog or sunshine. Best to be prepared." The messenger flies back to his ship and prepares for the trip through the wormhole. The sky did as it did before. The Angel Guide take their places. The rip opens wider and the Pearl leads the convoy in. There are no lashing rains ripping at his feathers this time. The wind is just right to keep the convoy moving forward and the water looks golden. There are no stars above and no sounds. Captain Sam looks forward and keeps steering forward. A rip appears and a bright light unzips the rip and keeps growing. Soon it's large enough to let the convoy to pass through all at one time. When the Pirate Pearl goes through, Captain Sam feels the wind on his face, hears sea gulls and smells the sea air. He wonders where we are when he sees a large freighter in line for the Panama Canal heading for the Pacific Ocean.
Sam heads for the Bird Channel Castle to moor the Pirate Pearl. He has the ospreys to come with us because no more ships will be needed and they need to learn how to be regular ospreys.
Captain Sam wonders if Captain Ophelia's human got away and made the map to return for them. Sam quits this line of thought as he turns the Pirate Pearl toward her home port.

The osprey messenger is returning at the same time and lands gracefully on the gunwale railing before jumping to the deck. Captain Sam tells Teal'C and Captain Darling to "throw the pillows NOW!" The albatross slides hitting the pillows and slides against the stern's wall.
First Mate Polly runs up and puts some things in the basket telling him Mr. Tooth said he'd know what to do with them. Captain Sam tells Peppino to bring some water in a canteen for the large bird. After taking a deep drink and thanking them, he starts running to take off. Captain Sam wonders aloud, "I don't see how they can be so clumsy on land and yet so skillful in the air."
Captain Sam tells Napoleon that it's time to engage the enemy ships. He makes sure the monkey cannons are secured and Kiddo and Sweetpepper have their shoulder launchers ready.
The Pirate Pearl makes way to intercept the enemy. To distract the lead ship, Chief Jenny Lynn shoots one of her large artillery guns across the bow. Coxwain Kallie and Mr. Tooth stay close to the pearl ready for the signal to strike. The enemy are surprised at our speed. Kallie and Mr. Tooth takes on two ships that are behind the one the Pearl invited. They go between the two ships and launch off their model boats and toss grenades to the decks. The explosion causes the mast of one of the ships to fall and causes the sails of the two ships start on fire. Mr. Tooth drives the boats into the ships depositing their explosive loads causing the ships to begin to sink from the holes in their sides. The Captain announces it's time to get ready for battle. "First Mate Polly, get in yer position to send that killick out as far as ye can throw it!" She begins to twirl the killick in large circles and begins to go faster. With Gunners Pearl and Doo keeping up their firing Captain Sam tells Polly to throw it port! She lets it fly and up it goes then hits the water. The cable becomes very taut. It yanks hard on the Pearl and pulls her hard to port. The Pearl creaks and moans under the weight of reversing directions. Captain Sam yells, "HOLD ON! GUNNERS BE ON THE READY! AT MY SAY, GUNNERS! HERE SHE COMES!" Those from the crows nest make it safely down and find safe place to hold on tightly.
Mr. Ziggy yells out, "FIRE AT WILL!" The cannons sound out with a vengeance at the enemy ship hitting it nearly point blank. Captain Sam again yells, "NOW, NAPPY! HIT THE THROTTLE!" Helmsbird Napoleon pushes the throttle and forces the pearl to make almost a full circle. "CUT THE ROPE, POLLY!" First Mate Polly takes her cutlass and chops the line in two with one stroke. The Pearl is now at the stern of the enemy ship and the Captain calls, "BOW CANNONS FIRE!" The monkey cannons that have been locked into place burst the

  The Chronicles of the Pirate Pearl--2014
March 20--Helmsbird Napoleon leads the osprey convoy through the north canal. We all hope thos who have branched off are having safe passage. Again we all hope no birds were left back on the island.
Captain Sam tells First Mate Polly that we cannot send out searchers because the wormhole waits for nobird. As we break through to ocean waters we all take a deep breath. Captain Sam gives the coordinates to Napoleon. The winds are up and sailing is good and we put some distance between us and the island. Captain Ophelia sends a message to Captain Sam that all sixteen ships are cleared of the canal. The Messenger says he has been assigned to The Pirate Pearl.
After about two hours we hear Hulk call out, "Ships on the eastern horizon, Sir!" A few moments later Pirate Peepers calls out, "Ships come from the west, Sir!" Captain Sam tells us we have about 30 minutes before they are within range. Chirf Cannoneer Zippy is to prepare the cannons. First Mate, Chief of Security and Quarter Master are called to report to Captain Sam. "We need to protect the ospreys. So I will send a message to Captain Ophelia to get the ships in groups of four. It will be easier to protect than if they are strung out a mile. Coxwain Kallie will be driving the speed boat and Mr. Tooth will release the little surprises to the enemy ships. Chief Jenny Lynn and her crew will provide cover for then as well.
The crew gets the Pirate Pearl ready for another battle. Captain Sam tells Helmsbird Napoleon, "Nappy, we're gonna be running the protection of the ospreys. We will use our speed and the speedboat." He goes on to tell about the weakness of the ships and also about a "slingshot" method to get behind a ship. Also that it could be used over again. Captain Sam tells there is a small anchor called a killick. Basically it is a stone in a wooden frame and when the ship gets a good clip it is thrown either port or starboard like an emergency break of a car. Whichever side it is thrown from, the ship will swing in a large arc. Then we fire our broadside cannon. He goes on to say the monkey cannons will be mounted on each side of the bow.
Captain Sam looks through his spyglass and announces Albatross Airline took out a ship. Kiddo watches through the binoculars and yells, "SWEEEETTT!" Raffi comes topside to help defend the Pearl.
Jenny Lynn is pleased with all the modern firepower, like her 155 Howitzer. And that rock thingy sounds like a good idea too. The remote controlled explosive laden toy boats are a clever addition as well.
Dr. BB is told about the Captain's plans and she tells Dr. Sky and Nurse CuBird they need to prepare the sickbay for rough going. Dr. BB doesn't want to ruin the adventure by telling the Captain that the shuttle could take care of the Squawkatiels easily and open it's own wormhole. Yes, that would ruin the adventure.
We slow to allow the osprey ships to get closer and Captain Sam checks the compass and his watch. We are doing well so far. He looks up

  The Chronicles of the Pirate Pearl--2014
March 19--After this battle and the three apprentices are safe and back to their duties, Jack Jack is under my wing since we are not allowing him on the sails yet. We come past the two destroyed towers and as we clear the lagoon we enjoy the beauty of the open ocean. Then back to work. We finally get the last of the Squawkatiels off the ship and wishing we never have to be seeing them again, but sadly knowing we will have to face them again. We are certainly happy the Stark Flock are here. They have been a blessing this last battle and will be again soon we fear. Captain Sam has assigned them to be on the cannons and Moggie and Teal'C as powder monkeys. Although Captain Sam has told what is expected, Falco and Ipo give detailed instructions to the powder monkeys and Chief Cannoneer, Mr. Ziggy give details to Elvis, Doo Dilligence, Cookie, Blue and Joshua Chico. Quarter Master Tooth and the albatross begin their takeoff. The crew move to the sides in order to give the six foot wingspan. We all worry the deck won't be long enough for the albatross to get air, but we need not have worried as Mr. Tooth and the albatross circle the ship before taking the packages to those ships invading the main port.
Captain Sam does remind us this is only one battle we have won over the Squawkatiels and there will be more to come.
