For I am a pirate king!

Yesterday was the Patience cast party.
It was at the Carlson’s, like last year. Let me see, I wonder if I blogged about the Pirates cast party? I’ll go check. Well, it didn’t let me look, so we may never know.
I thought I wouldn’t have any fun, because I just don’t have a lot of friends in this group, but then Anna ran over. She is a homeschooler, who doesn’t even know the names of a lot of the cast, so we hung out the rest of the time.
The last night of the show, we took a tape recorder around with us at Friendly’s and got “verbal autographs.” Well, yesterday was the return of the annoying verbal autograph people. We listened to the tape, which included two really funny stories, and began to get more people.

It was far too cold to swim. I did last year, went tubing, actually, but NO WAY not this year, even though everyonesaid it was much warmer. So I just went along for the ride, in the little boat. Anna and i would sit up front, and the wind was so strong it felt like we were going to get blown out of the boat. It was so much fun. Later Alex got on, that was fun. At one point, instead of taking the usual ten minute ride, they were out there for 45 minutes! Anna and I waited on the dock the entire time, talking with people who came and went. It was rather boring. But then we got to watch Kelsey, who is only a little bigger than me, take a wild ride on the tube. She ended up two feet in the air for seconds at a time. Very cool.
Later, Nathanael, you remember him, the sound guy for the plays, came over and said that his sister was out on the lake with another girl, and they couldn’t see them. So we went out to look for the missing canoe.
Last year, Cheri and i went out in a kayak, and couldn’t get back because of the wind. Eventually, we got some “pirates,” (some of the boys from the play pirates of penzance who were teasing us) to pull us back. Apparently the wind was bothering these girls too.
They had been canoeing for a while when they realized that they couldn’t get back! The wind blew them up on a small island, and they dragged the boat across, then started to take the long way round. We found them, and hoisted the canoe up on our boat, which already had too many people on it, to bring them back. Poor Rachel capsized the canoe only a few feet from the shore when we got back…poor girl.

Well, about then Dad came, and they let Than come on for the ride. He had a lot of fun. The ride made me think of our river…and the fact that no one has a boat for it!
Oddly enough…we got home and Dori called to say she had just got a canoe! So we canoe for an hour. And then made obstacle courses and ran aroudn like chickens with our heads cut off. We had fun.
Ok, now I have to go to church. Hope you read all of this, it took me long enough!
