Usually relatives of gods are also gods, or at least they are demigods.

hey *new*guy - good hearing from ya again. might you be able to join us some day?? the beer festival isn't till june.

oh, and i was thinking perhaps the going away drinkey fest could maybe be on sat april 29? one idea suggested was everyone brings a 6 pack and we ride from park to park and sight to sight, drinking one at each stop? there were other ideas too... c'mon yall. i'm not planning this one- i have my bday to worry about! though i'd like tink to bring out his boccee ball set. that would be fun too.

and, my bday is on april 26. i'm thinking of something that involves margaritas and trivial pursuit. or perhaps those are two separate nights. last year for my bday we did a margarita tour of dc (which is totally different than the tri-state margarita rally, you'll note. i'm not about to leave the district on MY birthday!) it involved about 8 margarita stops. it was, well, tangy.

finally, i heard someone call out "hey julie" on haines point this lunch hour. i turn around and there's DC EMily pulling a pack of like 50 racer guys. Hot damn, she's fast! And she has the awesomest little red skirt to match her NCVC jersey. Rock.

Hey I will definitely get out to see you off... no drinking for me, but I can gladly cheer you on and encourage consumption of shots and various other beverages. As for DC Em, she's very strong and is going to be winning races very soon. Mark my words.

As much as we are all sorry to see Julie leaving us, and as much as we value her input as a founding member of the pirates, the rest of us will be remaining in the area.
Spuds email seemed to suggest the end of an era.
That would be silly...

Though Jonny5 is leaving, Tink is going to be busy with Daddiness and...who else?

On the contrary, this is only the beginning.

29th is penciled in.

I'm guessing there was low turn-out last night? Sorry,worked 'til 9 and felt like crap.

Shame to lose older Pirates,but we're attracting new ones,so pillaging will go on!

Since I don't speak, read or write Swedish, I don't know if that's misspelled.
