Aye-aye, Cap’n!

Gather ’round, me hearties, and take a gander at the perfect creature for Talk Like a Pirate Day: the Aye-aye!

    I simply ADORE aye-ayes and in fact have a stuffed animal version! John Cleese says they look like a cat that’s been put in the microwave.

    Loving all the pirate themed pix and comments today but just too tired to do talk like a pirate today. SoCal actually had a thunder and lighting storm at 3 am today that totally disrupted everyone’s sleep so my brain is too foggy to make witty comments.
