  7. Sounds like a good 'un so in honour of ar little pirates I will join ye challenge.

    ps. think you change your facebook page to speak like a pirate - husband did it to me as a joke - I'll ask him how and let your know.

  8. Ok my dear one has spilled the beans on how to change your facebook language into 'Pirate'.

    Scroll down the very very very bottom of your facebook page and you should see a link to languages - mine says English (UK) but yours could be English (US) for instance. Click on that and one of the options is English (Pirate).

    have fun!!

  9. Thanks so much for filling me in on Pirate Facebook! That is too fun! I'm so glad everyone has joined on up for my challenge! I'm getting so nervous and excited at the same time!

  10. I love this challenge idea! I can't believe I heard about talk like a pirate day here before my husband mentioned it. He usually keeps me apprised of these things. We are all in the pirate spirit here as we plan and prepare for our pirate themed Halloween party next month. This is going to be so much fun! I really must get to bed, but will post about this first thing in the morning and leave you a link.

  11. Finally, got my pirate week post posted.

    I even put a link to the challenge in my sidebar!

    I'm excited about pirate week and ready for some pirate fun!
