Week 39 - Ahoy Matey!
"Nobody more welcome than yourself, my son. Sit you down and hear the news. Here's Cap'n Flint--I calls my parrot Cap'n Flint, after the famous buccaneer--here's Cap'n Flint predicting success to our v'yage. Wasn't you, cap'n?"
And the parrot would say, with great rapidity, "Pieces of eight! Pieces of eight! Pieces of eight!" till you wondered that it was not out of breath..."
-from Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
And so ends the 2011-2012 school year, with a wave from the pirate and Cap'n Flint, the parrot.
