Charlie's Birthday and Emaline, the Pirate

     It's time once again for a new post, again concerning Emaline (the pirate).
    Yesterday was the birthday of Emaline's sister, Charlie.   Happy Birthday beautiful.  I'd like to say something... but all that comes to mind is that you really are a six-foot black man at heart.
     Anyway, this day consisted of church, a lunch fellowship, cards of course, (Charlie never goes a Sunday without playing cards) and the boys including Duke (sorry, I couldn't think of any other name to give you) playing that abhorrent sport they call football.  My mother sat watching with Charlie's mother, expressing fears that someone was going to "rupture a spleen", while I was tying a stick to Emaline's leg.  Yes, you read correctly.  I was tying a stick to Emaline's leg.  You see Emaline stuffed the bottom of her pant legs into her socks and was thrilled with how piratey it looked.  So of course she went searching for a peg leg to finish her pirateyness (There is no way that's an actual word...).  So we found a good stick and a bunch of rope, and that is why I was tying a stick to Emaline's leg.  I have the most eccentric friends...
