Most people see them or hear of them and think “dirty”, “scoundrel”. and ill mannered.
Most people don’t look close enough.
Or listen well enough.
Or care to learn more.
So they miss out on a lot of good things.
This fellow was neither dirty, nor scoundrel acting nor ill mannered….
He was gracious, kind and funny. Thank you Pirate Man. He paid homage to my Queen self and when he went to kiss my hand, for real, I threw him for a loop when I twisted his hand in to a Pirate Grip.
Pirates are not as bad as you would think.
If they go to Renaissance Fairs.
