Ahoy, Ye Salty Sea-Dogs. Today Be Hal'ween. Huh.

Ahoy, it's me, Cap'n Klu, the Pirate Bear. (Huh, that was a funny way to start, wasn't it?)

This morning, I was pacing the deck of my ship -- (Pirate Bears pace the deck a lot -- I'm not sure why)-- and suddenly we were attacked by a dangerous flying sea serpent. It landed on the deck with its tongue hanging out, ready to eat us all. (Actually, it was just Geraldo the Draft Dragon, and his tongue always hangs out, but we were just pretending he was dangerous.) Here's a picture of me fearlessly approaching the dangerous flying sea serpent.

I closed in on him with my sword in hand (here's a picture of me closing in on him with my sword in hand) cuz I had to protect my crew and ship. I said to him, "Avast, ye scurvy scum," cuz that's what Pirate Bears say to dangerous dragons they don't like (but I actually like Geraldo a lot -- he's my friend and he's not dangerous -- he just lies in front of our door to keep the draft out -- that's why he's a Draft Dragon.)

When he saw my raised sword, he 'pologized for attacking my ship. So I forgave him. Here's a picture of me with my raised sword.

After he 'pologized, I tamed him so I could ride on him when he was flying. Then I could be the scariest Pirate Bear on the high seas, cuz I'd be riding a dangerous flying sea serpent. Here's a picture of me riding on Geraldo.

When we were all done with the photo shoot, Big Mummy wanted a picture of the two of us together. She said we made her laugh. So here's a picture of me and Geraldo. He's my friend. I like him a lot. I'm glad it's winter and he came out again. In the summer, he just lives in his cave, but in the winter he comes out to guard our door from the dangerous drafts. Lots of exciting things happen in the winter. I like winter a lot. (I'm a bear, you know, and bears like winter.)

Cap'n Klu, Rider of the Dangerous Flying Sea Serpent and Pirate of the High Seas (Huh. Huh. That made me laugh. I never signed my blog that way before.)

PS. Happy Hal'ween.

PPS. I got tired of fighting with just one eye, so I pulled off my eye patch, but then Auntie E said I look like Aunt Jamima with a sword.
