One day while Jack was crawling through the rainforest looking for a new mast...
...he noticed Stephen lounging around in the sun on the deck.
"Stephen," he said. "Wouldn't you like to go have a little shore leave with me?"
But Stephen was huffy and sat around licking himself.
So Jack poked around the mess on the deck for awhile...
...and finally went ashore to enjoy the sun by himself.
Then Stephen got lonely and went to join him.
And they lived happily ever after.
It is still effing freezing. We took my in-laws' dog for a walk and I froze my proverbial fern off. And I don't even have a fern, proverbial or otherwise. No wonder the squirrels were looking for birdseed on my deck!
