Arrr, me maties

We like to check out CDs of kids music from the library (by which I mean, my kids like to listen to lots of kids music, and I'd rather not own lots of it...), and recently we've been listening over and over to a Disney CD of swashbuckling pirate songs. It's actually a lot of fun and makes me want to write a pirate story. What I find especially funny, though, is one very peppy, upbeat song about...how lots of pirates are dead and under the water. "All good pirates have a friend or two / down in Davy Jones' Locker..." Am I corrupting my children?

That begs a story about pirates' paradise ...

I think that's covered with the song lyrics (different song on the CD): "Treasure, yes we love it! / Treasure and plenty of mead." =)
