The pirates ships of Treasure Island, Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grub and a ferret
Today has been wet dark and cold, it appears that the UK is slowly vanishing under water with terrible floods and the like, I had to explain to several teachers that my homework was ruined when I had to leap into a puddle to save a distressed seagull who was confused and thought he was somewhere in the middle of the North Sea. To tell the truth it is very easy to make that sort of mistake at present as there is a lot of water about and it is still raining very heavily even as I type.
Anyway with all the rain and cold and dark everyone was sulking and sailing paper boats up and down the school corridors. Treasure Island makes very good pirate ships although it needs to be one of the very very rare first editions signed by Blind Pugh from the crew who if I remember correctly were Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grub., luckily the school library had a first edition of
Island . . . . . . . Har
Har Har Har Hardy Har so my pirate ships were able to attack the fleet of the
Russian navy made from War and Piece. It was a modern edition of War and piece
so the paper was rubbish. Although Esmeralda’s U boats made from Under Milkwood
were rather difficult to destroy but luckily Freddie’s ferret thought they were
fish and ate them, leaving the pirates ships to blockade the doorway to the headmaster’s
office. However the headmaster refused to pay the ransom and made me mop the
deck (sorry I mean mop the desk).
Oooooo yes the Ghost Writer hid today saying it was too wet for IT.
And myself and my djembe colleague have been playing The Song of the Sun God in an attempt to stop the rain, so with luck in the morning it will not be raining and the sun will come out.
