Presaged Pussycat Psalutations, GN!

Learned just last night that there were Joooos in Jamaica beginning in the 16th Century, including some pirates! They mostly went after Spanish and Portuguese ships under the guise of payback for the Inquisition.

One of the pirates was named Moses Cohen Enriques, which I find quite amusing. He’s known for capturing a fleet in 1628 which was carrying about $1B (in today’s currency) in gold and silver bullion.

One of my cousins and I texted back and forth riffing on the above and concurred that Disney needs to revamp Pirates of the Caribbean again. Also:

“Hoist the Jolly Magen David!”

“Polly want a matzoh!”

“Heave to, ye scurvy schmendriks!”

Cuz also pointed out that, in addition to everything else, we can now be blamed for piracy, too.

Arrr vey iz mir.

Niece left in the late morning yesterday. I didn’t make breakfast. She wanted to try the Coffee Pot Restaurant. It’s a great breakfast place, for sure. And making Breakfast would have been a lot of work, but I would have enjoyed it, anyway.

Personally, I’ve been craving Bacon and Eggs and other Breakfast stuff.

maybe I’ll make some today.

A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and dv8 (and Harper!).

I wonder, did the Orthodox pirates need shabbos goyim? Or did they just let the ship drift on the Sabbath?

Leave it to Paddy to suggest a serious theological question : )

Kind of hard to imagine an Orthodox pirate, TBH. No earrings, for one thing…unless they were clip-ons. And salt pork would have been a no-no.

But if there were any, they’d have had shabbos swabbies (aka goyische gobs), I think.

Isn’t that why they invented gefilte fish?

“Sorry, Captain. The cedar planks are all being used for tonight’s salmon.”

Good afternoon -- that cat’s legs in the thread pic appear to be on backwards.

Our friend isn’t doing well -- he got pneumonia in the nursing home and was transferred to another hospital where he’s unresponsive. The hospital wants him moved to some type of hospice care.

So I guess hospital policy is if you are going to die, do it somewhere else.

I’m so sorry to hear that about your friend, Sven. After all we’ve learned about the medical profession from the COVID mess, it’s hard to hold them in high regard.

Thanks, Paddy and Fatwa -- we went to the hospital this afternoon. Another stupid rule -- only one person a day can visit -- not one at a time -- one a day. Anyhow, I went up and sat wtih him for a little bit. He was asleep or unconscious, but I prayed and visited. Said good-bye, altho if anyone can come back from this it’s this guy.

His sister called and said they are transferring him tomorrow to someplace where he can receive hospice care.

Stupid on my part, walking down the stairs to the parking garage, I missed the last step and fell. My neck is a mess.

Oh, no! Advil, naproxen sodium, topical heat creams, etc. I hope it’s not too bad!

Very saddened to read this, Sven.

And what Paddy said re the medical profession.

I hope your friend can be kept comfortable and can rest easy without suffering.

If I stay up for a while longer, I’ll be good to go on Monday night, But I’ll say my goonights now (unless I find I’m back later… one never knows.)
