ahoy mate

In my childhood. We used our imagination to be anything we want.Little boys loved to sail their boats . Some were homemade of paper or wood or store bought. After a rain they would  find a puddle to sail them.The paper ones they could pretend. My little sailor wants to be a captain of his ship.

He is getting ready to sail the 7 seas.His crew is ready . The ship is loaded. He has invited the crew for their last dinner on land until they return home.

I used  tea towels for napkins and light house napkin rings. Big men needed big napkins.

We are not all Irish but Mulligan stew seems like a good choice.



A glass of root beer would be the drink for the day as they have a long trip ahead.


Blue tablecloth the color of the sea.Red plates for color.

A cup of cocoa  heavy with cream for the crew.

When he grows up he wants to be captain of his own ship.

Getting ready to set sail.

The gulls flying waiting to see them off.
It's a long journey Their belly's full.Off to the 7 seas.
