Yes, I will indeed take advantage of every opportunity to be corny. I may not have a lot of room on the boat for clothing, but I certainly made sure there was enough room for Halloween costumes. I've been sitting on this idea since last year, and I wasn't about to let this opportunity pass me by. Now, I'm not really one to dress my dog, but I stumbled upon this shark costume by chance at TJ Maxx right before we left the marina and well, I had to. She loves it, by the way, because whenever we put anything on her (like her life jacket), it means she's going outside. Haha, she has no idea. It's hilarious. I'm not exactly sure where we'll be, or what we'll be doing tonight, so I made everyone dress up yesterday evening so that I could have my moment. Yeah, I know. I also have already eaten all of our candy, so we're really not celebrating properly today whatsoever. But anyway, Riley had started writing this little song to the tune of "The Ballad of Gilligan's Island," and I recorded him singing it (in costume, of course). I don't have enough wifi to upload it, but I'll add it later if I get the chance. For now, here are the lyrics to "The Ballad of Winbrandt." Happy Halloween!
The Ballad of Winbrandt
Just sit right back and I'll tell you a tale, a tale of this little boat
that started on the Pamlico Sound that hardly would float,
that hardly would float.
Well, we picked her up and put her on the hard
and worked on her 'til she was new
then we splashed back in, raised our sails and headed for the Neuse,
and headed for the Neuse.
Summer's gone and Fall has come
it's time we've moved on now
we packed our bags, threw off the lines, and started heading south,
and started heading south.
We've been goin' down the waterway, until we hit Cape Fear
then we sailed out in the ocean too, and now you find us here,
and now you find us here.
To be continued...
