Good News!!

You may remember when Magpie and I told you over on that other blog about the 7 foot tall, 300 pound Captain Morgan statue that turned up missing on September 9th from a local West Valley watering hole.

I am happy to bring you news that the statue has been returned! It’s still a mystery who took it and how it found it’s way back, but about 6:30 a.m. on Sept. 29, a friend called bar owner Roman Comer when he saw the statue sitting in front of the bar door, clothed in a black T-shirt.

I happened to be driving by there yesterday (honest!) and thought I would stop and welcome the Captain back, but they must still be waiting for someone (or something) to put him back in his high place of honor on the rooftop. Until then somebody’s got it covered….
Got a little chocolate in you?

How in the world did they get up on top of the building & steal a 300lb. statue? My LORD! They were DETERMINED as all get out to get Capt. Morgan for their very own! Mr Blue M&M just isn't the same, so they need to get 'The Captain' put back in place!!! Jeez

Not big on Rum myself but that little Blue guy is looking pretty good to me right now.

I always knew M&Ms were indispensable. By the way your "what would your life look like in a snapshot" question is quite provacative. I'm still pondering this.

Ha ha too funny.

I am glad someone decided to return the Captain. MB

So glad the Captain has been returned! I'm thinking it was a prank for the annual "Talk Like a Pirate Day" on September 19th.

So somebody finally did the right thing. Makes my heart proud! Welcome home, Captain!

From what I read, Roman is having the Captain refurbished. Got to get him looking good for his return. I also heard he will be taking extra measures to be sure the Captain stays safe.
