Master and Commander

Just a picture and some music. I suspect with the Tall Ships coming over Memorial Day you can fill in the blanks pretty easily.

If you grew up in the middle west or anywhere away from the ocean for that matter, you probably dreamt of being a cowboy or a frontiersman; Davey Crockett, Roy Rogers or 'la Longue Carabine".  Locally it might have been Long John Silver or Captain Kidd; John Paul Jones if you were a goody-two-shoes of sorts and didn't like a pirate's patch.

Regardless, this is a swell event to think about, rigging, flags fluttering, wooden decks that clump and hulls that creak with the waves.
