yo ho, yo ho ,a pirates life for me.

Just got back from the movies... Can you guess which one? Now you know as Saltygal I"m going to take in any good sea farin tale but the main reason I went to see this wasn't Johnny Depp it was my brother Ron. He has been working on it ( and the sequel) for over a year. I wanted to see his name roll by at the end. He's not an actor,he's a craftsman, one of hundreds that work so hard to set the scene, create what isn't real and make us believe for a moment that it is. He did an awesome job, and once I got over the initial shock of seeing what he had created up on the screen, I fell into the story and found myself at sea once again.Arrggg Thanks Ron.

I've always been fascinated at the stage/scene people create, whether it is in movies or in the nature museum (where the dead animal is propped as if it's still alive in its natural habitat). I think people who can do that are extremely creative and talented. Not only you can claim you know one, you are also related to one! You must be very proud of your brother :)

How interesting. What a cool job that would be. I'm reading a book about pirates right now.
