Arrr!

As promised, here come a couple of photos of me with the eye patch I've been wearing to facilitate computer work and reading. There's just something about this eye patch things that leads everyone to think of pirates.



Why assume that just because one has an eye out of service, you have to turn pirate? Couldn't Kevin Standlee, that stalwart space dog of the White Star Federated Spacelines, stick to his principles and continue as the firm but fair WSFS Captain, veteran of many cruises?











Oh, who are we kidding? After the Armadillo affair, Standlee couldn't get a billet with any more responsibility than sweeping up after people. Even though the board of inquiry cleared him technically, a cloud was over his career. After losing an eye in a laser duel, Captain Standlee decided if you can't beat the rep, go with the flow, and turned pirate. Arr!

My thanks to Cheryl for taking the photos (and providing the splendid pirate hat).
