160. BLIMEY IT'S A LIMEY Something for pirates from every port, a CT gathering, Sept. 16, 2006.

When we heard that pirates were coming to CT for a gathering in September 2006, we thought that we'd better leave them out something to eat, so that they wouldn't pillage too far into the village! But what they might want to eat after all that hardtack and jerky on their long circuitous journeys eluded us for awhile, until finally we remembered Pete's old chili recipe.

The last time Pete had prepared his infamous chili recipe was several years ago, after the Psychokiwis of New Zealand had come to visit us in RI and brought over their recipe for vegetarian chili. Pete's recipe called for meat and chocolate, so at first we were thinking that pirates might enjoy sinking their teeth into it. Then, however, we rethought our position about leaving them anything too spicy, and decided we'd better leave them something they could use along their future journeys - namely a little lime to prevent scurvy.

So, in order for pirates (or any other interested parties for that matter) to get that little lime, they might like to do what Pete did when we were first playing around with the idea of putting it out there for them. Pete found what he still claims is the high point of the area (about 130 feet if you look at a topo map), but only if you climb on top of the huge glacial erratic there, for the surrounding land is just a tad lower than that just to the west.

Anyway, pretending that he was King Neptune atop the prow of his massive stony ship, Pete imagined himself grabbing a mighty trident just to the west and turning it upside down to spear two stony fish one on each side of his trident! If you have a good imagination and can put yourself into this same position (no climbing necessary), you might just spear yourself a little tiny lime under that small stone fish on the northwest side of that huge rocky ship! Hope you don't get scurvy or fall into the brine - just find the lime and have a good time!
