Dear Aunty Blackbeard,
I be new at this and ask for your tolerance and patience.
I've been sailin the past 20 yrs with the same wench who has now abandoned ship. All in all, it's a good thing, though my ship is still turning to catch a clean breeze in the mainsail. I look forward to sanding the deck and clearing for battle once again. Here's hoping that the wind will blow true and the course set firm for better days...
Once granted permission to board, I look forward to exploring this community.
