Our first visit to Pioneer Kindy this week were steeped in controversy.

When the Captain returned to camp after the show he set about preparing fer the next days pillage. In straightening up the black chest he found a pair of stowaways.

In true Pirate style the Captain sought to identify the origins of the stowaways. He knew he had not put them in the chest hisself.

Being a Pirate in the 21st century he then resorted to social media, posting a photo of the controversial couple and innocently asking if anyone knew anything about them.

The resulting social media meltdown had far ranging side-effects.

Before the post regarding the cats Pirate Pete happily went about the supermarkets in town anonymously gathering supplies. Following the post – security now give him a guided tour of all the aisles and  the supermarkets sophisticated CCTV is programmed  to follow the Captains every movement while in the shop or within 50 metres of the front door.

Tuesday morning things weren’t so politically awry when Pirate Pete visited Mackay Kindergarten  followed by Lady Gowrie Bucasia Kindergarten.
