Captain Squid

Take a deep breath, as I tell our refrigerator story. When MicMac was hauled out for three weeks to have her bottom painted, prior to our departure, Captain Pete turned off the refrigerator, forgetting that we had some squid fish bait in the freezer section. Do you know how long “perfum de squid” fragrance can last in a refrigerator? We’ve scrubbed it with baking soda, bleach, vinegar, enzymes, and even tried vanilla in a dish. I expect gulls to circle overhead every time I open the frig.

Captain Kidd was legendary for his reign of terror, but Captain Squid (AKA Captain Pete) will also go down in history as a menace to humanity.
