Knowing he needs help from the boats to find his treasure Pendelton practices being a polite parrot. Meanwhile, the boats practice talking like a pirate to talk with the parrot. Hello everyone!  Today we have a bonus episode! For a little fun on Talk like a Pirate Day we have a new story. We hope you enjoy “Polite Parrot!” Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 7:03 Narrator: Male Polite Parrot Excerpt: As the sailboat wondered where Zig-Zag had gone she spotted a bright red bird zig-zagging her way. She smiled and announced to the others in her best pirate voice. “Be ye ready? I spy a scurvy pirate bird on the wind.” Manny the motorboat followed her gaze to the red bird. Sure enough, there were blue and yellow feathers on the bird’s wings and a tell-tale patch of black feathers over one eye. Manny responded eagerly in his best pirate voice.  “Aye! Zig Zag be returning to seek out the lost pirate booty.” Sandy the sailboat had been teaching all the boats how to speak Pirate ever since Zig-Zag’s last arrival. She giggled as the pirate bird grew closer and asked, “Yarrrr me hearties. Is everyone shipshape and ready for an adventure?” “Shiver me Timbers.” Teagan the tugboat said. “Be Zig-Zag returning this day?” Almost in response the pirate parrot landed on Sandy’s bow and said, “Good morning, fine yacht. Would you be able to assist me in the search for my treasure?” The boats sat silently, surprised at how the pirate parrot’s manners had changed.
