Buddy’s great great grandpappy was a nefarious pirate, a total bad guy.
Well, ok, maybe not. To be honest, Buddy is not sure. He likes to make up odious stories to add some dark overtones to the old, torn picture of his great great grandfather, which is now prominently hung at the Orr Oasis, his and Jennifer’s home bar in Las Vegas.

Buddy liked the frame, but planned to rip out the picture.
