Jimmy taught me something on the way to Mobile. He asked me if I knew why pirates wore eye patches. I said, "because they had an eye injury?" I knew that was not the answer, or he wouldn't have asked the question.

"No," he said. "They wore patches so that when they go below in the hull of the ship, at least one eye is already adjusted to the darkness. That way they do not have to wait for their sight to adjust, and can see immediately when going below deck." Wow, my Boyfriend is smart! It does make sense. Especially in a situation where they are going below on a ship they have just taken over.

Thank goodness the sexiest pirate ever didn't wear an eye patch......
