Mr. Furly: Ahoy!

It's been a long time since we revisited the adventures of Mr. Furly. As you can see, my friends, he had an adventure on the high seas, and had to disguise himself as a Pirate! Way back when I was in Bristol, Mr. Furly left the hotel one day and was exploring the lovely dockside (he hates hotels - there's been past incidents with maid "service"). Much to his surprise, he was taken aboard a local Pirate ship and taken out to sea. He couldn't write. He couldn't call. I anxiously awaited contact.

If there's one thing Mr. Furly has learned through his adventures, however, it's "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!" Seeing that the only way to avoid the wrath of these nasty Pirates was to disguise himself among them, he crafted himself a costume from scraps around the ship, and was able to travel without further incident. He assures me he did not get into any of the the "normal" nasty behaviour of Pirates, and was even, on occassion, able to comfort innocent people.

At Christmas, when he met me in New York, I was happy and relieved to see him. Though he could not reveal the identity of his fellow Pirates, he was happy to show me photos of his rather impressive ship. Can you find him in the photo below? (click to enlarge)

Now that he's been home for a few months, he's been looking into Summer jobs. Just small ones that he can take over for a few weeks at a time. Jobs with a lot less risk (for a change). Any ideas for him?
