Personal Note of Sailor Gil:  My profile photo was taken on this ship while I was standing at the ship’s wheel in 1967 when I was a 20 year old,  ”newly minted”, US Navy Sailor.

Mermaids & Sailors

To all of my many new followers, here is the link to my archives, if you should like to peruse them:   http://sailorgil.tumblr.com/archive

Sailors & Mermaids

….. OR Mermaids & Sailors …. They go well together, no matter in which order I place them. These are two of my favorite subjects that I pursue in Art, Literature, Film, Music, Antiques & Collectibles and the Decorative Arts. I will be sharing things here from my collections and other items from the internet that I find appealing to me. 
….. I also enjoy all things related to the “Seven Seas”, which, of course is the domain of both, Mermaids and Sailors. This may include oceans, islands, ports & harbors, beaches, sea creatures, and classic sailing ships, to name a few. 
….. So, relax and enjoy the sometimes wild, but always wet, world of Mermaids & Sailors !!

" Yankee Pasha: The Adventures of Jason Starbuck "  …  An adventure novel by Edison Marshall; first published in 1947 and turned into a movie, starring Jeff Chandler and Rhonda Fleming, in 1954.

Personal Note:  I first read this novel when I was about 12 years old and being at a very impressionable age, I was “hooked” with this adventure story, set in 1800 — the quest of the main character’s crossing the seas, via sailing ship, to find his ‘golden fleece’;  i.e, the beautiful blonde, Roxana, on the dustjacket.   As a result, I developed a life-long love of the sea and ships and all things nautically related.  That was more than 50 years ago!  I did actually find my ‘golden fleece’ across the seas (compliments of the US Navy);  however, she had black hair, instead of gold, and I had to sail across the Pacific to Japan, in 1967, in order to find her !!
