The Afternoon

I apparently am a bit of a stalker especially when it comes to stalking Cruzans.

Michael said he and Terry were going to spend Christmas day on Buck Island. It’s not like I didn’t have a thrilling plan for my day so I turned on the Webcam Watcher and grabbed a cam pointed to Buck Island. I figured we could go back and watch their day later after I experienced mine. More on the Buck Island Cam later.

So I fixed a delightful Christmas breakfast and called everyone. Larry was nowhere to be found. I told Gigi and her mother that if Larry is dead then he’ll be dead forever. My breakfast however was at its peak and would rapidly decline if I didn’t eat now. I abandoned my search for Larry and ate breakfast.

It would serve him right if he stroked out. He refuses to take blood pressure meds.

Larry came stumbling up from the barn about 20 minutes later. He doesn’t appreciate the difference between good food and bad food. He covers it all with ketchup so it all tastes the same.

Then we all set out as a family and waited for Gigi’s brother to show up. We like to open presents and eat together but this doesn’t always happen in this family. By 2:06 PM we are all bored shitless with each other and I am thinking about how fun it will be to go to work tomorrow.

BIL showed up and he whips out a Polaroid camera and starts taking pictures. I didn’t know anyone had one of these anymore and I certainly didn’t think you could buy film for one.

A while earlier my MIL whipped out a cassette and asked that I play it. I told her I discarded my tape player just before the millennium and she looked at me like I was crazy.

Okay, here is my video from Buck Island. Do you guys see yourself?

It's a little hard to tell, because its an odd angle. We were pulled up on the beach at the "proposed Origami landing site", testing the waters, so to speak. But in the webcam shots it looks like we're closer to the northwestern point than it seemed while there.

We definitely recognize some of the other boats. So we extrapolated our location. I think its here:

Buck Island location?

and we're pretty sure we spotted ourselves leaving, passing behind the red SCUBA boat "Reliance". It was about quarter to four our time. Time stamp looks like 4:48 your time.

Bye Bye

Isn't it funny/strange that I can sit here and watch you and you can't see me. I need to set up a Midland Cam.

You can see me on my office cam but it's boring.

What's the url for the Buck Island cam?

You would need to set it up tp refresh.

Yeah, Wreggie, you have been laying heavy on the island talk lately. I'd really like to hear more about what pisses you off. That's always good for a laugh, my irascible friend. Merry Christmas--give Gigi a hug from me!

Reggie said...

Irascible? Damn I had to look that up and I am on my 4th glass of wine.

You see, I have been on a long journey back to the island and I am stuck in the gravitational pull awaiting my landing in 5 weeks. I am consumed.

But I can bitch about most anything.
