I went out last with a few colleagues from work last Friday evening. There ended up being a group of us from various companies. One person I met was just about to fly to Hawaii and return on a sail boat. Interesting adventure, I thought. I asked if it were a planned trip or adventure trip. He said his friend had a boat that was returning from Hawaii (the sailing vessel Valis to be correct). He was going along for the ride. I thought it would be funny and interesting to enlist GB jr (my wee teddy bear–yes, I have teddy bears and I’m not embarrassed to admit it. Because there is also a story behind the bears!!) go along for an adventure.
I think John (the real crewman) is slightly more than embarrassed to be carrying along a wee brown bear–especially since he doesn’t even know me. However, he was sheepishly game (but that was probably the beer). I think his pals will surely take the piss for awhile–but whatever–anything for blogging material. This ought to be interesting.
I’ve thought of a few simple rules for this project too.
- Take interesting pictures of the bear.
- Take pictures with no humans in them–just props and the bear.
- Every so often, please send updates of the bear.
- Don’t loose the bear.
- No pornographic pictures with the bear, SVP. This project is purely G rated.
I had a lot of fun with my Little People Project last year when I went home the Yukon for my parents wedding anniversary. I took pictures of the Little People everywhere. I even took them over the Chilkoot Trail.
That’s it. That’s all I can think of right now. I hope John has fun, takes the ribbing from his mates, and takes some good pictures. We’ll have to see.
