It has been said that you can do something right 2 million times....but the second you
don't, everyone wants to see.Â So is the Great Stranded Barge of Sandbridge....
I went out with the video camera to Sandbridge to witness this remarkable event this past weekend.
It was amazing to see this thing...in all of its stoic steel...and everyone snapping pictures.Â Â Even I fell
victim to it's giganticism.
This guy looks like he has a plan to get it out...and "if they would just listenÂ I could tell them how we
got a carrier out of the great barrier reef in 1972".....or at least thats what I see
I took this picture and think it needs the caption:
"27 years together and THIS is the cruise you've been promising?!?!?!"
....and of course, I would be remiss to NOT have done one of my videos.
The moral of the story.... as I have found, all the good you have done in the world is invisible...
people wanna see you with egg on your face and your pants down.Â Â ...thats remarkable, folks.Â
Some may call me a pessimist....I call it a realist.Â The sun rises every morning over this same beach,
and you would think the universe painted a picture just for you...but what draws a crowd?Â ...yep...
300,000 tons of steal carrying a bunch of toxic waste.Â Â Â Ya gotta laugh.
Yours in nakedness,
