Hi everybody. Welcome to the blog where I talk about my past. You know, I lived in Australia for a long time. It was great living there. I really liked the different animals that are there. For example, my neighbor saw a huge reptile in the backyard. She called up the zoo, the newspapers and it turned into a big thing. The zookeeper came over and it turned out to be a plastic toy from next door. She was a little embarrassed, needless to say. One time I was in the outback, you know, in a four wheel drive, driving down the road toward the sunset. I came up over the ridge and I saw a real strange creature in front of me. It had a big long face, big eyes, two long legs and it was just staring at me. It looked like an alien. Then there was another one and another. I thought Oh my god, they're aliens. It turns out they were camels facing me. I couldn't see the rest of their body. Only their front legs. It kind of freaked me out. It was a land of plenty of strange animals. Big crocodiles, big sharks, never a dull moment, I'll tell you.

It was a great place for a young photographer. Plenty of editorial, you know, magazine work. I don't know where young photographers start now. My friend said anywhere and I agree. My friend here says I was lucky to be there then, and I was. My friend got me a visa, I don't know how he got it but it was a visa they only issued to someone like the queen or someone like that, so every time I left Australia, they would say, "Who are you?" I never did ask him where he got the visa from.

I'm not gonna blog anymore cause my little one's here. Let's pick out a random cartoon to share with you. You know, I used to always keep my journals in cartoon form. I'll have my friend pick one out. Talk to you guys next week. Love, B. Nice

P.S. Here's the link to my blog about the present.
