Good morning CNB. Glad to know you’re feeling somewhat better.

CNB:

Considerably better. I’m about ready to take that plung into SL again. Thanks for scouting some of the Azure Islands for me the past several days and sending the snapshots. I want to invest wisely but I believe that’s where I could or should be anchored.

bb:

Love the open spaces… the void sims.

CNB:

I’ll have to go soon. And to the portal on [delete name] islands. Although I didn’t get into SL yet, I did take a road trip the other day to Tyrone.* Not much there but I took pictures and also jotted down the names of all the streets.

bb:

I’d like to see the pictures. Did you go to Burro Peak as you planned as well?

CNB:

I didn’t quite feel up to a hike of that rigour yet. But soon.

bb:

I have a theory that Azure Island, the main one, is as close as SL has to Baker’s Island, you know, from the beginning of my blog. The real island in Nova Scotia. This is where the merger of Lemon and Lime resurfaces and is resolved, Chuck. Pretty sure of that. If you don’t buy land there, I might.

CNB:

Maybe we should be neighbors. Did you see any art?

bb:

Not much. Some of a sexual nature but that was only the second largest island, not the first. There’s also a walled community on the second island. There are 4 or 5 larger islands altogether and then a desert region as well. I’ll explore it all for you. Maybe this weekend. I’m just walking, or better, running the roads, like I use to do on the mainlands.

CNB:

I’d like enough room to set up the maze again. I’ll let you put your collages up too. It would be a gallery of some kind. Have you started your chromagraph research up again yet?

bb:

Not quite yet. I need to pull out the old notebooks. Resolve my keyboard issue. A keyboard is more important than land on Azure Island now?

CNB:

Of course.

bb:

One could also have a skybox gallery.

CNB:

I’d like to merge Baker’s Island and Azure’s Island. ISLAND. SPRITE.

bb:

A cave would be nice too!

 * Chuck now knows that there are only 2 Azure population places in the US, one of which is a variant name of the Tyrone he mentions visiting in this post. It is located just ne of his Hidalgo County, in the neighboring county of Grant. The other Azure, the only non-variant strain, lies in Hill County, Montana. I was able to convince Chuck that this represents the merger of Lemon (World) and Lime (World) again through keyword Sprite (lemon-lime), since basketball player Grant Hill (combo of two county names which Azure manifests in) was a notable spokesperson for this product in the 90s (“Grant Hill Drinks Sprite”). Both Chuck and I took it as a sign that the Azure Islands are a key to his reentry into SL. Thus my commission to explore them for him.
