First and Second Life at least.

Oh my goodness, “Oz” has turned into a giant fern somehow, he he. Actually this is just one of those floating plants common on AI1 superimposed on “Oz” to make it look like it’s gone. This is one of the ways we country bumpkins entertain ourselves out here, away from all the hustle and bustle and excitement of the mainlands. 🙂

AI1’s only railroad that I know of, and not much of one at that. Length is about 100 meters, and dead ends in the sea. Not a functional railroad. In fact, the transportation system on AI1 leaves much to be desired. *But* at least we *have* roads. What were the Linden’s thinking in creating new continents without a transportation system I would ask you??

Baker Bloch tries to relax while floating around in a quiet pond next to a church, but all the for sale signs in the background keep him anxious. So so many yellow (for sale) shapes on the AI1 map, and indeed all over AI period. Can it weather the recession??

“Nother view of the road into the heart of AI1 from the coast. Edge to center.

And after all that wandering around it’s *nap time* (at the beach). Careful when you roll over BB not to crush your little birdie!


Howdy Neighbor!

No, not that… that’s one of the two statues he put up in his back yard. None of the family has actually met him yet.

Baker Blinker has welcomed him to the neighborhood in an im, though. The house looks really nice in its location. And suddenly there’s a group of deer running in the void sim to the south now!


AI3, Part 3 (final)

While walking the road system of AI3, Blochs encounters this huge building. Is this up to code? he thinks. It’s certainly “up”, that’s for sure. Moving along…

Well, actually not a lot to report on the road part of AI3, so I’ll leave you with this picture of the island from an eastern peninsula in one of its several void sims. Oh wait, Baker wants to go back to the hut before he leaves for more photos.

So here Baker Bloch is peering into the hut. Hmmm, owner appears to have left the local terrain channel on for some reason. Part of the mystery of the place?

And then Baker decides he simply has to visit the strange hand imprint in the ocean south of AI3 before heading home. He couldn’t help think that if you erase just one of the two fingers you have Azure Island perhaps flipping the mainlands a bird (?) Is this the possible, hidden meaning? Perhaps it is time for Baker to take another nap he’s so fond of.:-)
