TCC for 5/15/10
"New" 2007 post follows below.
The Caretaker is officially on hiatus from his blog until at least the end of this week but most likely through the end of next week. However, he will still have the e-mails from 2007 posted every night at 9 p.m. EST, they will be going out via the automated system. If the Caretaker happens to take some photos and has the time to post them he will do so. For those readers who have relied on the Caretaker's notifications of new posts via Facebook, while he is on hiatus from his blog he will not be sending out notifications via Facebook for the automated posts from 2007. If you'd like, you can sign up for e-mail notifications by entering your e-mail address at left, it is titled: "To receive E-mail notification of new posts:" It is just below the Caretaker's brief profile.
Before there was the blog the Caretaker sent out posts via e-mail, the following is from the Caretaker's second winter on the Island:
Island Ice Report for 3/3/07:
The Caretaker woke up this morning to a very thick fog. He could barely make out Sloop Island. Any thoughts of travel were quickly scuttled, although the Caretaker really didn't have any thoughts on leaving the Island so it didn't really matter. So knowing that the Caretaker would be Island bound for the day he got caught up on the few dishes that needed cleaning from the past week, having been off Island everyday for most of the week there wasn't much to wash. He did more work on his painting, and played his guitar again practicing the new songs, it was much more rewarding than yesterday's session. The Caretaker is thinking that he will probably record these new songs during ice-out and release them over the internet via his myspace.com page. In the late afternoon the Caretaker skied out a new path on the Island in the snow from the previous day's storm and then skied that for a while. He then went out on to the ice to try and photograph the Lunar eclipse. Due to clouds low on the horizon there wasn't much to be seen so instead the Caretaker took some more photos of the Island, they weren't all that bad. The one photo at sunset over the West shore is from a few weeks earlier, the Caretaker thought he'd throw that in for good measure. Blah, blah, blah...
