Ozzie Arrives – March 15, 2015 4:58 PM

The female H. Sapien saw him first. The Doctor and the female H. Sapien were talking to their son on speakerphone. The female H. Sapien simply said, “There’s Ozzie”.

The Doctor looked up. It was like Christmas and Easter and Happy Birthday rolled into one. Sure enough, there was Ozzie poised majestically, on the Taj Mahal, at the top of the 9 foot spire.

The Doctor became discombobulated. He tripped over his two left feet as he vaulted for his camera.  Masterfully, he steadied the tripod and made it level. The little bubble easily found its home.

Click, click, “Something’s wrong here,” thought the Doctor.
Click, click again. “Oh yeah; the lens cap.”
The Doctor adroitly removed the lens cap. He could see Ozzie through the viewfinder clearly now.

Click click, “Something’s wrong here!”
Click, click again. “What? No memory card?”
He dashed to his office and snatched up ScanDisk 1.0 GB. It snapped comfortably into place.

Click, click……..then nothing. Nothing at all, ——- dead battery!
He shot to his office.
Back now with charged battery retrieved.

Click, battery in place.
Snap, battery latch closed.
Zoom, focus, click, click, click.

The Doctor got three quick pictures of Ozzie seconds before he flew off.
And here they are:
