If the weather there is as bad as it is here, you like me need a little get away.
So, let's go to St. Malcolm for a few. It is a balmy 88 degrees, you will
hear the sound of the ocean and steel drums.
Jasper Nealson is a daredevil, animal activist, animal rescuer and new writer.
He is trying to to capture on film some of his underwater adventures
to turn into segment that he can shopper round as a TV pilot on animal adventure.
Jasper: This is fascinating!
He is diving off the coast of the island of Meana near St. Malcolm when he get a

Myrtle: Jasper this is Myrtle can you hear me? over
Jasper didn't know that Myrtle had attached the radio to his equipment.
Jasper: Unfortunately I can Myrtle! You connected a radio to the
equipment? I am trying to capture the beauty of this coral reef.
Can't I get a little peace?
Myrtle: No,... and you didn't say over! We have to be able to reach you in
an emergency! I just got a call from rescue about an injured penguin
on the island of St. Malcolm! Over.

Jasper: Number 157A? What is Dick Cheney doing here? He is a long
distance from home. He should be off the Cape of Good Hope.
Myrtle: Uh...I don't think anyone but you will find calling
number 157A Dick Cheney funny.
Myrtle: And your daughter Tori is here too!
Jasper: WOW! Dick Cheney and Tori together!
Tori: I heard that Dad! (Laughter from both father and daughter)
anything to happen to the penguin until he gets there. He will be windsurfing over
in 10 minutes.
Windsurfing... Oh My! I'll send Winston to meet him at the dock.
Can you send Winston to meet the rescuer at the dock in 10 minutes?
Jasper: You got to love this place! The sea and the beauty!
Jasper: OK there is the dock!
Jasper: I going to head over by the stairs!
him from the dock.
Winston: I can believe it! Him surfing in!
Jasper pulls up on his board and steps onto the beach.
Winston: You mus' be Dr. Nealson.
Jasper: Call me Jasper!
Winston: OK, Jasper! Mrs. Laurent she be down the beach with the animal. I take you over.
Jasper: So it is a penguin?
Jasper: Poor little fellow. How did is happen?
He looks at the penguin.
Jasper: No that's not a shark bite. And that shark out there is
number 157A. I call him Dick Cheyenne. He had heart problems as a
young shark, he is missing vision in one eye and he is just about five feet.
He is a little small. He was probably drawn by the blood in the water.
I've been tracking him for two weeks. That looks more like a boating injury.
I'm going to call for a rescue vac. I will have them come back for Dick Cheyenne
too. He really needs better care.
