I was looking up directions to a friend's house and Google Maps popped up so I started looking around the streets and came upon this guy. I wonder if he knows he is on the internet shirtless? lol I have to make sure I don't run out to the mailbox in my skivvies.

You never know when the Google Earth car is going to cruise past your place. The aerial shot of our place shows me in a white t-shirt and shorts, bending over the compost bins. Yes, you can see my butt from space. No, I will not give you the address.

At least it shows that he's taking good care of his yard.

I hope the Google car doesn't come back anytime soon at my house, currently it looks pretty nice. If it comes back in October there are usually tons of leaves everywhere. One of the houses on my street had a long-time owner (over 40 years) and the yard was full of trees and overgrown shrubs. The owner sold to a flipping company that ripped everything out and put in nothing but sod. It's funny to see the contrast.

My friend had a fit about Facebook privacy and all of that, so logged off. He does this on occasion, but always comes back.

Well, he came back last week, posting a picture of him fixing the gas cap on his truck from Google. Seems that the Google truck started re-shooting the Island just 3 days after Sandy hit, and got him!

Paranoia confirmed, LOL!

Some areas know when the truck is in their neighborhood, and they deliberately plan outdoor activities/events.
