Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas
First thing this morning was paying the rent and utilities. Another month here was paid. That cost me $255 for months rent and electricity. Then it was off to get rid of some excess blood. There was a lot of trouble getting my blood to keep flowing. Four times the tech had to move the needle around to get the flow started again. She has done my blood draw a few times before flawlessly so it is known she is good at her work. Finally we got finished and my reward was a real red neck tee shirt.
The time was almost 10:30 am when the blood draw was finished and the temperature was nice and warm to go with the sunshine.
After some grocery shopping for tomorrows semi pot luck it was time for me to get horizontal. For some reason today the blood letting caused me some weakness. That bed fit my back very well as my resting progressed. It was about three when my body felt good enough to get busy again.
The mail man had come and gone and the mail was out for us to get ours. My new golf glasses from Zenni optical had arrived. Look out BillyBob and pesky Wayne. These were a little under $20 delivered to me total cost. Those prices are good for my limited SSA budget.
Tonight a wild thunderstorm is passing through the area. The TV antenna was lowered since it was creaking and groaning in the wind gusts. Now the rain is fairly strong to go with the wind.
Recently the information has come to me that where the Castle is sitting is at elevation fourteen feet. That is fairly high for the area. The area average elevation is something like seven feet. Things like that are very important when dealing with hurricane or storm flooding on the coast. There is only one “high road” to get out of this area and now that route is firmly embedded in my brain.
The good part is that the Team only has to move about twenty miles inland to be totally safe from the flood waters and at elevations around fifty feet.
Tonight is supposed to get down to 46. Tomorrow night is forecast to get down to 38. With a smidgen of luck we will not get too much snow and ice to get in the way of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
