Estimated Next Rolling Date: February 12, 2012
Let us begin where the story left off yesterday. The trip to Port Aransas to have lunch with BillyBob was delayed by a half hour wait for the ferry. But his pup Sadie Mae was so happy to see me she nearly bit my leg off or at least pretended like she would. She is an excellent watch dog and alarms very well to let BB take care of any trouble.
Lunch was good at the Tex-mex place. Then afterward BB and I took a walk in the small park where the birders go to watch feather legs mess around. The picture that was taken of BB at the birdwatchers location was given to BB since he threatened me with severe bodily harm if it was even mentioned he was bird watching.
After that he took me to three secret spots he knows where you always catch at least a hunnert fish. We caught nothing. Check his blog to see a picture of one of the spots. But the day was beautiful and the sun warm, the breeze nice and lots of folks were out playing and laughing. This is the normal winter weather here in Port Aransas.
There was a fake sand castle in a planter shaped like a boat. It looked like cement and sand mix was used to build it. The detail was very good.
After a bit BB was dropped off at his place and the OFM went on his way. To my surprise the ferry line to leave the island was only twenty minutes. When the Team came close to Rockport, it was decided that some pier fishing was needed. But it was not to be. As my way was made out onto the pier, two nice folks were encountered and we visited for until it started getting chilly. They were Jim and Jerry Kimmel. He teaches at a college and she is a photographer. They have written a book about the Brazos River in Texas that might be pretty good reading. If it is a good as the visiting was then it is a very interesting book.
Then it was time to get home, fed and cleaned and into bed. Man that was an intense day.
This morning has been severe fog. Then sun for about four hours in the mid-day and severe fog again in the late afternoon and evening was the weather. Staying inside seemed to be the best idea.
There is a hole in the floor that used to be covered by the bench seat that was taken out. Every now and then it catches the wheel of the chair that is my main seating. Today it was fixed. The rug was pulled back. An electrical junction box plate was put on the sheet vinyl. A black line was traced around the plate. Then a knife was used to trim along the line. The chunk of vinyl was removed. The plate put against the wood floor and screwed down. The plate and the vinyl are just about the same thickness so it worked out very well.
Sometimes my stupidity scares me. For two years now efforts have been made to make it easy to cut the electricity to the converter. Everything seemed to involve taking the front grill of the cabinet on and off. That is a real pain. Nothing has worked out very well. Then suddenly the answer flashed in front of me as pots were being put away.
The converter is plugged into a receptacle mounted on the cabinet wall between the under sink area and the under stove area. Finally my peanut brain realized that all that has to be done is unscrew two screws, move the receptacle to the other side of the wall and screw it back to the new wall location. There was way plenty of electrical power wire slack to easily do it.
Now all that is required is to open the pan cabinet and plug or unplug the converter as needed. It would have been nice if my brain had worked two years ago. GEZZZZ.
Late this evening a trip to the harbor was taken in hopes of getting some neat fog shots. The new header is one of them. There is about fifty more yet to edit before showing them to the world. Taking pictures in a shore fog can be a great way of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
