Teams Location: Rockport, Texas
It is bad enough that the severe winds were trying to blow the Antenna Installation Team off the roof of the Castle. Then when the wind was not successful at that, it put the Castle to rocking like a boat at anchor in the surf. Now we had the Team getting blasted by the wind while on the equivalent of a moving trampoline. But Mother Nature forgot she was dealing with an OFM Team. We cannot be defeated!After way too many trips up and down the ladder on the back of the Castle the project was accomplished. As usual there were a few things that did not go right the first try or possibly even more than once. Now the ibuprofen is hard at work to keep the knees from getting too sore and swollen. Getting older is better than not getting older.
The inside wiring was routed on the same route as the previous wiring so that portion of the project was easy (and in the A/C). The adapter was attached to the antenna wiring and the entire system given a try.
CAN YOU BELIEVE EVERYTHING WORKED AS IT WAS SUPPOSED TO WORK?
Well it did and I am still in shock! The tools were put away and it was time for a cold soda to celebrate. Working near the edge of the Castle is still an uneasy task for me. Make that two sodas.
In the afternoon the Meandering Teams went meandering. The town is very crowded today with vehicles and folks all over the waterfront. It is actually wonderful that the city and navigation district has developed the area so well for the weekenders and their $$$$$$$$$$$$. The day was beautiful and warm but not really hot yet. It will start to be hot in about three more weeks is my guess.
