Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas
Since it is feast day the Teams had a goal for today. At 1400 we gathered for the shared meal. The campground owners put on a very nice Thanksgiving meal for friends and campers. This year there was some excitement.
The camper in #4 had cooked a large turkey for the gathering. The campground owners’ dog, who the OFM calls Mooch Pooch, was standing around waiting for a handout. Usually MP is very polite. #4 went into his trailer for a minute. MP hopped up on the picnic table and helped herself to a little over half the turkey. MP was put into doggie prison for the rest of the day. Not to worry though, there was plenty for every person and a few thousand more. We had fun.
You might think that that is fingernail polish in those bottles. Surprise, it is actually fishing lure paint. The Ofm has been piddling around about making some lures himself. WOW the parts are too expensive. The special paint they sell for lures is unreasonable. While looking around in the Wal-Mart this morning, he realized that fingernail polish is usually a very good grade of lacquer and is waterproof.
So he stood there in the women section of Wal-Mart for a good while choosing a couple of colors for lure painting. It is also apparent that buying a plain white lure of the type he wants to use and painting it with fingernail polish is the cheapest way to piddle with lure making. Along the way he has found out that the soft plastic body lures for jig heads can be washed in soapy water, dried off and then Sharpie markers paint accents on the soft plastic very well.
After the excessive feast and a long nap to let the sugar levels get back to normal, the OFM took a ride down to the harbor to walk around a little. It was getting dark but the lighting around the area is good enough for decent walking at night. On a trip out on the pier, this cabbage head convention was noticed. The Canon camera is unreal. There was barely enough light for him to walk safely but the camera makes this look like it was noontime.
As luck would have it, when the Ofm finished his walking he noticed Earl and his wolf Juna sitting at a picnic table. Well we had a great visit. When Juna is ready to go home she stands nearby and gives out with a beautiful nearly musical howl. She is very nice Siberian Husky.
This was an easy day all about gently trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
