Adventure Location: Falcon State Park, Falcon Heights, Texas
It was time to chop it off. For years the cord on a drop light has had several coils of the wire tied to make the entire unit shorter. The 25 foot cord on the drop light was way too long for the Team’s needs. Today the OFM finally turned his brain on and decided to shorten the cord. It was an easy procedure (of course it was if he could do it) and only took about fifteen minutes. Now the cord is about seven feet long and much more usable inside the Castle. In colder weather it is hung in the bedroom as a heater as well as inside illumination. Here it is in the new slim trim style.
The excess cord was taken to my local drop off station known as Billy Bob’s campsite. He really likes to have lots of spare stuff for Sally his elegant motorhome to carry.
During one of the Teams meanders today we found evidence of severe rain for this area. Any rain is considered severe if it gets to the ground around here.
Those little droplets impressions were not there yesterday. The weather forecast even predicts some rain tonight and tomorrow. I will have to see it to believe it myself.
The lake continues to rise. The flooded spot shown in yesterday’s blog is a bit deeper and larger today. In fact a couple of shorebirds were wading in the road feeding on critters.
They were very skittish and would fly off before the OFM got anywhere close to them.
In this same lake bottom area is a bush that has pretty pink flowers. The color is very delicate and difficult to photograph. We did finally get this one shot that came out fairly well. If anyone can identify it, we would appreciate knowing the “breed” of the bush.
The arm is still getting better. Several more days of pills remain but the arm can be set down on the table without pain now. That is a wonderful improvement. No arm pain makes it a lot easier to get out and try to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
