We Forgot

Adventure Location: Rockport, TX
Adventure Date: 02/07/2018

According to his records the OFM got over his bad cold eight days ago. Then why is he still hacking and coughing fairly frequently? That was his concern as he sat next to the dining room window this afternoon. Yep is was certainly wet inside and outside.-------- inside. Why is it wet inside????



All the water on that window is inside the Castle. He suddenly realized he had been noticing more and more water inside the Castle on the aluminum window frames. Why this year????? Just think of all the mold and mildew that is lingering inside!
KABLAMMMMMM The thought hit him upside the head like a sledge hammer. Where is the dehumidifier we normally, since 2007, have had running? OHH YEH we got rid of it after last winter. The winter of 2007/2008 taught us that at dehumidifier is needed when this close to the coast.

Since the solution had been identified, it was action time. The Rockport Walmart was out of smaller de-humidifiers so off to Aransas Pass Walmart we headed. They had the next to smallest model in stock. The OFM grabbed one and away we went. Back at the Castle the dehumidifier was quickly unpacked and put to work.


It has been a bit over two hours now and the Teams can really feel the difference. Why did we forget? We can only guess it is old age senility. Having drier air to breath will definitely enhance our ability for trying to have tooooo much fun.

  2. At least you were able to resolve the issue while in Rockport. Had you been in Del Rio and the local store not have it in stock, you would have had to drive 60 miles to Uvalde or Eagle Pass to the next available Walmart.

    1. The humidity in Del Rio never gets high enough to need a de-humidifier. The desert is a lot nicer than the coast in cold weather.

  3. Glad you resolved you issue. Having Mold and Mildew inside the Castle is not a good way of having tooooo much fun.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

  4. I tell myself that we forget things like this in order to keep our lives interesting. . . And to have something else to look forward to, when my memory gets bad enough there will no longer be such a thing as re-runs on TV!!

    1. I think what is meant ~ even watching repeated programs will be like seeing them for the first time, because you have forgotten watching the original. Or did you mean, you ferget what re-runs are ;)?

  5. It is my opinion our older brains start to purge extraneous stuff to make room for the new extraneous stuff! Feel better, sitting is sun, if you can find some helps, a lot!

  6. Plus excess humidity makes me feel cold. I like warm, dry air.
