It is incredibly amazing the improvement in the left foot discoloration. The big dark junk on the sides of the foot are at least 40% lessened. The swelling is at least 60% less with nearly no color at all. Still there has not been any pain at all.

One thing the OFM remembered during one of his elevate the leg horizontal times is that this is the foot that got super hyper extended in Viet Nam and got him easy duty for six weeks in the Cam Rahn Bay Hospital and Convalescence Center. That was the only time he has ever been in a cast. It was a nice facility right on the salt water.

That leaves him to wonder if there is any connection between this event and the one “over there”.

Now back to HAPPY. How is this for HAPPY?
HAPPY


The OFM’s grand daughter is a normally extremely happy lady. But wow does she like to take things apart.

There is a bush found frequently in the woods around this area. The white flowers are very pretty.




The best part is that they are very sweetly fragrant and abundant.

This is Labor Day weekend and Decatur has lots of things happening. The Battle for Decatur re-enactment of that Civil War Battle has been done yesterday and today. The “Battle” lasts about an hour and is very noisy. It was well attended but not by the OFM. No way Sierra was going into that mob scene and the OFM did not want to put another mile each way on his foot.

We did get a picture of this family of fungi viewing the parade as it meandered through the water park area.




All in all the OFM has done a decent job of caring for his foot and the healing is showing it. We did a bit of gentle on the feet putting away and rearranging things in preparation of leaving Wednesday. From the weather predictions the stupid tropical storm will HIT our path back to Rockport. We are delaying our start to miss the worst of the weather. Not playing in nasty weather events is a wonderful way of having tooooo much fun.
