 The pier rail was damp from the morning dew as we headed out to catch all kinds of fishes, we hoped. As the Teams walked out a few small orange bumps were spotted on the hand rail. The closer we got the more they looked like toadstools.



When we got closer it was obvious they were fungi growing from a convenient crack in the rail. They were cute. The OFM put a hand down next to them to give perspective to the size of the heads.



This was a couple of days ago and we have not been back to check on them. For all we know the monstrous mosquitoes may have eaten them.

Today was eye doctor inspection day for the OFM eyes. Tomorrow will be a final test for this year for the OFM. The news is that yes the cataracts are enlarging and when they are far enough along they will be eliminated. The eye doctor was pleased that nothing funny or unusual was going on. In fact the retinal scan showed some serious healing on a trouble first spotted a couple of years ago. In fact the damaged spot shows about a 50% healing has occurred.

The doc and the OFM had some serious exacting discussion about the future of the OFM eyes. The doc feels that they are at least a year away from being ready for surgery as a minimum. The growth of the cataracts are slow and it could easily be a year or two longer than that. Also the prescription for the OFM glasses has not changed enough to bother with new lenses.  So now we are good to go after the final test tomorrow.

Now all we have to do is find a location without mosquitoes for trying to have tooooo much fun.
