Speaking of good eating. For the month of June Lawlers BBQ here in Decatur has had a great special of a stuffed baked potato with your choice of meat for $5. Yes the OFM has partaken SEVERAL times. Well he finally remembered to get a picture of the part that comes home with us. The potatoes are too big for the OFM to finish it at the restaurant so about half of one comes home with us.
This next picture is of roughly half or slightly less of the potato. That is a full size Correll dinner plate it is sitting on.
Yep a great two meals per potato. We like it.
What did you do alllll day OFM? First was the 2.2 mile speed walk and picture taking. Then studying art stuff was started. And an idea come to the OFM. He has 7 different types of art production items like water colors, water color pencils and on. It seemed like a good idea to paint the same picture seven times using a different system for each one. Thats a lot of work. Yes it was. However it was well worth all the trouble. Now we know more about which style works best on certain types of art work.
It was a lot of fun to do and turned out to be much more work than originally was thought it would be but it was also about ten times as much fun also.
When we finished the OFM sat down with his training manual and read some more to understand what he had experienced and hopefully retain the education for more than thirty seconds for a change.
After all that the OFM decided to attempt a very simple painting with watercolor pencils. He hopped to and got busy. The effort went well but the painting show many mistakes of commission that need to be corrected in the next attempt. This particular one took 3 1/2 hours from start to finish.
It was fun and severely educational and kept the OFM out of the heat and humidity also. We also learned that it was a good way of trying to have tooooo much fun.
