Morning came with the OFM not really doing so well from the migraine yesterday so it was slow going. After the gentle breakfast, he made himself take a slow full length walk (3.5 miles). By the time we turned back toward the Castle it was getting hot. Yep here came the sweat.

We did see a few nice things on the walk. One item was an old stump that had been covered in overgrowth for a long time. Something had torn a bunch of the overgrowth away so we could get a look into the old stump. The OFM expected to see lots of trash from the slobs that also walk the trail. Here is what we found.



At another location we found more grapes trying to be ready for harvest during this heat spell. This particular cluster of grape vines were all in trees at the creek shoreline. They seemed to be getting plenty of water to drink.



In a couple of more weeks they will be ready to turn into delicious wine. YUMMY. But someone else will have to do the work.

The OFM’s DIL gave him some pickled okra last Saturday. Today a few pods were added to the OFM’s noon large salad. The salad included little tomatoes, okra, black olives, three kinds of lettuce, honey mustard dressing, small sausages and some he cannot remember items. It was very good and went down real easy. Yummity Yum Yum.




It was a busy day for sure. We even got the Castle’s license plate tag renewed so we can roll after the new tires get here. The Castle is getting all new shoes of the latest design soon. We want to roll in peace on the new tougher Goodyear Endurance trailer tires.

It has been a busy day and we are ready for some rest before tomorrow gets started with a major amount of trying to have tooooo much fun.

  1. You got a nice walk and a tasty looking lunch you enjoyed, The new trailer tires and rims will be much safer for you when you head out.
