The mask the OFM wears for virus protection is the Buff he has been wearing while fishing for several years. We guess the years have caused it to stretch some and slip down. 


So for the last couple of weeks we have used a small black binder clip to take out some slack. While sitting around waiting for more healing on yesterdays migraine, the OFM decided to attempt to sew a permanent repair to the Buff.


Sewing is a trouble for him with his old arthritic fingers and trifocal lenses. But he gave it a go and got it done. Threading the needle was difficult but after two or three hundred tries we had the thread installed for sewing.  


Simple whip stitching was all that was done to take up the slack. After a couple of the best fishing knots known to mankind finished off the sewing job, a drop of Super Glue finished off the ends. We hope will hold for a few years.



In spite of the 103F heat we had a couple more adventures but the best one was supper. The OFM got the bell pepper, squash, onion and two fresh eggs out of the refrigerator. Chopping, make that CAREFUL chopping of the vegetables was done. Then it was olive oil in the pot, with fresh ground black pepper and Italian Spices for a stir fry party.


While the vegetables were simmering, the OFM prepared the dinner plate with a layer of BBQ sauce. The vegetables got gently ready. The OFM pretty much cooks everything gently. Then the vegetables went onto the plate to soak in the BBQ sauce.


Two eggs were scramble with additional not hot spicy spices and slid out onto the rest of the BBQ Sauce. And it was feast time.



In the mean time we had a great time trying some new things to play with in the future. This evening is looking like a good evening to try for a good sunset picture down at the lake as a way of trying to have tooooo much fun again.
