The flu shot the OFM got yesterday showed up this afternoon with the usual 5-6 hours of feeling fluish. A couple of acetaminophen tablets and a nice long nap ran those feeling off. We are doing fine now.
Grock Explores my House
Adventure Begins at: Gavinland, AL
It Began on: 9/13/20
When Grock and the OFM arrived at my house, I came over to the door to greet Grock.
Talk to Grock here
So after we met at the door me and Grock went to the dining room table which became the
very messy writing and printing table and the OFM showed his coloring book to us. We looked
at the coloring book and saw many pictures that OFM colored.
After we saw the coloring book, I had an idea to show Grock one of my adventurous books
that I made.
Grock loved my book because it was full of adventures. A little while later Grock said “I’m
bored. Let’s play hide and seek!” I said “Ok, Grock, would you like to hide?” Grock really
wanted to hide. First, I easily saw Grock hiding behind my big crayon box. Is it easy for you to
After I told Grock that I saw him, he came out and said “Wow, you’re really good at this! I’d
better up my game with you playing this!” Next round, he sure did up his game! That round
took me an extra 2 minutes. Then I found him in my sister, Piper’s drawer next to her rocking
Afterwards, he wanted to know what I do outside. I showed him our swings. He asked me to
push him on the swing.
Then Grock saw a mountain! I told him that it wasn’t a mountain, it was a slide. He wanted to
slide. Whoaaaa that’s a long way down for a rock! But he wasn’t bothered a bit.
Then he saw a big doorway in the trees. I told him that it was my rather pokey tree house. Not
a clubhouse in the trees, but a big area in trees. The entrance is a challenge, but Grock is
tougher then that!
In the second room, my living room had a very big tree. Grock wanted to climb the tree. How
high he climbed in the tree was pretty darn high for a rock like Grock. In fact, he climbed up to
my second floor! “You have a second floor?” asked Grock. “But of course!” I said. “These trees
go very high. I almost climbed to the top of one of these.’’ Grock wished he could go that high.
Grock eventually got tired of the house and wanted to find the exit. Believe it or not, there was
another doorway in the trees. We went out, and Grock rested.
Then after Grock finished resting, he said he was hungry. So I took him to the garden and gave
him a tomato.
Grock thought that the garden looked like a forest and walked around until he got lost in the
I told him to not go in the garden without permission and supervision. Then I saw that Grock
was very dirty. I told him he had to take a bath. When we got inside, Grock jumped into the tub.
The silly rock asked “Will I get sucked down the drain?” I said “Not unless you want me to yank
out the plug and you get sucked.” “...you know I’m kidding, Grock!” After his bath, I showed
him my games. He liked my colorful joy cons for the Nintendo Switch.
After the big tour of what I do sometimes, Grock told me that my home was too much fun. To
follow the advice of the OFM, I thought, I guess my house truly is toooooo much fun.
Adventure Location: Tatum, Texas

We got rolled at first light and rolled well most of the day. We are at our third destination Martin Creek Lake State Park near Tatum Texas. We found out towing at 65 dropped the fuel mileage a full mile per gallon over towing at 60. WOW.
Resting in the 90+F heat and 90+ humidity as today's way of trying to have tooooo much fun.

Rolling began about 1000 due to visiting with neighbors at the campground this morning. But we did get rolling and had a very nice easy time until we got to Llano Tx From there through Georgetown TX on highway 29 was a slow traffic mess. Nothing really bad just thick and slow.
But it finally ended and it was back into the country again. We got to Taylor Campground of the COE system. Checking in was easy and very quick. Then we roamed around a bit until we found our campsite.
The OFM messed up and took two tries to get the Castle into the site. He had no excuse since there was plenty of room and no hurry. But he got the Castle situated and comfortable. Here is the Castle sitting pretty.
The OFM then took a nice walk around the campground of 47 sites. There is about 10 rvs in here today and it is very quiet.
About the only thing going on is resting for tomorrows rolling on east and dreaming of having tooooo much fun in grandkid land.
