Tired is the descriptor that fits the OFM tonight. The early trip to Walmart 40 miles away was the first of an active day. $50 plus of groceries were purchased. However the store was not in good supply of food.

We asked a stocker what happened. He said that the first supply truck in three days just arrived this morning about 0830. So the stockers were in for a busy day. We have enough to keep the OFM fed for a couple of days until Whataburger opens again.

Then a bit after we returned to the Castle we were in for another big surprise. We headed for the state park to get a day entry pass. The reservations we had had for the coming week had been cancelled when we got an email from the TPW main office that the park would not be open. So it was a major surprise when we pulled up to the window in the state park and the nice lady mentioned she had been waiting for us to return. A brief discussion sorted it out. The reservation had not been canceled yet on her equipment, so she checked us in and we headed back to Falcon County Park to grab the Castle and move into the state park. Now it will be their trouble to figure out.

Here is our new campsite for a week.

The rest room across the street is closed at the moment according to the sign on the door.

That doesn't cause the teams any trouble since we have the Castle.

Later we went for a walk looking for another great sunset picture but all we got was a picture of a ghost that follows the OFM around.

Since we have ample 120v electricity again for the microwave, we had pancakes for supper and they were very good. We use the Walmart house brand buttermilk pancakes from the frozen foods section.

Here they are all dressed up in peanut butter waiting for the thirty second session of the microwave to soften the peanut butter and then the syrup is added. Yum.

We are looking forward to some more good trail walking and stumbling onto some great pictures to prove we are trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. I think I recognize that ghost, it looks very familiar, and has a certain distinguishing...... girth.


    1. To my surprise the girth has dropped a belt hole in the last month.

  2. Nice that you'll have plenty of walking trails as a way of having tooooo much fun.
    Be Safe and Enjoy the smaller belt size.

    It's about time.
