The hard cold rain woke the OFM this morning. But it only flooded parts of the campground again. This is a bad year for shallow flooding of the low area. But no rigs were endangered and by later afternoon all the water was back inside the ditches.

We got on over to the optical place to get the OFM his new glasses. The lady took extremely good care of the Teams and we were soon out of there to meander around and try out the new glasses. We went by the new Whataburger building to see exactly where it is located. It will be a bear to get to/from on most days.

The Teams went into a couple of stores to just meander around checking out the new glasses and realized they were not really just right. So the OFM took careful mental notes and we headed back to the optical shop.

The nice lady there listened attentively and then looked at how the glasses were sitting on that ugly OFM mug. Then she put on her magicians hat and took a massive pair of pliers and a hammer and went to work on the glasses. There was a few whacks, creaks, skreeches and some special magic applied. The OFM tried them on and they were perfect for fit now. We were well impressed.

After using the new glasses for a few hours on the computer, we decided that they were great. The usual headache after a couple of hours of computer work did not show up even after MANY hours on the computer today. Yep we needed that change.

Some time around noon the OFM recalled that it might be time for a dental check up and cleaning. So he called and sure enough we had waited long enough. So tomorrow morning we head on over to the dentist's office for a work over on the OFM teeth. This is another excellent service location in Decatur, Al. Mario Monge is the dentist and his group has been taking care of the OFM for several years now. They are very highly recommended by the Teams.

We enter the three day of freezing or near freezing nights starting tonight. The Teams plan on keeping our outdoor skinny dipping to a minimum during this three day event.

We are hoping that all the computer effort today will lead to starting a new painting tomorrow. That would be a good cold weather way of trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Maybe you can try painting the asters like in the header pic?

    hee hee

  2. Isn't it crazy how they bend and twist what we are so careful to handle.
    Stay safe & warm OFM. Thanks for the chuckles.

  3. Keeping oneself healthy is a great way of having tooooo much fun.
    Be Safe and Enjoy your painting.

    It's about time.

  4. "They" are building a Whataburger for you in Alabama? What a deal!!

  5. The last pair of glasses I bought fit perfectly right out of the box. Never had that happen before but I sure am loving it.

  6. Glad the glasses fit right now. My problem is my left eye is so bad they can't seem to get my vision correct. Not good for freezing temperatures that far south.🥶
