A big surprise awaited the OFM when he exited the bed this morning. But some background is in order. About a week ago he had a severe pain in his left leg inner thigh that pretty well shut him down for a few days. He could not recall doing anything to hurt himself. He just woke up one morning barely able to get the left leg to work. Ibuprofen did very little to help. But by massage and careful moving around it slowly got better.

Yesterday it seemed everything was ok again. Then when he got out of bed this morning and nothing hurt he figured he was healed. So while getting ready for a morning shower, he was astounded to find a massive bruise on the inside and back of his left thigh.

There was not a bit of pain or even a little soreness but we can easily tell where the trouble from the week before had been. Apparently something had happened deep in the leg and the Teams still cannot recall any injury to cause this bruise. At least it is not painful anymore and is likely still healing. But it was definitely a big surprise for first thing in the morning.

OK now for some good news on the art scene. The OFM has been using his computer screen for a tracing pad and it is not a good tracing pad. We accidentally noticed a good pad was on sale through Amazon. We verified the item was the right item. We re-verified the price was about half off. So the credit card was squeezed harder and the item was ordered. It was about $32 including shipping. It arrived today and got a check out done on it. It works great.

This will give the OFM Art Team a major help in prepping art efforts for new paintings.

We have a little cool spell hitting here starting tomorrow. We hope it will cause more flower activity in the area. We are only five days behind on editing all the current flower pictures now so we need some more fresh pictures, right?

As the blog tag line says, DON'T WAIT, DO IT NOW, so get out and try to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Hoping your leg heals soon so you continue getting out trying to have tooooo much fun.
