An early morning walk was nice when in the shade of the trees and hot otherwise. We got in a nice mile and a half and had to get back to the Castle for an errand to help a neighbor single guy. He needed transport to and from the medical facility to have a colonoscopy done.

The only picture we have for tonight is a nice picture of a piece of the golf course.

The trail barriers were still in place when we came to them this morning. That is the main reason for the shorter walk. Hopefully the barriers will be gone tomorrow.

The neighbor's procedures went off well and we got him home around lunch time. The OFM headed back out to Lawler's for a chicken stuffed baked potato to be lunch and supper. Yep it was very tasty.

This afternoon was “wasted” doing work on a painting planned for watercolor pencils only to see how that works out. So far it seems like the OFM needs some serious teaching on how to do watercolor pencils correctly.

This evening we checked on the neighbor and he seems to be doing rather well. Helping someone in need can be very fulfilling. Then finishing out the day painting a picture is a good way of trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. That was nice of you to help your neighbor.
    Good for the karma & your soul.
    Any good fish around to bother or are you only a saltwater fisher?

    1. I fish fresh and salt where I can get to the water to fish. This area is nearly boat only for fishing.

  2. Helping others is good for the self. I'm not surprised that you would do so.

  3. Ha. Yes. Ferrying other old people to and from various procedures seems to be a rite of passage. And the anesthesia these days is so good, nobody knows anything about what happened when they had it. Which is good. Also, the instructions not to sign contracts for 24 hours always amuses me. I hope your guy felt a bit euphoric when he emerged. And didn't sign any contracts.

    1. He was doing just fine this evening when I stopped by to check on him.
