The faster and longer walk with our neighbor yesterday took a big toll today. The right hip was not cooperating with moving around this morning. Even the short walk to the garbage dumpster was a slow meander. The result was a long day of taking it extremely easy. And three truck loads of ibuprofen.

This gave the Art Team a chance to put a lot of work into the ongoing picture. It is a slow moving piece since the OFM reads on the internet about how to do something and then tries to do it. He is not good at remembering all the details. But it did help the OFM be able to walk well by supper time.

Yep you can count on the OFM controlling the speed and distance of a walk to our known ability in the future. We feel that this was a good experiment to see how his joints were doing and now we know for sure. Tonight the troubles are pretty well over it seems.

Originally we had planned a 9 hole golf outing for this afternoon, but that was a total no-go for today. With all this resting today, tomorrow should be a heavy duty day of trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. The "ongoing" picture remains a mystery. The only thing I could think of was a prickly pear tuna when I saw the little piece of it you posted. Glad you recovered from your walk with a marathoner.

  2. When someone asks to go along on YOUR walk you should set the pace.
    Tell them you'll be stopping for pictures to help slow it down.
    Glad you've recovered. Have a fun day, OFM.

    1. The pace and route was mutually agreed. I wanted to test my upper limits with another person along. All blame for my short term misery belongs to me. Thank you for commenting.
