It was an amazing morning wake up. Nothing was in pain. Sleep had been decent and the OFM was ready to fix breakfast. As breakfast was being prepared he realized that he was looking forward to a good walk for a change. Yesterday was gone and he is over with the vaccination misery. The remaining evidence of odd activity is a 4 inch diameter splotch of red irritation just below the injection point. It was causing no trouble.

We hit the tougher stretch of trail first this morning while still fresh just to test the old body. Everything went so well it was amazing. In fact we added about a half mile to the normal today.

Since we had not been on this part of the trail system in about four days, we got a big surprise at all the fresh and active growth of the vegetation. In this next photo there is a vine coming up from the bottom and another coming down from the top. Neither one was there four days ago.

Things are really sprouting with vigor around here.

This area of the world does lots of thing a bit different. We have noticed that when a tree falls into the lake water it become a fishing pier. There have been as many as five folks out on this fallen tree fishing for catfish and crappie.

We have been really watching the heat wave closely to help decide when to leave this area. So far it looks like we will be waiting until after Labor Day before we leave. It is just tooooo darn hot back west to be comfortable. So we have pretty well decided we will stay here until mid September and get in a couple more grandkid visits to check on how school is going this year. It will also give this Delta flu more time to be better defined as to how to handle it.

Hopefully in a week or so it will cool down a few degrees and the OFM Golf Team will get a chance to hit the course and show the locals how not to play golf. But, of course, we will be trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Getting out for walks on the cooler days is a great way for having tooooo much fun.
    Amazing the pictures we can get from what Nature has to offer.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. The top vine looks like grapes,
    the bottom one looks like wild rose.
    Very nice Crown of Thorns!

  3. Great way to wake up!! Happens to me pretty often; gravity is the enemy of my back. I thought those flowers were lady's slippers! Guess I can't read. And i haven't ever seen Crown of Thorns.
