We were already on the trail this morning when a neighbor pulled up in his golf cart to let us know that just up the trail it was raining and we might want to head back for the Castle. We thanked him and went ahead to see what was what. Within fifty feet we found the rain, got turned around and headed for the Castle.

The rain was pretty significant but quickly tapered off as we headed back to the Castle. By the time we got to the Castle there was no rain at all.

Back in the Castle the OFM brought up the radar and decided we would just stay in and wait it out. Wait it out turned out to be about eight hours later. Here is what it looked like out the window a few minutes after we returned. It is a nice slow rain.

As luck would have it in a few minutes a major rain and lightening storm hit. By late afternoon the radar showed we were about to get some clearing skies with in an hour so we took another picture of the pouring down rain. It was bad enough that the camera could not figure out what to focus on.

So we just went on about art things most all the day long.

Here is a funny from supper last night. We got a chicken fingers plate from Jack's. It had french fries on it and the OFM grabbed a few of the Red Ketchup individual serving packs and we headed for a table. The first package was opened and the ketchup squeezed out onto the fries. WHAT IS THAT STUFF? Was the OFM's first thought.

As it turns out the strawberry jelly in individual packs has a red package that is very close to the ketchup package. We now had strawberry jelly on part of the fries. The OFM went back and swapped out the unopened packages.

The rest of the fries got the ketchup as originally planned. Then mid meal the OFM picked up a strawberry fry and gave it a try. Now we have a new preference for what to use on the fries in the future. It was really wonderful. That turned the rain soaked day into one of trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Strawberry fries eh? Thanks for the tip!

  2. Thanks for the chuckle. Too funny how we find stuff out.
    Here's one from a childhood friend - Ketchup on potato chips.
    Her comment: Well you put in on french fries and they are potatoes. My son tried it and now has named it after her.
    Not sure about the jelly fries. We used to dip them in a chocolate shake.

    1. Thank you. always something for trying to have tooooo much fun.

  3. That was laugh out loud funny. Now I'm wondering if I will try that. :)

  4. Lots of new favourites start as as a mistake.
    Glad you finished the day by having tooooo much fun.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
