Morning Walk


Toadstools Demise


Adventure Location: Decatur, Al.

Adventure Date: 8/23/2021

Rolling Date: Undecided

The Teams were out in good time this morning with the walk going along well. Suddenly the OFM screeched to a halt again. The red top toadstools were next to us or better phrased what was left of them. Since the photo yesterday they had shrunk and withered down to a yucky blobs with red streaks in them. That was a surprise but it turned out to be the high spot of the day.

The doldrums have officially taken over the area. No pictures were taken today in spite of two meanderings with pictures being the purpose of the meandering.

We are hoping tomorrow to get to play some golf later in the day since the hot muggy mornings with no breeze are miserable.

Our afternoon effort was in rescheduling our general travels when we leave grandkid land. Both Texas and New Mexico very recently changed the Covid protection policies, so we put the leaving date on hold while we work on fully understanding the new covid policies. As of this evening it seems that since the OFM is long time vaccinated and Sierra and the Castle are exempt, the new policies will have no effect on our plans of rolling. But we want to be certain of any restrictions that might cause us troubles.

In the mean time we hope to find some new interesting things to photograph or special things to do for trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Your phrase "long time vaccinated" prompted my comment. We are noticing the protection from the vaccination seems to decline over time (4-6 months?), the same with antibodies that are produced after a covid infection. You could be recommended another dose of vaccine soon. Everybody be careful out there.

    1. J and J is the shot I got. When I last read the "latest" it is not in the booster groups. Thank you for the heads up.

  2. I'm glad to know Sierra and the Castle are exempt. It's also good to know you cannot get it from them.
