Another beautiful day with cool temps most of the day. The OFM had a better than usual 1.5 mile brisk walk this morning with very little joint pain until right at the end. So we stopped instead of trying to push things a little.
The remaining healing from the dog bite of two weeks ago is going well. The scab is slowly coming off in pieces. Today during the walk a piece of scab came partially loose and hung on the pants leg. That was not nice but we got shed of that piece of scab and things went well the rest of the walk. At this healing rate we expect to have that bite event history by next week. We are certainly glad the bite did not amount to more than a skin removal.
Back to the walk events. Nothing really special happened but we did get pictures of a few things that might turn into paintings of natural items. Speaking of natural items, some of the live oaks in this park have black acorns.
This is the only place in the USA we can recall seeing black acorns growing on the trees. You never know what you will find in Texas!
Some mis-behaving items of the Teams needed some light sledge hammering to get them to behave properly. We did not want the neighbors to hear the screaming from tuning up the items, so we took them down to the Beach Park to do the corrective action.
As you can see the view was nice and the sun wonderful and nobody around to here the screams. It took about fifteen minutes to tighten the pivot pin on several metal rings that open and close. Now they are very well behaved and doing a wonderful job for the rest of the Team members. It is nice to have a beautiful day like that to work outside.
We did get a new painting started this afternoon. With a little luck it will be finished by Christmas. It is nice to look forward to another painting for trying to have tooooo much fun.
