The first thing after breakfast this morning we knew we needed to hit the grocery store and do some restocking on $22 of stuff we were low on and forgot to go buy yesterday. So we hit up Walmart about 0930 and went in there with the other 345,782 people all unmasked except for the OFM it seemed. The shopping went very well and we were back at Sierra in very short order. Leaving Sierra at the far side of the parking lot until our return and groceries loaded was slightly less than 30 minutes. Yep the OFM can really move when food is involved.

Back at the Castle the food was stored as normal and something caused the OFM to start thinking of the move planned for next weekend. We got on the computer checking news articles etc about the area. The first thing we checked is the lake level. Well it is extremely low and difficult to access. The lake and fishing is basically the whole story for being in that area for us. Also we did not get a good feeling about border incidents at Falcon Heights. After a long time considering things we made the decision to cancel the trip down there for now.

Notice was turned in here in Rockport we would be staying another month. Of course the 75F days with bright sun make this a nice area frequently. So most of the rest of the day the OFM has been trying to figure out what to do and when to do it. This area has been way nicer than usual the last few weeks so that works into the equation. We are up in the air on what is next in the traveling. Rolling on northward into cold weather is not acceptable.

And that is the summation on this tumultuous day of trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Merry Christmas, Barney. Glad you are staying another month.

    1. Thank you very much. Stay safe and have tooooo much fun.

  3. From one of those who refuses to wear a mask, Happy Holidays. I do enjoy your various meanderings, specially when you catch a fish. Do you ever keep one and eat it? I also enjoy some of the paintings that you show us.

    1. I used to catch and eat them a lot but in my current lifestyle, I seldom keep most of them. Many of them are given to folks that do want to mess with the cleaning etc. Every now and then I do have a painting I like but most are just another case of what did I learn this time.

  4. Looks like the forecasters are predicting a warm and dry month for you (and me, some 300 odd miles to the north). https://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/predictions/long_range/lead14/
    They also have 3 month predictions, but I'm scared to look, in case it is the same. Wildfires and drougt are not on my list of favorites..

  5. I think following your "vibs" about the border move was a good thing. It's a crazy world right now. Be safe, have fun.
