The freezer was crying for help so the OFM got busy with defrosting it for the first time in a year and a half. It is a nuisance job but with the freezer nearly empty it was a perfect time to do the deed,

We got it done without any serious OOPSES. That is always a good thing. Now with the shopping trip for in the morning planned we should fill it up fairly well with good eating food.

During the defrosting the OFM's right elbow reminded that he had “pulled” something in it yesterday and to take it easy to allow healing. So three ibuprofen tablets went down the throat to help with the healing. This evening it feels like the joint is about 85% well so we will still be careful with it.

The day had lots of scattered and wild cloud shapes floating around, so the OFM went out on a cloud hunting/photographing trip.  It was very successful and now we have a lot of work to cull and select cloud shapes for painting reference in the future.

It should be a lot of work and a lot of fun both. Seems like we always have plenty of things that need doing, especially with spring and travel time coming up soon. It seems like there is way more to do this year than ever before in the last fourteen years of trying to have tooooo much fun while Rving.


  1. I certainly know something about defrosting fridges. Glad yours went smoothly.

  2. Never really minded defrosting a freezer but we now have one that does it by itself so I'm even lazier than I was before.

  3. So there's one thing without a layer of ice. Well done. If you've looked at the weather forecast (which I haven't for your area), you can see that there may be some ice to the north of you. I am dreading it. And envying you the clear Gulf water.....
