A much improved OFM got in a brisk morning walk with little wobbling and nearly no pain. It was a big surprise. Then a bit after lunch another single ibuprofen tablet was taken and he has been doing very well until now. But with only two tablets to cover the day we feel like the improvement was up to the over 80% level and it was wonderful. So tomorrow we should be in even better shape than today.
Today was a very busy day. After the morning walk we hit up Walmart for a few food items. As we entered the store the display of bright flowers caught our attention. Some of the flowers were very pretty. Here is one of them.
The OFM does like painting flowers.
The store was crowded and we wondered why. Then when we stopped by the beach park we took this picture.
We had not noticed that this weekend was kite festival weekend. The crowds were serious and large. Thank goodness they wanted to stay near the beach with the rest of the mob. The kite area was just across the street from the beach park entrance which made for some serious congestion at that intersection.
The kite vendors were flying kites in the 20+ mph winds to attract customers. Here was a few of the kites in the air near the beach.
The OFM was feeling so good tonight he decided to do a stir fry for supper.
The stir fry part had cauliflower, bell pepper, onion, potatoes, carrot and broccoli in it. The meat part of the meal was boneless, skinless chicken (eggs) scrambled with black pepper for spice. The whole assembly was outstandingly delicious to the OFM. He needs to remember to do more cooking when he is feeling decent.
We also did some changes to the OFM Fishing Equipment that helped a bunch. We changed the fishing line on one rod from 10 pound braid to 8 pound monofilament. The braid was doing just fine but was so thin the OFM was having a real problem with his fingers being able to tell if he was holding the line or not. Ten pound braid is about the same diameter as 2 pound mono but a lot more limp. The new line is a diameter mono that the OFM can feel with his fingers and tie good knots. Good knots is really important when fishing. Having knots come untied when a nice fish is on the line is not a great way of trying to have tooooo much fun.
