Easy Please Day


Adventure Location: Decatur, Al

Today's Date: 7-22-2022

The morning started a little rugged so we chose that today the exercise walk would be gentle and more about taking pictures than speed. It turned out to be a wise choice. One of the first of many photos we took was of this bright blue sky with red flowers accenting the fence line.

Along the gentle route we chose was lots of vegetation and pictures. Lots of the water places were extremely slick and we got way too many reflection pictures off the water around here. This one seemed to be the best one to us.

By now the OFM's shot location of the covid booster was hurting him quite a bit as well as being a bit warm around the shot location. We took more ibuprofen when we got home from the walk.

Near one hedgerow we found a bunch of shrubs putting out berries/ seeds /whatever they are getting ready for the fall season to hit in a few weeks.

We dropped by Academy Sports to see about some new walking/hiking shoes and they were on clearance for $99.99. But they did not have my size.

We happened to hear a rumor while looking for the shoes that we checked out when we got back home. Of all things Academy is controlled by the same group that runs Whataburger now.

To top off the happenings today, when we returned to the Castle the OFM went to checking the internet and found the right size and color Merrell shoes for the OFM for a delivered price of about $60. That is over forty dollars cheaper than Academy on “clearance”.

Seems like it can be cheaper to have some things shipped to you than drive to a store to get them. That has happened a few times in the last few months to the OFM Teams. It is nice when it gives us more money for trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Changing world when your hamburger for lunch and walking shoes have that close a relationship!

  2. Businesses wonder why we shop online eh? I have had the same things happen with shoes myself. Had them delivered the next day, free shipping and saved half the cost at the store.

  3. Once again I had trouble commenting with my Brave Browser. I had to click on the Lion in the address line, and then allow cookies and trackers, in order to comment. This is the only blog where this happens.

    Anyway, I really enjoy seeing the lush vegetation you have in the Gulf area.

    1. Sorry about your comment difficulty. None of your trouble is my doing that I can tell. Thanks for letting me know and I will watch for anything odd. By the way we are about 500 miles north of the Gulf of Mexico but in the marsh along the Tennessee River.
