Remembering Granny J


Adventure Location:

Decatur, Alabama

Date: September 24, 2023

The morning walk went very well with only one small hot spot to correct. We meandered all over an area near the water taking pictures of anything and everything.

Which brings the OFM to a special memory we have of the lady who took him under her training early in his blog writing in November 2007. She was an older lady in Arizona that could not get out and about for long distances and big adventures, BUT she managed to publish an interesting blog nearly every day for years. She went by Granny J from Arizona and her blog was Walking Prescott at

She tutored the OFM on many issues of blogging way back then. She passed on several years ago but her blog still exists if you would like to read one of the old ones of blogging. She will not be forgotten by this OFM.

It was Burger King for lunch and local friend Jerry for visiting. We spent nearly three hours talking of many things. Sometimes it is good to sit and discuss life in general and what plans are developing. He is a nice fellow that is very local for his whole life.

And last but not least is a new coloring named Moon Light Valley. A small section 4”x6” was cut from an adult coloring book and modified slightly to produce this painting. The the OFM went to work on it and this was his result.

We hope everyone enjoys the coloring because we have lots more of them coming. And we are starting a new phase of art work so it might get more exciting or strange. We are going to get rested for a long day of trying to have tooooo much fun tomorrow.


  1. Speaking of old blogs, what about Billy Bob? Is he still with us?

    1. He never answered my emails after he moved to Georgia years ago. So I know nothing.

  2. I am glad you are having nice memories of Granny J. She was a bit of a mentor to me too. I wish I had had a chance to meet her in person.
