Really Busy Today

Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas

It has been a day of new things with a couple of things very important. 

Number one on the list is the new grand daughter is now going to be born on July 3. The latest exam caused the doctor to decide that the baby was ready to be born. It certainly makes for extra excitement in the day and changes of plans.

Number two  on the list is my old friend (93) Ivan and the OFM had a great visit today. Ivan had a stroke a couple of weeks ago and is back in his assisted living home. He is doing really well and we had a great time for a couple of hours today. He is one really GRAND fellow to visit. The two hours went by in a flash. The Teams are really excited about some ideas that Ivan presented for us to consider about our future travel plans.

Number three is first thing this morning the OFM caught two fat speckled trout that were 18“ each. It has been a good while since he has caught any fish much less two nice ones. They were released after measuring.

Number four is the OFM swapped Internet Explorer out for Google Chrome and his computer is running a good bit smoother now. The swap went fairly easy for a computer illiterate like the OFM. We are enjoying the better performance for sure.

There were several other minor excitements that made for a really full day of trying to have tooooo much fun.

  1. I had to switch over to Google Chrome a few years ago because blogger wouldn't run on IE for me. I like GC much better.

  2. I hate to have to install any software updates these days. I just find it difficult to understand the instructions - never happened like that in the past, but it must be part of my brain that doesn't comprehend technology!

    What excitement for you to be looking forward to your new granddaughter.

  4. Wow, Barney, you had a great day! I do hope you will put a picture of the baby on here for us non Facebook people! Guess she might show up early, if she is ready to be born now. I remember your talking about good visits with Ivan before. Good times with a friend. I still use I.E. Don't understand how to "swap it out" for Google Chrome. Afraid I will regret it and not be able to go back.

    1. To get Chrome just type in Chrome in the IE search function and you will find a free download and install button. It took about 45 minutes due to me ignorance but it went flawlessly and everything but passwords and logins transferred over. Most of all I really like the new style better than IE.
      I do not do Facecrook. Pics will be here when they are available.
