Question Of The Day

6:30 A.M.   This quitting smoking just ain't fun y'all. It's been 10 days now since I've had a smoke and I've all but ate the door knobs off the house, it's like I can't ever get full. I'm supposed to lose 15lbs not gain 20 pounds.

3:30 P.M.- Just came home, been out to Fredericksburg killing time, as long as I'm not setting in the house I really don't feel like eating so much. Had a nice little drive just to get out for awhile. I think after the doctor visit next week it might be time for a trip out to the place in Terlingua. I need to get away for awhile. Hopefully the doc will tell me I can get back to working my butt off, I have a lot of pick slinging to do out there. I did almost a mile worth of trails on my place with that ole pick and rake, its not bad if you catch it right after a rain, one swing of the pick and you can dig up most of the creosote bush's out there.

I found this weather map that is pretty handy. I guess its run off of Goggle Earth, you can zoom right onto you place and see how close the rain is to you.

Speaking of rain, I just received this from Brewster County, looks like Alpine is getting it.
Flooding conditions exist. Please use caution at low water crossings.

It's time to go prop the ole feet up, I've been up since 3:30 this morning.

    1. R and D, I'll have to dig around for that that music I don't remember who it was. I'll get back with you on that.
      Thanks for stopping by.

    2. The music on that slide show is,
      "Desert Dreams by Arnold Mitchem"
      I bought the CD in Big Bend
