more parts...

Just got the rest of my parts in.  Somewhere in this pile is a PPG cart waiting to happen.  Although I am kind of winging it, I do have a precise plan in mind.  83,91.61,0,B

Live feed...

Have you been missing the live stream of dinner with Ben?  Broadcasting nightly from 6:30-7:30 PM central time.  How often do you get to see a longhorn steer being mouth fed a carrot?  82,88,55,0,B

Randoff's Big Bend BBQ

My friend Randy De La Fuente has been doing the smoked meat / barbecue thing on Fridays and Saturdays for awhile now, located at Far Flung River Tours.  I don't get out very often and it takes a lot to lure me away from TFL.  This morning, Randy posted a video on Facebook of today's slab of beef brisket and I suddenly got really hungry and just had to try one of his sandwiches.  It tasted even better than it looked!  79,85,48,0,B

road repair

A nice neighbor has been using a bobcat to do some work around his place and brought it out to repair the road damage caused by an inconsiderate neighbor - a trench and berm that creates a new path for water during storms.  Rather than flowing across a wide area, the trench fills and channels all the excess right across the road.  Since the water caught in the trench only lasts about two weeks, it really serves no purpose other than destroying the road.  Since he doesn't have to drive on this portion of the road, he never lifts a finger to repair the damage and the inconvenience it causes to the rest of us who have to pass through here.  I came out ahead of the repair vehicle and pulled all my wood bits I had thrown in the ruts.  Now it is smooth sailing again...till the next rain storm.  76,81,53,0,B

The Frank Chronicles...

Guess who showed up again today?  Turns out when Frank got returned last week, his owner has since decided he didn't want him after all so he just turned him out.  The folks who came out to take him home to his irresponsible owner came out again and are taking him in and will give him a good home.  72,81,60,0,W

Hoop visit...

Long time TFL follower David Hooper (The Hoop) dropped in for a visit yesterday.  It has been four years since he last stopped by.  He brought 10 pounds of carrots - for Ben (and a little something for me).  Ben has never had a carrot nor have I ever even thought of giving him one - even though I constantly feed them to the burros and the rabbits.  Turns out HE LOVES THEM!  Thanks Hoop for enhancing Ben's quality of life.  87,97,56,0,C
