Flour Tortillas

Threats of thunderstorms all day but only got a spinkle again....was able to get out during a cloudy period and dig two more holes and pour concrete for the final 2 guy wire anchors for wind turbine mount #4. Checked in at the Ranch Supply Store with my friend Julie and she requested a Pepino Swamp Cooler for her RV. She and her husband Whitebear have been spending up to $400 per month on propane for their generator to power their air conditioner. My swamp cooler design works without a generator using only a small amount of battery power from a solar charged power system and will keep their habitat just as cool.

Spent the late afternoon preparing a batch of flour tortilla mix...cooked up 9 tortillas for the next couple of dinners. How often do folks in the "real world" have time to devote 2 hours of their day to do this - and then have the time to photograph the results with a rainbow in the background? Thats why I'm here!

Tortillas and Rainbows? Answer is always yes. Well played.

I'm enjoying reading these "archives" of your blog.

This is my first comment on your blog. I just learned of it in an article I saw in "Texas Monthly" magazine. You are doing what I would love to be able to do if.....I were younger (I'm 70), in better health, family situation would allow and I had your courage. In the meantime, I will enjoy reading about you and your life there in Terlingua. God bless and wishing you health and happiness.
