About time you took a day off.your in good company i see..bb
It appears you had a Billy Bob day....do'n nutt'n. But I guess that's Ok since you're the boss. Or is Benita the boss??? And just WHO are all them visitors? I suppose Benita invite them for pancakes this morning.Rest well young man, ya got trusses to build tomorrow.
that is a great shot. I can't believe how green it is there for this time of year. From my Austin POV anything that ain't brown and dead looks great to me.
so what is the verizon thing in the background?
what determines whether the longhorn horn takes that extra twist? i see benita is the only one in that photo with it. sex? age? passed down genetically?
hey John, I got a pic on my blog with california longhorns. maybe bennita can find a husband there.hmmm good Idea LH(long horn )Harmony.com
seth-see 26 July 2009 entry entitled 'OK so far'jw-so nice to see Benita. I love her.
I have also noticed the twist in Benita's horns. It does look unique.
I envy and admire your lifestyle. You are an amazing human being John. The "Sunday Brunch" shot is incredible, very moving. Benita is muy bonita! I'd love to arrange a visit to The Field Lab with my two chitlins one of these days.
Jesse, you've answered your own question. The twist in the horns is a genetic factor. Check out the Wikipedia entry for "Texas Longhorn (cattle) and they tell you that horn characteristics are a primary breeding criteria.
Heck even Benita needs a few friends.
No words needed for this post. Another great photo and Benita lives up to her name. I like to think that she's bringing her friends by to see all the work you're doing on her place. She's proud of her human,he's got talent, and she wants to show him off.@Buzzardcheater - you're not kidding about the green. Georgetown just went to mandatory water restrictions (it's about time). It's brown and hot around here, and now the lakes are running out of water.
czardastx-Makes you wonder why we dont just have year round restrictions on water here in Texas. Maybe if everyone just learned (or forced) to conserve water we would not have nearly the water issues we have.
@texascowpunk - John seems to be doing well without being hooked up to a water supply. Seeing first hand what he's able to do with limited water just shows all of us what's possible. Of course John does have the ultimate Xeriscaped property of anyone I know, and that cuts down his water use for landscaping to zero.
