Had my civilization fix quickly then ran errands around town. Noticed that the rock star ride I saw months ago in Alpine is for sale now. Don't think it's quite right for a Field Lab road show so I think I will pass. Picked up more free windows from my friends Suzy and Alec. They are my (oldest) friends in Alpine because Suzy used to work at the Antelope Lodge when I first came to the area. I stopped by their antique store on the way out of town to make a purchase - it was the least I could do after getting 9 windows from them. Found this little knick-knack from India that ought to enhance my grill servings.
When I came back out my dirt road I noticed Dick Cain's truck and horse trailer on the road. Saw him and his son rounding up more longhorns - was worried that Benita might have gotten caught in the group since I only left her one small snack before I bugged out. As I drove up my driveway, there she was in the shade right in front of my house. She got a BIG snack and 5 gallons of water for waiting for me to return.
