Truss 5 Secured

Cooked a pound of bacon, made a loaf of bread, did laundry down in Study Butte (before the masses arrive for the Chili Cookoff), scooted truss 5 into place and welded it down. Benita is getting to the point now where she follows me around while I'm working. Pretty weird having a longhorn one step behind all day. Nice moonrise tonight. 65,93,36,0

I was going to comment on the Cow following you around. I was watching you work on Truss #5 today, and every time you moved she had to go look and see what you were doing. It's amasing that she can get around in there without getting her horns all tangled up.

Gorgeous moonrise photo. Any chance you might set up a time-lapse series of tomorrow's moonrise? I remember being concerned once that there might be a fire off to the east when a full moon was rising after dark. When I stayed up to see a repeat performance the next night was when I learned that moonrise times from one day to the next vary by a LOT more than sunrise times. Silly me for not paying attention and figuring that one out for myself a lot earlier.

Live your life each day as you would climb a mountain. An occasional glance toward the summit keeps the goal in mind, but many beautiful scenes are to be observed from each new vantage point.

If you'd have waited until tomorrow to do laundry you'd have probably run in to me there. That's on my list for tomorrow as well as stocking up on groceries and I think I'll treat myself to a jug of booze to sip on while the chili cook off is going on. Maybe have my first hangover since I've been here.

I don't know about that last thought of the day? Whiskey sure numbs worries until the next day while working with a hangover seems to cause more of them.

Just be careful that Benita doesn't start looking in your pockets for treats.

You have a way with cameras. And longhorns :o) Hope you have a nice time...eat a bowl for me.

Maybe if you feed Benita in one place (in a container) she will not think you are the proverbial "feed bag". Oh maybe she just likes your "cologne"!

When are you going to make an offer on Benito?
