new kid on the block...
Ahhhhhh....Spring time. According to the Field Lab, Spring has officially arrived in the SW Texas desert. Benita returned and the Bluebonnets are blooming all along the highways. On top of that - the first new calf of 2010 showed up today with her momma. I named the calf Shannon after my friend from the Ghost Town who is also know to locals as the Little Brown Girl.
Got all the flanges finished today and welded 4 of 43 into place. Had to put up a shield to protect Benita from the welding glare as she insisted on keeping tabs on the progress. Lured her away with a bale of hay which she scratched her head on for awhile then proceeded to munch on. Later in the afternoon, I did her portrait with mini Benita.
Just as I was finishing up the sky monkey routine - my latest visitors showed up for a tour. This is the first group to come out that read this months article about the Field Lab in the Big Bend Gazette. My new best friends are Mel, T.J. and Pam. 51,71,28,0
