Good Alpine run today....got just about everything on the long list - it gets revised as I'm shopping. Made a run to Marfa to check out a feed store but they didn't have Benita's favorite blend. Just as well, as she headed out NW of the Field Lab yesterday afternoon which usually means she won't be back for awhile. Problem is we didn't get good rain recently so there is no grass growing out here - yet. Got more range feed and a bale of coastal just in case she comes back soon. She will be 22 on April 5th so I have to be ready for a party.
Recently, I connected on Facebook with a woman that was married for a couple of years to an old college roommate and best friend of mine - Parry Wilvers. Natalie Wilson Schorr http://www.ottoblotto.blogspot.com/ moved on and is still the brilliant artist I briefly met over 20 years ago....except she no longer smokes a pipe. I saw some "dolls" she has been making and asked her to make a couple of longhorns for me. She just finished them and they are on their way to the Field Lab as we speak. Parry and I are due to hook up next month when he comes to San Antonio on a business trip. The past is a freaky thing indeed... 73,95,38,0
