Ran into Dizzy Dick from yesterdays comments at the GrubShack this morning. He and his wife Ruth were on their way out of the Big Bend. I insisted that they come out for the tour before they left the area. Had a great time showing them around and Ruth is now my official Texas mother to worry about me out here in the desert.

Lots of longhorns in this morning. Spent almost 2 hours trying to bond with my future steer, Benito. Slowly followed him around till I could get close enough for him to sniff my hand - finally got close enough to give him a scratch and he was under my spell - for today. Will have to keep working on him while he is young if I ever hope to train him to ride someday.
Way too windy to get any welding done so filled the day with errands and visits.... and longhorns and burrows. 67,88,50,0,G
