Dick Cain was out riding the range today with his son and his brother. They pushed the longhorns back away from the highway...most of them ended up right in my front yard. This is the group that settled in to guard the Field Lab entrance.
Well the heat is back....Cleaned house then searched for the software disc for my Canon G9 to no avail - must dig deeper. During my supply run yesterday, I stocked up on more bread making parts. Started another batch of alfalfa for supplementing my dinner menu and some wheat berries for my second attempt at the perfect loaf. My IT guy in the UK sent me this link for Easy Crusty Bread which I mixed up tonight for baking tomorrow. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wx0HXr-C_wQ The next sprout bread attempt will be on Thursday.
Lots of puffy clouds in the area this afternoon. Plenty of spotty downpours all over Brewster county and finally a brief one right on top of me for about a half hour at 8PM. 85,104,79, .06",B
