so much fun...













Mr. Floppy's punching bag came in today for a snack.  I call this burro JR (short for Jack Rockwell - after a friend from Brooklyn).  This poor guy keeps getting kicked in the same spot on his neck...you would think that he would learn to avoid the business end of his nemesis.  I think he knows who his real friend is now - he just figured out it is OK for me to hand feed him today.













I put off a dreaded chore for as long as I could - just had to get started setting the foundation blocks for the north side of the containers.  The west side was a breeze but the east side involved a lot of rock chopping.  I forgot how much "fun" it really wasn't.  90,98,68,0,B

Looks kinda snaky to me. Be careful walking around one of those corners one morning while your mind is on something else.

I encountered a nice big Western Diamondback last week while on a walk in the middle of downtown San Angelo. Whew!

John, did you do anything to secure the containers, to prevent them from moving laterally?

Just my 2 cents. I dont think he is being kicked. Donkey's tend to kick things that are predators, and are considered dangerous territory. But I did a GIS (google image search) for 'fighting donkeys' and I yield these results...

Just my thoughts... But seriously that guy needs to back off of his nemesis a little bit...
