one sheet

Good cow day today.  So nice to have my buddies hanging out this time of year.  This was the view when I came back from breakfast.  Got one sheet of roofing up today...took a long GrubShack break...then finished missed screws along the high side of the roofing while it was too windy for more poly.  Each panel takes 36 screws.  I'm 1/3rd of the way through a total of 972 screws. 

30% chance of an isolated thunderstorm tomorrow....I will be happy with a sprinkle.  59,73,40,0,B

Really good news from the Big Bend on NPR today.  The Boquillas crossing into Mexico will be re-opened - scheduled for April 2012.  http://www.npr.org/2011/01/07/132729219/Big-Bend-Border-Crossing-To-Reopen

Great news. In '74 a group of us students from NTSU (UNT) camped at BB for several days on our spring break and crossed to Boquillas for Tecates and tequilas a few times. It was a lotta fun. There were some hot springs right across the river too that were nice to lounge in. Very memorable experience for a 20 year old.

That's awesome. I can't wait to visit Boquillas again. The people there are great. I'm very happy for them.

It looks like bovine happy hour over at your place. I hope they all had a good time. Nice of you to host their gathering.

Excellent news about the border crossing. We got a nugget of the news when we were down there in November. So glad that it's out in the open now, and official. That bi-national park can't happen soon enough. I've been itching to get over to Sierra del Carmen since first laying eyes on that awesome escarpment. Can't wait to eat some tacos and drink a Carta Blanca in old Boquillas!
