Back to basics today....feeding my rabbit greenhouse guardians, cow, and burro. Made a late afternoon run down to the Ghost Town for Benita water and spied what I think is the first bluebonnet bloom along HYW 118. Record setting cold snap and draught conditions are gonna make it tough on all the plants out here. While I waited for the water to siphon out - I repaired a cow-chewed line to my IP cam that is now visible again from my dot org website.
As long as I got all these new friends visiting my blog, I thought I should pass along a link to a very good friend and neighbor of mine out here. Dan is roughing it in the desert just like me but with a totally different mission. Not the typical outback blogger, but a man who certainly deserves attention for his efforts. His calling is to help kids in trouble.... underage kids trapped in the adult criminal justice system. Please give his blog a look...these kids are doomed without Dan's help. http://wandervogeldiary.wordpress.com/ 69,82,48,0,C
