Nice to try and sleep in this morning especially after having to actually get up early and be somewhere yesterday. A long day of classroom work followed by 8 people shooting 50 rounds kinda wore me out. Looked for an easy morning chore and found it by shoveling cow fertilizer for an hour. That was good enough to satisfy my Sunday work ethic so I headed south for some leisurely laundry. After I got 2 loads started, I headed over to the Big Bend Motor Inn for some gas where I spotted a familiar vehicle. Popped inside for lunch and found my buddy Dan Stricklin (in the Field Lab tshirt) and emmy award winning producer Jason Anderson. Dan was out to TFL over 2 years ago when they shot my segment for Texas Country Reporter. They were in town shooting a couple of stories this weekend. They stopped by after lunch to meet Benita and check out the progress.
Mexican night at the GrubShack Sunday Supper. Home in time to check the pond depth while there was still plenty of light. That's Mr. Floppy waiting for me to leave so he can walk down the face of the dam to get a drink. Pond level is down to just under 7' deep. 90,101,66,0,B
