Did another road survey this morning.....the ranch patched my road - now a little wider for some reason but still an inch deeper. Good news (?) is, we probably won't get any more rain this year to wash it out again. That last gusher was just enough to feed the seeds. Plants are popping up all over the place out here.
Unfortunately, my business in Odessa did not coincide with new business that needed to be attended to. Had to make an Alpine run today. The one hour ride seems like a breeze compared to 3 1/2 to the big O. Did my thing(s) then swung by my new favorite spot - La Yarda behind the Murphy Street Raspa Co. My friends Cristina and Victor have created a beautiful kid friendly restaurant/hangout behind their precious Raspaland establishment. Like a McDonald's with a playground - without the poison. Check out La Yarda on facebook. Better yet - check it out in person one block south of the train station. 80,92,58,0,B
