Early morning run up north. Ran into my friends Debbie and Mark at the Alpine Farmers Market. They run Little Red Wagon - Alpine's largest year round organic growers. Boiling up some of their funky sweet potatoes for dinner tonight. Placed an order for more "carbon heavy" concrete products for the courtyard to be delivered next week. Also picked up snacks for my favorite longhorn.
Got home about 2 to find about 16 longhorns lounging in the shade - I think they must have known I'd been shopping for them. As long as they were here - I gave the group a snack. My new best friends from Houston stopped by this afternoon for the FL tour. I ran into Tonya and Shawn down in Study Butte a couple of days ago and invited them out. They have a desert refuge way out in the Solitario. 61,81,40,0,C
