lost a day

Lost my Saturday due to another extra night swamped out.  Got stuck at The Mission Lodge with no wifi.  Had to resort to regular TV for my evening entertainment.  Forgot how painful it was to watch a movie with commercials every 10 minutes.

Before I finally headed home Sunday afternoon, I had a chance to visit with Dr. Doug for the first time in a very long time.  ATV accidents at top of the conversation list.  His brother Jon had a very nasty one just Saturday.  He flipped over backwards and the vehicle landed on top of him.  He was taken by ambulance to Alpine then airlifted to Lubbock with a broken nose and several broken ribs and so far has spent 2 days in ICU.  45,57,48,0,B

Maybe the horse is the best ATV after all.

I see trouble under that blue tarp.
All I got to do to see some more is walk in the next room.

Gosh John - that is a great picture of you. You look Ten years younger than when Sam, Don, and I - last visited you! Probably because you have not been living in the sun so much - because of you little difficulty with that leg.

Dr. Doug? The famous Terlingua therapist? Good to hear you and his brother both surivived those 4-wheel broncos.

Doing the same thing over and over ..... okay, well, I guess everyone in the ATV conversation is aware of other transportation modes

Eugenics. The drug industry. I see on the news today that Marquette, MI and Sault Ste. Marie, MI has had the most snow so far in the U.S. That's where I stayed for so many years with my children. Even my adopted parents could not reach me there in the winter. That's where my former husband who I met at age 15 lured me before he left for Thailand. Make lemonade out of lemons. So I got my B.A. there. A beautiful, healthy place. A lot of snow. You see God has a plan and plans change.

I believe the good Dr. Doug did counseling on the Terllingua porch while sipping on or gulping a beer. Well that excludes me because my DNA tests show I cannot imbibe. Anyway my tests came out normal. 😄 Anyway he reminds me of my former husband who I was not supposed to have children with (by parents idea) or who's children were not supposed to have children (and did not). All kinds of ideas in this country and I cannot control people, places, or things anyway---only my decisions.

If you stay on the ATV for at least 8 seconds I believe you qualify for a Belt Buckle.
