a clean cup...

Ben's water bowl got a bath.  He just got it down to the half way mark today...then I siphoned off enough for a tip over and a scrub down.  Cheers.  71,80,39,0,B

Very nice. Everyone enjoys a clean drinking trough.

My first thought when you posted this was if you had some plants you could water them with the water and all the things growing in the water could be mulch. Waste not, want not.

Did you give up on a companion for Ben?

I tried with 2 surveyors to have one of my places surveyed. No luck. They must be too busy. It is the one with electricity running down the road. I even talked to some builders. But with the rules out there, if the line is on the wrong side of the road, they might not cross over. The other off grid lot I have (the smaller l0 acres) has been surveyed. I hear in 20 years or so they might run water pipes down 118. They did not before because of the earthquakes. (Maybe some of the milder earthquakes are less dangerous than some inner cities now days). Well the future is not necessarily mine (age-wise). I have a good place here and I do not need squatters out there or things vandalized, etc. So I just content myself here. A trip there now and then is o.k. I guess. I could not go out there last year with my new truck because my chihuahua needed home care. He is fine now. But your blog interests me. One can imagine and I have a good movie theatre in my head. I can write novels there and then go back and rewrite the story. I learned a dope dealer, tall, big girl is getting out of Gatesville prison. I can't believe how fast the time has passed. Five years. She hit and killed a motorcycle man who did not pay. His motorcycle friends put up a big cross to him on the side of the road with flowers and notes. The older one gets, the faster time flies by. Many of my acquaintances are gone. McDonalds people here at the lake look like the Walking Dead from drug damage. That is everywhere though.

Ben has a companion now. As long as Javier the javelina keeps coming in for dinner - Ben is pretty happy and it gives him something to look forward every day. Sometimes they even have breakfast together.

I was wondering if Ben still had Javier for a friend. Wish he could have a full time buddy though. Feeding another steer is expensive, but maybe even a dog would do.

FYI - one steer costs about $250/month to feed.
