watch and pray

We are all prisoners of earthly desire...
Matthew 26:41  
Watch and pray, 
that ye enter not into temptation: 
the spirit indeed is willing, 
  but the flesh is weak.

curb appeal...

Tired of looking at this mess every time I drive up.  The years old clutter will soon be gone.  91,95,70,0,B

the watershed...

Big storm just grazed TFL with .03" of rain but it hammered the watershed area east of me - white water rapids flowing through my canyon now.  I have a feeling the part of my road closer to the highway is in pretty bad condition.  Drone road check in the morning.  Good news is no more rain in the forecast for the next 10 days.   71,88,69, .03",B

Don't be a lost sheep...

Psalms 119  173 Let thine hand help me; for I have chosen thy precepts.  174 I have longed for thy salvation, O Lord; and thy law is my delight.  175 Let my soul live, and it shall praise thee; and let thy judgments help me.  176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments.

jinxed it...

It has been almost a year since I have had enough rain at once to suck water out of the arroyo.  Prepped to pump this afternoon but the storm pooped out.  67,88,71, .15",B

Happy Fourth Of July

FYI - you are welcome on our shores if you come here legally.  It should be noted that you will have a much more difficult time if you sneak across the border.   It is certainly sad that your country sucks so bad that you feel a need to escape but you need to be aware that there are A LOT of people wanting to come here from countries that suck so you will just have to wait your turn in line.  Many of those entering the US don't have a legitimate asylum claim and many of them are outright criminals so you can blame them for the heightened security measures at our border.  It also helps if you have some money (hint - don't spend thousands on someone to smuggle you into the country).  By being allowed to become legal citizens here it is imperative that you become a contributing member of society so the tax payers won't have to support you in your new life in America.  It is also greatly appreciated if you bother to learn our local language.  92,99,76,0,B

the road paved with good intentions...

Since I have been out here, the county has resurfaced HWY 118 three times.  It seems to happen every four years.  I avoided going to Alpine until they finished this time since I got some cracks in my windshield from flying rocks last time when I made the trip while they were working on it.  A different contractor did this resurfacing and they did a really good job and finished the 60 mile stretch from just north of the ranch road all the way to Alpine in about a week.  91,101,71,0,B
