Heartland Regional Rally

Thursday 4/28 We indulged a bit and bought a stained glass window for our door.  We’ve seen them at many of the rally’s that we’ve been too and always wanted to get one and this time we finally took the plunge.  They have all kinds of designs…colored or non-colored…whimsical or more serious.  We went with … Continue reading »

We made our way south to I-30 and then headed east toward Little Rock where … Continue reading »

We got a thunderstorm about 4:00 in the morning.  When the actual storm passed by the rain stayed behind and it continued to rain until about 9:15 am…stopping just in time for us to hitch up.  God is good! We lost power about 6:55 am and by 8:30 am when I was ready to make breakfast … Continue reading »

One Day is NOT Enough Time in San Antonio!

My internal gate guard clock went off at 5:00 am but I fought it until 5:30 am when I finally decided I might as well get up and get a few things done as well as enjoy some quiet time. We’d gotten a call on Friday, from the Audie Murphy VA Hospital, asking Michel to … Continue reading »

Travel Day: Cotulla, TX to San Antonio, TX

With our last vehicle of the day passing through the gate at 8:00 pm we retired to the bedroom shortly after…because we could!  We both read/surfed for a while but turned the light off about 9:00 pm. Since we only had a company man down on the pad we didn’t expect much traffic…and we didn’t … Continue reading »

Winding Down….

We received our last load of casing on Friday morning.  (Casing is the pipe that goes down into the well and then the pipe that the oil flows up through goes down into the middle of the casing.)  Knowing that this was our last load of casing kind of put things into perspective!  Our time … Continue reading »

Bad Boys, Bad Boys…Whatcha Gonna Do?

Around 6:00 pm on Tuesday night I heard a loud noise and looked out the living room window to see a huge puff of dust at the entrance to our gate.  An SUV had flown down the road and onto lease road, threw on its brakes and started turning around and there was a sheriff’s … Continue reading »
