After turning off the light around 8:00 pm the night before you’d think we would have been awake pretty early….NOT!  When the phone rang at 10:00 am we were out cold.  I got up at that point.  Michael, however, slept 3 more hours…getting up at 1:00 pm.  I’m guessing we needed the sleep as we … Continue reading »

Moving Day: Dilley, TX To San Antonio, TX

I forgot to mention the awesome ‘Welcome’ sign that Dora gifted us with when she came by for one last visit yesterday.  It’s hand painted by Dora, herself!  She mentioned putting it outside but I don’t know that I want it to get dirty and/or wet…might just have to find a place for it in … Continue reading »

Hitch Itch Has Set In…Badly

Monday 3/6 After Michael’s busy Sunday night dealing with sand truck after sand truck my morning started off pretty quiet….that is until nineteen vehicles arrived at the same time about 8:00 am.  Fifteen of those were big frac trucks (pumps and such), 2 were supervisors in pick ups and 2 were vans that transport the … Continue reading »

Gearing Up for the Frac

Michael did quite a bit of errand running last week trying to get things accomplished before the frac has it’s hold on us.  One of the things he did was take the coach tire that we had a flat on to a shop to see if it was repairable…it wasn’t.  So he left it there … Continue reading »
