Ginger, Washer Error & Final Luncheon

While I was at the shack Monday afternoon the skies got dark, the wind picked up and the air cooled off…not a good sign.  A few hours later the rain came…just as the ‘big wigs’ that were on-site visiting decided to leave.  It wasn’t just misting a little…it was out right pouring.  Since we are … Continue reading »

The ‘Itch’ Is On!

We’re just plugging along.  Michael’s been doing the majority of the time at the shack but I’ve been trying to give him time off 2 or 3 days a week. They are still trying to finish up on the 2nd well but seem to have a road block every time they turn around.  Hopefully by … Continue reading »

WooHoo! Unexpected Days Off!

Sunday 4/5 The wild flowers are blooming like crazy all over this area!  They line the sides of the dirt roads and highways, flourish in the farmers fields and even grown amongst the weeds around our coach that need to be eliminated very badly!  I couldn’t help but take a short walk down our dirt … Continue reading »

I also made myself an appointment to see our doctor in San Antonio to … Continue reading »

Unfortunately, Michael’s class being at … Continue reading »

Establishing A Routine & A Birthday

Days are starting to become routine.  We get up about 5:00 am and I get Michael’s lunch box (breakfast, lunch and snacks) together while he gets ready.  He leaves about 5:40 am for his long strenuous 9 tenths of a mile drive.  He gets back home anywhere from 5:50 to 6:05ish…just depending on when Jeremy … Continue reading »

Back In The Saddle And A BIG Secret Revealed!

Wednesday 5/25 Michael still has several appointments with the VA…the first of which was today.   Of course in order to make that appointment he had to take the day off.  Which meant he had to find someone to work for him…a relief gate guard.  He didn’t have to look any further than his original … Continue reading »

March Madness, Lunch(es), Ginger & Brahmas

Tuesday 3/17 Foggy, foggy morning….so foggy that the fog still hadn’t completed lifted until after 10:00 am! For the last couple of days I’ve had little to no internet access so I’ve been watching a lot of TV.  This morning I watched Gladiator and really enjoyed it.  Didn’t think I would but I was quite … Continue reading »
