My attempt to make it to my 10 acres in Terlingua Ranch and make a go of living on it. From the start it hasn't gone good at all, but I'm hopeful things will turn around!

The Almost Blind Blogger
Near disaster folks. We are supposed to have a 30% chance of rain so while getting the car cover down to cover the falcon the tie cord caught the camera and sent it plummeting two bunk stories to the floor. (about 5 feet) When I tried to check it out I kept getting a General Failure message in the viewer. I finally managed to make use of the hammer again and get it functioning again. Hope it holds up because we all know that a Blogger without a camera is almost blind.
Photo #1 is the tarp shade I spent day before yesterday under. Couldn't use it yesterday because of an occasional high gust of wind in an otherwise almost calm HOT day. I toughed it out in here until there was some shade in front of the dungeon.
Photo #2 is the picture I just took after working the camera over with the hammer. Looks like I'm not blind after all. Oh... The Range Rover belongs to OGT. He plans to start building down here soon and we have a deal going to get him from the airport in Midland when he can come down here.He'll let me know a few days before I'll need to pick him up at the airport and I'll be able to drive up to Odessa a couple of days early to visit family. Then I'll pick him up and head back down this way. Works for me...
