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 New Me / Memorial Day
I was getting sick and tired of the beard and scroungy hair so yesterday afternoon I got out my clippers and went to work. Seems that the beard alone was enough to do in the clippers because when I got started on my head they weren't cutting worth a darn. It was a real mess but nothing I could do with it,but went to the legion and one of the member's girlfriend took pity on me and went home for her clippers. She couldn't find them so returned with scissors and was able to do a good job in straightening out the mess. Sure is a lot cooler, but I guess I'd better be careful not to get a sun burned face where the beard was and also the top of my head and neck! I kept the mustache because I've had one since I got out of the Army.
On another note they are having a Memorial day deal at the Legion today and I was asked to help out by slopping beans or something like that so will HOPEFULLY remember to take the camera and post pictures of that tonight. Some of the local musicians are supposed to play so it should be fun and also get a meal out of the deal.
Went back and the entertainment was top notch.
By the time the entertainment got started most of the crowd had left and a few bikers showed up to take up the slack.
