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!

Pepper / Pad / Sunset
Had another visit from Pepper Sunday. The new family had her at the legion (untied) and she slipped away to pay me a visit. As usual I walked out the door and there she was. She was panting hard and looked thirsty so I filled up the dogie water bowl. Also had some brisket that I was about to chunk because of the age so she got to eat well while she was here. After a short visit I decided to take her down to the legion not knowing she came from there and when I headed out to the falcon / trike she stood in front of the car door expecting me to open it and let her in. I fooled her and took the trike instead. As always before she loved to chase along with me when I was riding the trike. When we got to the legion there were 3 of the 10 remaining new pups the new owner's Dane had left and I think Pepper isn't getting as much attention as she used to so more than likely that was the reason for her to visit me. She normally won't do that when the girls are where she is and they were all three there.
Got the foundation poured for the new fridge hut, but unfortunately the concrete I had didn't go near as far as I thought it would. Looks like I'll have to pickup a couple of bags when I go south tomorrow to finish it off. I decided to put it on the west side of the trailer near the door so as not to have to go far to get to the contents of the fridge. The trailer will shade the hut until probably around 11:00 AM and hopefully I'll have it and the fridge well enough insulated to allow it to work good in the afternoons.
Another sunset from last night. It was pretty cloudy most of the day yesterday and we had a chance of rain, but unfortunately didn't get so much as a sprinkle. I don't think it is in the forecast again at least for the next 5 days.
