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!

Saturday there was a feed at the Legion and I do believe it was the largest crowd I've seen there so far. All of the tables were full during the meal and about four of us sat outside in the cool wind to eat. One of the guys (Dennis) had a tripod setup with a large cross section of a tree trunk on it for a target and we threw tomahawks and knives at it. That is a very addictive thing and I plan to build my own here to practice. I actually got pretty darned good at it.The actual targes is a playing card right in the center of the wood and Juan managed to get a bull's eye on that throw. Scoring goes like this. Hitting the wood target anywhere other than the card is one point. Hitting the card is two points and cutting a piece off the card gets you three points.
Picture above is a couple of the women line dancing to the music. There were a number of musicians there and they took turns playing and singing and some times joined in with each other.
And then... One of the local Sheriff's deputies (Paul) showed up with his guitar and finished up the entertainment by playing and singing. I think he missed his calling because he is a hell of a musician and singer.
Lee supplied the pig for the feed and it was cooked under ground in a 55 gallon barrel.
Needless to say everyone had a great time.
BTW it rained and misted off and on yesterday and last night. The gauge shows about 1/3 inch. I think its over now though even though its totally cloudy.
