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!

Paint / Wine
In the process of painting the cabin. Lee my neighbor who is a retired painter insisted that I paint the cabin with Oil Based primer before putting a top coat on it. He supplied 5 gallons of the primer so that got done before I finally painted the front (Picture above) with the acrylic paint Bigfoot brought me. I wasn't sure I'd like the color of the paint that Bigfoot brought, but now that I have the front painted I like it very well. Lee also helped prime part of it and Dave Secor did some touch up work on it. In case you can't tell the color is a very pale lime green.
View from the north east shows the primed side and painted front.
Pay no attention to the two 5 gallon water jugs in this picture. That is just a high octane wine brewer. Decided to try my hand at wine making and it turned out real good. (5 gallons of it)
Where's the rain? I'd always heard these guys come out only before it rains. Not so I guess. This was taken a couple of nights ago after I barely saw it because of the dark.
