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!

Monsoon? / Camera
Got 2/10 inches of rain last night and 9/10 inch today (so far). Its still misting and may rain more later. I wanted to go down to the pond to see what it was like, but it was still misting so I broke out the umbrella I got at an estate sale. It just happened to be on a pallet of junk I won the bid on and it finally came in handy. The Pond? Well its a pond, but the dam doesn't go far enough east so before the water can get very deep it runs around the east end. To bad because it has the potential to be a fair sized pond.
Looks like my old Kodak camera finally gave up the ghost. I've given it hell over the years by accidentally dropping it a couple of times from around 5 feet high and left it out in the rain once, but it was always there for me. It was a pretty high dollar camera about 10 years ago and I bought it to out do my youngest step daughter. (To me more like a daughter) She died of breast cancer a couple of years later so the camera has a lot of sentimental value to it. I sure miss her!
BTW at this time the rain is back. A high % chance of rain is in the forecast until next Tuesday.
