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!

More This & That
While I was in the hospital one of my friends came over thinking I was at home and when I didn't answer the door he figured I'd gone somewhere with someone else and would be back soon. While he was waiting on me to get back he got out doing some searching and found the above arrowhead. First found here since I've been here.
The bunny in the two pictures above seems to think its my pet now. It mossies around here like I wasn't even outside and near it. I wonder if it will do that when Shelah gets here. ;) Its one darn big jackrabbit! Don't know what caused it, but cotton tailed rabbits are all over the place now. Mostly pretty young ones. They are everywhere and several are nesting in different places around here. That isn't only here though they are everywhere.
Above is a quality table and chairs brought to me by the Foots when we came back down here. My first thought was to coat it with Elastomeric (White roof coating) so it could withstand the outside elements, but now I'm thinking more in the direction of using it for a computer desk in here. Right now I'm using the coffee table I built out of solar panels and it keeps me bent over to use the computer. I can sit up straight using that table and have a lot more room to stack junk. ;) Bill also brought me a fire extinguisher, but I hope I never need it. Would sure be handy in case I did though.
I need to get the fridge Bigfoot brought me back when out of the sun and get it moved up under the porch roof in front of the cabin. I picked up three bags of concrete Monday when I caught a ride to Alpine and will be pouring a pad for the fridge soon. I should be able to start using it again soon and quit buying ice! I picked up two more batteries when I was in Odessa and that should help to. Of course if we keep getting the cloudy days that may not work out to well.
