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!

The Cadillac and where I got it?
I'm not much on Bull Shitting, but do it every now and then for fun. I think we all do it? I generally fess up real quick though. I guess its about time to fess up on the Cadillac since it doesn't belong to me. Haven't heard of any new rumors of how I came by it yet (probably because of my other post) I didn't buy it, steal it, rent it or anything else. Its a loaner! Just wanted to see what kind of rumors came up before I fessed up.
The car belongs to my niece Madeleine and she was kind enough to loan it to me for a while while I try to get my health straightened out through the VA. The Jeep is about ready for the junk yard and taking it on long distance trips to the VA facilities is a crap shoot at the least. Mater of fact I've been pretty well Exiled to Terlingua (name of a song I wrote some time back.) Anyway I've been pretty well stuck down here for well over a year and a half because of worrying about breakdowns even just going to Alpine and back for supplies. There aren't any VA facilities there anyway and taking it to Odessa was not a fun idea at all!
Not to worry Madaleine isn't having to ride a bicycle or anything like that. She has a newer one now and isn't ready to sell the loaner yet.
Not being able to get to the VA for appointments has taken its toll on me and truth be known I'm about ready for the human junk yard to. Not sure if its too late to get my health back or not, but I'd guess it is.
So there you have it.
Now the big problem will be getting the VA to do anything for me!
