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!

145 degrees in Terlingua?
Last Friday when I checked the weather on wunderground.com this is what came up. I think the 145 degrees was a slight Boo Boo because it felt more like 45 degrees. Of course it could be that I've finally become climatized to the Terlingua heat? A hundred degree difference in one day. WOW!
Friday was my 67th birthday and there was a birthday party at the Legion for me. Wasn't a big party because there was a concert put on by Jim & Anna elsewhere, but the few that showed up had a good time. To borrow a phrase from one of George Goss' songs "Welcome to the Bad Lands" Where the Wine and Tequila Flows There weren't no Wine, but enough Tequila, beer and whiskey to sink a battle ship. Or at least sink most of the people there including me!
The weather was perfect for the party and it was basically held out on the patio. Upper 70s, sunny and a very slight breeze.
I was up to my old tricks and invented a new Tequila, lime and coconut fudge made with 9 ounces of tequila, lime, white chocolate, and coconut. Turned out a lot better than I expected and added to the effects of the drinks.
