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!

Old House gone, Horses and Longhorns coming.
Some of you may remember a post I made here some time back about the old house just across 118 and to the south of the legion. Well its gone now and rumor has it that it will eventually be replaced by a restaurant and lounge.
Now about a quarter mile or so south of where that old house used to stand we have the corral in the two above pictures. Rumor has it that the corral will be used to contain Longhorn cattle if for no other reason for tourists to gawk at as they drive by headed to the real resorts down south. Fortunately this is about 1000 feet from my front door across 118 so maybe I won't be getting the smell of bullshit except when the wind is out of the east. That seems to be the prevailing wind a good bit of the year.
And the man responsible for all of this is likely driving that buggy down 118. This may be considered progress by some, but to me its more like the song below.
