                                     Good Morning Sunshine

Another slow day Gate Guarding in the South Texas  oil fields.  It is a lot nicer when you get enough sleep and can do things that want to do.

Today just some tanker trucks, crude and water. and a few people monitoring  the wells. Again that’s it.  Jaime  came to get the #s and visited. 

The rest of the time I caught up on reading blogs and watched some more movies and took a nap..  I did have a little mishap.  I have been putting a citronella type candle outside near the door to help control the mosquitoes.  I had it on the molded step stool and didn’t realize how hot it was when it gets completely melted, well it also melted the plastic.  Fortunately I realized it before melted and cooled.  I was able to close and open it several times while it cooled so that I can still put it away.  Otherwise it would have cooled frozen  open.  Oh well. you live and learn.

This morning I walked around the gate earlier this morning and took a few more pictures, These were taken with my I phone.

Thanks for visiting

  1. Nice to hear you're able to get some sleep. That will make your gate guarding a whole lot easier to deal with.

  2. Here's some pics of your grand daughter.. (Theater Banquet) (AVID Banquet)

  3. Here's some pics of your grad daughter at her first two semi-formal banquets. (AVID Banquet 5/25/12) (Theater Banquet (5/26/12)

  4. Sounds like things are coming around for you - finally! I was really worried. Angel is funny, watching those bugs. Aren't our dogs great? They can be so entertaining! :)

  5. So glad to hear that life has slowed down a bit and you are getting rested up. Hope you have some more bug candles and you can find a better place. Flowers are pretty.

  6. Glad you're able to relax and do some things you enjoy. That is awesome. Those bugs are almost as big as Angel! Yikes! :)

  7. I'm so glad to hear you are actually getting some regular sleep. It's so much healthier for you. Oh and mom the google locator just says unidentified location for me. So you are truly in the middle of nowhere. Lol. LOVE AND MISS YOU!
