Land Being Transferred Today
Thats what John calls it when the wind is blowing so hard the sand is blowing across the road from one property to the other. The native plants are blooming, we're having hot days already. Everything is ugly and pitiful. Tanks are starting to go dry and the cows are looking hippy even though they are being fed. John counted his babies and he has 16. We had company from west texas yesterday. They are visiting in san antonio and drove down here to spend a few hours with us. I took them to a good barbeque place for lunch. All decorated in country stuff and picnic tables to eat on. Then we went to the antique mall in the next town over. Just like a country business to call it a mall when its just part of a building with areas for people to sell on consignment. They loved it and bought an old doll and an old salt and pepper shaker set for her collections. They were impressed by our court house. It is a pretty old building. They ask about John's cow that I named Unique because she looks odd. I had to tell them she has been sold along with about 70 others. Jim will retire soon so they plan to come down more often and we will drive to show them the historical church where we attend. Joyce and I were married to brothers at one time. Her marriage ended in divorce and mine with death but we have remained close friends thanks to internet.
