This is the diesel tank on wheels John used to go from tractor to tractor when he was farming peanuts big time and raising vegetables to ship. Notice there is always a cactus growing by anything that hasn't been moved in a while. This is on the ranch where John's daughter lives. Left back you can make out her goat barns and right back a working oil well. Landlord gets the money which probably isn't all that much a month. It was nice putting out hay this morning and on the way we counted eight deer crossing in front of us on the country road. We hardly ever see that many at one time. After we got our work done I ask John to go check the wild hog trap as we haven't heard from the renter as to his luck so far. When we got close I told John the gate is off and inside the trap. Can't catch any hogs that way. We got out to have a closer look and there was deer hair everywhere in the trap. Evidently he caught a deer and it was in a panic and probably tore the gate off. Can't wait to see renter and find out the story of that. That is what two rows of barbed wire across the front is for, to prevent calves or deer from going inside. When we got home I contacted live help then printed the info. so I could take my time in trying to solve my internet explorer problem. Crossing my fingers.
