Two weeks ago this is what it looked like a block down and across the street from our subdivision. Today the fence is gone and this land is completely cleared out except for some of the larger trees. This picture only shows a small portion of the property. This is where the wild animals came from that we saw on occasion. I'm so sad that we won't see them anymore. Once A very young fawn crossed this street in front of me so I stopped my truck and watched it go right into the Senior Citizen's apartment's ground. We've seen javalinas,roadrunners and when John used to walk early in the morning he would see fox. Once an exotic deer ran along side my truck. When we first moved here there were cattle coming up to this fence. I like living here because it is part country and part city in the same area. We have a junior college, a small airport and everything a person would need without driving to the city yet you can see cattle grazing next to a doctor's office. In the mornings if the weather is just right you can hear coyotes howling in the distance in one direction and the train whistle in the other direction. We are hearing they are building an apartment complex on this property and I know that is progress. The oil field workers need thier jobs and they need a place for their families to live but I can't help but feel a little greedy in wanting our country in the city to remain.
