Who Would Find Little Sticks With Red Flags Exciting?
Us of course. The gas company doesn't give much warning. When they are ready to survey, they are ready to survey. The survey company for the gas pipe line that is going across the three ranch properties called John right after lunch and they were a mile past the ranch in his little hometown and they were ready to survey. The landowners turned it all over to John to let them in and show them where all the gates are and how to get in. They even left a message on my phone and then called John's number so he rushed out. He found out the pipeline will be going from Houston to Midland, Texas and will be 16 inches in diameter. Late this afternoon we drove around looking at all the stakes with the red ribbon to see how the pipe will go. So far they have surveyed the west property and tomorrow they will do the middle and the east. This crew wouldn't commit much to info. about the care of the cattle. They said he will have to talk to the construction crew about all that but they will put up some kind of barracade around the trenches and they probably won't start until about February, 2012 So that was our excitement today. Susie is still doing well but not coming out of the shed. She moves from the shelf to behind a tire on the floor. Comes out to eat or drink a little milk. No sign of the dogs but we're watching.
