Attention To Our Kids
If we come up missing we are on a gravel country road in south Texas somewere. Somewhere. but we don't know where because we are looking at windmills, wildflowers, and longhorn cattle with the longest horns you have ever seen. Actually I am trying to figure out how to scale this high high fence so that I can pet this unusual animal. It looks sad. This morning it was sooo foggy I didn't want to go to the ranch and fight the oil field trucks. John promised we would go a country road where there is hardly any traffic. It was the truth, I think we met one car. We saw this odd animal inside the high fence of a large ranch. The fog was so bad we could hardly see anything else. It was about the size of a hog. It was brown and reminded me of a giant mole or gopher but when it turned it reminded me of a rabbit face. we talked about it so much we decided to go back this afternoon and have another look when all the fog had lifted. Lo and behold there was nine of them and there was a very large pond that they were all near. Now we are thinking they may be some sort of water animal, maybe beaver. I talked to them and ask them to come close to me. They didn't, but they didn't run away either. As we drove on we saw a sign that it is a wildlife ranch so they may be from some other country. Boy! It was all good today.
