This was the convenience store in a railroad car where I bought my chocolate fix when we lived on the ranch. I would go to town about a mile away to pick up the mail so this was right on the way. It has sat vacant and grown up with weeds and the gas pumps removed for several years. John and his son will be working cattle out there this morning. vacinating the new calves that have been born since the last cattle working. He has a 50% calf crop on the ground even though he has lost four mama cows this year. The farm house is coming along. The well man's brother wants to rent it. The stock tank is full of water so all is well at the ranch as of now. If the rains continue at intervals it will be a blessing.
