I Don't Do Mesquite Thorns In My Truck
we went out scavenging late yesterday afternoon to see if the pipeline crew showed up. To our amazement they had laid out the pipe. It isn't near as large as someone had told John and it did look as if they were laying it on the timbers. Of course we were looking from the farm-to-market road since we were in my truck. I don't drive on cactus or mesquite thorns and anyway we didn't have the key to the gate with us. They probably are laying the pipe out on the timbers to weld it together before they lower it into the ditch when they dig it. We drove far around some other roads and the pipe is everywhere. They seem to work fast when they start a faze. The landlord of the middle property is supposed to come out this morning. He has promised to pay John for loss of grazing but the landlords of the east and west has been mum so far. Landlord also said he will have a new lease for John to sign. This is the most important piece of the land as it is where the stock tank, water well, and cattle pens are. The farm house is there too but it is more of a headache. John has to get the lease on the middle property in order to utilize the other two properties.
