Smelling A Rat
We had to rush out to the ranch to meet the landlord so I didn't even have time to get turtle food. The landlord and his daughter were already out there instead of calling first as he said he would. I think they wanted to sniff things out first without John there and that is their priviledge. He also didn't bring the new contract as he said he would. He said he decided it is too early and the old one isn't up for a few months yet. Humm me thinks daughter is looking after her interest but I guess I would too. I know I would. Oh well if John doesn't get it, it is God's will. Just worries me that he will sit in the house and watch TV too much. Yes he could lease another but this one is perfect to drive to at his age and health plus he knows it like the back of his hand since he was born on a portion of the land. After they left we drove south on some country roads to check out where the gas line is going there and what has been accomplished. Pipe layed out on some right-of-ways and not at others. Where they have gaps that are under electric wires they have colorful banners flapping in the breeze (hot I might add) to warn the drivers with high equipment not to connect with the wires. Now we just have to see them dig the trenches, weld the pipes, lower them into the trenches and keep the nosy cows from breaking a leg.
