Went to Huntsville yesterday and bought a truck from pazthru, came home to a horror movie worthy bleeder on a dehorned heifer. Couldn't tweeze it shut so had to slap iron too it like Joesy Wales prescribed, mom is going to try and finish cleaning the heifer's head up this morning.

First fatigue day in 15 days and feel like I ran a marathon instead of rested

Got raffle tickets for youth group at church in yesterday, they got some cool prizes


And buckles for the folks shooting at a turkey shoot the day of the drawing

I met with a startup company yesterday developing a residential wind powered generator, they're in a business incubator at the former Moffet Naval Air Station on SF Bay (all NASA Ames now). Across the lot Hanger One, one the largest free standing structures in the world. Ot was built for Navy dirigibles in 1923, the Hindenburg disaster ended the program, the hangers are still there.

I like the Christmas star. If some liberal does't like it- YOU go take it down!

Waiting. Dreaming, hoping, that this year will be the year that Hailee and Justin draw their first blood. Think we got on a good lease with great people and some really nice critters.

Get ready, now things really start to speed up. The yesterdays fly by so let me say this.

Hug the ones you love, count your blessings, and go out and make it a great day.

Had a great weekend at the lake this past weekend with my brother Hushpuppy Man on here. My daughter and SnL showed up with their family which added to the campfire. Both Grandboys have B-days this month. Both my parents are still alive. I have a home. And food on the table. Got out of bed this morning. Pickles still snores when sleeping. Blessed with so much. And serving others when He lets me. Life is grand.

This little dude turned 5 months on Thursday. He took his first trip to Galveston this weekend to drop momma off at a bachelorette party. He got to hang out at Market Days with his aunt Sally and got a boat ride around the canals at Jamaica Beach!

That Boy of Randall and Brittany's will fit in anywhere. Joe cool takes notes on that youngster!!!

Well 108 days out here in Dow, I've been running catalyst pours for the majority of that.

Sitting in a crane instead of working in front of it is looking more and more inviting everyday... had one guy say you don't get as many hours. Guess he didn't realize with the family land and hunting season THAT'S the idea! Can't figure these 7/12'ers out y'all.

Sitting here at DeZavala terminal this morning and saw a historic marker down by the ship channel. One of the plant guys unlocked the gate going to it and let me go look it over. Figured it had something to do with the Battle of San Jacinto, turns out it was the house of Texas Vice President Lorenzo De Zavala and was used as a hospital for those wounded during the battle.

Congrats Leon

That's pretty neat marker Tim, amazing how much history is in and around those plants up there.

Nephew made the Fair's front page for summer series, him and Rudy will be at it again tonite I think


Only up side of 7/12's I'm stocked and ready for fence replacing when they finally cut me loose. Everybody's dreading it and I'm counting down days to get my projects done. Best estimate I'm hoping to replace 4,600' of line fence this summer with net wire

Still learning the ropes as a supervisor in the child abuse unit. We are drowning here....a new CPS referral comes in every 6 minutes on average. Sad situation.

On the positive side.....meeting TBH'er Airehead (Ron) in centerville in the morning to get a new mini-split AC in the cabin. Haven't been up there in 3 weeks so I'm itching to go.

Love this little dude like he's my own. Little over one when he helped me track my first bowkill, took him on his first noodling trip last weekend and boy was he excited to drive the boat! I work out of town so every time I come in him and "Uncle Jake" go on an adventure.
