Being back to work was all right I guess. My first client answered the phone, "I'm out here in the pasture, on horseback, you'll probably make it up to the house before me." Oh, I don't know about that. He doesn't know just how slow a Rodgers' boy can drive. We were raised to mosey.

I hope this new owner of what used to be the Hooper Ranch gets help with this prairie. Fences are ugly, no doubt, but so is barrenness. With a few fences they could better manage their grazing.

Possibly because of the low level of water in Storrie Lake and the subzero temperatures the remaining water is frozen and covered in snow, which may be one of the white stripes seen in these pictures below Porkchop Hill, or perhaps it is just more windswept prairie
Alrighty then, I did beat the cowboys up to the house. Reminds me of a story I heard.
A Texan met a New Mexican rancher at a shared fence. Amazed by the Texan's bug hat, perhaps, the New Mexican asks, "Just how big is your ranch, if I may ask?" The Texan proudly replies," Let's just say that if I got in my truck at sunup and drove from my west fence to my east fence I wouldn't make it by sundown," The New Mexican smiles and replies, "I got a truck just like that."
I just thought I should share this good morning story with you.
Y'all have a great weekend.
Nell and I are off to Santa Fe to have the Santa Fe Surgery Center change out the bandage changed and a cast put on in place of the splint.
We watched a great independent movie last night, Beasts of the Southern Wild
