We came back to the same company we worked for last year. I called them on Friday, Oct. 3rd and they had a gate for us on Monday, Oct 6th. That was fast. We were planning on taking it easy for a week and doing some shuffleboard. Well, that didn't happen. But you can't turn down a job when it's available, because you don't know how soon another one will be offered. So here we are doing our thing.
We have been on 3 gates since than. The first one lasted 3 weeks, second one lasted 3 weeks, and here we are at our third one, which has been about 3 weeks. We did have 1 1/2 weeks off between the last 2 gates. It was nice to have the break. Before we have always thought, we are here to make money and we don't want any time off. But, the break makes the time on site easier. Especially since we plan on working all winter. So now we are looking forward to another break.
|At our 2nd site we had a little more room, but than we had about 3 days of |
rain, and we had a mess. We had about 5 days of dry weather before
we left so things were dry when we pulled out.
|We hate the rain, but I know Texas needs it, so I try not to|
complain about it.
|This is the entry into the site now.|
|This is looking at it from our side.|
These are the animals we have encountered while here.
|A bird we saw in Walmart. I guess he was shopping|
|This guy decided to adopt us. We didn't encourage him|
we just wanted him to go home.
|He hung out for a few days.|
|There is a few houses down the road. We were hoping that's where he|
was from. After a few days, he left.
|My first coyote, I thought it was a dog. He looks pretty well fed.|
|2 buzzards hanging out. Ed says "are we getting that old". lol|
|When they flew away, Ed caught them in flight. I thought it was a |
|I can't believe "I ate the whole thing"|
|Ed says, "but look at all the fruit it contained"|
|During our break we met up with Lacy and Pam at |
Here are my Christmas decorations. I bought this tree 3 years ago and never used it. It was really easy to put up. It was my Walmart special for $3.
|This was my first attempt, I just hung up the stocking.|
|Than I got a little more creative. This is about as creative as I get.|
|Than I dug out the Christmas tree and put it up. Looks a little better.|
Merry Christmas to everyone and wishing you a very good New Year.
