|our waiting place, look at the overhanging tree|
|Somebody wasn't watching|
|We were careful, so it wasn't us|
|Ed was surprised how this tree filled in the fork and|
then it looks like a limb grew out of it.
|our dog friends that met us on our walks|
|even though some of the neighborhood wasn't that nice, other places|
had some really nice houses
|another nice house|
We have been here 4 weeks. Should have 4 weeks more to go. Then we are heading to Virginia to meet up with the kids. We will stay here until the gate ends but it looks like everything is coming together. It has been a good gate. Not real busy.
|Ed hard at work, we have had some nice weather except|
|Our site, We are southeast of San Antonio, Texas|
|This is what they call the facility, about 1/4 mile back|
|This is where they are drilling. Almost like a little|
village. They bring in mobile homes and some
of the guys live here. Usually one or two weeks on
than they leave for one or two weeks and
another crew comes in.
|in the distance you can see the rig|
|This is "the rig" sets over the place they are drilling|
|I thought this one was very pretty|
|Ed wanted to show you some of them|
|This picture is for Carm, Ed's sister. This is where he goes to|
cut his branches. He has to watch for the snakes.
|"back scratcher material"|
We have cows at this gate. A couple of blogs back we had a coyote chew the cord on the sensor and than take off with it. This time we had a cow chew on the cord. They usually knock them down but this is the first time one has chewed it.
|We have a whole heard this time.|
|Ed's solution for the cows. Don't worry he didn't|
hurt any of them.
|Our mangled wires|
|Ed was able to fix them. Last sensor we were able too.|
|He ended up putting the sensor in among the thorns. |
So far it has worked
|This one is suppose to be hidden. He said it seems to be the|
young ones that won't leave them alone.
And of course we have our little creatures like snakes, spiders and ants. But so far no mice.
|We have ants everywhere|
|We have fire ants|
|Mosaic ant hills|
|and of course big black spiders|
We actually haven't seen any snakes but some of the workers have
And last but not least my bird in flight.
|This is an Osprey,|
