Hammocks rock

Yesterday, between setting irrigation dams, siphon tubes, and filling horse waterers I did manage to take a break.  Today I intend to do the same with a Modelo Especial and a Drew Estate.

I Want One Of These (redux)

Holy crap, what were they thinking?

Area transportation for seniors is a laudable goal and most communities seem to have implemented something. Some contract with a local bus company to help get seniors to their doctor appointments while others establish their own systems. When I lived in Meeker, CO...

Skid Vicious has surgery

Sandi took her baby colt to have minor surgery done on his leg. He had a tendon issue that needed a slight tweak. All seems well and he is up and around only hours after waking.

Peacock at Magnolia Park

  Unfortunately, although I followed him for about 30 minutes, he didn't open his fantail.  He looks a bit scraggly so it may not have been that spectacular anyway.

It Didn’t Explode!

It's the time of year to burn the fields in preparation for the new hay season.  I have a bit of pyromania in my blood so I always look forward to this task.  Armed with my LP tank and weed burner attachment I set out burning the field south of the house.  All went...

Sandi is the Pied Piper

Sandi and the geese get along great. They sit in her lap and peck lightly at her rings and bracelet as she pets them. After a bit they quiet down and just relax and poop on her LOL.

I’m finally back here again

Looks like I'm getting an entry in here about once every year, whether it needs it or not. I never was good at journals. Well, the Flag Creek Cafe lasted until about July 15, at which time we completely understood why the restaurant business is so different from the...

NC Telecom Update

Well, the judge in the NCT bankruptcy case ruled that our reorganization plan and auction should move forward as presented in our motion.  He apparently did not buy the argument that the parent company or current management (moi) allowed our personal stakes in the...

WOW, just WOW

This image is not Photoshopped. Large sinkholes devour Guatemala City. A giant sinkhole larger than a street intersection has swallowed a three-story building and a house in Guatemala, as residents reel from a storm that has killed at least 146 people across Central...

Started a restaurant

It is now mid-may and we're still unpacking at home!  We have started a business as owners of the Flag Creek Cafe, located at the Meeker Golf Course. The startup is taking an inordinate amount of our time and energy, but after two weeks we are beginning to get our...

All (Home), Weather

Just an update

Spent a bit of time updating the pics pages and moving the site as a sub-web of my weatherweather.net site.  I've always been interested in weather phenomenon and after leaving Bakersfield it dawned on me that I'm finally living in an area that actually HAS...
