Beautiful weather

We have had two absolutely beautiful days in the 70's.  It really feels like spring rather than winter. So much so that I think some mosquitoes must have been hibernating in the flower pots in the enclosed porch and came alive today.  Both mother and I have been viciously bitten by them :-(

John "Walter" Deere, my friendly neighborhood horse did a great job of mowing the weeds and I feel the need to keep up with the yard now that it is still under control.

Cliff - if you are still reading me do you want the mesquite wood?  I really do not think I can stand to look at those darn trees for another year...they got to go!

I never thought I would actually have something nice to say about my cheap Walmart mesh tent but you know what?  It has held up pretty good in the backyard for the past three months.  Ok, new readers to the blog, before you judge...let's get one thing out of the way...I am a procrastinator and it takes me a while to get to things.

My wonderful Kodiak Canvas tent up has been up a little longer as I saw no reason to take it down but that tent is designed to be able to take a beating both in Alaska and in Black Rock City (Burningman) so Del Rio is like a none issue.

Our menagerie of animals keeps growing.  You can read about it here or if you prefer just click on the header picture and it will take you there http://mylittlewalter.blogspot.com/

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.

Spurs Corner

I have been in hog heaven this week.  My Spurs have done me proud.  Of course, they love to keep their fans on the verge of a heart attack

Kawhi needing a time out to get off the court made me and a couple hundred thousand more tremble last night...thankfully he was alright!

Go Spurs Go!!!!!


  1. In the taller tent would be easier to stand up when getting dressed. When I was younger, I had small pup tents, in fact my first one was a WW2 pup tent that was my Dad's.

    1. In the Kodiak canvas tent a person up to six feet tall can comfortably walk around in it.

      One year my friend talked me into taking pup tents to Terlingua, I was much younger then and I still had a heck of a time getting in and out of that thing, not to mention all the ducking killed my back...never again!

  2. The sun down south could effect a tent a lot more than you suspect. (Even canvas) Of course if stored most of the time that won't matter.

    1. Definitively the Terlingua summer sun would be a factor. While I love my tent, I do not foresee me taking it to the chili cook-off unless I am going to spend over a week there, it is too darn heavy and a bear to stake down.

      I usually do not have it up during the summer in Del Rio either. Good seeing you around the blogosphere :)


I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to comment. Thank you.
