Came to update my blog when I am greeted with blank spaces in one of the posts I was most proud of “The Sage is Blooming”. Turns out I deleted some pictures in Photobucket that I thought were duplicates and I guess they were the ones linked to my blog post. I will have to fix that but it will have to be another night, sigh!
Del Rio only has trash service once a week, so I was outside last night until pretty late raking and filling up trash bags. This morning my arms hurt but I had to go tackle the weeds growing on the street side of the fence since it is highly unlikely the county will mow again until next spring.
It was hot outside and I had my big brim hat, sunglasses and plenty of cold water on hand to help me bear the elements. I could see Walter in his stable with the darn sun bearing down upon him and his one little lowly mesquite tree for shade.
|I took this picture last month. The Mesquite tree offers little shade.|
School is over and the owner’s son was most likely in his air conditioned home watching TV or playing videos and probably does not even care the poor horse had no shade and probably hot water…that is if he had water at all! All the darn kid had to do was get off his fat rear end and let him come to our property. It saddens me that some people have no consideration for their animals.
Was outside for around four hours, came in took a shower and ate. Then Mom and I sat down to watch the news and we BOTH fell asleep until 7:00 p.m. Well at least we got a good two-hour nap.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
