Pinkie had glucose issue's this week, stayed at the vet for 3 days, she is now home and doing fine.
Prior to that Patti's oncologist saw something that looked suspicious near where she had her radiation treatment's, so we were in and out of the hospital for a few days having a bone marrow biopsy, the list just goes on and on, Patti is doing fine, and all test were negative
The bright thing in all of this is today is TEXAS INDEPENDENCE DAY.
It's cold for here, about like the time that the Alamo defenders spent at their post's.
I'm looking forward to the trip to far west Texas in April, hope to have some good photo's and stories to go along with it.
Ya'll have a great Sunday and thanks for checking in.

As we went north of Goldthwaite, we were amazed at all the wind generators that had popped up in the last 3 or 4 months. There are easily 200 of them on a ridge along the highway.
I'm sure Texas needs the energy, but man it has marred the landscape big time, just my opinion.
Ya'll have a great Sunday, and thanks for stopping in.

This is the ranch in Burnet county.
Sanderson Border Patrol, other agencies capture shooter, drug smugglers
January 30th, 2014 under CommunitySANDERSON – Two suspects, who authorities believe are responsible for shooting at a Sanderson Border Patrol agent north of Dryden last week, are in custody. The agent was not injured during the incident.
About 5:30am, the Sanderson agent initiated a traffic stop of a pickup truck at which time the passenger shot at the agent. The pickup fled the scene followed by the agent. Subsequently, the vehicle stopped seven miles North of Dryden on Hwy 349 where both occupants fled the scene on foot and escaped into the brush.
Border Patrol agents, with assistance from the CBP Office of Air and Marine, the Terrell County Sheriff’s Office, the FBI and the Texas Department of Public Safety began a search for the vehicle’s occupants. Also assisting were Homeland Security Investigations Alpine, the U.S. Marshal’s Service, Texas Parks and Wildlife and the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.
Border Patrol agents from Del Rio Sector along with the agents from the Border Patrol Tactical Unit in Del Rio responded as well. BORTAC deployed a patrol K9 to follow the trail of the vehicle’s occupants.
Around noon, following directions provided by a Texas DPS aircraft, agents arrested, without incident, two individuals who are believed to be the vehicle’s occupants. Authorities also recovered several bundles of marijuana from the bed of the pickup truck.
“This incident, and the result, was a perfect example of interagency cooperation,” said Big Bend Sector Deputy Chief Patrol Agent Carry Huffman. “Without the capable assistance of the other agencies that rallied quickly to assist it would have taken much longer to capture what appeared to be a dangerous smuggler and possible threat to the community.”
Authorities are still investigating the incident
Ya'll have a good Sunday, and thanks for checking in.
