Whitley canyon at the ranch  9/4 16.
The water was 8 or 10 ft deep, about 150 to 200 yards wide and scrubbed the canyon clean, and washed out the road. I have never seen it like that in 15 years.

July End

Just a note to say howdy, few photo's of Marathon.
All is good here, guess you saw the news on the Hot Air Balloon crashing east of Austin killing 16 people. I have no words.
Also the shootings in downtown Austin last night, killed one, and injured 4.
There sure seems to be a lot of rage in folks now days, no matter where they are, I'm trying hard to understand the logic, but I guess I'm too old and behind the times to get it.
I guess like my Dad always told me, you can't prevent it, but you CAN prepare for it.
Had a great conversation with 2 different Travis County Deputy's this week. I let them know that I, ME, had their back, if I saw them in need of support from the public, anytime, or place..I'm just an old guy, but I'll help in anyway I can if they are in trouble.
They both thanked me for the backup if needed.
We have to stand together against the wrong, and always support LEO's, that's what holds this union together.
Have a great Sunday, tell your loved ones they are special to you, thanks for stopping in.

Just a note to check in, all is well here, hope it's that way at your place.

Went to the movie theater yesterday with Patti to see the 'The secret life of pets', first movie I have been in since ET came out I think.
It was good for a 12 year old, but I think I could spend my time better, but Patti wanted to see it after the trailers she had seen on tv, so... we went.
They had a 'WEAPONS PROHIBITED' sign on the door we went in, I didn't see it I think....oh, well I might have, but didn't notice it, ehr.
This is Mexico from camp at the ranch after a shower in September a few years ago I think.
Looks like the crisis in Turkey has been averted, I hope...we have folks there in Incirlick Air Base, but I'm confident they can hold their on, whatever transpires.
I'm a truly blessed man, and thank God, I don't have that to contend with that along with the rest of everyday life.
We re potted plants on the back porch this morning before day light, and saw a lot of Mexican Free tail bats while doing that and drinking coffee, and the dogs helped us watch for those pesky wabbits, it was great!

Hope all are well, thanks for stopping in.

Howdy folks, yes it's been hot here in Texas the last couple of weeks, 97 to 103 or so, a good time to remember that a man needs to know his limits, and not get heat stroke, so be aware that it can sneak up on you.

These are from La Posada Milargo, in Ghost Town Terlingua.

Ya'll have a safe weekend, and stay cool, thanks for stopping in.
