Night Hawk

Decided it was time for some night vision for the ranch.
I have a motion sensor system that I use at night, but have needed something like this in the past when I wasn't sure if it was Border Patrol, or bad guy's watching me. That still bothers me......never could determine who it was that night, but it WAS someone. I went out about 200 feet from camp and parked myself in the brush, and spent the night there, and never saw or heard anything. ( but varmits ).
This thing works great in an urban environment, we'll see about how it works in the brush at the ranch, good I expect.

Ya'll have a great Sunday, and thanks for stopping by.

Disgust

Yes, that's how I feel right now.
I want you to read this, I could go on but I think it speaks for itself on immigration into this country, and the folks who are SUPPOSED to be enforcing the law.

Sunday

First Sunday of August, was a cool 66 this morning, on the back porch with the dogs', Patti, and assorted screech owls, whippoorwills, bats making a living, all with a cup of coffee.
It does not get much better than this.
Ya'll have a great weekend, steaks and potato on the grill for lunch.
Thanks for stopping by,,

The Ranch

Things have changed at the ranch, seems the drug smugglers have changed their preferred method, since the 'surge' started in deep south Texas.
Without going into it too far, which I can't because of fear of compromising BP security, my closest neighbor at the ranch had an encounter with the drug cartel about a month ago, and if you knew where his house was, you would know that he has no visitors, it was a kidnap/barricade situation at his ranch house, his 10 year old son was involved too, however, due to his pre planned phone code with his wife, who called from the mid west to check on them, the Border Patrol  was alerted and came to the rescue.
I'm afraid the smugglers have lost so many drugs in the surge, that they  have moved upriver again.
Ya'll have a great Sunday, we are going to do steaks and corn on the cob in a bit...sounds good!

Frannie's Birthday

When Frannie was delivered to us by a shelter worker, we were told she was about 1 year old, and a big clumsy sweetheart Irish Wolfhound cross with hair about 4 inches long.
She has wolfhound traits, she takes every step with one or both of us, always in protection mode.
However she is a little north of 12 now, and seems to be slowing down some, so when the groomer came by, Patti had her give her a buzz cut to help her cool off from the awful heat we have been having. I really think she was worried that I wouldn't like her after the cut, she seemed to be apprehensive when I first came in the door, and I have to admit, she does not look like the same dog, but she's still my baby, and when I told her that she turned into her old self. I know she feels better, and I'm glad to help.
Hope you are doing well, just hot and dry and work right now, trying to work in some time for the ranch and Port A.
Thanks for stopping by.
