Been covered up with company and work, no time to post.
Kid's and Grand kid's last weekend, parade this morning, more company this afternoon, Yes, I'm counting my blessings one by one, a good wife and partner to take care of me as well.

These are on the road upriver to Presidio out of Lajitas, really a must see if you travel the river road.
This TXDOT rest area is very well maintained to be in the middle of no where, the tepee's are made of concrete on steel mesh, very durable, but they need to be.
By the way, we made homemade ice creme in a hand crank freezer with the grand kids last weekend, added Fredricksburg peaches, and it was a big hit with them.

There was an arrest made in front of our house yesterday evening about 5:30pm, don't know for what, just wanted you to remember to use caution and have a designated driver, no time for DWI'S.
Think safety, don't let those kids loose with fireworks, you need to watch them.

My closest neighbor and young son at the ranch ( about 4 miles ), had an encounter with a couple of drug cartel member a couple of weeks ago, BRAVO to the border patrol that came to the rescue, after a 'coded' phone call to his wife in Chicago.

Ya'll have a safe weekend, nothing is more important than you and the kids.

Friday the 13th

I consider myself lucky to get home in one piece tonight.
The ROT Rally, ( bikers are in town this weekend ).
126 DWI arrests, and I think 256 collisions last year, and only 3 deaths recorded.
If I don't leave the compound all weekend, I'm good with that.

River Road to Presidio

Thought I better post some of this stuff, an old movie set upriver from Lajitas, hope ya'll have a great weekend, and think about making some homemade ice creme in a hand crank freezer, how about that?
Have your kids ever seen one? If not, you can still get them, and if you need a recipe, they are still on the net, so why not? It's an opportunity to make one of those lasting impression's on the kids.

By the way D-DAY was yesterday, give your kids a test on their knowledge of that battle, and try to instill in them a sense of honor and sacrifice we owe all those old veterans, risking their life for people they didn't even know.
