FRONT YARD AT THE FLYING W RANCH AS SEEN THROUGH OUR MOTOR HOME WINDOW THIS MORNING
I am going to really try & keep this blog short tonight simply because if I don’t I am going to fall face forward on the keyboard sound asleep.
BURNING PILES OF BRUSH IN THE SIDE YARD THIS MORNING
FRONT YARD VIEWS & BIRDS, BIRDS, BIRDS
I was out the door this morning about 9 & spent a big part of the day on the end of a rake burning piles & piles of bone dry tumbleweed. These dried shrubs are a bit of nasty business because of their tiny prickly stickers that get in your shoes & socks. Behind the house these densely packed Tumbleweeds stretch for as far as one can see. Ray tells me this stuff should be mowed & cut low during the Monsoon season to stop it from growing into the dry 3 foot high tumbleweed state. You can’t even walk through this stuff.
FOUND THIS OLD TUB, DRAGGED IT OUT & FILLED IT WITH WATER FOR THE DEER
Many concerned comments on the well being of Pancho, Sarah & Nellie. Next time over at the Ranch I will pass on all those nice comments when I’m talking to the Donkeys again. Laurie from, SEMI-TRUE TALES OF OUR LIFE ON THE ROAD sent a couple cute baby pictures of Nellie this morning. Laurie & Odel are friends of ranch owners Jeanie & Ray & did some ranch sitting back in 05. Thanks for the pics Laurie:))
WHAT A CUTIE THAT LITTLE NELLIE WAS IN 05:))
NELLIE & ODEL
Kelly & I feel so at home here at this location that we will definitely stay on for a bit. It is soooooo peaceful & is just the type of place we have always talked about we would like to have. And we sure have been talking about the Flying W Ranch these past few days.
WORKSHOP SHED ON LEFT & WATER PUMP HOUSE ON RIGHT
I am totally enjoying myself doing some actual physical work again & it is exactly what I have needed. I love a challenge & it feels so great to go to bed with good old tired muscles again. Haven’t had this much fun in years. Regardless of what finally shakes out here this week we will definitely leave at some point with a great feeling inside knowing the clean up improvements we have made to the property. We have a habit of doing that from time to time:))
LOTS OF ROOM FOR A WHOLE HERD OF CHICKENS HERE…THAT YELLOW STUFF IS THE NASTY TUMBLEWEED THAT NEEDS TO BE CLEARED OUT EVERYWHERE
ROLLING AN OLD BURNING BARREL UP THE LANE THIS MORNING
Tomorrow I will continue working on the grounds & we will continue our discussions about…..the Flying W Ranch:))
