A Brief Visitor And A Lot Of Activity


Earlier this week I was outside and was greeted by this gal. I believe she has a whole lot of bit bull in her. My guess she was about nine to ten months old. She was a playful thing you couldn't go out without her greeting you, letting you rub her belly and  and then taking off running around the house. You couldn't leave anything out as she would run off with it and most the time chewed it to pieces. I guess this was because she still had her puppy teeth and was teething.

imageOnce she took both of my Crock shoes off my step and when I finally found them they naturally had been destroyed. I wanted to kick her butt but then I said to myself.... my fault shouldn't had left them where she could take them particularly knowing she had this trait about her.

You’ve probably noticed I used a lot of past tense describing this gal.This morning I was outside mowing and no dog. Don't know if she found her rightful owner or decided to move on. Hopefully she found her owner and not ran over.


FM 250 here is a very busy highway with all the eighteen wheelers running up and down it hauling tubing to the oil fields. With the price of oil being over $100/barrel now things related to the industry has really picked up here. US Steel here in Lone Star has been busy making the tubing used in the oil industry.

The trucking firm next door to us has been hauling pipe out like theirs no tomorrow.  They make a lot of noise using a huge front end loader to load the tubing on flatbed trailers. My guess is there is at least twenty or more trucks in and out several times a day. They even load at night sometimes.

My BIL is also reaping the benefits of the higher oil prices as he has been busy hauling pumping units to West Texas. Naturally we consumers are footing most of this due to the higher fuel prices. I just need to figure out a way to make this diesel pusher run on distilled  water. Of course when I do it too will go up in price. LOL

Spring is here! We are expected to see temperatures around the low 80's for the next several days. The dogwoods are beginning to pop. The red buds which to me should be called purple bud are all over the place. The wild fruit trees are also blooming. It want be long when the green pollen will be all over the place. We really enjoy this time of the year in North East Texas. (click on pictures to enlarge)
