Lookin' out my front door....

Vela Von is digging it……..

The Little House ain’t been around long but a routine is already being established.  Routines are comforting. I drug up an old red plastic chair that has been sun bleached to a dusty pink and it sits in the corner of the 6′ porch. Every evening about dusk we grab a coupla cold beers and head for the front  porch.  The beers go in two mis-matched coozies and I set ’em on the porch railing and I rear back in that cheap chair and get comfy.  Vela Von alternates between doin’ dog stuff out in

Shangri-La?

NO Princess Palace on station. Spring 2017, McMullen County, Texas

17 days straight of 100+ degree temps before a little front broke it and we got a teacup full of rain. No matter and not surprising,  I have survived worse.

Activity Preview for the Secret Hideout

I am riggin’ down for 2 weeks of off time at the Secret Hideout.  That will amount to 162 days 24/7 without a day off. That is not a personal record; nor even close but as I get older I try to work smarter – not harder.

With that thought still fresh, you got fair warning the posts for the next two weeks may be variable.  I don’t tote the laptop out to the Church Smoker when it is operational and I don’t type worth a damn with a cold beer in my fist.   One
