Two Ways

I decided since we live so perilous close to the edge out here in the pucker brush that needful action is in order for 2014.   It is not just the blowdown winds, big hails or buzz tails as big as your arm and long as your leg we gotta worry about doin’ our gate guard thing.  King Obama could unleash the hounds of hell on us most any day as well .  I think it prudent to get the house in order much as it is possible and that means havin’ two ways to do most things.  Two ways to
