Things in the Road

Piddlin’ outside the NO Princess Palace

It is just sorta the way it goes down here in the Puckerbrush. The weather has been admirable; after all it is my favorite time of the year. A few mornings down into the high 40’s and then quick to warm up to 80 or better. Still shorts and sandals weather for sure.

Same as a Coke Can

The big ass Suburban piled up for a trip to the trash trailer

I am getting a handle on some brain things during the wee hours of a mid December morning.  My old tired noggin’ does better when things are laid out in a simple linear fashion. Close as I can figure I am well into my fifth year of writing this blog;  come January Miss K and I will have three years of oil field gate guarding under our belts.  This all come up yesterday to start and got me to thinkin’.
