The Dullclivity of Life

Self portrait on a window

I have been thinking these past few days about our gate guard life.  Often I am asked ‘How’s it going?‘  and the rote reply is ‘Good!  My scenery seldom changes.’
Could we see our-lives-to-be in February of 2011 when we packed our goods and headed deep into the Barnett Shale west of Muenster? You can read 40 gate guard blogs and for the most part,  one blog could be the next one could be the one before.

The Princess Palace at work

Terlingua Reprise - Cowboy Coffee

Headed south out of Balmorhea on Highway 17 was a fine place to be on a Friday afternoon in March.  Neither Miss Kathy or I had ever been down that route through the Davis Mountains and on through Ft Davis to Alpine.  Miss K seemed to enjoy it but then any combination of desert + mountains makes her smile.  I think both of us would have liked to explore Ft Davis a bit more but with a DTB each in tow; you just don’t pull off anywhere.  We were pushing to get to Alpine before close of business anyway.  I
