Counting your chickens

Last night on the gate

One thing you learn early on about the South Texas oil patch is all plans are subject to change.  The plan was to work until 12/21 and then take 30 days off.  That time frame would have put me working 14 months 24/7 .  But the plan changed……   All oil companies have rules.  Some are more restrictive than others and some allow some latitude as far as strict enforcement.  There were two oil companies on this lease and one of them had a ‘No Pet’ policy.  Of course, I have never made it a

Too long in the saddle?

Anyhow,
