Two Months On The Job…
Wow, hard to believe we’ve already been here for 2 months…It’ll be Spring before we know it. It’s been another slow week on the gate, but we did have some visitors. They came and lowered the well pump to try to increase the flow to the Frac Pond. There’s one guy coming everyday to do dirt work down at the new pad.
Our water pump was acting up so Willie came out to replace it on Monday. He needed another part, but got it fixed so we could fill our onboard tank for the night. He came back on Tuesday and installed the pump & it works fine now.
Ken also stopped by (from the main office) on Tuesday. He had brought a Genset Trailer down for a new Gate Guard couple that will be about 15 miles from us. The gate wasn’t ready yet, so he parked the trailer at our place until they could move it onto the site on Wednesday. Ken brought presents of new hats & name tags ~ LOL!
Dad went over and sat at Bob & Penny’s gate on Wednesday, so they could run some errands & go out to lunch.
Today Mom went by and met the new LOMA guards, it’s exciting to have more new neighbors…Welcome Danny & Erma! They are are 14.7 miles from us. Then Mom went on to Pearsall to get mail & do laundry. We got mail too!
They have to order our dog food from Amazon.com since they haven’t found any stores that carry it around here.
Then I spent some quality time in one of my favorite place – Mommy’s Arms…yeah, I’m a big baby.
The hunter’s stopped by and showed off the wild hog they got today. I wish they’d get that big cat, if they have to kill something.
Breaking News…..Check your pantry!
There’s a recall of 16-ounce jars of Smucker’s Natural Peanut Butter Chunky due to possible contamination with Salmonella.
“The recalled product features best-if-used-by dates of Aug. 3 and Aug. 4, 2012 and production codes 1307004 and 1308004, and it would have been purchased between Nov. 8 and 17.”
We checked, but ours is creamy
That’s all the news for now…
