..thought ya might enjoy..

a view from our back porch/patio, overlooking the pool and out to the middle and back pastures - the weather has been "spotty" but there's still a lot of good, warm days so far this Fall - don't like seeing the grass turn brown and having all the tree leaves drop, but.....

just made reservations on the Mineola Wine Train, at the end of March - AMTRAK from here, thru Dallas and on to Ft Worth - Wine and Cheese tasting all the way.....visit the Stockyards in Ft Worth, overnight and sight-see the next day then AMTRAK back to Mineola

best news however is that my bestus friend and his Wife will be visiting from Vancouver, Wa and besides visiting here, they'll be going with us on the Wine Train (he's glad to be getting out of "lib-land for a few days) - I've known him since 1948 (he's 2 months older than I..... :th_thicon_lol:)(damn, that's 70 friggin' years)

set 9 posts today, hand-mixing the concrete and will set another 9 manana (we picked up forty 50lb bags of redicrete this  morning).....the work on the "ranch" never stops (thank god, and I'm sure enjoying the work that we're doing  :th_thicon_idea:)

our "Boys", Cinco and Ali, will be here next Wednesday (5 Dec) and we're sure glad - we've been missing them so damned much !!!!!

you might be able to distinguish the seasonal creek line (running right to left) about 1/2 way out - from that in to the fence just on the other side of the pool is what I call the near back pasture and that's the one I'm mowing now with the Tractor/Rotary Cutter

on the far side of that creek line then up the little slopes is what I call the far back pasture and that'll be the next to be mowed

don't like cutting the wild flowers but it's gotta be done before the grasses get too tall - also found a couple of "holes" that I need to fill (after it dries out)
