We have been on the road for 3500 miles since we left home a bit over 9 weeks ago. Amazing. This just counts the miles traveled using the Garmin….not errands. Yeesh.
We are in Vicksburg, Mississippi tonight and are going to stay here tomorrow for a break in travel. We will probably be home in a week.
Last weekend, we spent two days visiting my sister, Pat, and her husband, Wesley, at their ranch near Austin. It was a great visit. They are two of the few folks who The Bearded One enjoys a bit of time with (sorry, dangling participle) and vice versa.
We last visited them two years ago and their home is even more beautiful than the last time we visited.
In the past year, they have experienced a horrible drought but things seem to be turning around…just hope it continues for them and for other ranchers.
They are raising cattle and Gulf Coast sheep. They have donkeys as guard animals for the herds and cats, lots of cats.
And then there was the food! Yeesh. I shouldn’t eat more for days! It was wonderful and so thoughtful!
We had a great time. Thanks Pat and Wesley…hope to see you next winter!
