West Texas Dust

Day 17

It was windy today but not as windy as yesterday.  This evening the wind completely died for about an hour, then I had 6 trucks come through the gate.  The dust just hung in the air for about 15 minutes until we got a little breeze.
That's not fog.  It's dust!
Dianna and I went to Pearsall today to go to Walmart and to the H.E.B. to go grocery shopping.  It's about 50 miles from here....11.5 miles to the highway and then 39 miles north.  Also had to stop at the TSC, so we ended up being gone about 4 hours.  I hate going off to do things like that, because then Dave doesn't get his nap and he gets soooo tired.

It always takes longer to do grocery shopping at a new store.  It just seems to take forever to find everything.  Different brands and different ways of grouping things in the store.  We didn't get back until about 4:30 and by the time we got everything put away, I rushed to make dinner.  We've been eating earlier so that Dave can get in the shower by 6:30 and to bed at 7:00, 7:30 by the latest.

I'm sitting posting this while I am eating my dinner.  What's for dinner tonight?  Turkey sandwich of course!  

Dianna and Mike have graciously offered to watch our gate for us on Saturday.  Our 35th anniversary is Sunday, so we would like to get away for a little bit.  We will probably just run into town for dinner.  Hopefully the gate is not too busy while we are gone or I will feel guilty the whole time we are gone.

I'm done eating and my eyes are starting to droop...It's 2:10 and Dave will be up in about 45 minutes.  I think my traffic is done for the night, so I think I'll snooze in the chair.

Good night.
