Back at Work

Well, our little vacation didn't last long.  We were assigned the next day (Thursday) to a new site just 8 miles away.  Gary likes this spot.  There is a streetlight outside over our paved road, neighbors with a horse (although the horse disappeared yesterday), and puppies that run around.  They make me crazy with the huge trucks in and out of here.  I couldn't bear it if one got hurt.

Since we're on a fracking job again, there will be loads of sand trucks in and out night and day.  So Gary is on night duty, but is happy we are not so remote, so he feels safe.  I loved our last remote spot, however I did catch a glimpse of a scissor-tailed flycatcher this afternoon.  The trees are all in leaf and it happened practically overnight.  It makes it so much more attractive around here. 

I don't think we'll see any bobcats, but I did see a scissor-tailed flycatcher (a first for us)

And a beautiful spicebush swallowtail on a newly opened thistle. 

So Life is Good today!


  1. Wow that wasnt a very long vacation. The butterfly on that thistle is beautiful.
