wee haw!

Remember a couple of days ago, and I said that some of my deliveries were addressed "in the middle of the cow pasture 9 miles west of civilization? You thought I was joking right?

well, look where I was delivering today...

Those are Texas Longhorns by the way... If you click on the picture, you should be able to see them better, but those beasts were in no way, shape or form interested in getting any pics taken... They seemed to be saying, "Good grief, it's another blasted tourist with a camera... maybe if we ignore him he'll just go away..."
Just over the hill was the delivery "address" We'll call it address to be nice. It's a natural gas drilling site, and I deliver to a lot of them. Those guys always seem to be breaking some tool or other...

But I did see some wild buffalo gourds while I was there...

These are the gourds that the Native Americans used to make rattles and such... supposedly the ancestors of all our domestic gourds. They're awfully thin skinned, but some people use them to make Christmas ornaments. They're about the size of an orange.

Anyway, I actually had a pretty good day!


  1. Glad some of your deliveries get you off the freeway!! Cow pastures make a nice break!

  2. I just found this post of yours! do do some strange deliveries! Love that little gourd!
