We are back to the same ranch as we were in February, but different gate. We don’t have to write anyone in or out; basically we sit outside during the day with the gate opened and wave and smile as the trucks go in and out of our gate to other parts of the ranch.
A lot of gate guards who have blogs have been asked to sign non-disclosure agreements which basically requires them to not write anything about the whole oil/gas drilling industry. Many have stopped blogging or only blog about things unrelated to their job. We haven’t been asked to sign that agreement, but I’ve always tried to be careful about what I blog, so it wouldn’t be in conflict with the industry or the company’s competitors.
So most of my blogs from now on will be pretty vanilla…..plain and without much taste LOL. Also we don’t have very good cell or internet service on the ranch, so I won’t be blogging as often. I’ll compose on Windows Live Writer and save the drafts. Then I have to drive ten miles to where there is a good signal and publish it then and there. Right now I’m parked in the truck in the parking lot of a closed bar typing this out. I think I’ve got Jim convinced that we need a Wilson cell/data booster….he wants to be able to continue to play with his new smart phone so I might get the booster this time around.
So abide with us for the next four months as we gate guard in southern Texas and make enough money to pay off Jim’s hernia operation and then enough to go play in Louisiana in March when we will spend a month at Betty’s RV Park. So excited about returning to Abbeville.
Well, my time on the gate is coming up so I’ll close for now. Keep checking back for blog posts….I’m sure I can find something to blog about besides gate guarding.
Remember, you are loved.
