End of Our Gate Guarding

We knew we were going to stop gate guarding near the end of February so we could spend a month in Louisiana at the infamous Betty’s RV Park.  But we found out today that we will be released from this gate next Tuesday. The rig has already pulled out and the other flow back well will go to “production” (capped). So we’ll just close it out then.

We’ll spend a couple of days in the Whitsett yard and will go visit The Mossman’s for sure.  We are awaiting the delivery of a new microwave.  We’ve been without a microwave since it broke down back in December and haven’t been able to get the one and only RV tech in this area to come out and fix it/order a new one.  So we ordered a new microwave/convection oven from amazon.com and once it arrives we’ll go down to Mercedes and have our buddy and RV Tech, Dennis Sides put it in for us.  We met The Sides when we all worked at amazon in Coffeyville, Kansas.  Then back in 2010 when Jim and I drove to Rapid City to become South Dakotans and this microwave started falling out while we were driving along. We called Dennis for help as he and Colette where at the Hart Ranch.  Dennis and Jim spent a good three hours bracing in the microwave and solved the problem.  So Dennis “knows” this microwave.

So we’ll spend a few days in Mercedes and get to visit Jean and John Watson whom we met when working for amazon in Campbellsville, Kentucky, in 2010.  Then we’ll “shoot from the hip” and just wander around between there and Abbeville, Louisiana.

So we have a few more days/nights to work and then Jim and I can do things together again.  

Remember, you are loved.

    1. Linda, I did read about your losing your microwave also. We have a service contract so need an RV tech to process the paperwork and there isn't a tech in our area.

    Howdy B&J,
    Well, here goes another try at a comment SOMEONE ATE THE LAST ONE!!!

    Relax, Bobbie(Curly), and enjoy sleeping with a 'snorer'!!! I'll bet it's hard to get back into the different sleeping routine; it was when I worked 'shifts'... When you leave, please, close the gate so the cows won't get out!!! In your travels to the bayou country be careful and watch out for nutria.... Hope y'all have a safe enjoyable trip

    Remember, y'all are 2 also!!!!
