I have a few photos I wanted to blog about – all unrelated but neat.
One of the companies here decided to barbecue and brought us a plate. Jim got the steak and I ate the chicken.
The chicken was the best I ever had….tender and so moist and juicy. Jim said the steak was great. We had baked potatoes and a interesting rice combination with pinto beans and pork bits….I tasted it and it was good. You notice the total lack of vegetables (except for the two thin slices of green pepper). Rig workers aren’t big on veggies!
Here’s Jim repairing the bell rope. They are like the old-fashioned bell ropes they had in the gas stations back in the day to warn when an auto was outside…..the bell by our rig rings when a vehicle rolls over the rubber line. The rope got split and he had to cut it out and join the two pieces with a connector.
We do get the most beautiful sunsets here in Texas. Almost rivaling those in the desert of Arizona.
Things are pretty slow at the gate the last few weeks; but the pay is the same so we are enjoying the quiet lull.
Remember, you are loved.
