Back pedal'n

 "Alice" 2001
Boy oh boy, what do I do now? Here I am all pack up and ready to pull out of the desert headed for new stomp'n grounds in Texas with trees an' grass and stuff. But holy crap, by the time I get to my first destination, come bout tuesday, it's gonna be 106 degs....in da shade. As ya get a mite older...70 here in a couple months, the heat takes it's toll. I remember back when I were just a kid in my late teens, we would be out in the blister'n 100 deg plus heat all day long and never give it a thought. But things change as ya grow older.....not for the better either.

So, it look like old Billy Bob gonna sit here in Deming for one more week and see what the weather gonna do. Maybe that tropical storm DON will push some the heat out of Texas. But I wouldn't bet over a quarter on that happen'n.

Well shoot, it's time to go outside, sit on "da porch", sip a cup an' do some think'n.

12:30pm.....holy crap Billy Bob, have you completely lost yer mind....gone crazt? Ya see it were like this. I were sit'n out there on "da porch". It weren't even 80 degs yet and I looks at the cactus garden......hmmmmm, how bout I trim up some stuff? What I did....for over 2 hours. Haul it off to the trash pile even. Now why the hell did I do that if I'm gonna be look'n for a new homebase over there in Texas?

In the mean time.....now what I gonna do? Take a nap......after a big ol' ham and mater samwich? Sounds good to me.


  1. TS Don is a fizzle it looks like unless you are in Brownsville. Not enough rain over very small area. RATZZZZ

    Look at going up in altitude in New Mexico like Bluewater Lake State Park, NM.

  2. Barney, the temps are just fine here in Deming. It's the places I want to go that too dern hot.
