Fox Creek Gate Tilden, Texas - 50 degrees mostly sunny morning to 84 degrees and sunny. To 86 degrees and only a light breeze all afternoon.
Went into Jourdanton, TX for mail had pills sent there and sat in front of Verizon store and used high speed WiFi and Turbo Tax to send in our 2012 federal tax. I was also there to talk with the MiFi sales person that I am using the 4620 at Buster and receiving a signal sometimes and not able to send e-mails but I am receiving them. Road Runner birds are around here collecting bugs and come very close to you if you stay still. They are doing a good job keeping the area bug free.
Very slow day here at the gate and I am expecting a slow weekend gate traffic also. I have some projects to do on Buster so it is the right time to get busy on them.

Fox Creek Gate Tilden, Texas - 50 degrees mostly sunny morning to 86 degrees and sunny. To 86 degrees and only a breeze all afternoon. It would have been or felt hotter without the breeze. We have a lighter dew this morning.
Light gate traffic today. I worked on some projects around Buster today nothing completed only moved forward. I am tired after going into Pleasanton yesterday. As I was up early Friday so Bonnie could get to bed early then getting back late from the trip to town. It is about an hour and forty minutes just travel time round trip from the gate to SR 97. Then dinner and some time together makes for a very long day on Friday.

Fox Creek Gate Tilden, Texas - 59 degrees mostly cloudy morning to 97 degrees and sunny. We have normal dew this morning and the clouds in the distance I can see some light ground fog. It is hot today.
It is a Bristol race day (NASCAR) and I am only manning the gate and watching the race today. Silver Sally stepped slowly around the Bristol track in December so we could see the Christmas light show, 28 degrees of banking. There was very little traffic today. Out of three weekends this was the quietest one yet, very little gate traffic.

Fox Creek Gate Tilden, Texas - 65 degrees foggy morning to 95 degrees and sunny. It took until noon for all the fog to burn off and it was a nice blue sky day from then on.
Another slow gate traffic day for me and Bonnie went to bed early so she could make her first trip into Pleasanton this afternoon.
I ordered a Wilson AG SOHO 60db Wireless Amplifier - 801245 [800/1900mhz] to boost the telephone and Jetpack Verizon signal here at the gate.

Fox Creek Gate Tilden, Texas - 60 degrees mostly sunny morning to 87 degrees and partly sunny.
Another slow day, very little gate traffic. Watching the Road Runner (birds) coming
very close when sitting still. One has a lame foot but still is getting along well. They are after bugs. Today there was another smaller bird actually turning rocks over looking for bugs. We have out own army controlling the bug population.
