"The Gate" Batesville, Texas Nov 19 & 20

"The Gate" Batesville, Texas 60 degrees and partly cloudy to 74 degrees and mostly sunny.

I am glad we made the trip to Pearsall yesterday as that rain last night was not forecasted and the caliche road is a mess today with these trucks in and out splashing the mud puddles and wheel spray caking mud all over the vehicles. Tan Jan (our car) coming in is covered with dust has been cleaned off with that rain. Every time I go into town I use the car wash and spray off the dust spray wash, rinse and spray wax, looks nice in town but returning to the gate the car looks like I never left as a new coat of dirt dust is now there all over the car.

"The Gate" Batesville, Texas 64 degrees and cloudy to 78 degrees and mostly cloudy.

Looking in at the speed sign
Also on Monday when I was going out there he was on the side of the road in front of Buster going to the left side of the speed sign a four point buck. He had walked up the left side of Buster continued past and then crossed the road and into the brush never to be seen after. This ranch is a no hunting as compared to other ranches that dose allow hunting and does limit oil field work during hunting season.

Looking out at the speed sign
the deer came along the brush line towards this camera location
I was just inside and looked out the front windshield before reaching for the door handle. Saw the buck and called to Bonnie to come and see the deer. We were fixated on the deer forgetting to reach for the camera. It was still dark and the tower lights from our generator made for great visibility to see the buck.

The buck walked into this brush here
