Morning 46 Degrees, wind NNW 7, humidity 56%, mostly sunny
Afternoon 74 Degrees, mostly sunny.  

Bonnie and I went out for a great dinner today. Bonnie was texting with Carole and we were invited for an early dinner this afternoon. It is only a one hundred-ten mile trip from here at Atascosa RV park to their house there in Austin. We left a few minutes early and stopped for gasoline at Bucee’s there north of New Braunfels, along the east side of Interstate thirty-five. That is an interesting gasoline stop, one hundred-twenty pumps and only a few were open when I pulled up to refuel Tan Jan. They cleared quickly as there were cars continuing to come and go. Inside clean modern restrooms and everything a convenience store should have plus more.

We had a great time visiting along with a great dinner. Avery is eleven now and in a growth cycle so shoes and jeans are shrinking fast. Carole is scheduled for another trip to San Francisco soon but is also busy there in Austin. We will be going again soon unless we get a gate job.

Been contacting the gate companies both ones we have worked for and ones we have not worked for looking for any available gate jobs but it is slow. Oil companies are “laying down” drill rigs and cutting their budget for drilling and completing well sites. These “budgets are investment” monies and while the oil price per barrel is in the mid forties now the return on the dollar invested is not what the companies need for their investment. There are gates with oil work continuing but new starts are not taking place. Budgets are being cut from twenty to ninety percent depending on the company. Production of oil from a well is an ongoing thing but can be “shut in”. I read a blog “” that is news for the oil industry and stories reported there of the many companies slashing their investment budget for new oil and completion of wells.
