Busters Gate Jim Hogg County TX - July 18 - 20 Moon Day

Busters Gate Jim Hogg County TX -  Monday, July 18, 2016
Morning 79 Degrees, Wind ESE at 4 to 9 Mph, Humidity 85%, mostly sunny.
Afternoon 99 Degrees, Wind ESE at 2 to 11 Mph, Humidity 39%, sunny.

Yes I did drive back to Buster about seven miles without any further problems.  I attempted to access the spare tire and rejected that idea. I contacted a tire shop in Hebbronville, they are procuring two tires and well be here tomorrow an replace both front tires.

We had a cattle show tonight, not really coming up the road but coming out of the brush and gathering on Buster’s left side before going north northwest (Buster’s right side). There was a vehicle that came in and that sent most of them back into the brush. The ones that stood their ground waited and finally one  continued moving as they usually do and with one to leading they all tend to follow. Even the one’s that went into the brush came out and walked on up the road. But now going they were like single file no stopping to graze just walking to get past Buster and the generator trailer. I am still not sure if the generator running noise or flapping of the window awning bothers them or makes them nervous about being near.

Morning 75 Degrees, Wind E & variable, 1 at  to 3 Mph, Humidity 84%, mostly sunny.
Afternoon 98 Degrees, Wind NE at 6 to 12 Mph, Humidity 45%, Scattered Clouds.

Tan Jan has new tires on the front now, I had replaced the rear tires in twenty-fifteen. These two one had a parch inside and the other had a slow air leak. My wife got up late afternoon but I still went to Rio Grand City for groceries and pickup a prescription that was ready at the Walmart pharmacy and I was back to the gate about seven-thirty. I did better time wise as I only did two stores. I also got gasoline for Tan Jan, $!.799 per gallon. Driving into town there were roads wet from a recent local shower and I did drive thru some showers further down the road. Te new tires felt good even without the balancing.

No cattle today, maybe there were too many trucks today, besides we were busy putting away groceries and having dinner.
