Deer in the grass beside the cat last night
(Picture the next morning)
Today after her sleep my wife went to Carrizo Springs shopping and was back near sundown. I opened the gate for her return and after closing it going to Tan Jan to help bring in the bags. She had her door open and I was looking in the direction of the car when I realized there were four deer in the area forty feet from the left side of the car.   I opened the right rear door and said “do not move just turn your head to the left and see the deer” she did. The deer continued their eating and did look up checking that we were not coming in their direction as we went about bringing in our groceries. That is the first time they were seen in that area. There are plenty of deer on the ranch.

Frack water tanks came in again today for the third or forth day. No pipe crew but there were enough others single vehicles coming and going to keep me jumping up for the gate. There are a bunch in now and will be filled with water for the Fracking of the wells (six). I am being told the frack will last sixty days. We will not see the end  of the job, we will be leaving the gate in March. We only have forty-eight more days here and the frack does not start until latter this week or next week.
