Ambushed by America

My new book, “Ambushed by America, is now available at Amazon. It contains more wit and wisdom, mainly wit. I’ve begun writing my fourth book titled, “Saplings, Twigs and Switches.” I returned this week from a lovely trip to Spain and Portugal where I visited the Prado Museum and National Palace in Madrid, the fortress town of Toledo and the university town of Salamana...

I haven’t posted in a coon’s age and don’t know how long coons live but I have lots of them here at the ranch and they are pesky critters. The Homeaway and Vacation Rentals on the property kept me quite busy through the summer. Hunting season is upon those of us who own ranches with native and exotic game.

Springtime in the Texas Hill Country

I haven’t posted in quite a while and don’t have a good excuse. Spring at the ranch is busy, my garden is fertilized and planted. The agarita and mountain laurel have bloomed. I have a new ram for my dwindling sheep herd, thanks to the coyotes. The state trapper has managed to kill one so far. The spring turkey season has been a symphony with the turkeys gobbling through the...
