Today we’re moving furniture around here at the ranch. Having to put a new roof on the lodge has necessitated some rearranging. My son has come to help. The full moon prevented a night’s rest and the early morning pink is welcome. August heat in southwest Texas is oppressive. An early start is required. In the meantime I have a trip planned to China, one of those coach, train, boat, plane, drag your suitcase trips. A visa is required and locks for all checked suitcases. Will have to figure out how to lock all those zipper compartments on one suitcase. In December will visit India and Indonesia. In the meantime will try to finish the ranch projects.
