Cool, cloudy, rainy-snowy, dreary, damp, shivery.
Pretty good day for rest. Which is a nice coincidence as my body said we were resting today. You know when you know.
So cals and mobility this morning and a two-mile meander.
Along the way Red and I looked at the old Evertson No. 1 oil well, which went in in about 1950 and pumped oil pretty consistently for 50 years.
It's pretty much abandoned in place, though technically and legally it is not. I don't know exactly how such things work, but I believe it's illegal to abandon in place and when wells are permanently retired they must be capped and the site remediated. Fun to look at the old one-lunger LP-fired engine.
Story of my life.
The ground around the storage tanks has eroded two feet since the tanks were put in place. The old tanks are interesting, bolted together from relatively small sections of steel. Lots of sludge down in the bottom. Nice view from up top.
Yesterday I returned to the new cafe in town, the one where Snow Girl and I ate Saturday night. This time I had the swiss-jalapeno burger and it was quite good. Better than a Big Kahuna Burger by far.
And no one shot me in the shoulder for saying "what" one more time.
It does seem to freak them out that "I don't want fries with that." They just nod and say "uh-huh." There are worse things.
Win a few, lose a few, it all evens out in the end.
Be well and embrace the blessings of liberty.
