Sorry for not getting Mondays post done. I have been working out of town, and on Monday, I actually was very late for work, because I overslept. We’re doing the plumbing on a house in Possum Kingdom, which is about a two and a half hour drive. So I stay out at the deer lease. It’s two days and one night away, then one night home, and two days and one night again. Makes for a lot of driving, but I don't mind too much. After all I get to stay at the deer lease, my heaven away from home. I get to fish in the evening, and see those wonderful Texas sunsets.
The house I’m working on, is right on a finger of the lake. The third floor deck has a wonderful view, but of course I forgot to get a picture. I’ll get one next time around, and show you. It’s in a gated subdivision that has a golf course, and all kinds of amenities. The really neat part is there are deer all over the place. They have no concerns whatsoever about their close proximity to humans. The first day, I saw two bucks strolling down a fairway, as if they were headed to the clubhouse for a brew. The second day, on the way home there was a doe and a fawn, that was still in spots, right next to the road. Just grazing along, not a care in the world. Sights like that make the drive worth the time. You could say I almost like going to work.
I am working on Fridays Fantasy, but it probably won’t be posted until Saturday.
