Vacation In West Texas
We just got back yesterday from our family vacation to west Texas.It was great ,this whole week was awesome.My daughters stayed with their MeMa the first day so my husband and I could go riding it was awesome.Stopped outside of Johnson City to take this picture of one of my favorite works of art.Isn't it fantastic! The next day we grabbed the kids and MeMa and headed to west Texas.Destination Balmorhea State Park.A beautiful natural spring oasis in the desert.It only took us five hours or so to get there.I am not sure at exactly witch point the landscape changed from hill country to a beautiful mountain range but it is magnificent to see to say the least.It was near 100 degrees the water looked more than inviting it was pure heaven. We drove into the The McDonalds Observatory one night for the Star party.I am so glad we got the pictures along the way.Unfortunately it was overcast so we really didn't see anything except some great videos.It was a great time though and I think we all learned something. Another night we drove into the desert the Chihuahuan Desert to be exact.It was awesome we saw desert flowers, prairie dogs lots of strange bugs including a whip scorpion that I didn't get a good photo of because I was well,i'll admit it scared like a baby.LOL The snakes reside in a little section in the back of Balmorhea, I am so glad we didn't notice them till the day we were leaving.The whole their more scared of you lecture my husband laid on me was very little comfort.LOL Anyways there's no place like home and now am catching up.Back to work tomorrow.I think I can handle about anything.8)

Women Over Fourty 8)
This is what Andy Rooney thinks about women over 40: 60 Minutes Correspondent Andy Rooney (CBS) As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why: A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think. If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting. Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it. Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her. Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, 'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage! Andy Rooney is a really smart guy!
