It’s hard work, but someone has to do it!

We do love our Ranches in Texas. My oldest daughter has been dating a rancher for a little over 5 yrs. They are planning on getting married next March. Yesterday I got to spend some time with her at “the ranch” This is a real working ranch. My soon to be son_in_law works on his families ranch. He has his own place on the ranch and works cattle as well as working for his father, who also owns an engineering co. I took some picture so you could get an idea how ruff it is being a rancher.

Let me tell you .. it is hard work laying out in the sun in the Texas heat !! ( but this helps.. lol)

After those hard days of rounding up cattle how about sitting in this to relax all those sore muscles ?

One of the many buildings that houses all the things you need to run a ranch. Including kennels to house hunting dogs.. that BARK all the time.

I only took a few pictures as we spend the afternoon sweating by the pool .. hahahah The main house is on the other side of the pool.

I enjoyed my day.. it’s not often that I get to spend time alone with Charity. The best thing about her falling for a rancher is that he is a “good ole boy” who works hard and is really good to her and my grandsons.

Needless to say.. we are both dealing with sunburns today.. but hey, being on a ranch means we have to suck it up and deal with it !!

I had a simply wonderful time. It’s really nice to get away now and then. It couldn’t get much better than laying around out in the middle of nowhere doing nothing. Sometimes life really is good. Yesterday was one of those days.
