Sad day and interesting pictures

First, I'd like to say it's a sad day here in Rankin, we are having to bury one of our most beloved sons today. My co-worker's brother-in-law passed away very unexpectedly Wednesday evening just as he was finishing up the day working on his ranch in South Dakota. Bill was only 48. He is survived by both parents, his wife and 2 children, his 3 brothers, their wives and his many nieces and nephews. He worked on his ranch in South Dakota during part of the year and the other part at his family ranch down here. He is going to be sorely missed by everyone who knew him. So, keep our little town in your thoughts and prayers as we come together today to celebrate his life and lay him to rest. Thank you!

Now, on a lighter note, wanted to pass on some photos that could very well have been taken by any of us out here in West Texas these last few weeks as spring has finally sprung! Out here we all knows what that means-watch your step when you go for a walk...

They meet...
They court ....
They shake a couple of rattles...
And then off into the sunset...
Don't need that walk today anyway, think I'll just go play my Wii Fit!

Oh Nikki, I'm so sorry about the loss of a town beloved. His family is in my thoughts and prayers.
Those rattlers looks kinda scary!
