Paying work is slow at this time of the year. Beginning around Halloween things get quite busy. It remains so through Christmas. And then things slow down. Perhaps that should be a concern, but it’s not. There’s more time to ramble. On a recent Friday night, I came on two scenes worthy of photos. Seeing a cotton field in late-December seems odd, but there it was, a little east of Weir, Texas. It looks neglected. The other photo, a bit west of Granger, was a field I found enchanting. After finishing the photos, I noticed a sign ahead, letting passersby know this 28-plus acres is for sale. My hope, for what it’s worth? That a developer doesn’t transform this piece of Blackland Prairie into a subdivision.
