    Hey Luke You cut the blog short. Reminds me of me having a senior moment. Sent you an e-mail this evening. Just checking in on you guys. Take care and your pet RoadRunner likes little hamburger balls made with fresh hamburger. That is what we fed our friend in New Mexico.

      Hi Bob thanks for checking in, sorry I am late answering but we have been without internet for about 6 days and every thing has fallen behind. Hope that you and your wife are enjoying the summer. Yes the Road Runner buddy ate Livers until he got grown up but now he will not eat any thing but bugs which in a plentyful supply. Hows the new boat docks guess that you guys will be going back to La before long HUH?
      Keep in touch Luke

      Hi Karen thanks, The wife and I are having fun out here in Texas. We too started out with Timekeepers, But after 3 months we moved over to Gate Guard services which to us seems to have better Equipment and care for the gate guards. Lord willing we will still be gate guarding when you return so by all means give us a shout. If you get near maybe we can visit.
