With some wheels, "Em" and I got to see just how big Texas really is ... it's big.

Also, made another new friend ... his name is Riolu ... can you find him? He's a fighting-type Pokemon and he's fierce! He showed me some moves.

It's time for us to go home to Virginia. I will miss all the friends I've made here ... they're fierce, too.

I was scared when I saw this owl looking down at me. She kept asking, "Who? who?" ... so naturally, I introduced myself and made a new friend.

Texas Windmill

This was just as much fun to watch as the oil pump.

Brazos River

This is me by the Brazos River. It means "The River of the Arms of God" and is the 11th longest river in the US. It goes all the way to the Gulf of Mexico ... just so you know.

Texas Oil Pump

These oil pumps are all over the place ... up and down ... up and down ... fun to watch.

Back Together

The mammas and babies back together.

Texas Ranch

These cattle are being loaded onto a trailer to be “worked” (branded, ears clipped, bull calves “cut” to make steers).

The mama cows are wondering where their babies are being taken.

I told them that their babies would be okay and be back soon.

Texas via Virginia

I arrived in Virginia just in time to go with my new hosts at ToadHaven on a quick trip to Texas.

We went on a plane and I got to look out the window!
