    Sounds like you were right. Allergic to West Texas.

    Yes sir, we've bben having a huge issues with wild fires. So it got me thinking about all the crap in the air. Anyhow, the allergist wants to do some kind of delayed food allergy test...basically strapping small pieces of food to our son's back for 48 hrs. I don't think it's going to change much but it's an easy test.

    I used to live in Hobbs and it was one of the few places my allergies didn't go berserk.

    I tell you, I'm in the worst business in the worst part of the country now for my allergies! I have to take something every day or I'm dieing.

    Hope yall get that mess figured out Ray.

    Oh trust me I know about the fires. We have land in between Abilene and San Angelo, Bronte to be exact. Everyday we're praying for rain so that it doesn't burn up.

    We (Las Vegas USFS Fire Engine 451) are currently in Wichita falls for a fire assignment with task force 11. Just got done with several fires in the Abilene and Albany area. Weather doesn't look to favorable for rain in the near future but there are alot of us fire folks in the area ready to respond :)

    It's amazing how many oil and gas lines there are out here. Had several lines blow in a couple of fires so far but all part of the job. My thanks goes out to Texas for the hospitality and the opportunity to help out wherever we can. This is our second assignment out here and I have found nice people in each town we travel to.

    Oh ya, West Texas is covered with oil wells and pipe lines. Back in the day geologist got tired of running around in the heat looking for oil and started throwing rocks. Then they would drill a hole where ever the rocks landed lol

    Anyhow, I'm back home for a week. So if you end up in the Midland/Odessa area let me know and maybe we can get a coke or take the Raptor out for some fun.
