Times are changing once again. All winter volunteers have  left the park. The snowbirds have left as well.
It’s time for the locals to come and come they have. In droves….
So the rangers and this year round volunteer are back to doing Scrub downs and other such jobs. Summer is still  not here as far as the calendar says and yet we are breaking heat and humidity records almost every day. Rain is still a problem as flooding continues.
We had one of our 2 roundups at the park. Met some new friends.
I lost a friend this past week. Long story there and one I will share when the time is right.
Danny is on his 8Th Late Field shift..
This coming week is his short week so he took the 3 days off. So we have another one of our Stay at home week off. PLEASE don’t call it a vacation.. We haven’t had a real one in 6 plus years. We haven’t gone anywhere off Rolling Meadows Ranch more than a few hours except for work. Even that was almost 2 years ago.
