Since I starting to coming to the Texas and Louisiana area in 1988 I keep seeing Armadillos. Dead on the road. The first time I saw a live one was last year when we were walking a path in a National Wildlife Refuge down near Mercedes, TX.
Yesterday Len was checking in a truck when I heard him call my name. I went to the door and he pointed to an area about one foot from the gravel road that goes back to the well and is in front of our rig. Yep, there he was, Armadillo digging a hole. He was about twenty feet from our front door.
I quickly grabbed my camera. I got it out of the case. I took the lens cap off. I flipped the viewer. I pointed it to the area where Armadillo was digging. I saw the back end as he ran off into the woods. Maybe next time.
I did hang our Hummingbird feeder last week and we have frequent visitors.
Or another note:
I am starting to consider something. Our 7 year old granddaughter has many allergies, among them gluten. I've heard often people talk about feeling better once they eliminate gluten from their diet. Today I read an article about signs of gluten intolerance. Got me lots of them.
A little earlier this evening a gate guard who started last night 2 miles down the road stopped by. She had a few questions as this is her and her husbands first time as gate guards. In conversation she remarked she stopped eating gluten some months ago and feels so much better. I thought what a coincidence she brought this up as I read the article just hours before.
Can I give up bread? cookies? cake? pasta? all made with WHEAT. I tasted Charlotte's rice bread - no thanks. However the pasta, noodles and some of her cookies are not that bad. Thinking I might have to give this a try.
What are your thoughts? Any of you on a gluten free diet? Has it made a difference?
