Grandparent's House Being Updated

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have almost completed updating the inside of what I call my Grandparent's house (see pictures of house across lake in lodging photos).  The inside (including a good amount of the electrical, all water, all plumbing, all septic, all AC etc) of the house has been, or is currently, being updated.  Next year the eaves and garage will receive hardiplank, and a new roof will go on the house.  So I have (or will have soon) a 1934 house for 2x4s, hardwood floors and wood rafters, and 2018 / 2019 for rest of the house.  I will be going to the house outside Clyde to observe the updates on it this weekend. Pictures of both houses / locations will be coming next week in photos / lodging.

The rifle range up to 400 yards should be done in the next couple of weeks, and maybe up to 1,100 yards by September 1.  Next year, I hope to have a five stand station / skeet & trap station.  We have a skeet thrower (wobbler etc or 2), but hoping to increase that capacity next year. 

The wild sunflowers / headed out winter wheat looks like it will provide ample food for the birds and we have several fields with that mixture.  What might not be so "hot" this year is the black oil sunflowers, milo and millet due to the lack of rain (2 inches since April in Winters).  Thankfully, Clyde, Abilene, Baird etc has received at least 4 more inches of rain than Winters.  

I will be at the Fort Worth Hunters Extravaganza show in Fort Worth August 10 to 12 (main entrance, go far right and up against the wall 953-F), so come see us.  In my opinion, if you are interested in going dove hunting with 24 Outfitters LLC, you might want to book that trip before August 10 to 12.

Hope you have a great week.  Pray for rain in / around Winters, Texas.
