This is some of the current junk Chico has brought into the frount yard. There is a shoe and a sock (I haven't found a foot, but I'll keep looking), a bottle (he prefers beer cans when he can get them), sticks, and old cow bones. Any paper or plastic products he brings home he shreds into a thousand pieces each about the size of a quarter. Yes, he makes a mess. And yes, he digs ALOT of holes. However, he looks at everyone in the family as if they were the greatest thing that God had ever put on the planet and he desires to be near us more than anything else. And who can ask for more than that.

He's got some strong teeth. He broke the camera lens, punctured the battery, chewed the antenna off, and filled it with tooth holes. I can't blame him though, he didn't drop it.
Luckily the SIM card was intact. I put it in the $20 Go-Phone we bought when Andy broke his phone and it's working fine. Live and learn. Anyone need a dog?

To The People of Texas and
All Americans In The World --
February 24, 1836
Fellow citizens & compatriots --
I am beseiged, by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna -- I have sustained a continual Bombardment & cannonade for 24 hours & have not lost a man -- The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise, the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken -- I have answered the demand with a cannon shot, & our flag still waves proudly from the walls -- I shall never surrender or retreat. Then, I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism, & every thing dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch -- The enemy is receiving reinforcements daily & will no doubt increase to three or four thousand in four or five days. If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible & die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor & that of his country --
VICTORY OR DEATH
William Barret Travis
Lt. Col. Comdt.
P.S. The Lord is on our side -- When the enemy appeared in sight we had not three bushels of corn -- We have since found in deserted houses 80 or 90 bushels & got into the walls 20 or 30 head of Beeves --
