The Terlingua MOON

TERLINGUA MOON – July 18, 2017
by Terlingua Thinking Team!!!

Watch the kids. Do like they do. Act like they act. Yell like they yell. Dance the ways you see them dance. Sing like they sing. Work and rest the way the kids do. You’ll be healthier. You’ll feel wealthier. You’ll talk wiser. You’ll go higher, do better, and live longer here amongst us if you’ll just only jump in here and swim around and sing like these kids sing and do like the kids do. I don’t want the kids to be grownup. I want to see the grown folks be kids. – Woody Guthrie

Six people inside Jeep as it was swept over 400 yards down a wash but they are okay.
The Big Bend National Park Service urges drivers to not attempt crossing over running water after jeep with six people inside it was swept over 400 yards down a wash. According to BBNPs Facebook page the vehicle was attempting to cross a stream less than 8 inches deep. In an image shared by their Facebook page debris is visible in the windshield of the vehicle. According to their post the water began stacking up once the vehicle stopped, pinned two doors shut and, filled the cab with water. Six people were inside the vehicle but were able to get out safely and contact rangers for help.

With dogs like Max in the shelter, why would anyone look anywhere else? This 12 week old teensy Chihuahua puppy lacks nothing except a loving owner. Max likes toys, wiggles adorably, and is happy to be picked up. He is a sweet playmate with other small dogs and no one else has adorable hairs on their nose like he does!!
