Meeting my friend Jeff Arterburn tomorrow morning at the entrance to the Pecos Historical Monument--the old Forked Lightning Ranch that belonged to Tex Austin in the 1920s and then later to the actress Greer Garson and her husband. One makes reservations with the Park Service and pays $25 to fish a stretch of the Pecos River for the day. It's supposed to be 11 degrees in the morning--a high of 41. The river is low. I suspect I'm too old for this kind of nonsense, but I'm hoping . . . Got my long-johns laid out, anyway.
