Longtime readers will recall that Badger Bob, proprietor of the Spur Creek Farm, is building the ultimate 24-hour race course in West Texas. He reports an exciting development:
Good news! J and I spent spring break vacations building the long-awaited compost toilet thing at the farm.
It’s basically finished except for flooring, roof and, well, other stuff.
We are hoping to cover the inside walls with unique art, ranging from rusty old metal fertilizer signs to mummified rattlesnake skins.
We are hoping Mo will contribute one of her brilliant works to hang for all time in the C.T.’s airy enclosure/building/thing.
In return, you both will receive a free weekend at the farm and unlimited, private use of its ‘”unique” running/biking trails (watch out for the armadillo-dug hole on the back stretch of the Hillside “Leg Breaker” Trail).
Also, both of you will be invited to grand opening of the composting toilet thing, which will be named in your honor.
The “art sign” should be waterproof and not something a giant farm rat will want to nibble.
Mo is excited to be invited to exhibit at such a prestigious gallery. And we have the perfect artwork! It’s a Texas flag on an old piece of tin. Patriotic yet ratproof! We’ll have to get rid of Flat Stanley, an annoying visitor from the East who has totally overstayed his welcome and is cleaning out the Ugly Pug stash. It’s yours next time we visit the farm.
Thanks for the honor, Bob!
