Apache Smoke Signals
This should be a good sign. Although you can' read it, it says Apache workers have not missed any time due to accidents in 171 days, it is a hardhat area and NO SMOKING, etc. It does look, however, that the sign has been in an accident.
Now take ten paces forward and see the next sign: Oh look...it says DESIGNATED SMOKING AREA. As far as I'm concerned, there is NO place on the Diamond B Ranch, the county of Glasscock or the state of Texas that is safe for smoking. We under a burn ban and severe drought. I don't want these yahoos burning up my ranch.
Why am I having so much trouble with these folks? I solved the mystery last weekend. I spied these units sitting to the side of the drilling rig. I'm sure this is where they perform the frontal lobotomies and red-neck brain transplants.
