Cowgirl Up or Sell the Horse
The heat shimmered off the south Texas asphalt in waves as Coal Bryan drove through the sparse desert, the air conditioner in her ancient truck struggling to cool the air. She could feel a droplet of sweat slide down the center of her back before it soaked into the green tank top she was wearing. Reflective aviator glasses covered her eyes and protected them from the glare of the sun as she drove to her destination. It was barely seven in the morning and the temperature had already risen into the nineties. Just like being back in Afghanistan she thought as she focused on the road ahead. Even the large desert hares that would normally dart out in front of traffic were lethargic from the heat and remained deep in their underground burrows.
Melissa Conway fanned herself as she stood on the front porch of her ranch home talking with Stan Watson her ranch foreman.
“Damn this heat is brutal,” she said as she wiped the back of her neck.
“The weatherman claims we will get some relief later this week when that tropical depression moves inland.”
