Life in the country is NOT boring!

Like my blog heading says....sometimes our days are boring, other times an adventure! Unfortunately, these past few weeks have been quite the opposite of boring. Today, we had inmates escape from a prison about 5 miles from our home. I was leaving the house for my kid's golf tournament when I noticed all the commotion. Helicopter, cop cars, a big truck that had the State of Texas seal on it.....'s their picture and the report:

Two inmates have escaped from a prison in Dilley, Texas, state officials say.

Texas Department of Criminal Justice officials say Jose Bustos-Diaz, 21, and Octavio Ramos Lopez, 27, were last seen Tuesday morning. Officials believe they cut through a fence and escaped the Briscoe Unit of the Dilley jail on foot.
The jail is about 75 miles southwest of San Antonio.

Bustos-Diaz is serving 35 years for a murder that happened in Harris County.

Lopez is serving 20 years for two counts of aggravated kidnapping, and he's serving another 12 years for possession of cocaine with intent to deliver. The crimes happened in Hidalgo County.

Living in the country is supposed to be day I wish for the return of the peace!!!

Have a great, safe day!!!
