Updates for October.

Bet everyone though we quit blogging.no just that nothing really newsworthy has happened. We haven’t hear anything from the lawyer on getting Sadie back yet, some people have asked what kind of proof we have that she is in fact Andy’s dog, all the vet Bills are in Andy’s and only Andy’s name, the chip she has is in Andy’s name.no where anywhere is Samantha’s name mentioned. still the Count Sheriff says that the court will have to decide.Back min my day as a police officer, with all that paperwork,I wouldn’t have needed court to tell me who’s dog it was, I would have picked her up and she would have got a free ride in a police car home to Andy.Anyway we still wait.

My Grand daughter  Meghen , horsewoman extraordinaire has collected another Grand Champion for a horse meet on the second of October.

Sadie Mae Stolen.

Big news in the last couple of weeks, It’s old news that Andy had broken up with Samantha , and she had moved out, well a couple of weeks ago she told Andy she didn’t have anywhere to live and asked if she could move in for awhile, Andy was good hearted and said yes, Well last week she said she was moving out and over a couple of days she was slowly moving stuff out, finally without saying anything she went out the porch door.Donna looked around and didn’t see Sadie, and when she looked out at the parking area, Samantha was putting Sadie in the car and driving away, She later told Donna on the phone she was keeping her and Andy wasn’t going to get her back. We called the police and reported her stolen, but he said they couldn’t go and get her and return her.Andy was heartbroken and furious, He went over to Samantha’s parents where she is staying, and they called the police on him.The police told him he would have to take Samantha to court and to stay way from that house.So The bottom line is we have retained a lawyer who says we  have a good case to get her back. It will be expensive money Donna and I really don’t have with all our medical expenses, but Sadie was Andrews dog, he raised her from a pup, so how do you put a price on that.

Speaking of medical issues, last Thursday Donna and I both went to our Doctor for our monthly checkups,he has been scheduling us together to make it easier for Donna with her oxygen tank. We both got good news and he said we are doing good, I lost a few pounds and Donna is at 107lbs still, her and Rigg’s are the same weight.

That’s about it for any more news, the fiver is still sitting, since it wasn’t used all summer it is still winterized, so unless we head south later this season it will stay winterized for now.

OH before I forget my Grandson Adam has got his learners permit, from DMV. he came by for his first visit in a long time just to show it to me,


He sure is growing up into a fine looking young man.

That’s it for now everyone be safe out there. Sam & Donna.

911 we will never forget.




Today I am dedicating my blog to Vernon Cherry, he is the brother of Jim Cherry a squadron mate and fellow Fleet Angel from my HC-2 days in the Navy,




Vernon and all the rest of his fellow members of Hook & Ladder Company 118 from the FDNY Middaugh Station were all killed in fighting the fires and trying to rescue victims of the Word Trade Center incident .

Things are looking up here at the Weeb Ranch, Donna is getting around a lot better since her boot was removed and is walking around  a lot more around here. The fur babies all are doing good, the weather is down out of the 90’s and more tolerable. Not much else going on. Hope all or friends are doing well, Be safe out there ,Sam & Donna….

Another Doctors visit.

Took Donna to her orthopedic surgeon, hard to believe its been 3 1/2months since she broke her leg, Good news, she had her boot/cast removed, the doctor said it looks real good and now to start getting some exercise, he said it shouldn’t take long for her to be back to normal on her feet, here is a print of one of her x-rays.
donna's leg
two beaks were between screws. The steel rod is down the middle of her leg bone.
The best news for her is she can start driving again again hopefully this will help her recovery a little bit if she can get out and mobile again.
Sadie’s new do, her brothers seem to like it too.
Maybe now we can take the trailer out for a short outing to see how Donna’s handles a short trip.
Nothing much else going on we are just glad for Donna’s good update on her health.
Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…

Happy Birthday Donna


Today is my bride Donna’s birthday, she is doing a little better with her  breathing and putting a little weight on, I was going to take her out to dinner ,but she said she just didn’t feel up to it, yesterday I took her to the DMV to renew her license and she said she felt self conscious about still having her boot on her leg, she said she can’t wait until she is out of it and can look girly again.I can’t blame her as it takes a bit of effort to get around so may be two days in a row is a little much.

I know I have been neglecting our blog but I have basically been staying around the house since Donna has been housebound, I may start taking Rigg’s for rides since he loves his Dad’s truck and Donna’s breathing is getting better.

The Grandkid’s are getting bigger starting with Adam he will by 15 Sept 8th

Reunion Tee Shirt.

As I said Donna is slowly doing better, her breathing has improved and she is just looking better rather than sickly like she was before, although she said no pictures yet. she has put some weight on and is eating better. next week she is going to the bone doctor and we are hoping she will have the boot removed from her leg and maybe start a walking therapy that she can handle with her shorter breaths.

That’s about it for now hope all is well with all out blog friends. Be safe out there.. Sam & Donna…..

nice weekend surprise.

Donna and i were relaxing on this gorgeous Saturday afternoon when Rigg’s went to red alert at the porch door.Out on the porch was a flower delivery guy for Donna.What a great surprise. Our good friends Paul and Helen Tempesta from Florida had sent Donna some beautiful  fresh cut flowers, They are so thoughtful we are certainly lucky to have friends like that. I can only hope Donna recovers enough to make another visit to their home.
