Got up just as Donna was pulling out of the driveway for work, so I had to have coffee alone. We had a great dinner last night at a nearby Restaurant called Noll's, Donna got an order of Spedini for an appetizer, and then a Three Cheese Pasta dish, I ordered a Pepperoni with extra cheese Pizza, That way I have a guaranteed lunch for tomorrow. the food was great and we both came home with full tummies.
Went down to the computer and noticed I have I have three new followers, I want to give a warm welcome to Margie & Roger who I have been reading for a while and are like old friends. Karen from Country Living in Georgia. And Pidge from The Frugal Travelers. It looks like Karen was my 50th follower boy time has a way of roaring by, I can remember my first blog in Feb. and wondering if anyone was going to read about such as boring life as we lead. But hang in there, there will be adventures to come I am sure, between Rigg's and our grandson Adam something will pop up at anytime.
Today I will make a trip to the Train store, and pick up some fuel for John Deere on the way back and go over the grass again, it hasn't grown much in a week so it should be an easy 2 acres this afternoon, they are saying sunny weather in the middle 80's and lower humidity for another 5 days so I can live with that.
Just got back from the train store, Mark Twain Hobby in St Charles they had 3 new magazines for me, so I will have some reading for a couple of nights, also stopped at Dirt Cheap and got a bottle of Annisette for the camper, nothing like a little octane booster in your coffee when you camping.
Going out in few minutes to jump on John Deere to spend a couple pleasant hours mowing, it is cooler now so I don't mind it and there's always cold water in the fridge.
Hey I just noticed no pictures today how about some Navy stuff, here's a couple of my favorites.
LCDR Mitchell had to eject from this Photo RF-8 not long after this was taken and we picked him up safely from the ocean, enjoyed having a drink with him after the rescue mission.
Gosh it was great to be young and without fear, to bad you can't keep going like that forever. But we all at some point have to accept the fact that we are ageing and slowing down. Now that I have a Grandson I watch his face when he sees these pictures and the wonder in his eyes when he realizes what fun grandpa had as a young man. Although I secretly hope he will not be called to follow in my footsteps. Hey you'all be safe out there, pardner, how's that for southern style, maybe even south Canadian. Sam & Donna.
