We got up at normal time, and had our coffee, Although Donna had the holiday off so it was pretty much a laid back day even Rigg’s was still played out from all the swimming and he took a nap this morning, and then roared back to life before the noon hour. He was in a play mood and wanted to show off his new duckey.
Please Dad play Duckey with me, oh boy, oh boy…
How do you refuse a face like this and those plaintiff eyes. You’d have to have a heart of concrete.
Had to make a Walgreen’s run for prescription’s of course one out of the three had to be called in to the Doctor’s so I will have to wait till tomorrow before it is ready, so that means another trip.
I am torn between two trains of thought, My sisters surgery on the 14th of October and my Grandsons Grandparents Day at his school on the 12th. If I try to be at both I only give myself a one day travel day. I originally wanted to be in PA. a few days before Wendy went in the hospital because I have to pick up a hospital bed and install it in her home, and I wanted to have everything ready for her. Now I am getting Flak from Donna about wanting to drive the full distance of 900 miles straight through . In all fairness to my dear wife, several bloggers have commented on the sanity of my decision and that at my age I am not a kid anymore and that it is a foolhardy adventure. I want everyone to know that I am going to give it some more serious thought, On one hand I really hate the thought of disappointing my only grandson who at 9 years doesn’t see the same realities as we do. But I also no my limits after driving a coach professionally and I am not a young guy in the service streaking off on a weekend pass from one end of the country to the other. Maybe I can sit down this weekend while we are camping and tell him what has happened and come up with a more attractive alternative for when I get back, Yeah I know it sounds like a con job to me too. Oh well I’ll have to see what I can come up with, It’s different now than when he was actually living here because I don’t see him as much with him living in a different town and being in school all week, plus his Mother lost her car, so he has no way to get back and forth or go anywhere without Grandpa so it will be a long month or more for him too.
Have to take advantage of the next couple of weekends for sure. Not much else going on in Dardenne Prairie today, even the road out front seems like hardly any cars going by today. Just about as lazy as it gets. Be safe out there. Rigg’s and I have a Duckey to play with..Sam & Donna….
