Saturday at home.

Well, didn’t get a Friday blog out, just got to be too late and I figured I would do one in the morning. Donna worked the restaurant last night , but she said it was a slow night, I want to thank everyone for the well wishes on my fall. I have been improving over the last two days with the swelling going down and the pain now is just a dull discomfort. Of course I may have helped it in not doing any chores outside and generally staying off it. I did manage to get two loads of laundry done so I am confident I am on the road to a swift recovery.

Got a pleasant surprise yesterday, when about 3:30PM my Grandson Adam called and said he wanted to come over Sat & Sun. I was so glad to hear from him as it had been two weeks since his Mom & my Sons spat.

I will pick him up about 110:00AM and our first stop will be Wally World so he can pick out his birthday present, I am then going to take him to this place where this guy sells used bikes and get him a bike to keep at our house, since he took his good one home. I wanted to have another one here for when he stays and when we take the trailer out.


The Three Buddies, Adam, Grandpa, & Rigg’s.

Donna is baking this morning, she is going to make big cake and decorate it for the Rally this week she will freeze it until we leave. She has found that if you freeze a cake it retains it’s moist taste, just the way I like it.

Rigg’s is just laying around watching Mom bake, now that the temperatures have gone down he is also enjoying romps in the back yard and generally terrorizing the rabbit and squirrel population. For some reason even being a Lab he doesn’t give a bird more than a second glance. I had to laugh when he tried to follow a squirrel up a tree and only made it a few feet before finding out his claws don’t grip like a squirrels. What a lop.

Well that’s about it for now, I will be leaving in a little while to go to Warrenton MO. to pick Adam up, ten the fun begins, Donna has a shift tonight at the restaurant. so Adam & I will have boys night together. Be safe out there, and watch out for low leaping kangaroo’s.Sam & Donna.
