Quite a Saturday night in Dardenne Prairie, about 09:00PM a tremendous thunder and lightening storm came through, the power was off from 09:00PM to midnight. Donna said a house in the new subdivision across the road from us was hit by lightening and caught fire and the police and fire department were over there and also at another residence a block away so maybe two houses were hit. It has rained steady all morning and when I went out the go the store, I found a large tree limb had fallen across our driveway, blocking it, I hitched a chain to the truck and pull it straight, but I was soaked, so I will wait until the rain stops and trim it with the chain saw and then hitch John Deere up to it and pull it into the back yard. We can still get out on my neighbors drive so it isn't a big deal. On the way to the store I saw the power company was still working in the rain replacing a pole that was snapped off when a large entire tree fell on it. That must have been what caused the power outage. as it was only about a block from the house.
Limb across the drive.
Adam & Grandma spent the morning working on cakes for the Rally this week.
Adam the icer.
Look's like even Rigg's wants to help.
Adam wanted to show off his birthday present.
Rigg's after I said cheese.
Here's the second one. Good Sam.
Hey before I forget I finally got a picture worth showing of our hummingbird that has been successful in eluding the photographer.
Sam is going to mix up a batch of his famous Grandma Genett meatballs from scratch and tonight we will have Spaghetti and Meatballs. His Grandmother Genett was born in Italy and was his Mom's mother, she was famous for her cooking, even homemade spaghetti noodles, pasta and bread, anybody remember "pizza frias".
Well that's about it for today, Adam had a great stay at his Grandparents this weekend and got to play with his buddies Brandon and Taylor, he also learned how good it feels to give rather than receive, when he decided it would be a good idea to give Brandon's new little brother his battery powered Gator that he is to big for this year. Of course some lessons in life are a little tougher to decide on than others but he knew he made the right choice when he saw the little guys face when he saw his "new Gator". Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.
