Wednesday Musings

It was 33degrees here in Scranton when I got up at 05:30am, I looked at my blog and it was 63 degrees in Dardenne Prairie MO. The high will be 63 in Scranton and low 70’s in MO. Did I mention I found out the furnace isn’t working, Wendy said they had a repair guy out last winter and he got it going,but said it was on it’s last legs, looks like something else to attend to before the hard freezes start. Boy living in a 100plus year old house has it’s drawbacks.

Got Wendy’s hospital bed delivered and setup, then I had to make a grocery run, last night we dropped her car off to have some needed repairs while she is laid up and can’t drive.

Tomorrow morning she is scheduled to check in at the hospital at 08:30am, depending on how the surgery goes she may come home Friday. then she will be bedridden for 3 to 4 weeks. So I officially put on my  nurse’s cap Friday.

Took the truck to a body shop for an estimate, and they said it would only take a few hours once they got the bumper, so I won’t be without it for long.

Tonight is our dinner date with my old friend’s Rick and Barb Ferron, I will try for a picture.

Not much all going on it was another sunny day again.

Oh, before I forget I have continued to sign off with Sam & Donna and I think there are a few bloggers that think Donna was able to make the trip to Scranton with me, I wish that was true, but she is still working full time so my soul mate and I are separated physically, but her spirit is sitting right here next to me when I type these posts, and after all she is the brains of the outfit, so forgive me if I continue what I have always done.

Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.


  1. Now we can call you nurse Goodbody!!!!!!

  5. I can just picture you in a nice little nurses cap! :) Make sure you wash your hands often! Best wishes for your sister. :)

  6. Best wishes to Wendy as she goes thru this ordeal. Having first hand experience already this month, I just hope she recovers quickly and your nurse services aren't really needed too much!

  7. Sam, you have a heart as big as the great outdoors. Good luck in the nursing department.

    I hope the furnace can get fixed and that parts are still available. If anybody can get the job done....YOU can.

  8. Good for you Nurse Sam! I hope everything goes well with your sister's surgery tomorrow.

  9. Glad you can be there for your sister. May I be so bold as to ask what kind of surgery is Wendy having - if that's too personal please don't answer. If I missed it from an earlier post, please forgive me.

    Will be thinking of you, your family and all that is going on with you both in Scranton and in MO.

  10. Glad you can be there for your sister, blessings.

  11. Will keep your sister and entire family in our prayers. Stay safe up there...
