Sunday Notes.

What a great Christmas Day, but now it is history and Donna & I had a great night home alone ,Donna got a call at 01:30am that the kid's arrived safely at Samantha's Dad's house in Stillwell OK, yesterday I said Clearwater OK. but I stand corrected. They will be back on Thursday night, so we will have several days of "home alone". Before I go any farther I want to wish Donna's brother Pat Sr. a very Happy Birthday, today is his Birthday and we are all praying for some good news in his wife's progress with the cancer that was discovered in her vocal chords. Please add her to your prayer list . Maybe we will have better luck with the New Year coming.

This morning Donna took a shift at the restaurant from 10AM-3PM when she got back she said it was really dead. She did say that all week up until Christmas she was very busy and did well for a change.

This morning I decided to clean the fireplace flue, it had an obstruction that I found a couple days before I left for PA. so the fireplace could not be used, instead of going up on a snowy roof I had enough hose from several shop vac's and a brand new shop vac that I sent it  up the flue and cleaned it all up, Then I built a test fire, and it drafted like a champ, no smoke backup at all. Now we can start saving on our electric bill with a wood fire, that will keep the house toasty warm.

Not much doing, I think Rigg's is missing Sadie as she went for the trip to OK and he is alone to now, he makes up for it by bugging to play with us more.

Be safe out there. Sam & Donna..


  1. Sounds like you two are having a nice relaxing day. I love an open fire. So relaxing and cozy. Happy New Year.

  2. We will certainly keep Donna's brother's wife in our prayers.

    There is nothing better than a good fire to keep you warm on a cold night.

    You guys take care and enjoy your "alone" time.

  3. I'll think positive thoughts about Donna's brother's wife. I can just imagine you guys having coffee by your fire!

  4. Very quiet around here too now that everyone has left for home so I know exactly what you mean. Rylie has lost her playmate Lola and now only has Molly to bug!!

  5. C'mon Sam, take advantage of your time 'alone'. A romantic fire...etc, etc. :)

  6. Home alone is always good but a wood fire crackling would make it even better! Enjoy!

  7. Looks like you and the furballs had a great Christmas. It always seems so quiet after all that hustle and bustle! My advice...enjoy it and that crackling fire!

  8. Yup it sure is nice to enjoy a lovely fire in the fireplace. But would much rather be enjoying a CAMPfire in a rock ring pit with a group of RVers in a nice warm campground somewheres!!!!
