Wednesday Musings.

We were up at the usual and had our coffee, it was about 7 degrees with a wind chill of -15 degree's, Donna's car is in my garage stall and my truck is outside because my son's race car is in her stall.I finally got down to the computer after Donna went to work, Then later in the morning my Son Sam in New York told Donna his brother Tim had made an unexpected visit and said to say hi to Pop. Out of the blue she suggested that I try to find a Facebook address for our Granddaughter ( Tim's Daughter), so I fiddled for about a half hour and I never really find anyone it's like Skype , if you don't know exactly what the person is using the search is useless, I did however find one listing for an Allie Weibel no address but it had a picture of a very pretty young lady so I decided to take a chance and ask for a friendship since we haven't had any pictures sent for many years, I thought it was a possibility since she is 18 years old now, so I sent her a message telling her who I was and did she live on that street, well it turns out it is my Granddaughter and she sent me a confirmation and a couple of messages, I sent her my e-mail address and my blog website, I am extremely a happy camper this afternoon, as my son Tim doesn't ever call and we haven't been out to New Jersey to their home in years.

It turned out to be a double header as Allie  Had my Son Rick's address and I finally got in contact with him since our last trip east.


            My Son Rick & his girlfriend Stephanie.

Allie has a boyfriend named Rocco, I am sure he is of Italian ancestry, so I told her I would make a pizza today and post a picture of it so they could drool over it.


Here you go Kid's what do you think..

It has turned out to be a really neat day for us, and I hope we can stay in contact with the kid's in New Jersey now better.

I hope everyone out there is having a good day and the temperatures start to rise soon for all of us, I sure wish we could see our way through to a trip south this spring, but right now it isn't looking that way. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna......
