Another beautiful day here in Dardenne Prairie it was 60 degrees at 04:30am which is really warm for this time of the year, got Nicole off to school at 0645AM, it is a 30 minute drive, I think she will be glad to go home and only have a 15 minute bus ride.
After I dropped her off in Augusta I came home and blogged for awhile and then took the truck to get it washed, it hadn't been washed since once up in PA. so it had a lot of salt and dirt from all the snowy weather we have had. it really looks good. All except for the black step rails I had put on when I bought it in 2004, they are rusting out, no way to save them , so I will either have to replace them with new rails or some kind of steps especially for Donna. Me and the son can get up easily but Donna struggles a little or if you are short like my sister it is a climb.
Had to go to Walgreens to pick up prescriptions and replenish the cold & flu medicine supply in the medicine cabinet, seems like all of us have had a turn and the supply was just about gone.
I went this afternoon back to pick Nicole up from school and surprised by taking a detour around my shortcut home, which just happened to pas a Quicktrip which I knew had an Ice cream cabinet, Nicole got a snickers cone and I got a Nutty Buddy, I wish we had Seven-Eleven stores here, Nicole had never heard of a Slurpee, Imagine never having had a Seven Eleven Slurpee. That will be on my list when the kid's are traveling on vacation with us to find them a Seven Eleven store. They used to be in MO. but QT is the big name now. and they don't have frozen drinks. My favorite was the root beer flavor.
Got home and was glad to see the last two piles of snow at the end of the driveway are just about gone, if it's warm tomorrow they should be history.
The Riggster and Sadie are enjoying the warm spell and spending more time outside, it's that time of the year though where you have to watch them for dragging mud in and keep a towel handy to wipe paws with.
Donna has the restaurant duty tonight so I have to think of some kind of a meat and potatoes supper for us,her at the home front.
Samantha is feeling better she is getting a lot of rest with me taking care of Nicole and cooking and is not in as much pain.
Here for those that miss the snow are a couple of sledding pictures from two weeks ago,

Adam just about airborne in middle.
This is a pretty good hill about three blocks from the house and it can really be a fast ride. Plenty of trees to stop you if you get carried away. It was below zero wind chill that day so everyone was in Carharts or snow gear.
Hope everyone is having fun wherever you are, Life goes on here at the Weeb Ranch in Dardenne Prairie, Until next time, be safe out there. Sam & Donna....
