Riggins with little brother Charlie and little sister Sadie.

Okay for anyone that didn’t know today April Fools Day is my birthday, I am not ashamed to admit I have made it through 63 years on this planet, and I hope for a few more.

Donna & I will celebrate Sunday when she is off and makes me a sugerless birthday cake,

My son and his girlfriend Samantha gave a a really neat screwdriver set with a speeder and flex drive and all kinds of bits including picks and and a telescoping magnet, the perfect thing for the fiver as it doesn’t take up a lot of room and the bits can be used with a cordless drill/driver.


Samantha works at Lowes so that’s where you can find them and the brand name is Kobalt.

It is so neat to get excited over a nice thoughtful gift that will be useful when we go fulltime.

Looks like it will be a quiet weekend, Nicole is going to her fathers for his weekend, and Adam won’t be here and Chris is at his father’s for the weekend also, so it will sure be quiet here. I think if it get warm enough we will take Rigg’s to the Doggie Park, I know he will love that.

Adam made the Honor Role again this reporting period here is his paper from the last reporting period that ended in Oct. I didn’t have a scan of the one he just got.


                  Is Grandpa proud or what?

Nicole and Chris are doing well , Nicole has a chance at the Honor Role, but Chris needs to buckle down like his Grandpa did. I hate to admit it but I always passed but it was a struggle.

What do you expect from a guy who in college majored in beer & women.

Not much doing, celebrating my day with a frosty cold High Life Light.

Hope everyone is having a good time, Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…
