Thursday Happenings

Got up early for coffee with Donna,Then she was off to the truck company, and then the restaurant, She came home early from the restaurant last night because a large party that had been scheduled cancelled due to all the storm warnings again yesterday. can’t blame some of them but me personally I would rather go out in a flash with a beer in my hand.

Same weather today rain and gloomy all day and no warnings for a change have,’t heard the tornado siren since yesterday hope they haven’t burned it out.

Okay now for the big news KEVIN & RUTH-Travels with Kevin & Ruth some of our blogger friends from up in the wild Canadian land, will be hosting the drawing of an RV Cover. Wow how’d they score a prize like that, All I could find was software when I had my drawing. Anyway make sure and click on my link above to see the contest details, and you will also be getting the benefit of reading some great travel experiences as Kevin, Ruth and their dog Whiskey travel Mexico, The States and their homeland Canada. Donna & I follow them daily and really enjoy their blog.

I had been thinking of taking the fiver to the lake this weekend but with a wet forecast for the holiday weekend I will wait, also Donna has a girlfriend that asked us to come to her daughters Graduation party Sunday so it will be easier to do this way.

I really think most of the campgrounds won’t have the normal holiday crowd this year as is usual, none of the lakes are warm enough to swim in yet because of the unseasonable cold spells we’ve had. I would imagine even the pools will be cold unless they have a heater.

Donna & I are counting down now until June 16th when we will leave for our Illinois, Wisconsin trip in the fiver, I am sure Rigg’s is anxious to get out camping too. Poor Sadie will be guarding the home front with Andy, Samantha & Nicole while we are gone.This will be the first we won’t have kid’s or Grandkid’s along for a vacation in a long time.

Not much else going on here at the Ranch the dogs are just laying next to my chair while I am typing this.


Life is great when you have a big brother to protect you.

Here’s a blast from the past:


“Any landing you walk away from is a good one..”Author unknown..

Be safe out there. Sam & Donna……
