Saturday Mumblings.

Was up at 06:00AM, had my coffee and watched a sunny day start here at the campground. Looks like about 5 more rigs came in last night, Even a neighbor right next store in site 14 who was here before and has two kid’s that Adam plays with , He will be happy. The plan is to go to the Lake beach,and meet Adam’s Mother and Aunt Robin, and his two cousins about noon.

Adam was up at 09:00AM as soon as he heard about his friends he was out the door like a shot. Don’t know when I will be able to post these last two posts since I haven’t ventured out the gates in two days. Here are some shots from the beach from Saturday.




                   Adam & his Mom. She was checking to see if he was properly covered in sunscreen.


Matt, Aunt Robin, Rob, Shana(Adam’s Mom).

Even with one rainy day this week has flown by m we got here Wednesday early stay until Monday afternoon., I know Adam is really enjoying himself  with his Grandpa, sometimes we just sit and talk, and Grandpa will tell about things in life and my experiences and it is so neat to see his face as he sits and listens and asks question, His Aunt Robin wanted to know if one weekend I would take the boys camping as they had told her I was one of their favorite Uncles and they thought Adam was so lucky to have such a neat Grandpa. I told her sure, why not, I raised four boys so three will be nothing.

Isn’t it funny as you enter the final years of your life on this planet, you finally realize that there is a place for you to be a role model for these young men, Wow what an awesome responsibility to live up to. I never thought of myself as someone special or talented, but both of these young Moms said the boys really think of their Grandpa & Uncle as a special guy who has done so much in life. I told her most of it was a lot of fun too. Flying, motorcycling, law enforcement, trains, traveling, RV’ing, you name it . they are all fun and I enjoyed doing all of them.

I hope you all are as lucky as me and have the company of your Grandkid’s and Niece's & Nephew’s, while your with them share a memory, give em an Indian head rub, or a chuck on the chin. Just be silly with them, Like Donna has always said Sam has always been at ease around children, after all they are all the same age in mind. That my friend’s is a gift from God, not everyone is lucky enough to have it.

Hope you all have had as great a week as we did. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.


  1. I'm sure the boys will learn a lot from your past experiences. You certainly would have some good stories to tell.

  2. A great time spending it with Adam, these are memories he will have forever!

  3. Great post, Sam. No doubt, Adam and the rest will always remember the great times they've spent with you camping.

  4. Sounds like you are having a great time up at the lake. Adam is very lucky to have such a fun and loving grandfather. It is nice to see the all the kids look up to you. You are a great role model for them.
