Up early, no coffee this morning still fighting stomach upset from the antibiotic I am taking. Just sat around the house and blogged this morning for a while. About noon I went to check for any new blogs and was saddened to hear from KEVIN & RUTH that their beloved  dog Whiskey had passed away early this morning. Whiskey was 15 1/2 years old and was still going strong when they visited with us earlier this month. We sure are saddened to hear this news and send our love out to Kevin & Ruth. We have had several dogs that were our companions for 12-14 years but never 15. It is tough to say good bye, as they are truly family.

Today was a another sunny gorgeous day with a nice breeze to make it feel good, I would have gone to the Lake if it weren’t for my stomach distress hopefully we will still have a couple of nice weeks left.

Then before you know it it will be time to winterize until we decide to take the fiver out again. seems like even with several trips and several weeks at the Lake the summer just flies by and that cold weather is upon us.

Looks like most of the full timers that were up north are heading for their winter destinations already. I hope one of these days we will be parked in there among you guys.

The highlight of the day was a trip to Shop & Save to pick up Bread, Milk, & Beer. That will keep us going for a couple more days until a real grocery run is needed.

Donna got asked to work again Sunday which makes it four weeks in a row without a day off. Something about one of her co-workers being in jail so they are covering that persons shifts, why don’t they just pay their tickets like most people do.

That’s about it from the Weeb Ranch. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…..


  1. Sure hopin' you're feeling better. I hadn't read about Whiskey yet. So very sad to lose one of our love furkids. I don't think I could handle four weeks in a row.

  2. I think Donna needs more than a day off!

  3. How about next time Donna gets a day off, you make just the two of you a nice romantic Italian dinner??? A nice glass of wine, a beer for you, some soft music and a relaxing conversation...You would get some big points for that, Sam...At least in my book...HEY! I need to give this idea to Dennis!!

  4. I think Donna needs to learn to say "NO"! Everyone needs a couple of days off a week.

  5. Hope you are feeling better!
    Poor Donna...she really needs a day off!! Bless her heart!

  6. Thank you for the kind words about Whiskey, we certainly will miss her but she did have a great life.

    Sure hope your stomach is feeling better and that you will be able to make it out to the lake before the cold sets in.

    Donna, you need to relax a little and let someone else to the work for a change.

    Kevin and Ruth
