Thursday Happenings.

Was up early with my bride, and then she was off to the truck company & restaurant.

Today will be a short blog don’t know what happened but the day just seemed to rush by. Samantha wanted to surprise my son Andy with a night out to the see the Cardinals play the Brewers tonight in post season play, I got on the internet and after several false starts I located two tickets for $60 US a piece in the terrace section on the first base line. Total for just tickets was $127US , But the kids were happy and they claim will pay us back after pay day. So Nicole and I will hold down the fort. Figure with just one small trip to the snack bat and parking fees this will be a $175 dollar night, but also the thrill of a lifetime for these two young people.

Were hoping for the miracle of a world series here in St Louis again. We have had had several while we lived here and it is really a rush for the whole area. So far we have avoided the excesses shown by fans in some other areas.

Not much else doing. everyone be safe out there. Sam & Donna……


  1. Sometimes you just have to break down and blow the money on a good time.

  2. what a nice dad you are !!!!! I'm sure they will never forget this night out

  3. It will truly be a memory making event!! :-)

  4. what a great Dad you are..I vote for not asking them to pay it back..just let them go and have fun!!

  5. Surely one of life's pleasures. Take Me Out To The Ballgame!

  6. I think I've heard that story "I'll pay you back after payday" a few times myself!! Oh well, at least it's for something good so no problems!

  7. OK Sam..you gotta know how us Cub fans feel about you St. Louis teams..Hey, we just can't catch a break up here with our Cubbies!

  8. Great job on the numbers Sam. Now get out there and take Riggs for a walk each day and you'll be in top form with you start full-timing. Kevin is jealous that Andy and Samantha get to see St. Louis and Milwaukee play. As you know though we would buy the tickets and that would be it, no way will we buy any of that overpriced stuff, but that's just us!
