Up at 04;30AM with my bride and had coffee, then she was off to the truck company, no shift at the restaurant tonight but she has her every three month doctors (neurologist) appointment at 04:30PM so she will be late getting home tonight.
It was a cold but sunny day here in Dardenne Prairie, but it really got gray looking like the lights went out a little while ago, now it look like a winter day.
Rigg’s and I are waiting for Nicole to get home from school.
Don’t have a clue what to do for supper tonight, since Donna has the Doctor’s appointment who know what time she will get out of there.
We could have had left over pot roast, but Donna left the meat portion of it on a plate on the cook station, and after I left the kitchen, Rigg’s must have jumped up and stolen it. Boy was he in trouble. Samantha hadn’t eaten yet and there was probably a pound out of a three lb. roast left. Donna was fit to be tied and Rigg’s was confined to the corner for the rest of the evening and then she shut the bedroom door so he couldn’t come in our room last night.
I guess she forgave him because he was on the bed when I got done with my coffee.
But I must say he has good taste since the roast was excellent, at least the part I managed to get.
I read where GEORGE of Tioga and George fame has been the victim of two attempted robberies while inside his motor home in the last two weeks in Mexico. Since we have several friends down there in southern Mexico now we are naturally concerned. But I just have to think that in both cases they came away empty handed and George was not physically hurt or threatened that it might just be extremely bad luck. I also think that it depends a lot on the appearance you put up. In our case with a large and loud dog like Rigg’s who is sensitive to his property I think that acts as a big deterrent to the casual theft who is not armed. I know when KEVIN&RUTH visited here before leaving for Mexico they had a sign in the window of their motor home that said Beware of the Dog in Spanish. PAUL&HELEN also have the three big labs who I know would make a lot of noise if a stranger was snooping around the motorhome.Donna & I have talked about it and decided we would not be afraid to make a trip to the areas south of the border towns. There are several areas within a 40 miles of the house we live in now that are virtual war zones and I personally would not go into them after dark even armed. So I think the Mexico safety thing is still blown out of proportion, Plenty of people stay at the Casino RV park in East St Louis, which is the murder capitol of the Midwest. Yet a lot of those people would say Mexico is too dangerous. I guess what I am saying is with a little common sense you can feel safe anyplace.
Just voicing my opinion, your safety is a personal thing that everyone has to decide for themselves, Here in the USA I would have a gun with me along with Rigg’s, If I were to travel to Canada or Mexico the guns would have to stay home. It’s all in what you feel safe with.
That’s about it for today, Everyone have a great week and be safe out there. Sam & Donna.
