Tuesday Thoughts.

Up early with my bride, and then she was off to the truck company.

Want to welcome our 138th follower, MICHAEL & DEE See you folks have emigrated from SA to Ontario Canada, and now are RVers. We sure hope you are enjoying your lifestyle and that you enjoy the antics that go on here at the Weeb Ranch, in between our trips and as we count down to a fulltime life. Hope to meet up with you someday.

Today is another mild, sunny day here in Dardenne Prairie. The temp right now is 56 and Rigg’s is loving it. He gets out and chases the feral cats that live under our wood pile in the back, I guess they have a nice warm safe den there as this is the second year they are here and Donna said she saw kittens last summer. They are smart as they know how far Rigg’s can get to them on his run and then sit outside the distance and watch him. The one looks to be 40 or 50 lbs it is a big one the other adult is a quite a bit smaller, don’t know if they are a mated pair.

Must be enough of a natural rodent food supply in the area to sustain them, although a few years ago they wouldn’t have lasted with the hawk population we had. But know that homes have been built you don’t see hawks as often.

Waiting for Nicole to get home from school, she was playing with the dog’s when she got home yesterday, and today will maybe want to go up to the park after school for an hour if it stays warm.

Today is our youngest son Andy’s 30th birthday, I know I am getting old now, he has decided he will celebrate it Sunday when Donna is off and we can all have a dinner out someplace. Happy Birthday Son.

Well that’s about it for today, I have a few minutes before the back door flies open and Nicole bursts through and starts in with Sadie & Rigg’s who will be thrilled to see her. Ah the noise will be great.

Be safe out there. Sam & Donna….


  1. Have never seen a real Feral Cat before. 40 or 50 lbs is a good size. Glad Rigg's is having a good time. Happy Birthday to Andy.

  2. Those aren't Feral Cats, those are Mountain Lions!!!
    Happy Birthday to Andy..You aren't old, wait till you have a 41 year old...now THAT'S a real shocker!!

  3. With a 50 lb cat, I think I would be getting the 22 out just to make sure things don't get outa hand. I know Riggs weighs twice that, but still the cat could do a lot of damage......

  4. Happy Birthday Andy. I can't imagine a cat that weighs 40 or 50 lbs. And just think - my hubby has a 48 year old. Now me, I'm just a young thing cause my son is only 25. (Just cause I had him really late in life doesn't count.)

  5. Tell Andy that Kevin and Ruth say Happy Birthday! Hope he had a great day and hope you have a good dinner on Sunday.

    Kevin and Ruth

  6. Happy birthday Andy.

    My daughter will be 45 in just a few months and my son-in-law is 52. I feel old lol!!

  7. Happy Birthday to Andy... and good for Riggins to keep an eye on those cats! Gotta protect Sadie Mae!
