Tuesday Thoughts.

Up early with my bride, and then Rigg’s and I slept in until Donna left for work and then I went in the kitchen and started reading blogs.
I want to Welcome our 142nd follower, RUTHIE G. didn’t see a blog for her but welcome aboard Ruthie and I hope you enjoy following the antics of our group here at the Weeb Ranch and when we do get to make a trip as we prepare to set out on a fulltime adventure. Hope you are a pet person as Rigg’s & Sadie will do their best to help keep everyone on their toes around here.
Want to thank everyone for the pleasant welcome back after I got my internet service back yesterday, wow over 100 e-mails to catch up on, my Railroad Historical Society keeps me busy on most of them, plus trying to read the blogs I missed, I also like to keep current with a group of photographers that I trade train pictures with. Just about all of this is done by the internet.
Donna commented to one blogger that I was beside myself, without the internet, and AL From the Bayfield Bunch commented “I'm surprised clinics haven't sprung up around the country to help folks through the troubled times.....”. You know Al may have something there. But I was amazed at the times I went to the computer to do something, and found out it was linked in some way to the internet. So I was out of luck. I did go once to McDonalds to use their free wi-fi with the laptop to make a quick post to let everyone know I was down and out of service. But things have gone back to normal and I believe there is an improvement in speed although even before our DSL seemed plenty fast, but now when I download a train picture it just appears on the screen like it was cached, before if it was a big file it would scroll down a little slower.
Waiting with Rigg’s for Nicole to get home from school, then let the games begin. she will be full of energy and Rigg’s & Sadie will be more than happy to help her burn it off.
Before I forget again I received a copy of a certificate that Adam got from the MO. House Of Representatives, we are all so proud of him and the internet went down before I could brag. Here ya go.

                        Adam’s Certificate.

It’s sunny and about 45 today at the Ranch not bad for winter time, were supposed to get two days of rain and the temps are supposed to be in the 40-50’s for the next two days so maybe no snow. I’ll take the rain anytime.
That’s about it for today, hope everyone is having a great week. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna..


  1. Nice to have a proud Grandpa. Congratulations Adam!

  2. Congratulations, Adam. Way to go!

  3. It's always a proud moment when kids make the honor roll.

  4. Way to go Adam. Keep it up. I am so glad to be back with half way decent internet also. Had a great time in Q but so frustrating with the poor internet. Thought of you this morning as we were rolling out of Q. Saw a rig coming in that had been painted to look like a Santa Fe RR engine. Very different looking and i sure wish I would have had the camera handy.

  5. congratulations to Adam...glad to see your back on line and faster than ever :)

  6. Way to go Adam. Keep up the good work. Sam, I love that you are so proud of your grandkids and not afraid to brag on them. They will remember that forever.

  7. 142 followers! I got excited when we got our 42nd. Congratulations!
