Up at 04:30am and had coffee with my bride, then she was off ay 05:30am, to the truck company and then the restaurant.
Nicole was feeling a little better so she was off to school, Grandpa had to go to Walgreens to see if I could find an affordable substitute for that $250 a month one we couldn’t afford, He found one that I can get a 3 month supply for $50,That’s a lot better, so he had to call the Doctor and get it changed, I knew that would take a while but before I left I found something that I was sure would make a sick 8 year old girl happy.
Nicky and her new Bear, she hasn’t named her yet.
The smile on a little girls face is something that makes this old Grandpa just want to spoil her more.
It was pretty cold here at the ranch today with a high of 34 degrees but a wind made it feel colder to you when you went out.
Other than that it was a slow day around here today Nicole just got home and is laying on her bed with her new bear. I will start supper for the two of us here in about a half hour, When I stopped at the meat market the other day they have frozen pizza’s like what I call bar pizza’s, the kind that bars heat up for you when you get the munchies and they don’t have a restaurant attached,you know a bar, bar, not a sports bar or eatery. Anyway these are fast and easy and surprisingly good. The kid’s love em and there's plenty of food for two people. Of course I’ll have to have the appropriate atmosphere in the kitchen and get my Millers iced mug out and wash it down with a couple of High Life Lights. The first Miller High Life I ever had was in a hotel on the Chicago Loop while I was on my way to basic training in Great Lakes Naval Station.
How about a old Locomotive picture,
DL&W 1505, 4-8-4 Pocono Passenger Engine.
Here she is in 1945 all dolled up for the engineer’s last run before retirement, He is holding his Grandkid’s, Imagine the excitement in the air. For you Ladies look at the fashion statement. If you click on it you will see they have installed electric light bulbs all along the boiler handrails.
Well that’s about it for now Have a great week, and be safe out there. Sam & Donna..
