Saturday/Sunday Notes.

Up at 06:00AM with my bride, she had coffee and I had chocolate milk and a cinnamon bun for breakfast. I was a pretty nice day until about 05:00PM after Donna had left for the restaurant, then it darkened up and we had a pretty good storm with thunder and lightening. Rigg’s and Sadie are pretty good with storms as long as they can lay at their Dad’s feet.
Sunday we were up again at 06:00AM and Donna had her coffee, I had milk again, I have given up coffee for awhile to see if my stomach distress is being caused by it. I ordered a new surge protector for the fiver today, the one I ordered has a the additional feature of having a sensor that tells you if the campground power pedestal is improperly wired and prevents that from damaging you rig.I had been wanting to order one for the last couple of months but with the trailer in the shop it kept being put off, so now it will be here in a couple days. All things electrical should be covered then.
This morning I got a call from Adam, He said “ Grandpa I am on my break this week can you come and get me my Mom says it’s okay to stay with you.” I said sure, Hopped in the truck and headed for Warrenton to pick him up. He was thrilled as he considers it a weeks vacation from school and he knows we will do some stuff together.
The big winner early this morning was Rigg’s, Mom brought him a new Ducky toy home from work last night and gave it to him after coffee this morning.
                     Rigg’s and his new Ducky.
Donna had to go in to the restaurant and be hostess today on the day shift, So Adam & I will be in charge of having a hot supper ready for Grandma when she gets home from work…
I filled the fresh water tank on the fiver and will do all my checks for water leaks this afternoon.
Have you ever wondered what you would do if your Granddaughter went over to the dark side?
                    Use The Force Rigg’s..
Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Pizza night was last night since Friday I forgot to thaw the frozen dough. I made a large pepperoni and have half of it for later this week. The kid’s will enjoy it. Nick is at her Dad’s this weekend but will be home in the morning and then Adam will have a sister to play with during spring break week, He is tickled that Nick enjoys going to the park now.
What else can you say, WOW.
That’s about it for today. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…..


  1. Great blog! Enjoy your grandson . . . I know you will!

  2. Enjoy Adam while you can. It probably won't be too long before he's too old to want to do things with his grandpa. :)

  3. Judy's right...Our 13 and 11 year olds are growing away from us..But we still have a 9 year old, a 3 1/2 year old and a 1 year old...Guess that means we will be letting the littlest push us in our wheelchairs in a 10 years:-))

  4. enjoy your time with the grands...it sure doesn't take them long to grow up and then they don't want to be seen with us lol...we're anxious to get home and see our Hannah Grace

  5. Riggs is too funny playing - what a great dog!!!

  6. Sam, thanks for explaining about why you aren't drinking coffee right now. Although, as one diabetic to another, you might want to go easy on the chocolate milk and cinamon buns. Donna won't let me have those for breakfast, so maybe you can send me the ones you don't finish. I buy chocolate milk when the grand daughters visit, cause they like it...and I can sneak some sometimes! Enjoy your time with yours!

  7. Hope you don't get this little cold spell we're getting here in AZ. We can see snow just a few miles away on the Mtn tops....That's close enjough for that stuff...We did get about an inch of rain last night and I do believe its the first moisture we have gotten here THIS YEAR!!! It was dry!!!
    Take care and have fun with the kids....and the pup's!

  8. Have fun with Adam and Nicole. Our spring break is a week later and we will have two staying with us all week and then getting together with the local ones too. Gotta enjoy them while you can.
