Monday Meanderings.

Up at 04:30AM with my bride, and we had coffee. then she was off to the truck company.

I waited until about 11:00AM and then John Deere and I went out to start cutting grass, I did the front and the side acre and then the temperature had reached 88 degrees by 01:00PM so I called it quits, I was completely soaked in sweat. 88 is the record, so today will be a record breaker again if it passes 90 like it’s supposed to, we have had several record temps here in the last 3 weeks. I will finish up the back tomorrow before the days heat begins but it is only supposed to reach the middle 70’s.

I want to Thank all of you out there for your Birthday greetings, I truly appreciate them.

I must tell you those Filets and baked potatoes were terrific what a great way to celebrate a birthday, with a Q.

I started to make a list of what I need to provision the fiver for the trip,we have decided to travel light until we get to Fla. and then go shopping. But I still need to put things like ketchup, mustard, mayo, Beer , soda , water, coffee, and stuff that stays in there for the season. We will probably just stop and eat on the way down so we won’t need a huge grocery List, but I will put some of those frozen Delli hot dogs on a string, (spicy) in the freezer to have for the the trip.

Rigg’s and I are waiting for Nicole to get home. I decided since Donna will be home tonight for supper, I will make Bishketti for us and throw some Saziza Italian sausage in the sauce for Nicole and I , Donna doesn’t care for Italian Sausage. when we BBQ she will put brats on for herself. and Andy & Samantha.

That’s about it for today. Everyone be safe out there. Sam & Donna…


  1. The count down to travel is really getting close. We had some record heat here and today it was windy and only in the 70's. Very strange. But warming back up again hopefully not to the 90's.
