Saturday Mumblings.

Was up at 06:00AM with my pretty bride, and then I found out the power was off to the outlets on one wall of the family, room. This wall contains Andy’s computer desk and out spare fridge, which was off  but still cold (No lights inside either). I tried all the breakers and nothing, I then read all of them with a meter and they all had power. so my only guess is the wall sockets on that side of the room are gang wired and something is disconnected at one of the sockets.I went into the garage and got a heavy extension and ran a power line from the other side of the room and everything has power for now. Will have to get somebody that knows wiring to help me with this.
Adam is anxiously awaiting 04:00PM to roll around as his Dad is taking him to a Motorcross meet at the Dome downtown, he is going to park in St Louis County and take the Metrolink light rail down from there. What a thrill for a kid. Motorcycles and a train ride.
Rigg’s and I will have the homeland security detail here at the ranch. Donna is working the restaurant so we will be home alone, along with Sadie, Samantha is going with the boys.
Well that’s about it it’s been a nice sunny but very cold day here in Dardenne Prairie, low this morning of 19 and a high of 32. Hope everyone is having a good weekend, Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…..


  1. Hope you can figure out the power problem without it costing an arm and a leg. At least the power isn't out all over the house, gotta keep that beer cold, ya know!

    Kevin and Ruth

  2. Might have to add a few more breakers to the panel box and split those plugs.

    That cold weather you expect by being home but it only made 52F today and could freeze the next few nights here on the Gulf Coast. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. So your home alone,,,don't get into any trouble now. Stay out of things,,,,:-)You don't have one of those (Shucks, I can't think of the name of them right now) plug ins with a breaker fuse in it do you? Oh, it a GFCI plug. It could be knocking those other plugs out.. Just a thought,,,,

  4. If it makes you fell any better, it is 10 degrees here this morning and we are suppose to get more snow on Tuesday...YUCK!! If McGyver were down there, he could help you with your electricity..he rewired our whole house...

  5. Use it for an excuse to drive down and visit for a few days you can use the guest bedroom and not haul the fiver, just the good mileage on your Duramax truck, you should get 20 mpg like I do. Sam & Donna..

  6. Sorry to hear it's so cold there. Hope it warms up soon.
