Tuesday Thoughts.

Had a good start to day the with coffee with my beautiful bride, the went down for some blogging, Before I Forget I noticed yesterday I have a New Follower, number 55, Dave, Welcome Aboard and I hope you enjoy the blogging, and the content. After the grass was dry John Deere and I went out for about 2 1/2 hours of leisurely cutting, I haven't taken the three blades off in about a month so they have about 4 good cuts on them and so I decided to slow the pace slightly since as they get dull they have a tendency because of their weight to knock some of the taller grass down instead of cutting it if you slow down that doesn't happen. I try to sharpen then once a month and after two season's I replace them and I usually get a nice level cut.
My oldest son Sam sent his Mom some picture's from his business trip to Singapore, he said it is a 20 hour flight there, and 18hours to get back. He also said business wise the trip went fine, but he was sick and suffering from jetlag most of the time and didn't get out to do much sightseeing with the limited time he had, he sent some pictures from the Hotel.

From the pictures Singapore looks like it has quite a skyline and is a modern bustling metro area.
I had to laugh this morning Donna said when she was watching TV last night Rigg's as usual was bugging to play ball and for attention as usual, after a short period of no attention she said he hopped up and put his feet over her lap and hooked his paws on the arm of the chair on the other side and then held on, she said she was effectively trapped in her chair until she said okay get the ball. What a guy Rigg's, hope you know that won't work with Dad. He found out yesterday that when he steals something and tries to run around the couch, Dad will reach over with a broom and spank his behind. No place to hide Rigg's, Dad is still bigger and smarter. How do you hide 100lbs of Lab anyway he doesn't fit under anything anymore.
Hope everyone has a fine day, Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.


  1. Great pictures of Singapore. I have a Dear friend from there and still talk to her often, if not in person, then by email. Great post.

  2. Labs are real attention hounds. Ours just wants to be touched constantly. Like Riggs he too comes up with some crazy ways to get what he wants and he won't take no for an answer. God help you if you have a ball in your hand.

  3. Puppies are incredible! I love your humor with him! Great shots of Singapore. Makes me want to visit.

  4. a ball..a stick..a lake..whatever works for our 'golden boy'...nice skyline in Singapore..did not know it was so beautiful!!

  5. Dogs can be persistent, and think of all kinds of ways, to get our attention when they want to. Riggs is a pretty smart pup from the sounds of it.

  6. Great pics of Singapore your son sent along for all of us. Thanks for sharing them.

    Riggs is a character, that's for sure.

  7. Ohhh silly Riggs!

    Duchess was like that, she grew so fast, she kept forgetting that she was too big to scoot under the coffeetable --- and would sent and everything on top of it flying in all directions!
