Wednesday Musings.

Up with my bride and we had our coffee together.She was off to the truck company, and because it's Wednesday she will be heading into the restaurant tonight. I will just putter today and then later this afternoon pack some clothes in the trailer so I can hitch it up in the morning and head out to the Lake. I will probably stay there tomorrow night since Donna will be working and then Friday when Adam gets out early from school be waiting to pick him up and bring him to the Lake for the weekend. Today is Adam's 9th birthday, HAPPY BIRTHDAY ADAM, so I told him since we are going camping this weekend, when I pick him up on Friday we will stop at the Wal Mart in Warrenton MO. and he can pick out his Birthday present. That will help me so I won't have to try and figure what is the neat thing a 9 year old likes this year.
My son Andy & his girlfriend Samantha said they will probably bring her daughter Samantha out to camp and she is the same age as Adam so that will be fun.
Hope the weather cooperates for the weekend, Thurs and Fri isolated showers are forecasts, but then Sat and Sun the outlook says sunny. Maybe we'll get lucky.
Not much else going on around the Dardenne Prairie area today. Even Rigg's is low key and hasn't barked at any birds or rabbits in his yard.
Be safe out there, Sam & Donna..


  1. Oh yes, it's hard to know what to get the grands...A couple of ours are old enough now that I just get them a gift card...WHAT A LAZY BUTT I AM.... Have fun camping...again, I am jealous....lucky Adam.

  2. Good that you can take Adam for his BD gift. With us, our grandkids are in NJ, MD, TX, LA and Alabama. So it's giftcards once they hit 8 or so. Even their parents don't have a clue what they would want.

  3. Happy Birthday, Adam!! I wouldn't have a clue what to buy a 9 year old today. Good plan taking him to Walmart. Looks like you've got a great weekend ahead of you.

  4. Happy Birthday to Adam! This coming weekend will be the real present for him. :)

  5. Happy Birthday to Adam!! Hope he has a really fun time picking out something special from you guys!! I know you all will enjoy camping this weekend and I'll cross my fingers for good weather. :-)

  10. Happy camping Sam! I use to love buying birthday presents for my neice and nephews when they were pre-teens. There was so much that I would have liked to have that was appropriate for their age. I liked The Discovery Channel Store.
