Sunday Shorts

Well I am getting to this late, I just got back from taking Adam home to his Mom’s in Warrenton MO. We stopped to fill the truck with fuel and he helped with that, he likes doing guy things.When we got to his house he was kind of clingy with his hug and I told him that a month goes by fast compared to a lifetime and that Grandpa would call him every Friday after to school got out to see how his week was and he could count the calls and after four it would probably be almost time for me to come home and him to spend a weekend and do some cool stuff, like maybe a movie and Pizza Street.

This will be the first time we are apart for that long since he was born. Looks like I’ll have two little boys moping, Adam & Rigg’s.

But he did have a good weekend and got to play with friends and go to a birthday party so all was well around  the Weibel house.

I will spend Monday and Tuesday packing what I want to take with me in the truck, Then the plan is to leave real early Wednesday, probably when Donna leaves for work at 05:30AM and drive until someplace north of Columbus OH. on I-71,Maybe a truckers motel ,Have a nice meal and a couple of cold ones, Then head out early Thursday and arrive in Scranton in the afternoon some time, won’t have to kill myself or get in a hurry and I can just relax and do the speed limit.

Of course the camera and laptop will be with me so I will try to keep the blog going while traveling and when I am in PA.

A couple of bloggers are in the Northeastern PA area and I will try to touch down with them during my stay.

Who knows the Bayfield Bunch may come down I-81 in there southern trek, they might stop for a coffee at a truck stop or something.

Anyway hope everyone had a good weekend, be safe out there. Sam & Donna.

  4. I seem to remember that good old Rigg's might be having something else on his mind while you're gone. :) At least Adam doesn't have to worry about that!

  5. Sounds like a good plan for your trip, Sam. I'll be looking forward to hearing about it whenever you get a chance to write a blog.

  6. Take care and enjoy the scenery on the way. All the best.

  7. That windshield time will bear rgw hell out of the view from the hospital window, so have fun with it!

  8. Have a safe trip. Travel back East is tough, so stay on top of it.

  9. Oh gosh what a tug at the heartstrings when you told of dropping Adam off at his moms.

    Here's to time passing by fast for him, but also your sister cherishing every minute you are there to help her too.

    You have earned your halo AND your wings!
