TGIF Friday.

Well got up this morning and had coffee with my bride, then down to the office to read blogs , I then went up and got ready for my every three month Doctors appointment, which I had a 09:00AM appointment, I always get the first one in the morning so I don't have anyone ahead of me to day I was in and out in 40 minutes. The Doc said I was good for another 3mos or 3000miles, He was especially happy with all the numbers, the ones that have to do with cholesterol, and triglycerides, and HDL, and all that doctor stuff, he said they were the best so far and I was doing well. I guess for an old guy, he gave me a flu shot and said it would be okay for Adam to come over as it looks like my cold is about done. I called Adam's Mom and told her I would pick him up after school for the weekend, this will be the last weekend home before the PA. Trip and then he won't see me until Nov. sometime.

I missed yesterdays blog post, I took some Daytime medicine and then laid down for a nap that ended up being three hours long. Boy that cold and flu stuff just knocks me out, I have never been a big pill guy and I can tell right away when I take medicine that it is working on me as I get tired and dizzy easy. But it seems to have done the job as this morning I have a little more energy and I feel all around better. Maybe I will be lucky and have licked this thing right away instead of what Al, The Bayfield Bunch had to contend with a few weeks ago. While on the subject of AL, I think we are all glad he made the decision to turn his comments back on, I for one enjoy being able to comment to someone, just to let them know I enjoy reading about them. But it's every ones choice to do what they want with their own blogs.

We are still having nice weather, with temps in the 50's at night and the 70's and sunny during the day, I could live with this year round, hopefully someday we will be doing just that, NO MORE SNOW.. Well it looks like I will have at least one more winter to go through.

Donna has another night at the restaurant tonight, so Adam & I will batch it, along with Rigg's, An all boys cast even when Adam's Dad gets home, he was doing another side job today so we should see him about the time me and Adam roll in from Warrenton MO.

I might give Adam a chance to cut a little half acre patch where it is level with John Deere, since he helped me pulling logs I will see if he can steer a straight line and maybe cut a few rows, he's not big enough for anything with a hill or and fancy work yet. But he can reach the pedals now and was really concentrating on his job last time, I will of course stay right out in the field with him just in case he has any trouble.

Not much going on it's almost time to leave for Warrenton to pick Adam up. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.


  1. Hope you're whipping that cold in the butt!

    We are heading out right now to go camping, and will raise our mugs to you around the campfire, wishing you were parked next to us!

  2. Glad to see your feeling better. It would be horrible if you were sick when you are going to help your sister. They might not let you near her, but looks like all is turning out for the best.

    Have fun with Adam. He sounds like a great kid. Stay safe.

  3. I love those 70's too! We always say - let's follow the 70's! If I can't sleep, regardless of the reason, night time flu meds knock me out too.

    Enjoy your time with Adam.

  4. I just had a Doc appointment for big "numbers" check and he was very pleased that I had dropped the cholesterol from 259 to 210..or should I say Simvistatin did that!! Glad you're on the mend. Boy Riggs and Adam will be lost without you around!

  5. Glad to hear you are feeling better. Have a great weekend with Adam!

  6. Good luck trying to see No More Snow! That was my plan as well when I hit the road, but mother nature can play tricks on you. :)

    You're a good teacher for Adam to have around. He needs a man in his life to teach him things. :)

  7. Glad to hear you're well enough to have Adam over for the weekend. He'll have fun driving your John Deere around too!

  8. Congrats on the doctor visit, Sam! Sounds like you have a nice evening and weekend planned with Adam. Makes me miss my Grands! Enjoy.

  9. Great news on your numbers!!! Also glad you are feeling better...that can be nasty stuff.
    You "boys" enjoy yourselves!!
