Saturday Mumblings.

Wow, I am getting a late start on this today, Got the TV stand done, Michelle’s Dad Earl came over and when I went to attach the mount to the back of the set I found out the screws were no where near going to match up, so I had to think fabrication, I got a couple of 1x2’s and drilled holes to line up with the sockets for the machine screws on the back of the flat screen, after attaching the 1x2’s. I then took 3/8 in wood screws and attached the mounting plate to the 1x2’s. then it was simply a matter of securing the mount to the desk top with my cordless drill.

After that it was time for a coffee break. Had to make a run to the grocery store,and then came back and relaxed,

Made a Tex –Mex hamburger taco helper meal for supper it was a good change of pace. one of those two beer suppers to keep the body temperature down.

With all the snow the upper Midwest is getting I have  been watching the weather closely, it looks like I might get lucky and duck the snow on Wed & Thursday, I will go as far as I can Wed so I won’t have a long distance left on Thur. Plan on doing most of my packing on Tuesday and then just have an overnight bag and the laptop to load up on Wed before I leave.

I am going to try and get some good rest Monday & Tuesday to store up for the trip, I find that works for me.

That’s about it, for today, I will be seeing you all in Mo in a few Day’s and Adam I will pick you up to spend the weekend this Friday or Saturday.

Be Safe Out There. Sam & Donna.


  1. enjoy the last few days with your sister!..counting the hours till you are home again!!!

  2. Travel safe, we share your excitement on going back home!!!!

  3. Drive safe, Sam, don't push on too hard to get home faster. Today, we saw some awesome RR tracks at Tehachapi ( with tunnels ) and a long BNSF with 4 units picking up at Boron, most likely.

  4. Do I detect a little excitement about your departure there? Hope you'll soon experience similar excitement about leaving for a fulltime RV life. :)

  5. Good fabricating plan there Sam, I'll have to remember that one. You must be getting pretty excited about preparing to head home next week.

  6. Yeah, you take care of yourself to get ready for that big trip! I bet Adam is chomping at the bit to hang out with his grandpa buddy!

  8. Whohoo! Just a few more days until time to get on the road for home. Be safe out there!
