Thursday Happenings.

Not to much is happening here in Dardenne Prairie, Donna & I were up and she went to the truck company, and then it was time to take Nicole to school, It stayed cloudy most of the day and reached about 55 degrees this afternoon when I was going to pick up Nicole at school.

The sun only peaked out a couple places on the drive to Augusta. Now Nicole is doing home work and Grandpa is doing a short post, no new news today,will wait and see what the weather does in the next week or two before getting the fiver ready to roll on short notice.

Donna has the restaurant duty so I will have to decide to make for the rest of us, Last night Samantha cooked a hamburger, potatoes, & bacon casserole, first I had tried it and it is really good warm country fixings. So tonight is my turn at what’s for dinner, still deciding. that casserole is a tough act to follow.

Rigg’s got a new toy from Samantha when she came home from work and he is laying on the kitchen floor with it in his mouth and Sadie is doing her best to try to steal it out of his grip, It never cease’s to amaze me how Rigg’s will take the ear biting and the muzzle nipping and all the ferocious growling that Sadie does to try to intimidate him and he just eats up playing with her. I wonder sometimes when I see what she does to him to try to get his toys or sometimes her toys out of his mouth how many other dogs would put up with that especially when she grabs his ears for a bite.


Here, she finally got a hold of it and is playing tug with him, he will only pull hard enough to make her think she is winning. Then he will pull her across the kitchen.

As I have said before we have been Blessed with some really great pets in our lives and these two are carrying on the tradition. What memories they will provide the Grandkid’s.

That’s about it for today, I hope everyone has had a good day and ducked the storms down south. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna……..
