Donna and I were up early for coffee, the forecast said chance of rain, but the sun came out and it’s been a nice sunny day, a little warm so the A/C was started and the house closed up, Donna & I and the three kids went and and cut a bunch of small growth away from the one corner of the rear of the house, Donna used her new electric chain saw, the kid’s would drag the small limbs to the burn pile, unless they were too heavy the Grandpa got John Deere out and the two boys Adam & Chris took turn dragging them with the tractor. All three of these kids worked hard, Donna & I were so proud of them no griping and they each did their share. They will get a nice allowance for the week to put away for whatever they are saving for, each of them has a stash of allowance money for something special they want. Adam spent a little of his last Friday at Wal Mart on a toy he has been wanting. You could tell it took some soul searching at the store when it came time to part with his cash.
Our company Len & Phyllis will be back from new Jersey & Maryland tomorrow I’ll bet Lucky will be glad to see them, you can tell he is lonesome and doesn’t like being alone.Donna played with him today and told him one more day.
I told Donna when I take Adam home to Warrenton later today she is going with me and just the two of us are going to stop someplace and have a nice dinner and maybe a drink to celebrate our Anniversary that occurred three days ago. We always celebrate things on the Sunday before or after an event as it is the only day of the week Donna is off work. Boy I’ll be glad when that is over.
My twin brother Bill after not talking to me for a year and a half, since the death of our younger brother, has started to talk again. Last week when we took Len & Phyllis to the Railroad club, he was there, and low and behold he wanted to bury the hatchet, I forgive as easily as the next guy and said sure, I then offered to sell him all my trains for a ridiculously low price of $300. He made a counter off of $400 so I made the deal. Does that sound like reverse Mexican horse trading. He said he would get me a check. I am thinking of using the money on a generator, and a new bicycle for Nicole, she is outgrowing hers and her Mom and my son are both still out of work, when we were at Wal Mart her eyes lit up when she saw this pretty girls bike, ( a pink one ) with a carry bag on it and a neat paint job, I asked her when her birthday was and she said August. I told her you never know what happens around birthday times at the Weeb Ranch. Does Grandpa see an early birthday present in Nicole’s future this year.
Well that’s about it for today, Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.
