Monday Meanderings.

Up at 04:30AM and had our coffee before Donna headed to the truck company, yesterday and the day before they had 6 inches of rain here in Dardenne Prairie, lots of flooded roads and just messy out, it rained all night and then about noon today the sun came out and it got up to about 85 degrees, it is going to take a couple of sunny days to dry out around here. I was going to finish the trailer with getting all the wash done, but decided because our pump runs so much when the water table is high that I would wait a day or so.

Supposed to be really nice at the end of the week around Thursday or Friday so by that time I might plan a trip out to the Lake with Adam. Nicole and Chris left for a couple weeks with their Dad so it was quiet around here today, About the only thing I got accomplished was going to the grocery store, we were out of Milk & Bread & Eggs.

My niece Dianna’s daughter Lauren competed in a Mega Rally, with her horse, so I will put a few pictures in, sorry I don’t know the horse’s name, Lauren is about 15 years old and quite an accomplished rider.

Not much going on I am relaxing here in the house and waiting for the ground to dry up.

Hope everyone is having a great week. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…


  1. Great photos of Lauren and the horse...
    We have had tons of rain here too...The weeds have officially outnumbered the veggies in the garden..

  2. Like Dennis and Donna and you lots of rain and weeds.

    Getting ready to leave Friday for Lake of the Ozark for about 5 days,going to be hot there.

  3. Great pics of Lauren!! Her horse is just beautiful!!
    I wish we could get some of that wet ground here. We have had some rain lately but it has been so dry I'm afraid it hasn't helped much.
    Hope things dry out for you soon!

  4. Great pics of the horse jumping competition!

  5. I.M. sure does enjoy yer writin' and outlook on life. Most folks would say they's sittin' round watchin' the grass grow. Not Sam, y'all says yer waitin' fer the ground to dry up, which are tellin' it exactly like it are.

  6. We got back to NJ this morning. Rained all the way from MD. That horse looks a lot like Streak - Len's horse we sold when we took to the road. He was just remarking yesterday how much he misses him.
