Monday Meanderings.

Up at 04:30AM with my bride for coffee, Then she was off to the truck company.
Before I post this and forget it for the third day, I noticed a couple day ago I had two new followers and then forgot to post it. so here we go BOB He has a blog listed and welcome aboard BOB . The next is DIANE she also has a blog so check them out, and I hope both Bob & Diane enjoy following the bunch here at the Weeb Ranch on our journey to full timing and whatever misadventures we have on the way. I’m sure Rigg’s and Sadie will provide us with material also.
After Donna left for work Reveille was held at 07:00hours for Nicole since this was her first day of school and she had to be at the end of the driveway at 08:14AM to catch the bus. She just had enough time for a shower and a quick breakfast, before we walked her down to wait for the bus , she asked if she could ride her new bike to the end of the driveway and I said sure I’ll walk it back for you, she loves her new bike.
               First day on bus number 75.
Yesterday Donna & Nicole started the birthday cake, I said it would have a picture of a butterfly on it, BURPP!!! Wrong. It is a butterfly, Donna made a pattern in the shape of a butterfly and they put the base coat of white icing on last night, Tonight they will mix up a big batch and color some of it different colors and do the final coat of icing. I will post a picture when it is finished.
Nicole helping Grandma with the white icing.
Rigg’s had to have his teeth brushed and Donna gets the job of doing it ,he hasn’t mastered using his paws to hold the brush yet.
         My what big white teeth you have Rigg’s.
Rigg’s is really easy to brush and he likes the taste of the toothpaste so the job is not a chore.
Donna said since her and Nicole would be cake decorating when she got home that I was to make something quick and easy and without a big mess for supper tonight. I guess it will be a Bishketti night for us that’s about as quick and easy as it gets and only two pots to wash and rinse the dishes and put em in the dishwasher.
Not much else going on in Dardenne Prairie,  hope everyone is having a good week. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…


  1. Happy Birthday to Nicole...Can't wait to see the cake..Didn't get to get a photo of Jr. in the shirt and hat you sent...He was dressed for the parade and a nervous wreck, but we are gonna get that photo next time we go up...He said thanks for the crisp salute, and "job well done". They said to tell you that you will get a thank you ...they love the gifts and he does wear them!!

  2. Anxious to head how Nicole made out on the first day of school.

    You just need more patience in teaching Riggs to hold that brush - or have Sadie hold it for him?

  3. Nicole looks so cute heading off to school. Looking forward to seeing that cake. I bet it's really going to be cute.

  4. Judy that was my question...because when I think of biscotti I picture something like a hard cookie about 1/2" wide and 6 to 8" long sometimes dipped in chocolate and usually served with coffee and then you dip the biscotti in the coffee to make it soft enough to eat.

  5. smile for the camera Riggs!!!..nice pearly whites you have there!!

  6. First day of school is always exciting for the kids, hope they all have a great year.

    Bishketti is always quick and good favorite. I know my grandkids love it.

  7. Hi, its Donna...Sam meant bsgetti.
    kid talk for Spaghetti....chronologically he is 60+, mentally well, I just left that to your imagination

  8. Your Grandaughter sure does look happy with her beautiful new Bike...

    I like Bishketti too, but my Mom says I can't have any!! Shucks!!
