Thursday Happenings.



                  GO CARDS.

We were up at 04:30AM Donna headed out as usual at 05:30AM, She headed to the truck company & then the restaurant..

The big news of the day is our hometown boys the St Louis Cardinals. Prevailed in the first game of the World Series. I know a lot of bloggers are rooting for Texas, and they are a good team. But St Louis is a come from behind underdog team, that somehow manages to get a World Series Crown every so often. I remember back in the Days of Ozzie Smith, and Vince Coleman and the others when runs were manufactured by stealing bases and just darn good hitting and fielding. Texas is a powerhouse so we will see if our underdog Cardinals can pull it off. Just so you know when they aren’t playing the Redbirds I enjoy rooting for the Cubs, Now there is an underdog if there ever was one, I can still here Ole Harry Cary yelling “Holy Cow, the Cubs win” into the radio mike.

I think the neatest thing about having a World series here in St Louis is the hundreds of fans it brings into the area and the boost for the downtown economy. It is just a contagious good time feeling and everywhere you go you can feel it in the air and see it in all the red jerseys that are wherever you look, even the old ladies at the grocery store have there Cardinal shirts on and caps too.

Nicole and Adam have their jerseys and caps, I will try to get a picture for the blog this weekend.

Here in Dardenne Prairie, Indian summer is over and Fall is definitely in the air, it was 47 for the high today even with the sun out and we had a good wind. Nicole has her coat on when she heads for the bus in the morning. I went down to bring the dumper back in short sleeves and it was a cold 47 with the wind blowing.

Didn’t go anywhere today, at this rate I’ll get several weeks out of a tank of diesel. We’ll make up for it when we go to Branson next month.

Rigg’s has been in & out many times today, he must know winter is coming and wants to take advantage of as many nice days as he can.

Not much else going on. which is good, still waiting to hear from the insurance company on the trailer, I ran the slide in. and I am going to wait on blowing out the lines unless we get freezing weather predicted. They might want to charge the water lines to see if a leak is in one of them.

Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…..


  1. I want to see Riggs in his Cardinals shirt along with Adam and Nicole.

  2. If you have a water leak in a line your water pump would cycle on and off. Just saying.. GO CARDS..

  3. I really enjoyed last night's game. What a play in the first inning by Carpenter! looking forward to tonight's game...!

  4. So nice when your home town gets that special World Series fever.

  5. WE froze here last night and it is to freeze harder tonight. They say next week will be in the 20s.....

  6. I'm happy to hear that you sometimes root for the Cubs. I've always said I won't die until they win the World Series. I could be around for a long, long time. :)

  7. Judy and Dennis feel the same way...just give 'em a pennant and they will be happy!

  8. I thought the Cards were sure to go up 2-0 last night until they blew it in the 9th - too bad!
