Thursday Happenings.

Up early as usual here at the Weeb Ranch, Donna headed out to the truck company and then the restaurant.

Then about 7:30AM the truck arrived with the shingles and supplies for reroofing our home. That’s what I like to see, a company that gets an early start. They drove around back and extend the conveyor thing and then in about 30 minutes had all the squares of shingles and tarpaper and nails up on the roof ready for the job to begin.

I am still waiting for the dumpster trailer to be delivered but the guys aren’t scheduled to do the job until Saturday. My son & one of his buddies that owns a roofing company are doing it over the weekend. You won’t se me up there unless it to deliver a soft drink or water to one of them and then I will just hand it from the ladder.


             Ready to start the roof replacement.

Adam had a great day off from school and spent the day playing outside again all day with his buddies that live behind us. The schools are off because of teachers conferences this week.

Well we’ll see if the Cards stay in the Series tonight a must win if they lose they are out.

They will play tonight as no rain is in the forecast but it is a cooler day than last week.

That’s about it from Dardenne Prairie for today, Hope everyone is having a great week. And be safe out there.Sam & Donna….


  1. Believe it or not, I helped McGuyver strip the shingles off our kitchen roof..back when I could actually climb a ladder. Roofing is NOT a fun job. Den would only let me tear off the old ones, I had no part in putting on the new ones...he did that..It sure is great when it's all done, though...

  2. Making progress. Getting stuff done. You wouldn't find me anywhere near that ladder. Hope Nicole is feeling better today.

  3. Hope it doesn't rain this weekend so the job gets done!

  4. Looks like it is going to be a BUSY weekend at the Weeb Ranch!

  7. That new roof will look good! Its mighty hard work puttin one on tho.... best for young guys!

  8. Glad to see you are finally getting your roof done, that will be another thing off your list. Hope you have good weather this weekend for it.

    Wow, what a game last night. Sure looking forward to tonight's game. Talk about being on the edge of your seat!

  9. That game last night was a miracle win for the Cards! Maybe they are a team of destiny!

    Nothing like getting a new roof on the house to make you feel safe from rain and storms.
