Riggins with little brother Charlie and little sister Sadie.

Up early and coffee with my bride Then I  napped until about 07:00AM and saw Nicole of to school.

I had to make an emergency run to Shop & Save for my 30 pack of Miller High Life light, the Emergency Low Beer warning light came on yesterday but I hit the reset button right away to silence the klaxon horn and then my son Andy volunteered to do the grocery shopping, He remembered the dog food for Rigg’s, but forgot my beer, guess you know where I am on the seniority list. So I made a quick run and still spent $49 by the time I was out of there.

I got a call from Adam’s Mom and she asked if he could spend the weekend with Grandpa. Sure was the answer, I had been hoping and waiting for the call.

So I went out and picked him up at the bus stop in Warrenton MO.

When we got home it was Friday/Pizza night at the Weeb Ranch. Both of us packed away about 4 pieces each.

Since Rigg’s gets rid of any left over crust that the kids don’t eat he is a happy lab indeed tonight.

That’s about it for tonight, I am planning on taking Adam looking at bicycles tomorrow and he needs to find what size will be best for him since he is sprouting up and out grew the one he has now.

Be safe out there and have a great weekend. Life is good. Sam & Donna…
