Riggins with little brother Charlie and little sister Sadie.


Friday, December 23, 2011


Up early with my bride, she had to work at the truck company until 11:00AM and then they let out for the holidays, so she called and said she was going to do some shopping and then go into the restaurant.

Adam called his Mom and she said he could spend another night. He is happy as it is a sunny day and he can play with his buddies here while when he is home he doesn’t have any buddies close. I think he like spending the nights with Grandpa too.

It is counting down now for the Christmas Weekend, Donna will work some hours at the restaurant tomorrow and then be completely off for Christmas Day and Monday, as I said we have great meals planned and days of relaxation, With the kid’s going to Oklahoma we are looking forward to just being here alone with Rigg’s, just like when we hit the road. Sadie is going with the kid’s to Oklahoma.

We are so glad to see everyone in Blogland seems to be well and enjoying their holidays.

Don’t forget party at home, don’t want to see this in the mirror.


I remember when I was on the PD Christmas Eve Day was always busy with accidents and DWI’s, most of the accidents were alcohol related. As you all know I partake in a cold High Life every now and then but always in my home or campsite, and never when I am driving. Thankfully Donna has always been a teetotaler and is our designated driver, and piano mover.

Everyone have a great Holiday weekend and PLEASE like the old Sarge says, Be safe out there.  Sam & Donna.


  1. Very good advice, Chief Weibel...I don't want to have to "assume the position"..:-0

  2. Merry Christmas to you and Donna. Kim and I will think of you this holiday weekend. And as always may you see only high greens.

  3. It sounds like you are set up for a peaceful and stress-free Christmas. May it be a very happy one for you, Donna, and Riggs.

  4. Piano mover? Sam, I didn't know you were a musician! :)

  5. With everyone gone, perhaps Donna will chase you around with the pancake flipper????

  6. You and Donna have a very great Christmas weekend. This is the first time I've seen Ralphie's picture. He is a real cutie! Who knows, maybe Riggs will take the notion to write us a letter over the holidays! (smiles) You stay safe too!

  7. Merry Christmas to you both!..and the furkids too!!..have a great holiday season!!!

  8. One night on Christmas eve I stopped Santa Claus,,he was driving a pickup pulling a trailer loaded with his reindeer,,,,sure surprised me when he stepped out in full santa Claus suit,,, He said he was on his way to a children's home to give out toys,,,and was Late!!!
    he really deserved a ticket,,,,,he was going way to fast. But my conseience told me I couldn't do it, not on Christmas eve! Plus if my kids ever found out I did that, they would be mad! So, I told him to get on down the road....but be CAREFUL..
    You guys have a Merry Christmas!!!!!
