Saturday Mumblings.

Donna was off at the truck company so we slept in until 05:30am. Donna made a big pan of brownie’s to take to the restaurant tonight, Also a small pan for the rest of us, except me who isn’t allowed Brownies anymore.

At 09:30am the phone rang and Adam’s buddies were ready to meet and play.He was out the door like a shot even thought it was 40 degree’s out side, it’s not supposed to be much warmer, but the kid’s don’t care, they can stop at one of our houses to warm up if need be. Beside’s a short lunch break at one of our places they will play until about 04:00PM, reminds me of when I was a kid , and it was out the door , no tv or video games.

The bikes got a good workout running down to the new park a block away. I can see each day how Adam is getting older and more independent with his friends and wanting to do the bigger guy stuff. That’s the worse part of kid’s growing up is losing the constant companion Grandpa used to have. but been there and done that so life goes on.

He still gets excited when I say hey as soon as it warms up a little more were heading out with the trailer, and you can take a friend.

My son Andy has been trying most of the afternoon to get some kind of a wi-fi receiver hitched up to the xbox so him and Adam will be able to play Call to duty on line.

Rigg’s was out most of the day because the kid’s were playing in the yard and he assumed the duty as official watchdog, and umpire.

Donna headed off to the restaurant about 03:30PM so now I won’t see her until morning. She says she doesn’t have to work tomorrow so she will have a full day off for a change, Maybe I can talk her into going to dinner. so I can say I have one of the prettiest Ladies in the place with me.

That’s about it for today, Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Be safe out there.  Sam & Donna..


  1. Yup, the grandkids sure grow up fast. I guess that's why we try to make memories while we can. Hope you and Donna get out to a nice dinner together.

  2. grands seem to grow up in the blink of an eye...Hope you have a super day off together tomorrow!!!

  3. Does that grand kid growing up stuff mean we are becoming ancient too????

    Know what you mean when they all have brownies and ice cream, and I get a cup of coffee with no sugar in it!!!

    Enjoy the wife's day off...... Rod

  4. Doesn't it just suck when you can no longer have brownies. Somehow that's just not fair. Nice to read that the grandkids are not just couch potatoes and are so active.

  5. That's why I'm glad we have Chris's 2 little boys..much younger than Ter's kids..At age 3 and 11 months, they still think the sun rises and sets on Grandpa....YOu and Donna make sure to have a nice dinner out!!
