Tuesday Thoughts.

Was up early with my bride for coffee and then she was off to the truck company.

I had received a request from my son Rick in New Jersey, who asked if I could get him a copy of a birth certificate, so bright and early I was in the truck, rush-hour traffic and all, heading to St Charles Mo. which is our county seat. I went to the County Health Dept, and I couldn’t believe  it I was in & out in about ten minutes, maybe because I had downloaded the form and filled it out last night at home. But I was really impressed, no question just pay the fee and out the door I went happy as a lark.

So Rick it’s in the mail in the morning.

Today was one of those cloudy all morning and then the sun trying to peek through but just never made it.It wasn’t cold temps in the low 50’s but just not a nice sunny day.

Rigg’ s is laying at my feet ,here in the kitchen and Sadie is in her doggie bed behind my chair. what a life, I guess the hour knap they got in my bed wasn’t enough for the strenuous day of house protection.

I know a lot of you out there are wondering, now that the fiver is back in top shape , when we will be taking it out. Well Donna got off from the 19th of April until the 30th, so we will be heading to Florida, to visit our blogger friends PAUL & HELEN who are still in Mexico with their three Labs , Coco, Jodie & Sandy. That will give them time to settle back in at home, before they have company.They live in Inverness Fla, having spent time in Pensacola, and the Mayport Jacksonville NAS area, I think Inverness is west of Orlando.

Anyway by April it will be summer there and the doggies will enjoy a lot of swimming since they have a pool. Donna & I really look forward to the visit, since we haven’t seen them since they were at the Ranch in 2010.

Well that’s the news for today, hope everyone is having a great week. be safe out there. Sam & Donna….
