Wednesday Musings.

Up early with my bride and we had coffee, she said she thought she was feeling well enough to go to the truck company ,but she was taking off the restaurant tonight, she felt like she needed a little more rest before doing a double shift.

It was a beautiful sunny day but we hid high winds, the temp had a high of 67, but the wind made it seem much cooler.

We had a real bad storm com through last night, with tornadoes touching down about 15 miles from us, no damage here. Branson was supposed to have been hit pretty hard.

Nicole got off school around 12noon today for conferences.

About 01:00PM the back door screen door blew open and slammed shut with the wind and broke the glass, which meant getting the dogs put away while Nicole and I cleaned up all the broken glass from the kitchen floor, I was o proud of her while I was sweeping an putting the bigger pieces in a box, Nicole got Grandma’s vacuum and followed getting the real small pieces up so the pups would cut their paws. We went over it about three times and it looks like we got it all cleaned up.

Then we went to the glass company and they said they could put a piece of glass in the frame in about an hour.

So while they were doing that Grandpa & Nicole went and got a couple of shakes as a reward for working so hard.

When we got back home I reinstalled the frame in the door and now we are battened back down.

Now were just waiting for Grandma to get home from the  truck company, I hope she is feeling better like she says.

That’s about it for today, Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…..


  1. Glad you only had the one little issue with the glass, and not anything major! Sure hope Donna is feeling better. Wish she could just stay home for a few more days, but know that's not likely. You stay safe, Sam and thanks for sharing.

  2. Donna sent an email thanking everyone for thinking about her....She is a one of a kind woman, Sam...Yep, she sure is!

  3. Glad the tornadoes past you by with no major damage. Hope Donna continues to be on the mend.

  4. I read about those tornadoes. Very scary. Glad they passed you by. Hope Donna feels 100% soon.

  5. I was checking closely as to where those tornadoes were in relationship to you guys. So glad you're okay. Cleaning up glass can really be a chore. Glad you had such good help with that one. Hope Donna is doing much better.

  6. Glad the tornado didn't come any closer but sounds like you still got some hefty wind. Hope Donna continues to mend. Hugs to you both.

  7. Like everyone else, glad to hear the tornadoes missed you guys. Hope Donna is feeling a bit better today.
