Wednesday Musings.

Was up with my bride at 04:30AM and then Rigg’s and I got another hours nap.

Went to Walgreens to pick up some pills and wouldn’t you know it they had all their summer stuff on clearance, Nicole has been wanting a big style snorkel mask  like the one I use, I paid $19.99 for it at Wal Mart at the beginning of summer, There on the shelf with only two left was the exact mask, with shatterproof glass and a hard frame marked down to $8.99. What is the value of the smile on a little girls face when you say look in the bag there’s a surprise in it for you.

I took the kid’s swimming again today, as it was another 100 plus day. Nicky wore her new mask almost the entire afternoon. Now if I can just get the diving lessons to take hold, she wants to learn how to dive from the wall head first.

When we got home from the pool it was106 degrees on the the blog weather bug.

Tomorrow between 06:30AM and 07:30AM I have to drop my bestus pal Rigg’s off at the Vets for his surgery. Won’t relax until I get the call to come and pick him up.

Not much else to report. Hope all is well with everyone out there in blogland, Tomorrow it is supposed to be a little cooler, only 96, bet that will feel like a fall day.

Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…


  1. Sure do love it when we find those bargains. We'll be thinking about Riggs tomorrow so be sure to post and let us know.

  2. "What is the value of the smile on a little girls face when you say look in the bag there’s a surprise in it for you." How right you are Sam. It's priceless. Please keep us updated on Riggs.

  3. I want to see a photo of you in your mask, Sam...Give Riggs a big wet dog lips kiss and make sure he gets one of those frozen doggie treats during his home recover! I think they use to be called Frosty Paws..

  4. Hugs to Riggs, Sam. It's always so tough on Mom and Dad when our canine friends have to go into the vet and stay for awhile. We'll be looking forward to hearing how you're all doing.

  5. Hope Riggs does OK... Man, that heat is bad... When you retire you need to come up here in the black hills of South Dakota and spend some time. You would really enjoy it here.... Stay cool my friend!


    (don't know what that all said, but it was dictated to me from Ducky and Duke... all I do is type what they say to Riggs)
