Monday Meanderings,

Was up at 04:30AM with my bride for coffee, then Rigg’s and I had our morning nap when Donna left. You guys are going to think I O’D’d on pizza friday. Honestly  the weekend just flew by. Between the Grandkids being here and then Sunday we were invited to a Birthday bash at the Restaurant for the owner, Jerry’s wife Laura, so the time flew and no blog was posted.

The highlight of the weekend was of course the party and we all had a great time. The crew at the restaurant are all close like family and that is what the party was like a big family get together. did manage to get a couple pictures.

The food was great, but you would expect that at J’J”s since they do have a reputation for great food, the drinks were good, I usually don’t drink much dark beer, but they had Amber Bock on tap so a had a couple of mugs of that. Wow the mugs were those big ones like you get at that Australian Steak House. Can’t think of the name right now. See what those big mugs do.

Today I went and got the inspection finished on Donna’s car after the windshield was replaced  I had to take the car back to have the new sticker put on and the paperwork picked. Then it was off to Motor Vehicles, and I only has two in front of me, so it was about a ten minute wait and then I got my new stickers for the truck, Donna’s car, and the fiver. My truck I can only get one year stickers because of the weight class, but Donna’s SUV I get a two year sticker, and the Fiver I can get a three year sticker. So next time I will only have the one.

That’s about it for today another sunny day here in Dardenne Prairie and the temperature is 57, hope everyone is having a great week. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…..
