Riggins with little brother Charlie and little sister Sadie.


Friday, November 2, 2012


Donna and I were up about 05:00AM, we had our coffee and then just sat around.Today Donna is off from both the truck company and the restaurant. This morning is Donna’s friend Renee’s husband’s funeral, she will be spending the day with her.Her and Renee are best friends and Renee is like the little sister she never had. I didn’t go, seems like I just don’t like funerals anymore, been to way to many lately. I really feel for the three kid’s two girls 19 and 16 and a 13 year old boy. He’s just a year older than Adam. That’s way to young to be without a Dad, I see how Adam depends on his Dad and I for guidance, I will try to include him is our camping this summer if he wants to go.They only live a few blocks away and belong to our parish.

Believe it or not I am still in jammies again at noon not planning on going anywhere, but I better get dressed in case someone comes by the house with Donna, already had Samantha’s girlfriend Lisa come by, but she is family.

Sunny day here at the Ranch and 50 degree’s which is about normal. Rigg’s and Sadie have their sunny spots staked out on the floor by the back door.

Other than that a slow news day here. Oh yeah the kid’s in New Jersey both got their power back today so they are proceeding with the cleanup after the storm.

Everyone have a fine weekend. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…


  1. Glad the power is back on for the kids...and I often stay in my jammies most of the day lol (when not on the road)

  2. So sorry to here about Donna's friend, and it is a good idea to help their son out.

  3. I know what you mean about Funerals Sam,,,I don't even want to go to my own!!:-)
    We keep plugging our way towards home in AZ... Herding on West today from Tucumcafi, NM...... Should be home Sunday sometime.... Take care.

  4. I'm like you & Mike when it comes to funerals. I stopped going to funerals a very long time ago unless it was immediate family. Kelly & I have already made arrangements for.....no funerals!!
