Tuesday Thoughts.

Up at 06:00AM and had coffee with my bride, then took a nap with Rigg’s.
One of the things I don’t think I mentioned about Donna’s condition was when the cardiologist talked with us after the procedure, he assured us all the blockages were open and her heart looked in good shape. He did say he thought part of her breathing problem could be related to a fast heart rate so he proscribed medicine to get that under control. Well after 3 full days and today she says she is really feeling better and able to breath easier. All we can do is hope that this will be the way to go.
Today is Tuesday and the big deal of the day is getting the dumper down so it is picked up and emptied in the morning, Wednesday is trash pickup day here at the ranch.
Just realized that after her procedure, Donna is down to 115lbs, that means she weighs 10 pounds more than Rigg’s, need to fatten her up a little bit.
Sitting here at the table in my Inverness Fla. tee shirt, just thinking of warm swimming weather, today it is what is known around here as a mix of sun and clouds with a high of 47 expected. The next couple days the highs are only to be in the low 30’s, so a colder front is coming.
Just keep the snow away . Here we are getting to the middle of Feb. two  months until vacation. All I can do is keep the faith that time will pass, I still have to look for a set of trailer tires before we leave. That should be it anything needed before a long trip except maybe a wash.
Rigg’s is enjoying having his Mom home and splits his time up between us. boy will he be disappointed when she goes back to work during the day tomorrow. She says she is feeling strong enough and will stay in her desk and not lift anything. We will see how it goes, I wanted her to have the whole week off, but you know Donna when she gets something in her head.
Not much going on here at the ranch, so I will leave you all with good thoughts, Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…….


  1. Get her a gift card to Dairy Queen, and make her lots of your Italian food!!!

  2. Pizza would be good for her. She definitely could use a few more pounds. Fingers crossed that the fast heart beat fix does help her breathing.

  3. Thanks for the reminder, Sam. I rolled my 2 cans today. Garbage pick up tomorrow here too. Weather here sounds a lot like what you have there right now. At least we don't have any tornadoes, eh?

  4. So glad that Donna is home and is feeling great. We wish that she could take the whole week off as well. Please don't work too hard Donna, just take it easy. Can't wait to see you both off on a vacation again.

  5. Great to hear how well Donna has responded. Take care the both of you.
