Monday Meanderings.

Was up at 04:30AM and had coffee with my pretty bride, then she was off to the Truck Company. Rigg’s and I were off for our nap.


                        C’mon Dad it’s nap time. Rigg's03-11-12b

                                Down for the count,

Don’t know what happened yesterday , Donna worked the day shift at the restaurant, and I just watched movies, next thing I know the day is over and no blog was posted.

Today after our nap I started with good intentions to do my duty and help around here. I took a load of wash down and put it in the washer, put some detergent liquid in the drawer, and hit the start button, next thing I know water is pouring out of the detergent drawer and all over the floor in the utility room and not a drop is going into the washer drum. I took the clothes out, and when my Son got up he looked at it and said , time for the repair man. So we are waiting now for the repair guy to get here.

I’m afraid to start any other projects, better get this one fixed first.

Rigg’s is just sitting here giving me the “Boy are you in trouble look”.

It a cold and cloudy day here at the ranch today, plus the wind has kicked up again, no rain though, but the high is only going to be 40 and with the wind it will seem darn cold if you go out, Don’t think I will.

That’s about it for today, we’ll let you know what was wrong with the washer in the next exciting installment.

Be safe out there. Sam & Donna……


  1. You need McGyver...He has reserected our washer and dryer a gazillion times...

  2. Definitely not a good thing when water is running all over the floor and not in the washer. Do you think the excuse of "not doing anything because I always break it" will work with Donna? Riggs looks so comfy.

    1. lets see...34 years ago he broke a lamp, cracked the case on the turntable, and fell off the step stool 'helping' me paint..havent let him pick up a paint brush since then. :-)

  3. "I’m afraid to start any other projects, better get this one fixed first."

    Hope that excuse works for you with Donna! ;)

    1. No it really doesnt work, I know its code for
      "great dont have to do any more today!" But with his hearing deficit no use in saying anything he just turns a little and pretends he didnt hear me. :-)

  4. I have a McGyvver so just leave all the worrying to him. Makes me spoilt and lazy but who's complaining.

    Thought I'd let you know we are heading out to Hawaii in a couple of days. We arrive in Honolulu Thursday morning to be exact. I've set up a separate Blog called Hawaii 2013 which you can find here http://matarangigirl.blogspot.co.nz/ should you want to follow this New Zealand couple abroad. Most of our time in Hawaii will be on Big Island including a few days on a coffee plantation.


  5. Looks like Riggs is in complete control of the remote, did he get to pick the movie out today? Good luck with the washer....or did you break it on purpose??? Not telling are you? :))

  6. Oh boy are you in trooubbbllleee!~ Riggs knows it's time to head for the hills. That's what you get for trying to help!
