Monday Meanderings.


Was up at 04:30AM and had coffee and a blueberry muffin with my pretty bride.Then she was off to the truck company.

Rigg’s and I went into my room and set condition Zebra for a good nap.

Then I got up and read some blogs and one thing that struck me was a lot of people are heading back north from all those warm places they spent the winter, most of them live farther north than us here at the Ranch and it is still a couple weeks from a season break where we will start getting milder weather. The lows at night are still in the 20’s. I’m afraid if I lived in Canada or northern Wisconsin or the Northeast like New York, I would stay below the Mason-Dixon line for another month. Just a thought.

Today we had a cloudy drizzly morning with a temp in the upper 30’s, after about 02:00PM the sun broke out but the wind picked up to 20-25mph so it sill seems pretty cold. The things are looking a little greener with all the rain we’ve had, but like I said around the first of April this area really explodes with spring colors and flowers.

Rigg’s is outside running with his nose up enjoying the wind, must be like being in a car without the car.

Other than that it is a slow day at the Ranch ,me and the truck have stayed in, don’t spend any money that way too.

Hope everyone is having a good day and having safe travel days. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…


  1. I'm sure anxious for those spring colors and flowers. We are getting a few blooms already but like you, most happen in April.

  2. We are definitely not heading north until May. I know the Canadians have to get back but I don't understand the rush for the Americans. The desert should be beautiful this spring. Probably next month.

  3. This has been one of the nastiest March's on record...and it doesn't look good for the next 2 weeks...Easter eggs in the snow???

  4. Loyce doesn't care about the weather.... She is so lonesome for her grandkids she is threatening to leave today.... I keep telling her that we can't take the RV back to freezing temps without winterizing the water systems, so she said she would drive the car back and I could be along when I get there...... So for her it doesn't have a thing to do with the weather.........
