Riggins with little brother Charlie and little sister Sadie.


Friday, March 29, 2013


Up at 04:30AM with my pretty bride and we had our coffee, Then she was off to the Truck Company & the Restaurant. Rigg’s and I had out nap. Then he was up and ready for his 3/4 cup of doggie food for breakfast. He has been slowing down since he has figured out he is only getting one serving a day and now is making it last longer.

What a Friday it has turned out to be, Sunny and right now it is 59 degrees and the snow is just about gone. It was only supposed to be 57 today but since it is only 02:00PM I look to see it in the 60’s before 5PM. Tomorrow is supposed to be more of the same.

Nicky made supper for us last night and it was as good a spaghetti as Mom makes.

I think it might have went to her head because she came over before and said . “Grandpa if you roll the dough out I will make the pizza tonight”. I said sure you have already learned pizza making before.

She is my little doll, and it is so nice she likes cooking and helping her Grandma bake on Sunday mornings.

Woke up this morning with a bit of a sore throat, so I have been spraying and sucking on throat pills today. With 3 weeks to go before Donna retires I don’t want anything ruining that.

For some reason maybe with the snow and then the Spring Break week this week seems to have flown by. I just wish the next three will go that fast. We are having visitor’s at the Ranch on the 15th of April, JAY & STELLA a couple of bloggers we haven’t had the opportunity to meet yet will be stopping and driveway docking for a few days. Jay is a retired Texas lawman so I am sure we will have a couple good happy hour discussions. and maybe even talk them into the Anhueser-Busch Brewery Tour.

Then after their visit we will be heading out for our vacation. Can’t wait.

Well that’s about it for today. Hope the weather is getting better for the rest of our friend’s , especially the ones heading north from their snowbird spots.

Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…..


  1. I can almost bet the next 3 weeks will fly by. I can't believer our time has come tomorrow. It has gone by fast. We have very little snow left too and supposed to be 61 tomorrow. Spring has finally sprung ya!

  2. Take care of that throat..There is lots of Strep infection up here!
