Wednesday/Thursday Happenings.

Was up sat 06:00AM with my bride for coffee, the started to work on the garage door. found the trouble with one side was the wood molding was beginning to warp and the door was dragging against it. causing it to stop. I readjusted the molding and it is working fine, the other is a bad receiver board, if I can’t find one I will have to replace the opener unit . I am doing a search now to see if someone has the out of production board in stock someplace.

Donna worked last night at the restaurant and said they were all happy she was back and enjoyed her trip.

Donna and I are slowly doing little projects here around the house, she is reclaiming her sewing room and throwing everything out that has accumulated in it over the years when she was working and didn’t have time for sewing.

Yesterday our downstairs refrigerator /freezer shot craps so we lost all of our frozen food down there, We went to a used appliance place in St Charles and picked one up for $130 dollars, they wanted$400 for a new one. This is where we store the overflow frozen stuff and soda and beer. The one that died we bought from a girl I was working with for $20 about 10 years ago when she was moving. So I guess 10 years wasn’t bad for that price.

Weather here at the Ranch has been in the 90’s and sunny. Nicky is here so we will have to head for the swimming pool soon. Sam’s feet feel so good when soaking in the pool.

That’s about it for today, Hope all is well out in blog land. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…


  1. Didn't Donna retire...or did I dream that??

  2. How many days will Donna be working at the restaurant each week. I am sure it is something for her to do so that she stays out of trouble, lol!

    Yep, I would say that the refrigerator didn't owe you anything, it's just too bad that you lost some of the food in it.


  3. Careful, don't let that big mean 'WORK MONSTER' suck you in again, chew you up, & spit you out. Work Monsters are very clever at doing that sort of thing with 'retired' people...............

  4. You'll notice from the comments the WORK word really grabbed our attention. Hopefully, Donna's only "working" part time and can have some fun getting her sewing room straightened out.

  5. I suppose I should get a part-time job to "keep me honest,' but why would I want to give the rest of the world satisfaction? ;-)

    Sorry to hear about your refrigerator/freezer, but it sounds like it all worked out (minus the spoiled food).
