Tuesday Thoughts.

Well today is pretty much a Makeover day here at the Weeb Ranch. First up was Sadie,
                                Sadie Before…
                               Sadie After…
Boy she looks like she had lost weight in those pictures, I am sure with the 95 degree weather she is more comfortable when she goes out.
Next up the carpenters came to tear out our old screen port steps and extend the porch deck and put new steps in, they were here so early the old steps were ripped out before I could get a picture. Here’s the work in progress.
Pretty sure he will be done with them tomorrow, then we will have to stain them.
The last project for today was to get rid of the weeds that sprang up where our old burn pile used to be in the back yard. My Son’s boss Kevin came over with his brush hog and cleared it for us while Andy trimmed some trees.
A lot better and now I can get John Deere in there and try to keep ahead of it and maybe throw some seed in this fall before the snow flies.
Nicky came by to stay a few days with us, she is always a pleasure to have here same with Adam.
My contribution for the day was to make a grocery run, while Donna cleared some brush and burned it in the burn barrel.
Donna’s pile, the logs are from the Bradford Pear tree we lost in the storm while we were in Florida.
That’s about it for today, hope all is well with all our friends out in blog land. Be safe out there.. Sam & Donna………..


  1. The porch steps are going to be a big improvement over the old ones, so far they are looking great. The backyard is sure shaping up nicely too. Donna, I think you and I would make quite a team of bushwhackers, that's about all I did once the old leaves were picked up. I actually enjoyed clearing up the bush at the back of the campsites.


    1. So far I have cut down at least 50 trees and still have about that many to go in the back yard, dont even want to talk about the front
      Too bad you arent heading to Mexico from there, you and I could double team it :-)

  2. That cleared area really looks good, and it will be a snap to get your Deere in there when you need to.

  3. Now, Sam, you never told us you had such skills as a dog groomer! Do you do nails too? Emma could sure use a nail trim. ;)

  4. I agree with Kevin and Ruth, those news steps make a world of difference. You two certainly are ambitious. Maybe I need to think of all the work you are doing and that will make me tired enough to sleep sound tonight.

    1. have you noticed how poroductivity has gone up since I dont work all the time :-)

  5. Now that's what I call a productive day!!

  6. Great time working in the yard...Our weeds are getting bigger than our flowers and I am just about sick of pulling them!
