Sunday Notes.

Woke up to discover we had an ice storm last night, and all the cars, tree’s, birdhouses etc. are covered in ice. The high today is supposed to be 37 so maybe the ice will melt, but the forecast is calling for flurries and snow showers.

Donna was asked to come in to the restaurant today, so she will be heading out at 11AM. Hope the ice on the streets is melted by then.

The only place I will be going is to take the dumper down to the end of the driveway. I will wait till late afternoon to do that.


Sadie has pretty much taken over Rigg’s new bed.


                 Rigg’s wanted to take a selfie.

The kitchen side of our fireplace insert, the great room side is identical and there is a fan blower for each room. It keeps it nice and toasty warm in both rooms, if you put the thermostat on fan only,the cold air return is in the kitchen so it circulates warm air to the other rooms and the electric furnace doesn’t kick on, Saves you big bucks as long as you have a wood supply, In a normal winter I burn almost 2 cords of wood.

Nor much going on here at the ranch. Dardenne Praire pretty much shuts down until all the church services are over. Like most small towns.

Hope all is well with all our friends, be safe out there. Sam & Donna…..


  1. enjoy your sunday! stay warm inside!!

  2. The picture of Sadie on the bed just cracked me up. Riggs is such a gentle giant.

  3. It's funny how even if dogs have their own bed they will want to switch and lie in the other's bed. My son had a very old English bulldog who suffered from arthritis, and would take all the doggie beds and stack them and then plop down in the middle. It was funny to watch him set it all up.

  4. Sadie looks so cute and Rigg's is such a nice brother. Merry Christmas to you, Sam and Donna and family.

  5. Our little electric fireplace in the Hiker is worth it's weight in gold...keeps us warm and adds atmosphere!
