Thursday Happenings.

Here it is Thursday already, seems like another week rushing by. Yesterday it never made it above 35, Today we are on our way to the mid 60’s. Much better, It’s also sunny with just a little breeze.

Donna has the night shift at the restaurant tonight. Rigg’s and have have the house watch detail.

Donna said he was snoring so loud he woke himself up,what a guy.

Oh here’s a couple of Thursday Throwbacks.

Dona&the Mach 1-1977

                   Donna & the Mach 1 –1977.


Sam’s Dad, Bing Weibel, at work at Gulf Oil in about 1950, The truck is a 46 Autocar.

Dad said it was a bear to steer but it didn’t slosh around like some other tankers did. This what they used before trailers to deliver gas to the filling stations,the gas came in train tank cars that were emptied into the tanks in the back of the picture by grade, then it was put in the trucks for delivery.

Not much going on here at the ranch, we are just doing computer stuff and relaxing. Rigg’s and Sadie are napping, I can almost see a train movie in my future later today.

That’s about it for today, hope all is going well with our friends that are traveling. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna……..


  1. Our weather is fickle here..warm one day, front comes in, cold the next...just like Illinois...grrrr.

  2. I saw Donna and her hot car on Face Book - what a gal! Wow, that truck picture is almost as old as I am - OLD!!

  3. Great picture of Donna. I don't exactly remember the tanker, but I was certainly around in 1950!
