Saturday Notes.

A sunny nice day here in Dardenne Prairie, I got an e-mail from Danny & Shula Oren I just have to share with all our friends and family, As you may not know Danny & Shula visited with us here at the Weeb Ranch last month. Truly wonderful people from Israel. We have been worried how the events in their homeland would effect there family. Here is the e-mail they sent us.
No country would stand still while missiles are pointed at the civilians .
One side can not play "dirty  " and expect the other side to play "fair" , we try NOT to hit civilians,we send flyers ,make phone calls and send SMS to civilians on the other side to move away and stop being a human shield for the terrorists, I do not know of any army to do this-but the world prefers not to see or hear.
Thank you to all my friends sending me their concerns- our family is OK,our grand kids were sent home from summer camps as there is not enough bomb shelters for everyone,they are a bit shocked but it will pass.
Lets pray that the Muslims will understand that LIFE is more important than DEATH.
Danny & Shula
We certainly hope that peace will come soon for these brave people.
Having seen the effects of war as a young man, I thank God that my family is safe here in Dardenne Prairie and that we still have young people willing to come to the defense of this great nation.
On another note our Grandaughter Nicky is here for the weekend,
Rigg’s is helping Nicky get her baby Rylie down for a nap.
Nick showing off her new glasses, what a cutie patootie.
Did you ever notice that kid’s just sprout up in between visits, Nicky looks like she put on about 4 inches n the last month.
Here’s the New Jersey Grand's Katie and Meghen with
Dude and Angel.
Now I will probably go out with John Deere and cut some grass later.Donna will be going to the restaurant for the evening watch tonight.
Nicky and Andy & Samantha took the dogs to the Doggie Park yesterday, it looks like they all had a great time, but no pictures.
Here’s one for Sam, my old Squadron doing what they do best.
That’s about it for today, Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…..


  1. Thanks for the info from Danny and Shula. We've had some interesting e-mails about the situation over there and I have learned so much from them. I cannot believe how much your grandkids have grown. They aren't little anymore. And getting cuter and prettier all the time.

  2. It is so sad to see all this fighting. It never really seems to solve anything. I wish everyone could just treat everyone the way they would want to be treated, then the world would be such a better place for everyone.

    Wow, I can't believe how much Nicky has grown since we saw her last. Love her new glasses, they look great on her.


  3. Sam and Donna..this is such a great blog in so many ways..Thanks for sharing first hand what is going on in Israel...We over hear should count our blessings...and thanks for the uplifting pics of your family...Puts it all in perspective!
