Sunday Notes.

Another beautiful sunny and mild weekend, it was in the middle 60’s , just great November weather. Got great news from New Jersey.
My Youngest Granddaughter Meghen cleaned up in ribbons at the last horse competition of the season. Earlier today.Meghen competed on both of her Dad's horse's, On Angel she got Grand Champion, and on Dude she got Reserve Champion, for a total of ten ribbons.She says now she can't wait for the Christmas Banquet and Awards ceremony.

Wow what a competitor, hope she does as well next year, we are all so proud of her and her sister Katie.
Charlie and Rigg’s resting after playing and wresting around in the kitchen for an hour. Talk about bulls in a china shop.
Not much doing around the house this weekend. Donna was feeling well enough to make trip to the Drug Store and Market yesterday, we have a small Italian Meat Market a couple of blocks away, that has absolutely the best meat around, even their hamburger meat tastes great. Donna is making a pot roast for supper and even the three dogs are sitting with their noses pointed at the cooks island. The Weibel’s will eat good tonight.
Not much else gong on around here, the Kid’s are out somewhere. so Donna and I are dog sitting with Charlie and Sadie. Everyone be safe out there. Sam & Donna……

Veterans Day

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of 1911. An armistice was called ending World War 1. IN 1954 it was changed to Veterans Day to  commemorate all who served their country in the armed forces.

As most of you know Sam served from 1966-1970 during the Viet Nam conflict in the US Navy as a member of a flight crew in Helicopter Combat Support Squadron 2, the world famous Fleet Angels.AS we would tell anyone, “Once an Angel, Always an Angel”.I will also tell anyone especially when  am Thanked for my service, That is was the most fun a young man could have. So lets take a minute and say Thanks to a veteran today on their special day.To all my fellow blogger veterans, Have a great day.

Another nice mild Fall day, here in Dardenne Prairie, sunny and in the middle 60’s. The dogs are going in and out and loving the warm and sunny day outside.

Other than that not much shaking around the Ranch. Be safe out there, Sam & Donna…….

Donna& I are still alive.

Boy I can’t believe I let the blog set for so long, maybe it’s the great Fall weather, we have only had a couple of rain days and the rest have been sunny and mild. Bobby, the young man who is doing the repairs and carpentry work here at the ranch started in the Kitchen Bathroom, we had a window that came apart and needed replacement, since it was an odd size it had to be ordered special made. that took three weeks he got it in yesterday and now the paintwork and wood staining needs to be done. Here is a before and after view.





Tough to get a decent picture when your shooting into the sun, Maybe I could get a few tips  from Bayfield Al.  Both days the sun was full strength directly through the window.Rigg’s is being his lay next to me on ,my shoes self.

Just another lazy day for him at the Weeb Ranch. Donna made a great pancake breakfast for us this morning, I may have to have a nap after that, Some time this week I will have to drain the water lines on Chappy and blow them out with air, then I put a gallon of pink antifreeze in each tank and some in each “P’ trap, that will winterize her before out next trip. We still haven’t figured out if we will make a winter trip south, Donna is fighting her breathing problem, and I am having occasional balance problems which I think is being caused by the amount medication I am taking for my feet.

Not much else going on here, we enjoy reading about all our friends travels,although we don’t comment much, we are out here and a part of your travel and winter excitement.
