Donna had a Doctor’s appointment with her COPD doctor this morning,she has not been doing well, for the last couple of weeks, weakness,dizzyness, not being able to breath even with the help of oxygen. THe doctor changed some of her medicine and wants her in the hospital on the 26th. for some tests that can’t be done in the office.Naturally Andy and I worried,I ak all family and friends to remember her in their prayers.
I had my doctors appointment today also, when I got there, they told me it was for yesterday,I told the the card the girl in the office gave me said Dec23th on my refrigerator.Had to reschedule, next available day was Feb 2nd.
Nothing else going on everyone be safe, Sam & Donna…
It is a really nice sunny weekend with a temperature of 56 degrees. Donna was feeling better so for the first time in weeks she went out and met her bff Renee for a brunch, she was tired when she got back but at least she got out and enjoyed her morning.
My Son Andy got a cord of wood delivered by a friend of his, they are unloading it onto the wood rack. With the mild winter we are having it should lastuntil spring. But no matter how nice it is we always have a couple weeks of below zero weather usually after Christmas or in January some time.
Andy and buddy loading the rack.
Still more to go untl they have it all on the rack.
Andy was carrying it from the trailer in the driveway to the back of the house in his arms his buddy had a wheelbarrow. Guess who was working harder.
How many of you guys out there can relate this like I can.
THat’s about it for today, be safe out there.
Sam & Donna……….
As anyone who has visited the Weeb Ranch in the last 5 years or so has noticed. We had a retaining wall outside our garage entrance that has been leaning and getting worse as each winter goes by. We were getting afraid that it would come down, so we decided to have it removed.
Leaning wall last summer.
This morning the contractor arrived to start work on it.
AS you can see he had some heavy duty equipment and a tandem dump truck to remove the pieces. He will be back in the morning to continue the demolition and then start rebuilding a smaller wall.
You can bet all this noise kept the mutso’s occupied with barking and being excited.
After having the bathrooms done and painted and now this maybe we can start saving for another trip to someplace warm. Although as you can imagine this job is costing us a fortune.
That’s the news for today, be safe out there, Sam & Donna…….
Today marks the 74th anniversary of the attack on the Naval base in Pearl Harbor by the Imperial Japanese Navy.Thousands of lives were lost. But it awakened the sleeping giant of America and we came back to achieve victory in WW2.
Take a minute to reflect on this and the danger our country faces today.
It is a cold day here at the Weeb Ranch, Donna and I aren’t planning on going out anywhere, But the mutso’s are in and out they don’t seem to mind a little cold, except for Sadie, she goes out does her thing, then runs for the back door to come in, Charlie would play outside all day if you let him.
Were still waiting for Donna’s flat screen TV to be delivered. It will replace the set in our bedroom that is about 25 years old. Last time we ordered a TV from Wal-Mart it was delivered in 3 days. This time it was due here on Dec 4th but never arrived, Wal-Mart is tracing it now all they could say is it doesn’t show any delivery, No kidding.
That’s the news for today, everyone be safe, Sam & Donna………..
After two weeks, I finally got my laptop back from the repair shop today, The keyboard needed to be replaced again. you just don’t realize how much you miss a computer until it is gone, no blogs, no Facebook, no emails. Donna has her own laptop but it is setup with her accounts, so I just did without most of the time and waited. feels good to have my old friend back, especially since I can read my digital train books again.
Riggs is moping too.

The weather is starting to act Decemberish, it’s in the 40’s right now and cloudy, don’t look forward to winter.
Hope all is well with all our friends out there. Be safe .Sam & Donna…..
