Not good news.

As a lot of you know we have been looking forward to going to New Jersey for May 2nd and my Son Tim’s wedding.we had planned to spend about a month at his ranch and then head north with a stop in Pa. and then explore New York state.

Like all good things, I learned a long time ago never get your hopes to high. Donna’s breathing condition has gotten significantly worse, there are times she can barely make it from the bedroom to the kitchen, Our trip out east had been postponed for now unless there is a big improvement in her health.

She wanted me to go without her, But I will not leave her side while she is this ill. I ask that all friends and relatives include her in their prayers and we are hoping the doctors will find a way to improve her health.

ON the 21st I will have my last checkup on my eyes, I am really happy with my restored vision, just riding in the truck now is a pleasure.


                                  Grands Meghen and Katie.

Here’s hoping Donna shows some improvement in the days ahead, Be safe out there, Sam & Donna.
