What a Great Weekend

This weekend was a great one. Mom and dad got to the house on Friday evening and of course my fridge and cupboards were a little bare and we had to grocery shopping. That night they met Sonya again. They met her years ago, but do not remember. I guess that is what happens when you are getting old. HAHA!! Had to say it mom and dad. You are grandparents after all.

Saturday was just as good. Once Sonya got off work we took mom and dad to Indiana to the casino on the river. It was funny on the way because knew it would be boat and was worried because she gets motion sick. Now she knows it is just a building on the water and you can't even tell you are on water. Sonya and I blew through $30 pretty fast so slowed down and had a few drinks. I finally go the machine I wanted that was a penny machine. I put my last $5 for gambling in and won $60 pretty fast. Mom continued to let it play and got it to $75 and we stopped. It was great night and a good ride home.

Sunday we decided to head to Nashville and see Sonya at work and go shopping at Opry Mills. Of course me and dad spent most of the time in Bass Pro. I got a tree stand and a muzzleloader for deer season this year and I cannot wait.

Mom and dad left yesterday to head to Branson for a much needed vacation. And of course they were on the bikes. They will be back through later this week and will be stopping by for another visit and I am glad.

It was great to spend time with them and to let them meet Sonya. They really seem to like her and now I have to convince Sonya that.

Life has been treating pretty darn good here lately. I am really happy with how things are going with my life. I sold my motorcycle as much as I did not want to, but I need to save the money on the insurance and pay off a few bills. I will now be selling my Ford Ranger. I have had it over 10 years and it is time to let it go. It is a great truck and hate to see it go, but I don't need it. One truck is plenty.

I hope that life is treating everyone great. You all should know that if you ever need anything, I am here. I don't care how big or how small. I am here for anyone.

Oh, I can't forget to update you on Jeremy seeing he is never on here. He had surgery to repair his shoulder last week and is doing good. Wish I was there to help him out with things seeing that he has no use of his shoulder for a long time now.

Courtney is playing soccer now and is in school. Mom and dad have went to some soccer practices and I will finally get to see on next next week and maybe even take her to a game on Saturday. She is really excited. Every time I talk to her she asks about Marley and tells me about her new Barbie bike she got. I just wish she would slow down growing. She is growing too fast.

Well, I better do some work. I hope every has a great day!!
