Yesterday was a busy day at home, and I got quite a bit accomplished. The first order of business was to deal with a backlog of emails that piled up while I was busy getting registered at the Veterans Administration medical clinic in Daytona Beach on Tuesday. And as always, the first thing I did […]

A few weeks ago Miss Terry received her Medicare Enrollment Notice because she will turn 65 in June, and yesterday I received mine because my 65th birthday is in October. Yep, it’s almost official. We are about to become old farts! How in the heck did we get that old in such a short time? […]

With my new book The Gecko In The Corner published and selling well, I decided I deserved a day off yesterday. So I celebrated by going fishing. What’s wrong with this picture? While Miss Terry and I were getting the boat ready to go, our friend Jim decided to help out by putting the ball […]

Ever since I started doing seminars at RV rallies, one thing that I have preached over and over is that both partners in an RV must know how to hookup and drive the rig, even if only one of them is the primary driver. As I always say, you don’t have to know how to […]

If you live close to the ocean, rust is a fact of life. And you don’t have to get something wet for it to be susceptible. It’s amazing how much damage the salt air can do to metal if you don’t keep up with maintenance. One of the big selling points when we bought our […]

I loved history even back when I was a young boy in school, and I was always asking questions. So many questions that I think I frustrated my teachers sometimes. I remember once when I asked two or three questions about whatever the lesson was that day, my teacher told me that I had a […]

I got an email yesterday from a blog reader asking me if I had read an article on the RVtravel.com website saying that due to the dramatic increase in the number of RVers on the road these days, the spontaneous road trip is pretty much a thing of the past. The article showed pictures used […]

I worked late on Tuesday night, trying to get as much done in my new book as I could. Of course, when I work that late I can’t just flip a switch and turn it off and fall asleep. It takes a while for my mind to unwind and relax. So it was sometime after […]

I can always trust my blog readers to set me straight when I make a mistake. Such was the case in yesterday’s blog, when I showed a picture of a Morris Minor pickup truck that I said someone had made from a car. Wayne Shunamon posted a comment saying that Morris Minor did indeed build […]
