When we bought our house, one of the goals we set for ourselves was to replace the carpeting in the living room, hallway, master bedroom, guest bedroom, and the third bedroom, which serves as Terry’s sewing room. Back in the day it was nice carpeting, but years of kids, grandkids, dogs, and use had left […]

In a small park on Savannah’s riverfront stands a bronze statue called The Waving Girl, a tribute to one of America’s favorite goodwill ambassadors, though many outside of Georgia have never heard of her. Florence Martus was born on Cockspur Island on August 7, 1869, the daughter of a German immigrant who was a sergeant […]

Do you have an extra key stashed somewhere outside of your RV, maybe one of those magnetic Hide-A-Key gizmos, so you can get in if you are ever locked out? I know a lot of RVers who do, and we had one for our motorhome, too. Of course, it can be a problem if you […]

Note: This is an updated repeat of a blog post from 2011. I once spent a recent afternoon hanging out with ugly chicks. Really ugly chicks! Now, before you start calling me an insensitive jerk, and telling me that beauty is only skin deep, or asking if I have looked in a mirror lately, I […]

It was inevitable that the Spanish, French, and British would fight for hundreds of years over control of the New World, and the place we now know as Florida was one of the most hotly contested. Whoever controlled Florida controlled the rich shipping lanes coming from the Spanish Caribbean, and those world powers bathed the […]

I would venture to say that at least half of all fulltime and seasonal RVers we know travel with at least one pet, and sometimes more. And most of those pets are dogs and cats, though we have seen people with other pets that are a little more exotic. These have included somebody who traveled […]

Making Some Headway

I think we’re making some headway with my back problems but it seems like it’s two steps forward and one step back. After going back to the chiropractor on Tuesday and getting an adjustment, I was still experiencing some tenderness but nothing compared to the pain I had been dealing with for five days. In […]

Honoring The Pioneers

It’s no secret that we are fans of museums, and some of the best museums that we have ever found have been in small towns. While on a brief stopover in Douglas, Wyoming we discovered one of the best historical museums to be found anywhere. The Wyoming Pioneer Museum, located at the Wyoming State Fairgrounds […]

Well, thanks to the wonders of pharmaceuticals I’m at least able to write a blog for today. As Greg White posted for me yesterday, after checking me over on Monday the chiropractor was afraid to do any adjustments because she suspected my problem might be a kidney stone. She advised me to go to an […]
