Yesterday we had a visit from a celebrity from the RV world. Our friend Al Hesselbart drove up from Bushnell to spend the afternoon with us. We had not seen Al since last summer when we were at Elkhart Campground in Indiana and we were really looking forward to his visit. If you don’t know […]

Potpourri Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog. Just a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’ll share, because I really don’t have anything else […]

We woke up to a cold rain about 7:30 yesterday morning, and I wanted nothing more than to snuggle back under the covers with Miss Terry and sleep for another couple of hours. But we had to get up and get going, because we had a 10 o’clock appointment to get new tires put on […]

First of all, I want to thank everybody for your birthday greetings on the blog, by e-mail and on Facebook. You all make me feel very special.

I had an aunt who used to always tell me, “If you don’t ask, you don’t get.” It was probably some of the best advice I’ve ever received and I’ve found it to be true more often than not. Even, when I’m not really serious when I ask. Years ago we were at the Escapee’s […]

It has been gray and rainy the last two days, which is perfect for four things – writing, weaving, napping, and eating a batch of fresh hot chocolate chip cookies. Well, we batted about 50-50 on all that. I got a lot of writing done on my next Big Lake book and the story is […]

For the last few days it sounded like we were living in a war zone as people were popping off fireworks all over the place at every hour of the day and night. There is a nice neighborhood across from Elkhart Campground that backs up to Simonton Lake and I think every man, woman and […]

I want to start the day by wishing my daughter Tiffany happy birthday. Wow, was it really 32 years ago I first held that beautiful little girl? Where did the years go? Today she’s a grown lady with kids of her own. But you know what? Dad still loves holding her. Tiffany, I love you […]

Yesterday was a whirlwind of last minute chores as we got ready to leave Santa Fe RV Park in Apache Junction and move down to Tucson today. And we still didn’t get everything done that we wanted to! As always, the day started with answering a lot of e-mails and deleting even more without looking […]
