It’s Almost Over

Well, it won’t be long now. In just a couple more days the mad rush to the stores to buy a bunch of stuff people don’t really want so that you can give it to them for Christmas, (and in return they’ll buy you a bunch of stuff you don’t want), will be over. Of […]

Most of you already know that Miss Terry can do darned near anything she sets her mind to, from driving the motorhome to building the cabinets in our old MCI bus conversion, so it was only natural for her to be the one to help Phil Botnick with installing our inverter the other day. But […]

I finished the new issue of the paper yesterday, and after Terry gave it a final proof and I made the corrections I uploaded it to our printer’s web server. They’ll check it again today and get it ready to put on the press. It always feels good to get a new issue done. This […]

A Wasted Trip

We were out of bed a little after 7 a.m. yesterday morning and on the road by 9, headed back down to Tucson in the Explorer for a 1 p.m. appointment with a rheumatologist at the V.A. hospital. As it turns out, it was a wasted trip. We made excellent time, getting to Tucson about […]

We slept in yesterday morning and then spent a while catching up on the backlog of e-mail that had piled up while we were gone all day Thursday at the VA hospital. Even after deleting all of the forwards and spam, I still had almost 100. I think I need a secretary. About 2 p.m. […]

As I have mentioned a few times recently, I’ve been busy working on a new book formatting project that has taken quite a while to get finished. Well, I finally wrapped it up Thursday night, and I’m excited to tell you that we have a new author in the family! That’s right. In response to […]

Since we only had a few miles to go, we were in no hurry yesterday morning. We checked e-mail, read our usual blogs, and puttered around for a while, then I went outside to dump our holding tanks and unplug our campground utilities. We hooked the Explorer to our Blue Ox tow bar and left […]

Sunbelt My Butt!

Who said Arizona was in the Sunbelt, a place where retirees and snowbirds could while away the winter months in warm comfort? Whoever they were, they lied! It’s been a cold, wet, windy weekend here at the Pima County Fairgrounds in Tucson and I’m freezing! I think if I started driving right now and kept […]

If the weatherman is to be believed, yesterday was the last nice day we’re supposed to have here on the Oregon coast for a while. It’s supposed to start raining today and not stop until sometime the middle of next week. Terry and I decided we had better take advantage of the blue sky while […]

Worker Bee

A couple of days ago I wrote a blog post titled Busy As A Bee. So I guess the appropriate title for today’s post is Worker Bee. Because that’s what I was all day yesterday. Miss Terry left with her mom and dad for a series of pre-op medical appointments a little before 10, and […]
