Okay, we all know that’s not true. The thought of crossing the Mackinac Bridge in Michigan and the Astoria-Megler Bridge in Oregon still terrifies me. But the Sunshine Skyway Bridge over Tampa Bay? It’s a piece of cake. We crossed it twice a week ago today when I had to go to the Bay Pines […]

Windy!

The weatherman had been predicting a cooling trend with heavy winds across Arizona yesterday and he sure didn’t lie! The breeze was stiff all morning, and about noon it really began to pick up. I was glad we didn’t have our big patio awning out! The wind increased all afternoon and the news was reporting […]

I’ve never used drugs, and I haven’t smoked a cigarette or drank anything stronger than Pepsi in nearly 40 years, but I’m going through withdrawals right now. Sunday night our Dish Network receiver died and I can’t watch TV. Now, I know a lot of folks who could give a darn about TV, and some […]

We must have been really tired Saturday night, because sometime Sunday morning Miss Terry got up and turned on the basement air conditioner because it was getting warm inside the motorhome, and then came back to bed. I was vaguely aware of it and snuggled up against her, and the next thing I knew she […]

We were awakened yesterday morning by car doors slamming shut. Then more cars doors. And then even more car doors! As it turns out, Patio Gardens, where we are staying, was having its annual garage sale. This is basically a 55+ mobile home park, with a few RV sites, and every year the folks have […]

Rained Out In Webster

Just as it has for so much of this winter, yesterday the weather put a crimp in our plans. Again. Several years ago when we were in Florida, we went to the big Webster Flea Market, which is held every Monday, and Miss Terry really enjoyed browsing all of the vendors, and searching for bargains […]

After all of the fun and activity of my family reunion on Saturday, we had a lazy Sunday. Just as I promised in yesterday’s blog, we slept in late, then spent most of the day in the motorhome, just taking it easy. Every once in a while, a day like that is good for everybody. […]

Yesterday we drove 75 miles south to Pinellas Park, located just north of Saint Petersburg, to look at different racks for our hard shell kayaks. I love my Sea Eagle PaddleSki 435 inflatable kayak and won’t give it up, but Miss Terry is happy with her hard shell Manta Ray. We wanted to check out […]

When I first heard about Apple’s new tablet computer, I have to admit that my first reaction was “So what? I already have a desktop computer, a laptop computer, and a netbook computer. What can the iPad do that they can’t?” Then I saw my first iPad, and my immediate reaction was “I want one!”  […]

It’s windy again here in Northern Arizona, go figure. Yesterday,  for the fourth time in four weeks, Interstate 40 east of Flagstaff was closed due to high wind and blowing dust. Will it ever stop? The wind blew hard all day yesterday, with gusts over 60 miles per hour. It never let up all night […]
