In a blog post the other day titled Finally Got It Wet, I wrote about our first outing with our Bennington pontoon boat. I also shared that while our time on the water was very nice, we ran into a problem once we had the boat loaded onto the scissor trailer and inside our garage. […]

I have no idea how accurate it is, if at all, but yesterday someone told me about an app called We’re Related from Ancestry.com that is supposed to tell you the probability of any famous people you might be related to. Just for the heck of it, I gave it a try and was surprised […]

Busy Doing Nothing

I spent most of yesterday being very busy doing not much of anything at all, if that makes any sense. If you’ve ever been an employer, you know what I’m talking about because you’ve probably seen employees do that more than once. I had written the first chapter of my next John Lee Quarrels book […]

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 […]

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 […]
