We were up by 7:30 yesterday morning, ready to start our long trip east from not so sunny Arizona. It was another cold night, so cold that when I ran the living room slide in, big sheets of ice fell off the top of it. Hopefully now that I’ve left the state the snowbirds can […]

Come to Arizona, they said. It’s the sunbelt, they said. It’s nice and warm in the winter, they said. They lied. Here in Tucson we had more rain Thursday night, and again off and on most of yesterday. And it was still darned cold. Here is a picture a blog reader sent me of the […]

The rain finally cleared out sometime early Tuesday morning and we woke up to mostly blue sky, something we have not seen in a while. And to make it even better, it was in the low 60s and the wind wasn’t blowing. While I’d prefer it was in the 70s, I can live with that. […]

You Have Been Warned!

High winds and very cold temperatures across the southwest made for a miserable day yesterday. When I went outside to dump our holding tanks in the afternoon, I would have sworn I was in the Arctic, not Arizona. If this crap keeps up much longer, I’m going to launch into an epic sniveling fit that […]

Well, I planned to get some writing done yesterday, and Miss Terry planned to get some weaving done. But as they taught us in the Army, you can plan as much as you want to, and everything still goes to hell when boots hit the ground. Such was the case yesterday. It started out with […]

A Long Traffic Jam

After spending most of Monday morning on the telephone arguing with the idiots at Temecula Valley Hospital to get them to release my records to the VA hospital in Tucson that they were supposed to do last week, they finally got off their lazy butts and did something and sent the records late on Monday, […]

We Made It To Tucson

Before I get started today, I want to wish all of you Happy Thanksgiving. Whether you’re sharing the day with family back home or with friends in an RV park somewhere, I hope you have a wonderful day full of happiness and good food. We were up early yesterday morning, a habit that we really […]

I had another rough night Monday night, so when we got out of bed at 7:30 yesterday morning I wasn’t ready to start the day. But we had to get some miles put behind us, so I only sniveled a little bit as I got dressed and we started getting ready to hit the road. […]

No, I’m not talking about those folks in Washington who are busy taking bribes and shafting all of us, though you shouldn’t trust them either. But I’ll get to all of that in a moment. After we’ve been sitting still for a while, we never seem to sleep well the night before we begin a […]

I had a lot of plans yesterday, but time got away from me and I didn’t get much accomplished. Sometimes that happens. The first thing on the agenda was running a few errands during the day, and then back at the Elks lodge campground we walked over to the host’s site for a quick visit. […]
