A Busy Day At Home

Yesterday was a busy day at home, and I got quite a bit accomplished. The first order of business was to deal with a backlog of emails that piled up while I was busy getting registered at the Veterans Administration medical clinic in Daytona Beach on Tuesday. And as always, the first thing I did […]

We Got Some Good News

The comfortable temperatures of mid to upper 70s that we’ve been enjoying for the last week or so in Elkhart have gone away and for the last two days it’s been in the upper 80s. And it looks like we will be in the mid to upper 80s for the foreseeable future. Fortunately, the basement […]

After a quick visit with Greg and Jan yesterday morning we pulled out of the Colorado River Thousand Trails in Columbus, Texas at 10 o’clock, eastbound on Interstate 10. I was a little apprehensive about going through Houston, but Greg had assured me that on a Sunday morning it shouldn’t be bad at all. And he […]

Our Love Story

Today is a very special day for myself and Miss Terry. It’s our eighteenth wedding anniversary, and we still feel (and often act) like newlyweds. This was not the first marriage for either of us, and believe me, it was not something that either one of us was looking for, or even expected to happen. […]

We’ve been on the go a lot lately, so we decided to make yesterday a stay at home day. But that doesn’t mean we weren’t busy. I spent a couple of hours answering a backlog of e-mail and reading some of my favorite blogs. One e-mail was typical of ones that I get at least […]

It was a cold, wet, windy weekend and I’m sure glad it’s over. Between strong wind, rain, scattered snow showers, light hail, and temperatures down in the upper 20s, it was a good time to stay inside. And that’s just what we did yesterday. Terry spent much of the day editing and proofing my new […]

Gas Attack!

No, I wasn’t suffering gastric distress, this is something else altogether. Even worse, if you can believe that. We spent yesterday getting our old RV refrigerator out of the motorhome. Or at least that was the plan. We made some headway, but no project ever goes as easily as planned, and we’re not quite there […]

I’ve never made it a secret of the fact that I am no fan of the tactics of a great many RV dealers and RV salespeople. There are a lot of honest, ethical people in the RV industry. But we seldom hear about them, because the sad truth is that there are also a lot […]
