Taking A Day Off

I’ve been working pretty hard on my new book and I’m just past the halfway point. While I’ve been busy with that, Terry finished her weaving project and then has been catching up on her bookkeeping. So yesterday we both needed a day off. After some errands in the morning, in the afternoon we drove […]

We Did It Again

Yesterday was another dreary, rainy day here at the Colorado River Thousand Trails preserve in Columbus, Texas. We didn’t want to leave our cozy bed and had to force ourselves to get up sometime after 10 a.m. So much for our commitment to getting up earlier in the day. When we finally did get in […]

Thank You Fleetwood

Those of you who have been following our saga all along may remember the Motorhome From Hell, our first RV, which was a Fleetwood lemon. It literally fell apart driving down the highway and we spent the first eighteen months of our fulltime adventure running from dealer to dealer and even to the factory, trying […]

Bad Neighbors

The great thing about the fulltime RV lifestyle is that if we don’t like the neighbors or the neighborhood, we can always move. And we’ve done it a few times over the years. Why stay someplace you don’t like, or where the people next door irritate you? Unfortunately, not everybody has that luxury. This is […]

As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, we needed to find out if we could move to Countryside RV Resort for two weeks or if we would have to go to Plan B, since our month here at Patio Gardens is up today. As it turns out, we’re staying with Plan A. I called Thousand Trails […]

Today is my daughter Tiffany’s 31st birthday, and it seems like it was only yesterday that I was strapping her car seat into the back seat of my Lincoln Town Car to take her home from the hospital. Now she’s a grown woman with two little girls of her own. Where do the years go? […]

Thanks for all of the nice anniversary wishes everybody sent us as blog comments, e-mails, and on Facebook. You all make us feel very, very loved. Except for writing this blog, I didn’t do a lick of work yesterday. We slept in, then stayed in bed and snuggled a while, talking about the last fifteen […]

Even though we’re far south of where Hurricane Sandy came ashore, and have had pretty good weather since we’ve been here, it took a turn for the worse yesterday. The wind blew hard most of the day and the temperature dropped quite a bit. I don’t think the high got much over 60° and the […]

A Busy Birthday

Miss Terry wanted me to pass on her thanks to the many, many people who posted comments on the blog, sent e-mails, or posted birthday greetings on Facebook. I don’t think she realized how many fans she has out there, but you all really made her feel special. Thank you. We left Elkhart Campground a […]

Mac Attack!

After reading everybody’s positive comments about Mac computers, you all convinced me that it was time to take the plunge. So yesterday we took ourselves off to the Apple store at University Park Mall in Mishawaka to go computer shopping. I had already done a lot of research, and decided that the iMac was the […]
