We Make It Work

Several blog readers have asked how big Miss Terry’s Baby Wolf loom is and how much space it takes up in our motorhome. The loom folds up when not in use. When it’s opened up, the loom’s footprint is about three feet square, with the beam handle adding another six inches or so to its […]

Frugal Or Cheap?

I got an e-mail yesterday from a reader who asked why anyone would consider spending a night at a WalMart, truck stop, or highway rest area when there are so many campgrounds around the country. She asked if the RVers who do this are all cheapskates, or it there is ever a legitimate reason to […]

No, not my hair, or what’s left of it. It may be silver, but it passed 60 a few years ago. I’m talking about Silver Avions, beautiful classic travel trailers that many people think are Airstreams when they first see them. Actually, many people I know who have Avions think they’re far superior to Airstreams. […]

Busy As Bees

Terry and I have been as busy as bees the last few days, and we’ve gotten a lot accomplished, but we still have more to do. I’ve been working hard on my new Big Lake mystery novel, cranking out an average of 4000 words a day. I’m over two thirds done now and I’m looking […]

Happy birthday to my country, the greatest nation the world has ever known. We’ve had a lot of problems along the way, and sometimes some of us have strayed from the path, but we all seem to get together when we need to and get the job done. I know there’s a lot of turmoil […]

I don’t know what it is about food cooked outside on a grill, but it doesn’t matter if it’s hot dogs, hamburgers, or steak, it just all seems to taste better to me. So when the folks from ManGrate contacted me a while back to ask if I would be interested in receiving a pair […]

I had pretty much been chained to my desk for three days getting my new Big Lake mystery novel done. And even though I wanted to finish the read-through before I handed it off to Miss Terry so she could start editing and proofing it, we both really needed a day off. So yesterday we […]

Miss Terry hasn’t been feeling very well so we didn’t do much of anything away from the motorhome over the weekend. She got a lot of laundry done and some other chores around the house, while I spent a lot of time researching and writing for my newest Big Lake mystery novel. We did go […]

Back At It

It sure feels good to be writing again. Anytime I’m away from it I realize how much I miss doing it. Except for my daily RV blog I have not had any time for writing the last few weeks, but I’m back at it and things are rolling right along. Friday I wrote 1,500 words […]

How Does She Do It?

It’s rained so much the last couple of days that we spent the weekend at home, just waiting for things to dry out a little bit. We made good use of the time – I reformatted several of my print books for Amazon’s Create Space print division on Saturday while Miss Terry worked her way […]
