It seemed like every day for the last week or two the weatherman has been predicting rain for our area. And though there has been some rain come down around us, all we have had here is a brief shower or two that lasted for a couple of minutes. But that all changed yesterday. A […]

That’s what I accomplished yesterday. Absolutely nothing worth talking about. All I did was take up space and use up oxygen. I started the day by doing my mile on the treadmill, then answered some emails and deleted half a dozen forwards without opening them. I’ll never understand why people continue to send me stuff […]

Happy New year, everybody. I always think of New Year’s Day as the start of a new book, with every day being a blank page. 2017 has 365 pages. What will you write on those pages? My hope for you is that this time next year, when you look back over those pages, there will […]

Those four words above, the title to today’s blog, they are the reason I can never run for any kind of elected office. I mean, after all, have you ever heard any politician ever say those words? I spent a career in the newspaper business and interviewed everybody from candidates for small town city councils […]

A New Record

It has been miserably hot here in Elkhart the last couple of days, with temperatures up in the 90s and high humidity, which upped the heat index to around 100°. Fortunately, the basement air conditioner on our Winnebago motorhome cranks out enough cold air that even with some of the ceiling air vents closed, it’s […]

No, Miss Terry does not have an eating disorder, but she has been purging for days now. She decided she was tired of carrying around so much stuff that never gets used so she’s been going through all of the cabinets and clearing things out. Lots of stuff has gone to the dumpster, and other […]

Yesterday was a busy day, much of it spent in Frustration City. You know that place, right? It’s where all of the bureaucrats and idiots of the world work. And I talked to a bunch of them! I get my medical care through the Veterans Administration (VA) Health System, and my primary care provider is […]

By working pretty much nonstop except to sleep, Terry finished proofing and editing Big Lake Brewpub yesterday afternoon. I was busy making corrections as she did, and had them finished and sent it off to my second proofreader yesterday evening. Now she’ll do her thing and get it back to me and I’ll make those […]

A lot of readers are asking me when my next Big Lake book will be out. I learned a long time ago to never give a definite date, because when I do, something always seems to get in the way and throw me off schedule. But I got another 3,500 words or so in yesterday […]
