Lately I have been hearing from people asking me to promote their life coaching business to my readers. Apparently that’s the hot new thing to make a living without really working while you travel the country. Interestingly enough, none of them have spent much time, if any, on the road. Only one of them actually […]

You all know Miss Terry is a fabulous cook, and she likes having a bigger kitchen here at the house than she did in the motorhome so she can whip up all of her tasty creations. However, even though the kitchen is bigger, it’s not perfect. Not yet, anyway. One thing that really bothered Terry […]

Back To The Basics

We always enjoy finding unique places to visit, whether they be oddball museums, historic sites, bizarre roadside attractions, or businesses that defy the logic that only big box stores can survive in today’s economy. We found just such a place in the charming Amish community of Mesopotamia, Ohio. While many people think of the Amish […]

No, there were no spaceships landing in our driveway in the last few days. We did have a visitor, but she didn’t come from that far away! Jill Baum used to work for my White Mountain Weekly newspaper back in Arizona about 24 years ago. We lost touch as time went on and she moved […]

They say the two happiest days in a boat owner’s life are the day he buys it and the day he sells it. I’m pretty sure that holds true for RV owners, too. Having just gone through the sales experience, I thought I would share some thoughts about it. Please keep in mind that this […]

I know I’m dating myself, but as a kid I had a nifty device known as a View-Master, into which you put round cardboard disks that contained color images and when you looked through the viewfinder, you had a 3-D stereoscopic view. You could get all kinds of disks for the View-Master, everything from Disney […]

If One Is Good…

If acquiring one antique console radio is good, getting two of them must be better, right? At least, that’s how I planned to explain it to Miss Terry. As I wrote in a recent blog post titled Radios And More Radios!, I have been looking for a nice old console radio to put in my […]

I have celebrated the wonders of a product called Strike HoldĀ here in the blog before. It’s a cleaner that removes rust, corrosion, and carbon; it penetrates deep to clean away debris and loosen stuck metal and electrical contacts, and it is an excellent dry lubricant. The first time we saw this stuff was at an […]

She’s Still At It

In a blog post a couple weeks ago I said that Miss Terry had come out of retirement to help me hang paneling in our garage. Of course, anybody who has known us for very long knows that she was the one running the project and doing all the thinking and planning. I was the […]

We had a busy weekend, and by the end of the day yesterday we had finished paneling one of the 50 foot long walls of the garage, except for trim pieces. Cutting the paneling to fit around the two windows was the most time-consuming part. That’s the longest continual wall. The front and back are […]
