Scammers and con artists seem to be out in force this holiday season and every time I turn around I hear about a new one. Folks, you can never be too vigilant. When someone starts giving you a line of crap, listen to that little voice in your head, not to their spiel. I got an […]

I’m Not Alone

After reading yesterday’s blog, No, No, And Hell No!, several readers commented or sent me emails telling me not to feel lonely. One person said her husband is the local free fix-it man for the neighborhood, and he even gets calls in the middle of night for things like a drippy faucet. Someone else sent […]

While there is no question that there are some clods in the world who don’t realize that their actions can impact others, I think overall most people are nice and don’t go out of their way to be obnoxious. Many times new RVers do things that irritates those around them only because they don’t understand […]

I had another rough night Monday night, so when we got out of bed at 7:30 yesterday morning I wasn’t ready to start the day. But we had to get some miles put behind us, so I only sniveled a little bit as I got dressed and we started getting ready to hit the road. […]

All fulltime RVers know about hitch itch, that malady that affects us when we’ve stayed in one place too long. It starts out with a mild case of the doldrums, then we find ourselves reading about our friends’ traveling adventures on Facebook and start to envy them, even when they are in places we don’t […]

The Escapade officially ended yesterday, but with vendor days over on Thursday afternoon, we either had to pay for an extra night or leave by noon. We had plenty to keep us busy so we said our goodbyes and left yesterday. It got down into the low 30s overnight and it was downright frigid when […]

Congratulations to Virg Chomic, this week’s winner of an audiobook of Crazy Days in Big Lake, the third book in my Big Lake mystery series! We had 142 entries this week, and stay tuned because you may be next week’s lucky winner. The wind blew hard all Saturday night and Sunday morning, and when I […]

Since we only had a few miles to go, we were in no hurry yesterday morning. We checked e-mail, read our usual blogs, and puttered around for a while, then I went outside to dump our holding tanks and unplug our campground utilities. We hooked the Explorer to our Blue Ox tow bar and left […]

It rained hard all night Thursday night and when I opened my eyes a little after 7 a.m. yesterday all I wanted to do was roll over, cuddle up to Miss Terry, and go back to sleep. But alas, she was already up and about. I used my best puppy dog eyes to try to […]

Yesterday morning Miss Terry woke me up at 6:30, and she’d already been up for an hour or so. Now, I don’t care what all you worm eating early birds say, morning sucks. Especially cold mornings where my nice warm bed calls out and says, “Please don’t leave me!” But alas, I had to. We […]
