Thank you to everybody who left blog comments and sent emails or messages about the return of my back problems. I had a rough night and woke up yesterday morning about 8 AM with the pain back in full force. I really don’t like to take heavy-duty pain meds, but every medical person I know […]

Ever since I first heard John Denver sing about West Virginia I always wanted to go there and see those beautiful mountains and green valleys he sang about. While I always enjoyed the man’s music, apparently the part of West Virginia that John Denver was familiar with wasn’t along US Highway 52. We’ve covered a […]

As I said in yesterday’s blog, we took a road trip to visit family and friends and do some genealogy research, along with gathering lots of stories about interesting places to visit for my blog readers. Rather than cram too much into one very long blog, I will be talking about the overall details of […]

I wasn’t surprised that three or four people contacted me after reading yesterday’s blog to tell me they were so excited that Terry and I are going to be RVing again, at least on a part-time basis. Obviously they didn’t read the entire blog, or else they have short-term memory loss. I’m not sure which. So, […]

When we dropped our Winnebago off at PPL Motorhomes in Houston, Texas at the end of September, the rep who looked it over and did all of the consignment sale paperwork predicted it would sell within 45 days. 30 days later they took an offer on it and it was listed as Sale Pending. We […]

I don’t know if the stock market is up or down today because I’ve never been an investor. The way I look at it, I work hard enough for my money that I don’t care to hand it to somebody else so they can “manage” it for me. There’s a reason they call those guys […]

Happy New Year everybody! I hope this year brings you lots of love, health, happiness, and adventure. I always think of the first day of a new year like I’m opening a new book full of blank pages. I wonder what those pages will hold this time next year? In yesterday’s blog I told you […]

Can you believe it’s the last day of the year already? I am amazed at how quickly 2017 went by. They say that time goes fast when you’re having fun, and we sure have had a lot of that. Of course, they also say that time speeds up as you get older, and there’s no […]

Do you remember when I said in yesterday’s blog that after I got my latest book, Big Lake Snowdaze, out how I planned to goof off for a couple of weeks? I’m not sure how that’s going to work out. As it turns out, I don’t do leisure well. Yesterday morning I gave the new […]

A week or so ago I wrote in the blog that there were two recalls on our Chrysler Pacifica. One was to download a change in the computer software to fix a flaw in a sending unit, and the other was to replace a seatbelt connector in one of the rear seats. The day before […]
