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 […]

I’ve never used drugs, and I haven’t smoked a cigarette or drank anything stronger than Pepsi in nearly 40 years, but I’m going through withdrawals right now. Sunday night our Dish Network receiver died and I can’t watch TV. Now, I know a lot of folks who could give a darn about TV, and some […]

We woke up to gray skies overhead yesterday, and decided that it would be a good day to just stay home and stay off the road. The predicted thunderstorms that were supposed to come to this area yesterday arrived right on time, in mid-afternoon. About 3:30 PM the already gray day suddenly turned as black […]

Yesterday morning Miss Terry decided that it was time to get some things done around here that we have been too busy to tackle until now. Since it was a comfortable day, with a very gentle breeze blowing to keep the mosquitoes and gnats down, it was a good day to do some outside chores. […]

After having to get up early all week while we were getting our TV cabinets upgraded at RV Renovators, I can’t begin to tell you how nice it was to sleep in yesterday morning. Especially given the weather! We had enjoyed temperatures in the low 80s for a while, but now winter has returned to […]

It’s Done!

I have to be honest, when we got up yesterday morning, I wasn’t entirely sure that the guys at RV Renovators would meet our deadline of getting finished by the end of the day. But Billy had told us not to worry, and true to his word, at 4:45 he backed our motorhome out of […]

News flash! As it turns out, you can watch TV in an RV after all! Who knew? You may remember that I reported in a blog last week titled You Can’t Watch TV In An RV that Dish Network was supposed to bring us a new high definition DVR receiver, but on the morning of […]

Yeah, I know, you watch TV in your RV all the time. I do, too. In fact, I have for over twelve years now. But according to the dweebs at Dish Network, you can’t watch TV in an RV. Who knew? In Monday’s blog, titled You Win Some, You Lose Some, I wrote that Dish […]

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. That’s life, and I guess if, in the end, your personal scoreboard shows more wins than losses, it was worth the effort, wasn’t it? Yesterday we did some winning and some losing, but I think we still came out ahead. After stopping to have our propane tank filled, and […]
