Note: I posted this blog last Memorial Day, and I don’t feel it can be repeated too many times. Today is not about cookouts, or car races, or getting out of town for a three day weekend at the lake or campground. It’s about more than that. Much, much more. It is a day to […]

I have not had a drink of alcohol for over 40 years, it’s just not my thing and my stomach doesn’t handle it well, but I once had a friend who enjoyed an evening out bar hopping. At least once a week you could find him someplace playing pool and having a few drinks. But […]

It’s A Wet Heat

We lived in the White Mountains of northern Arizona before we hit the road as fulltime RVers but before that Terry and I both lived in the desert. Desert rats will tell you that, sure it’s 120°, but it’s a dry heat due to the low humidity. My response has always been that it’s dry […]

Before I do anything else, I want to wish my granddaughter Destiny a very happy birthday. We were there when she was born and it’s hard to believe she’s already nine years old. Where does the time go? I wish we could be there with you to celebrate your special day, sweetie. Grandma Terry and […]

Yesterday was an in and out morning. No, not the hamburger chain. My trip to the VA clinic here in Bradenton, Florida. I had an appointment at 8:45 for lab work, and they said to arrive 15 minutes early. We got there at the appointed time, I checked in, and a few minutes later they […]

17 hours? Seriously?

I have some medical tests at the VA clinic here in Bradenton this morning, and in preparation I had to fast for 17 hours. 17 hours? Seriously? Usually I’ve been told not to eat anything after midnight, but 17 hours? I’m going to be one hungry fat boy before everything is finished! Fortunately, it’s only […]

I hear from a lot of new and wannabe RVers who are single and wondering how well they will fit into the RV lifestyle. Some are worried that they will be a third wheel alone among a community of traveling couples. Not at all! I don’t think you could find any more accepting and welcoming […]

I had pretty much been chained to my desk for three days getting my new Big Lake mystery novel done. And even though I wanted to finish the read-through before I handed it off to Miss Terry so she could start editing and proofing it, we both really needed a day off. So yesterday we […]

I finished my newest book, Big Lake Brewpub, yesterday afternoon and started giving it a read through, tweaking things here and there. I’ll finish with that today and then turn it over to Miss Terry for the first round of editing and proofing. When she is done with that I’ll make the necessary revisions and […]
