Number 18

I didn’t sleep well the night before and woke up feeling groggy yesterday morning, so it was a little after noon before I started writing. But I still managed to crank out another 5,500 words and finished Badge Bunny, the third book in my John Lee Quarrels mystery series. It came in at just over 79,000 […]

I received an email the other day from someone telling me that they had reservations at the Las Vegas Thousand Trails preserve for two weeks this month, but now they’re thinking about canceling them because they are worried about the mass shooting that happened there earlier this month. They asked me if I thought it […]

Not Just By E-mail

Before I do anything else today, I want to wish Terry’s mother happy birthday. I’m not sure my mother-in-law always knows how to take me, but she has let her daughter hang out with me for the last 19 years so I guess I must be doing something right. Happy birthday, Bess! We love you. […]

Please watch where you’re walking around us for a while, will you? Because mine and Miss Terry’s butts are dragging and I wouldn’t want you to step on them. With my dad’s work when I was a kid, and later my time in the military and living in different places around the country afterward, I […]

Google is a wonderful resource. You can find anything there. Need a recipe for sourdough bread? Just Google it! Trying to figure out how to set the points in a ’66 Pontiac Bonneville? Google it! Can’t remember the name of that obscure actor who drove the bus in some 1960s sitcom? Just Google it! Anything […]

We Make It Work

Several blog readers have asked how big Miss Terry’s Baby Wolf loom is and how much space it takes up in our motorhome. The loom folds up when not in use. When it’s opened up, the loom’s footprint is about three feet square, with the beam handle adding another six inches or so to its […]

I’ll admit that I stole some of these from advice I received back when I was learning to fly or ride a motorcycle, but I think they are just as appropriate to driving an RV. 1) No one has ever hit something at too slow a speed. 2) Always try to keep the number of times […]

A Change Of Plans

When we left Daytona Beach RV Resort in Port Orange yesterday morning, we planned to come to the Elks lodge in St. Augustine and spend a few days, maybe as much as a week, before we continued north. One of the great things about the RV lifestyle is that if you don’t like the neighbors […]

The Day Went Astray

We planned to get a lot done yesterday here at home. My goal was at least 4,000 words in my sequel to Dog’s Run, and I was hoping to get all the way up to 6,000 done. Meanwhile, Miss Terry wanted to get the 464 threads threaded through the heddles on her loom for her […]

It Got Here Eventually

When we had dinner with Charles and Chris Yust Friday evening we had discussed going to New Smyrna Beach yesterday. They have not been there, and there were three or four properties that we wanted to look at. So we were up early yesterday morning but the weather didn’t look too good. I messaged a […]
