Mid-Day Sneak Away

One of the nice things about being an independent author who works from home is that I can set my own schedule. There are days when I spend long hours at the keyboard, only taking occasional breaks for a snack and for dinner, and there are days when we have other things going on and […]

Me And Otis

Is there anyone who doesn’t love the old Otis Redding classic song (Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay? I know I’ve tapped my feet to it a few thousand times in my life. Did you know that it was recorded by Redding just days before his death in an airplane crash in 1967? The […]

Making Some Headway

I think we’re making some headway with my back problems but it seems like it’s two steps forward and one step back. After going back to the chiropractor on Tuesday and getting an adjustment, I was still experiencing some tenderness but nothing compared to the pain I had been dealing with for five days. In […]

We Have Visitors!

A few days ago in a blog titled The Snowbirds Are Back, I shared a picture of a pair of ospreys that return to the same tree across the street from our house to nest every year. They can be noisy, but we always enjoy watching them as they raise their little ones and get […]

A Very Relaxing Day

Thank you to everybody who left comments, sent emails, or Facebook messages expressing concern about our unwelcome visitor Friday night. We are fine, just irritated by the fact that we have so many people like that in this world, running around bothering folks who are minding their own business and don’t want to be involved […]

It’s been a writing marathon for the last few days for me. I got 8,000 words done Tuesday, and another 8,000 yesterday, and finished my newest book, Big Lake Tragedy. Today I will give it a final read-through and make any corrections that I see, then I will print it out so Miss Terry can […]

My First In Florida

One of the things that really sold us on our house is that the little manufactured home community we live in has its own private 300 foot fishing pier on the Indian River, along with a private boat launch. But we’ve been here over a month, and except for one quick adventure dipping shrimp with […]

Today Is The Day!

We closed on our house on the 17th, but because Hurricane Matthew had delayed everything in the area, the people we bought it from were not able to close and move into their new place on schedule. So we told them that rather than move all of their things into a storage locker and pay […]

We spent yesterday with my daughter and her family at Sea World in San Diego, and as expected, those two grandkids of mine ran all four of us adults ragged, and still had energy to spare! Don’t let those oil company clowns fool you, there is no energy crisis. All we need to do is […]
