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 […]

Let’s Try Again

Today we’re going to try again to get our motorhome’s two piece windshield replaced. We had an appointment for last Friday but it was cancelled at the last minute, so hopefully we can get it done. Both sides have big cracks in them and I really want to get them done before we head south […]

It’s very often true that you get what you pay for. Sometimes when you make a purchase, it’s better to spend a little money up front for value that will last you a long time. A good example is Tilley hats. The first time I saw one I thought that they were a waste of […]

It started raining a little after midnight and continued for most of Saturday, like we needed more of it. The ground is saturated and water is standing in puddles everywhere. And we have more forecast for today. The rain didn’t really impact us because we’ve been busy labeling and stuffing envelopes pretty much nonstop. Except […]

We were so worn out from being up early three days in a row that I set yesterday’s blog to automatically post at midnight and we were in bed by 11:30 Monday night. And even though we slept well in spite of a heavy downpour sometime in the night, we were still tired when we […]

Where did yesterday go? I think I must have blinked and missed it. It was like, I woke up, I brushed my teeth, and ten minutes later it was time to brush my teeth and go back to bed. Of course, it didn’t help that I was up until almost 3 a.m. making notes of […]

I had a sense of déjà vu yesterday when I got an e-mail from Google’s AdSense department, informing me that my account has been disabled because it is not in compliance with their terms of service. I’ve had AdSense ads on my blogs for years now and earn several hundred dollars a month from them, […]

Losing Weight

Except for a couple of trips out to the dumpster with trash, we never left the motorhome all weekend, which was just as well because it was windy most of the time. I’ve not sure if we’ll drive out of here when we leave next week, or attach a pair of wings to the Winnebago […]

Déjà Vu

Yesterday was a déjà vu kind of day. I spent most of it writing, and Terry spent it doing some chores she wanted to get out of the way and doing some research on weaving. We had a mellow music channel on TV for background noise. Some authors say they can’t work with any noise […]

It Won’t Be Long Now

Yes, it won’t be long now. Christmas is coming up fast, and Miss Terry still won’t tell me what she wants for Christmas. I ask and she just says she doesn’t need anything. I keep reminding her that I didn’t ask her what she needed, I asked what she wanted. Terry’s not into jewelry or […]
