Charles and Chris left their lot in the Yuma Foothills a little after 7 a.m. yesterday morning, and after checking e-mail and the news to see who we’re at war with this week, we were not too far behind them. It was about 9:30 by the time we had pulled out of their lot, turned […]

Good Results

Thank you for all of the e-mails and Facebook comments of encouragement for Terry’s dad. He had laparoscopic surgery yesterday to remove his infected gall bladder and the results were good. There was no evidence of this being related to his previous cancer, and Terry talked to him a few hours after surgery and he […]

Thanks for all of the nice anniversary wishes everybody sent us as blog comments, e-mails, and on Facebook. You all make us feel very, very loved. Except for writing this blog, I didn’t do a lick of work yesterday. We slept in, then stayed in bed and snuggled a while, talking about the last fifteen […]

I think I’m getting the hang of this being lazy thing. Of, course, I’ve had most of 60 years to perfect the process. Yesterday we slept in, mostly because it got down into the 40s overnight and it was so darned chilly that neither of us wanted to crawl out from under those warm covers. […]

A Man Of My Word

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that we planned to sleep late, and then do absolutely nothing the rest of the day, and I’m a man of my word. That’s exactly what we did! Sometimes we need days like that, where we shut out the rest of the world and just play hooky from life. I […]

Yesterday was one of those frustrating days when I just could not make any progress, no matter how hard I tried. Don’t you hate it when that happens? I started out by wading through the morning’s load of e-mails, including one from somebody who routinely sends me forwards, telling me it was very rude of […]

After driving 460 miles Tuesday, from Elkhart to Muskegon, Michigan, on to Traverse City to visit my cousin in the hospital there, and then back to Muskegon, we had just enough energy left to grab a bite to eat and watch a little TV, before crashing in Rocky and Berni Frees’ spare bedroom. Yesterday morning, […]

A Snuggle Day

With the paper out of the way, and with a couple of days to kill before we can pick up the envelopes from the commercial mail service, yesterday was designated as a snuggle day. We treat ourselves to one of those every now and then, and treasure them. Since I had worked late the night […]

How Do You Get Online?

I had an e-mail from a couple who are three months into their new fulltime RV lifestyle and have quickly become discouraged with the often unreliable RV park WiFi systems they have encountered. They said that the service has ranged from free to paid, with the only common denominator being that it never seems to […]

Yesterday was a rainy day here in Tillamook, Oregon. It started raining sometime in the wee hours of the morning, and it kept up all day long. Sometimes it really poured, and at other times it was more of a drizzle, or even a sprinkle. A typical Pacific Northwest coast day. Which made it a […]
