Potpourri Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection.

After reading my blog about all the fun we are missing at the Escapees RV Club‘s Escapade rally, which is going on in Tucson this week, I got emails from two different people who told me they had heard a rumor that I had been fired from the Escapade staff and that we are no […]

Did anybody get the license number of the truck that hit me? Because I think he went around the block and came back and did it again! It’s not enough that my back has been hurting for quite a while now, but Saturday evening my throat started feeling scratchy and by bedtime a cold was […]

Happy Birthday America! Isn’t it wonderful to live free in the greatest country the world has ever known? I don’t know about you, but as the old Lee Greenwood song proclaims, I truly am proud to be an American. Today is the last day of the Escapees RV Club Escapade rally, and following a catered […]
