Apparently some folks don’t understand my twisted sense of humor. So just to clear the air, no, I did not change my car’s horn to gunshots as I said in yesterday’s thought for the day. Four different people posted blog comments or sent me e-mails to say that was scary or dangerous and I might […]

Well, a brand new year starts tomorrow and, as always, I’m excited to see what it holds for us. But first, it’s time for my annual year-end review, looking back at the twelve months behind us. And what a busy year it was! We started the year at the Escapees Sumter Oaks RV Park, near […]

Slacker Nick

I’m glad I don’t have a boss to report to, except Miss Terry, because yesterday I didn’t accomplish one darn thing. That’s right, I was a total slacker. A waste of skin. Just taking up space on old planet Earth. I had a whole bunch of e-mails to deal with in the morning and it […]

Neither of us felt great on Thanksgiving Day, so instead of going out to dinner, or having a big meal at home, we lazed around all day, had a light dinner and went to bed earlier than usual. So we had our Thanksgiving dinner yesterday. Miss Terry cooked a wonderful turkey breast (no drumsticks) with […]

Today we say a reluctant goodbye to the Florida Keys. We’ve been here just over two weeks and enjoyed every minute of it. Even though we didn’t get to do any fishing or boating, the variety of fresh seafood around here is phenomenal and the scenery is spectacular. And if you haven’t been to the […]

Relax, Greg, I didn’t buy a boat (yet). The bridge that gave us the views I’m sharing with you is the fishing bridge that parallels the vehicular bridge next to the campground. This was actually one of the old bridge structures that carried traffic in the “good old days.” When the highway was improved and […]

Wind And Whitecaps

We would really like to get our Sea Eagle kayaks wet while we’re down here in the Florida Keys, but so far the weather has not cooperated. It warmed up nicely yesterday, but the wind was still kicking up some strong gusts and there were whitecaps in several places. We’re not whitewater adventurists, we’re old […]

Happy New Year, everybody! I hope this year brings you much love, much adventure, much joy, good health, and prosperity. For us, the year has just started, and we’ve already shaken up the Jello that every fulltimer writes their plans in. We currently have a two week reservation at the Orlando Thousand Trails, starting on […]
