As I wrote a couple of days ago, Terry and I have long thought that if we ever hang up the keys, it might be in Titusville, Florida. And after spending several days in St. Augustine last week, we added it to our “possible” list when and if that day ever comes. However, while both […]

Add St. Augustine, Florida to the list of places I could live happily if we ever hang up the keys. It has everything we could ever want – nice weather, good restaurants, friendly people, access to beaches, all of the services one could ever need, and history around every corner. As the oldest continually occupied […]

There’s not much new to report here. It rained hard and the wind blew all night Wednesday night, and yesterday I spent over ten hours working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. So I thought I’d share a story from a previous edition of the paper, when we visited President Truman’s hideaway from […]

We love small towns. I spent most of my working life publishing small town newspapers, and though I have done it a time or two, if we ever hang up the keys I could never imagine living in a big city again. We have found in our fourteen years of fulltiming that it doesn’t matter […]

Until you’ve been in old town St. Augustine, Florida on Halloween evening, you just have not seen Halloween! We spent the day playing tourist in America’s oldest city, and saw everything from pirates and soldiers to zombies, witches and werewolves. I think they were dressed up for Halloween? Maybe that’s just the way folks roll […]

I spent most of yesterday getting some work done. Actually, I got a lot of work done. At least by the end of the day, I felt like I had been working. Of course my work never involves any kind of physical labor if there is any way at all to avoid it. And since […]

Thursday I got some good news that really blew me out of my chair. My mystery, Big Lake, had risen to number 23 in the Paid Kindle store, number 4 in Bestsellers in Mysteries & Thrillers, and even more amazing, it was listed at number 76 on the New York Times Kindle Bestseller List! The […]

Could it be true? Is it possible? Has the spell been broken? It looks like we’re going to have a decent winter here in Florida. We had a few windy, rainy days when we were over in Titusville, and we’re supposed to have some scattered rain today, but overall, the curse that follows me around […]

Yesterday was strange. We started the morning with our basement air conditioner on, and by the end of the night, we had our furnace on. Yes indeed, it’s official, Nick’s in Florida! 🙂 The more time we spend here  in Titusville, the more we like it. We are not close to being ready to get […]

On our first visit to Titusville, three years ago, we heard about the American Police Hall Of Fame & Museum, and added a visit to it to our bucket list. We decided yesterday that it was about time we crossed that one off, because no matter how many neat places we visit, or how many […]
