There was a 4×8 foot piece of white plastic trellis leaning against the outside of our garage when we bought this place, and we wanted to use it to enclose the propane tank we had installed for Terry’s new Samsung gas range. Yesterday I brought it out onto the big concrete apron in front of […]

Miss Terry and I had such a wonderful marriage for so long that some people even said we were codependent. If you saw one of us, you can bet the other was close at hand. Living in a motorhome for over 17 years, any time I looked up she was right there. I really miss […]

It’s Finally Empty!

Well, the motorhome is finally empty and everything has been moved into the house. Now if we could just figure out where to put all of it! At this point we have some stuff put away, but a lot more is stacked up here and there, kind of like airplanes in a holding pattern at […]

Terry and I both want to thank everybody for all of your well wishes following our announcement yesterday that we have purchased a place to be our winter base and someday retirement home here in Florida. You really have made us feel very special and very loved. A lot of you had questions, and I […]

A while back I posted a blog titled Strange Sights about some of the oddball things we have seen in our 17 years wandering America’s highways and back roads as fulltime RVers. But we’re not the only ones who see things that leave us scratching our heads and saying “huh?” When our friends Tom and […]

I think yesterday was one of those days when the stars were all aligned just right or something. I need more days like that. We had some orders to mail out, so in the early afternoon I went to the post office in Elkhart. When we were in Tuscaloosa, Alabama a couple of weeks ago […]

Goodbye Coach-Net

For fourteen years we have used Coach-Net for our roadside service and we’ve been very happy with them. They have always responded when we needed them and we’ve never had a complaint. But when our renewal comes due in mid-April we will be switching to Good Sam’s roadside service. I got an e-mail with my […]

Or a kite flier. The wind has really been blowing here in Bushnell, Florida, and all over the central part of the state, according to the weather reports. Unfortunately, we’re not on a beach and we haven’t found any place big enough to fly our Revolution kites. Yet. But trust me, we will. Yesterday we went […]

We are Floridians!

For some time now we have been planning to change our legal domicile from South Dakota to Florida. There were several reasons for this, including the fact that if and when we ever hang up the keys, it will be here in Florida. Other factors in our decision-making were that it’s difficult for fulltime RVers […]

The Balance Of Nature

Anybody who has spent much time wandering around in the outdoors knows that Mother Nature has a system of checks and balances. If there is season or two with good rain and good weather, small game like rabbits will appear in abundance. And being rabbits they breed like…. well, rabbits. One would think that before […]
