My newest book, Big Lake Fugitive, is moving right along through the pre-production stages. Terry finished the initial editing and proofreading on Saturday, and yesterday I finished making all of the corrections she suggested. Then I sent it off to my second proofreader. She’s usually pretty quick, and as soon as I get back from […]

With Miss Terry busy editing and proofing my new Big Lake mystery, yesterday was a catch-up day for me as I tried to get a handle on the emails and other things I had set aside during the push to get the book done. I got quite a bit accomplished, but not nearly as much […]

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. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog. This is another post in a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t […]

Let’s have a little experiment today. I’m going to tell you three things and write a short paragraph about each of them. Only one of those things is true. It’s up to you to decide which one it is. Okay, ready to play? 1) I seldom play the lottery because the odds of winning are […]

Hurricane season officially begins here in Florida on June 1. That doesn’t mean we are going to have a hurricane of course, just that we are in the season when they are more likely to form. Some prognosticators are saying that they expect at least fourteen named tropical storms and hurricanes in 2018, and of […]

I wanted to give you an update on our erosion control project. In a blog a few days ago I said that we tried sinking the first two 5-foot lengths of PVC pipe into the ground and got them down a foot or so and ran into rock or something and couldn’t pound them in […]

We were supposed to get a lot of rain yesterday and since we have been busy for several days in a row, Terry and I decided to just have a laid-back stay-at-home do-nothing day. That was the plan. But you know what they always say – if you want to hear God laugh, just make […]

Sometimes it’s hard for me to believe that two people who lived in a 320 square foot motorhome for so many years have been able to fill up this huge house and garage so quickly. Yet somehow, we’ve managed to do it. When I first saw our 1100 square foot garage I thought it was […]

It didn’t take long after we became fulltime RVers to realize that the best parts of America are on the two-lane back roads, away from the interstate highways. This is where you will find small town America, a world away from the generic shopping malls, big box stores, and chain restaurants of the big cities […]
