I’m back with more questions from blog readers about RVing, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, and all kinds of other things. While I try to answer all questions individually, I also share some here occasionally. Q. My husband is an introvert who is perfectly happy staying home reading books […]

With Christmas coming, I thought I’d make a few gift suggestions for the RVers on your shopping list, or even as a treat for yourself. We use, or have used, all of the products ourselves and feel confident in recommending them to you. Midland Two Way Radios – With over a 30 mile range, a […]

Whether you are spending today at home with family or in an RV park somewhere sharing a community meal, Terry and I want to wish everybody a happy Thanksgiving. Life has its ups and downs for all of us, but over all we have been very blessed, and we are thankful for that. When we […]

If you are driving from the Georgia state line all the way south to Key West, Florida is about 500 miles long. But east to west, at its widest point it’s only 160 miles. Yeah, it’s a narrow state. Which is good because we made the round-trip from coast-to-coast yesterday. When we first met, Miss […]

I have been walking a mile a day on my treadmill, trying to get at least a little bit of exercise to help overcome my pretty much sedentary lifestyle. I don’t think I’m ever going to be skinny, but I would sure like to shed enough pounds get down to just being fat instead of […]

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, a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t have anything else to talk […]

Miss Terry and my other proofreaders all went the extra mile, like they always do, and finished with my latest book, Strawberry Slugbug, Monday evening. So yesterday I went through the manuscript making their corrections and getting it formatted to publish. It’s always a crap shoot as to how long Amazon’s Kindle publishing program takes […]

I know it’s only been a couple of weeks since my last Q&A column, but I’ve been getting a lot of questions from readers that I thought might be of interest to some of you as well, so here we go. Q. I’m 72 and wondering if it’s “too late” for me, as much as […]

Really? A Play Date?

I know I’m showing my age here, but I have to ask. What the hell is a play date? And why do kids need them? I had never heard of a play date until the last few years. If we had play dates when I was a kid, it consisted of all the mothers in […]

Because I get a lot of e-mails from blog readers asking about RV financing, I thought I’d brush off this blog from March, 2014 and run it again. I hear from people all the time who have a good credit rating, have found the perfect RV for their needs, and then run into trouble when […]
