It has taken me a while to get used to my new Moto Z Play phone, but overall I’m very pleased with it. The camera is excellent, the battery life is amazing, and I get a better signal with it here in our fringe Verizon reception area than I did with my Samsung. There has […]

I’m So Stuffed!

I’ll tell you right now, the turkey wasn’t the only thing to get stuffed at our house for Thanksgiving! We had a quiet day at home, just the two of us, which is just the way we like it. Miss Terry had bought a turkey breast and cooked it, along with all the goodies, and […]

The Park Model Option

Something we started hearing almost as soon as we became fulltime RVers 17 years ago was about the importance of having an exit plan. Back then we were in our mid-40s and among the youngest full timers out there. My, how things have changed since then! More and more of the baby boomer generation retired […]

Pins And Needles

We have been on pins and needles the last few weeks, waiting for the outcome of some health issues. When I was in the hospital in Temecula, California back in mid-November they said an ultrasound found a cyst on my left kidney. They did a second ultrasound and said it was a mass and I […]

I Prefer Hitch Itch

All fulltime RVers know about hitch itch, that malady that affects us when we’ve stayed in one place too long. It starts out with a mild case of the doldrums, then we find ourselves reading about our friends’ traveling adventures on Facebook and start to envy them, even when they are in places we don’t […]

A Change Of Scenery

The great thing about the RV lifestyle is that if you don’t like the neighbors or the neighborhood, you can leave. Or sometimes just because hitch itch sets in and you want a new view out your windows. We love Elkhart Campground, but after a couple of months there we were ready for a change […]

Are You Rich?

Did you buy a ticket for last night’s lottery drawing? Are you rich yet? Better you than me. I’ve bought a few lottery tickets in my life, but probably not more than a dozen times or so. I’ve always lived by the motto that I can’t lose if I don’t play. Besides, that kind of […]

We’re Getting Close

The wind was blowing so hard Friday night and yesterday morning that I’m surprised our motorhome didn’t set off seismographs in California! It never let up for hours, and you could almost get seasick just sitting still, the motorhome was rocking so hard. We decided that we were going to skip the Memorial Day parade […]

Bye Bye Hitch Itch!

We’re scratching our hitch itch, and it sure feels good! We’ve enjoyed the almost four months we’ve spent in Florida, but too much of it was spent sitting still, either at the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve, or at the Escapees Sumter Oaks campground. Both are nice places, but I tend to get bored seeing the […]

This is a special day for us, our fourteenth wedding anniversary. And I can tell you that we are even more in love today than we were when Terry and I said “I do.” Being married to your best friend in the world is a wonderful thing. Thanks for all you do, and for all […]
