Oh, the joys of home ownership, whether your home sits on a foundation or on wheels. They say a boat is a hole in the water you throw money into, and an RV is a hole in the highway you throw money into. So then I guess a house must be a hole in the […]

That about sums it up for us right now. When the heck did moving become such a hard job? I mean, I know it was never easy, but this time around really seems to be kicking our butts. We ache in places where we didn’t even have places a week ago. We took a break […]

Miss Terry is a difficult woman to shop for because she doesn’t want very much in the way of material things. Whenever I ask her what she wants for Christmas, her birthday, our anniversary, or whatever, she always says she has everything she wants. Once in a while, she’ll let me buy her a bottle of […]

We are having a great time hanging out here at Nancy Kissack‘s place in Atwater, California. A couple of days ago we rebuilt four security light fixtures on the front of her garage and installed an automatic dusk till dawn switch for them. Not wanting to overstay our welcome and looking for something else we […]

Don’t Tell Anybody

Don’t tell anybody but I’ve been harboring a secret for a long time. I’m a fraud. I’ve made a career out of not knowing how to fix anything and relying on the kindness of strangers and Greg White, who is more than a little strange himself, whenever I need something fixed. But the truth is, […]

Before I do anything else, I want to wish our dear friend Kathy Huggins happy birthday. We’re thrilled we get to spend part of your special day with you. Thursday night we got a telephone call from Home Depot saying that our new Samsung RF 18 refrigerator would be delivered yesterday between 11 a.m. and […]

Thanks to everybody who posted comments on the blog or Facebook, or sent me e-mails with suggestions for a residential refrigerator to replace our fast failing Norcold RV refrigerator. Quite a few RVers said they swapped out their RV refrigerators for either Samsung RF197 units, which are no longer available, or Samsung RF18s, which replaced […]

Tool Time

Anybody who knows me well knows that I have absolutely no business messing around with tools. Not a wrench, not a screwdriver and heaven forbid not a saw! You know those tiny little screwdrivers that come with a couple of miniscule screws that people use to put their eyeglasses back together? We’d be better off […]

Mrs. Fix-It

Once, when I was a little guy (yes, I really was little once upon a time!), I borrowed my dad’s hammer and scrounged up some nails, and tried to build a clubhouse out of a few pieces of scrap lumber. I’m not sure I got even one nail driven all the way in without bending […]

We were up and out the door early yesterday morning, headed for Home Depot for more parts for the bathroom faucet project. I’m not sure why I was up so early, since Miss Terry and Greg were the ones working on the faucet. Sometimes I think they drag me along just for ballast. As I […]
