Wicked Winds

When we lived in northern Arizona before we started fulltime RVing, strong winds were a fact of life in the springtime. Strong to the point of being dangerous. Anybody who has ever been caught on a highway in a sandstorm knows what I’m talking about. It’s bad enough in an automobile, but in an RV […]

In two days of writing, I’m somewhere over 5,000 words into my newest Big Lake mystery novel. I didn’t get anything done on it yesterday because we had some errands to run, but just because you’re running errands doesn’t mean you can’t have a good time, right? Our first stop of the day was at […]

With all the devastation caused by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma this year, a lot of RV snowbirds who had planned to winter in the Florida Keys or on the Texas Gulf Coast are finding themselves looking for someplace else to go. I’ve received a number of requests for suggestions on alternative snowbird roosts. The Florida […]

A couple of blog readers have asked me if PPL Motorhomes in Houston has finished with the sale of our Winnebago motorhome yet. You may remember that on Monday of last week, exactly two weeks after we dropped it off, they changed the online listing to Sale Pending. I waited a couple of days and […]

Florida Is Still Here

I have received quite a few e-mails from RV snowbirds wanting to know if I think they’ll be able to come to Florida for the winter as they had planned, due to the problems from Hurricane Irma. Yes, come on down. Florida is still here and open for business. While some areas got hit worse […]

According to the weatherman, the worst of the summer weather is behind us and we can expect to see a cooling trend in the next week or so. That doesn’t mean it’s going to be cool, it’s just going to be less hot. It will be down in the low to mid 80s until Wednesday […]

When Did That Happen?

We almost had a shooting at our house yesterday morning. I got up and stumbled in the bathroom half-asleep, flipped on the light, and there was some naked old pervert standing there staring at me. I’m glad I didn’t have my .45 in my hand, because Miss Terry said replacing that great big mirror would […]

In yesterday’s blog we did some time traveling as I told you about some of the things we did while we were in Alabama visiting my son Travis and his wife Geli as we were waiting out Hurricane Irma. Today I’ll catch you up on the rest of it, and on our trip home. Anybody […]

In yesterday’s blog I told you about coming home to the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, spending time in our Winnebago motorhome while we waited for the power to be restored, and showed you some photos of the damage in our little subdivision here on the Intercoastal Waterway in central Florida. Today we’re going to do […]

Thank you to all of you who have written, sent instant messages, texts, and left blog comments hoping we are safe and that our home made it through Hurricane Irma in one piece. Yes, to all of the above. In tomorrow’s blog I’ll probably tell you about the things that took place while we were […]
