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 […]

Stay Away, Irma!

While folks in Texas and Louisiana are still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, here in Florida we are watching the Caribbean, where Hurricane Irma is making a path toward us. Or at least that’s one of the paths. If and where she will land in Florida is still in question. Here’s an idea; […]

Watching news coverage of the devastation along the Texas Gulf Coast from Hurricane Harvey is personal to us. Before we settled on Florida, we looked long and hard at the area around Rockport and Aransas Pass, which was in the predicted direct path of the hurricane’s landfall. They are charming little towns with lots of […]

Merry Christmas everybody! Wherever you are celebrating the holiday, whether it be home with family, at an RV park, or boondocking in the Arizona desert, Miss Terry and I want you to know that one of the greatest gifts we have ever received is your friendship and support. We have been keeping busy here in […]

One of our favorite things to do here is to take a slow drive through the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge seeing how many different animals we can spot, which can range from 50 or more varieties of birds to deer, raccoons and armadillos, and even bobcats and alligators. So yesterday we decided to take […]

When we first started spending our winters in Florida, even before we bought our house, people kept telling us about how bad this region was for hurricanes and asking us if we weren’t afraid of getting caught in one. No, not at all. In our 17+ years of fulltime RVing we dealt with tornadoes, wildfires, […]

One Bite At A Time

How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. It’s the only way to get the job done. Just like you write a book one word at a time, or move into a house one box at a time. You just start at it and you keep on going until the job is […]

Today Is The Day!

We closed on our house on the 17th, but because Hurricane Matthew had delayed everything in the area, the people we bought it from were not able to close and move into their new place on schedule. So we told them that rather than move all of their things into a storage locker and pay […]

We will begin moving into our new home on Friday, and in the meantime we are keeping ourselves busy to help the time go faster. On Saturday we drove to the small town of De Land, about half an hour from here, to visit a couple of used furniture stores. We have already been making […]

We won’t be moving into our new house for a few days yet because the previous owners had a delay in closing on their new home due to Hurricane Matthew. Rather than have them move everything into a storage unit, and then have to move it a second time, we told them we were no […]
