No, I haven’t been a very bad boy who deserves punishment. Well, at least, no worse than normal. And no, Miss Terry and I have not been doing anything kinky involving whips and things like that. I’m talking about paddling our Sea Eagle kayaks. One of the things that sold us on our house is […]

Though you might think of Florida in terms of manufactured home parks, gated age 55+ communities, endless shopping malls, and Disney, once you get just a short distance away from all of that the state is also home to a tremendous variety of wildlife. And I’m not just talking about mosquitoes and alligators. We have […]

We may have a boat and fishing equipment, and our house may only be 800 yards from the Indian River section of the Intercoastal Waterway, but yesterday it was too darned cold even think about casting a line. So instead Miss Terry decided to tackle a project she’s been wanting to get done. We wanted […]

One of the things that really sold us on our house is that the little manufactured home community we live in has its own private 300 foot fishing pier on the Indian River, along with a private boat launch. But we’ve been here over a month, and except for one quick adventure dipping shrimp with […]

Yesterday was a busy day that started way too early for us. Terry was up at 7:30, while I slept in an extra hour, and we were out the door by 9 o’clock. Our first stop was the small flea market in Oak Hill, just a few miles south of us. The neighbor who loaned […]

One of the things that sold us on our house, besides the big room for Terry’s looms and the huge garage, was the 300 foot long private fishing pier on the Indian River, which is just 800 yards from our front door. The pier is lighted, has some nice benches and fishing stations, and even […]

And so did Miss Terry. I haven’t asked Ron Speidel yet, but that’s two to one, so the majority wins anyway. What the heck am I talking about? Boats. A couple of times I have said that if we ever hang up the keys or buy a winter place in Florida, I would get a […]

Yesterday was strange. We started the morning with our basement air conditioner on, and by the end of the night, we had our furnace on. Yes indeed, it’s official, Nick’s in Florida! 🙂 The more time we spend here  in Titusville, the more we like it. We are not close to being ready to get […]

Yesterday our friends Tim and Ann Moran played tour guide, showing us around Merritt Island and Cocoa Beach, Florida. Usually when we are visiting a new area, Terry or I are driving, so it was a real treat to just sit back and watch the scenery and not have to worry about traffic. We saw […]
