Back in February I found the perfect pontoon boat for me, a 20 foot Bennington fishing model, with four fishing chairs, two in front and two in the rear, an L-shaped lounge, a pop up changing room, and a 70 horsepower Yamaha outboard motor. And the price was so good I just could not pass it […]

Is there anyone who doesn’t love the old Otis Redding classic song (Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay? I know I’ve tapped my feet to it a few thousand times in my life. Did you know that it was recorded by Redding just days before his death in an airplane crash in 1967? The […]

You all know what a loving and kind man I am, right? When it comes to the people I care about, my generosity knows no bounds. But I’ve been wrestling with something the last few days. I am trying to decide on a Valentine’s Day gift for my wife’s husband. And I think I’ve got […]

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 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 […]

This is the fourth collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t have anything else to talk about today. In case you didn’t know, potpourri is defined as 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous […]

I was a little surprised when I got an email and blog comment from someone accusing me of being insensitive to African-Americans because of yesterday’s blog, In Search Of Aunt Jemima. But then, I guess I shouldn’t have been because I know some people wake up in the morning looking for some reason to be […]

The other day our friend Jim Lewis showed up at the house with two sets of Mighty Bite fishing lures that he had just gotten in the mail. Jim said according to the infomercial he had watched, these things are surefire fish killers, so he bought a set for him and one for us. Looking […]

They say all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. I don’t know about Jack, but I do know that all work and no play makes a Nick grumpy man. And since I’ve been spending a lot of time writing the last few days, I really needed a play day. So a little […]

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 […]
