Well, my buddy Greg White can no longer call my boat a hangar queen. I bought the Key Largo back in early December, but then between having a house guest for a couple of weeks, finishing up my new book, Big Lake Celebration, and getting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal out, it’s been sitting […]

I have been busy writing and doing things around the house the last couple of days, so yesterday it was time for a change of pace. After a leisurely breakfast and visiting with our houseguest, Jim Lewis, here at home for a while, we decided to take a ride and show him around the area […]

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 […]

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 […]

The title of this blog is also the title of my favorite Jimmy Buffett song, which he wrote after his first visit to Key West, Florida. If you have never listened to it before, check it out at this YouTube link. Miss Terry and I can relate to that song today. As most of you […]

Our month at the Daytona Beach RV Resort in Port Orange, Florida is up and it’s time to move on down the road. Or up the road, actually. And probably just in time, since it’s been getting warmer every week. Today we will have an easy run of just 60 miles to the Elks lodge […]

A lot of readers are asking me when my next Big Lake book will be out. I learned a long time ago to never give a definite date, because when I do, something always seems to get in the way and throw me off schedule. But I got another 3,500 words or so in yesterday […]

We are not ready to stop traveling yet, and probably never will be, as long as our health allows. But after almost 17 years of fulltime RVing we are slowing down. We like being at Point A and Point B and Point C, but we find we are not enjoying the trips between those places […]

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 […]

In Saturday’s blog, I mentioned that I had never seen an alligator in the wild. Always ready to offer suggestions and ideas, a lot of readers either posted comments or sent e-mails giving me tips on places where I could expect to find an alligator. Several of you recommended the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, […]
