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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
