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 […]

Dismay In Santa Fe

I have to stop going to places they write songs about. I’m always disappointed. Jimmy Buffett painted a marvelous picture of sundrenched life in Key West with his classic Margaritaville, but the reality is that the island at the end of the road is crowded, over-commercialized, and all about separating tourists from the almighty buck. […]

Now, call me a grouchy old fart if you will, but I’ve always believed that my rights stop where yours begin, and vice versa. So I was a bit perturbed at 8:30 yesterday morning when the fellow across from us here in the campground decided to entertain everybody with a concert of hymns and Christmas […]

Somebody once accused us of being codependent because usually if you see Miss Terry, you’ll see me too. We really do enjoy spending time together, no matter what we are doing. Besides being very happily married, we truly like each other and are also very close friends. In fact, we were friends long before romance […]

Do you remember a couple months ago when the talking heads on television were predicting $5 a gallon gas this summer, and everybody was changing their traveling plans or talking about selling their RVs and getting off the road? Guess what? It didn’t happen! In fact, in most places both gas and diesel are at […]

It rained hard most of Thursday night and I expected yesterday to be a washout, literally. As it turns out, even though there was a heavy overcast most of the day, it was warm. Warm and humid, to be exact. But since we are leaving tomorrow, we wanted to do a little bit of sightseeing […]

Me And Jimmy B.

My head hurts, my feet stink, and I don’t love Jesus. That’s the title of a song by Jimmy Buffett, arguably the best singer-songwriter in the world, in my humble opinion. After wandering around the Webster Flea Market half the day yesterday, I know exactly how Jimmy B feels, or least two thirds of it. […]

The other day I wrote a blog about Tech Toys For Gadget Boys, suggesting some neat high tech things that would make great Christmas gifts. Yesterday a blog reader told me that I either had to stop writing blogs like that or she had to stop reading, because thanks to me, she has a Kindle, […]

Yesterday afternoon, we were out playing tourist again with Greg and Jan White. We’ve had a lot of fun hanging out with them, and because Greg has been doing all of the driving, I get to see a lot more than I do when I’m behind the wheel. All four of us are big fans […]

Of all of the places I don’t want to be, anywhere it is cold and snowing is at the very top of my list. Stuck in a traffic jam? Mere child’s play. Sitting in a dentist’s chair getting a root canal? I can handle it. Dinner with my ex-mother-in-law? Bring it on and give me […]
