Miss Terry and my other proofreaders all went the extra mile, like they always do, and finished with my latest book, Strawberry Slugbug, Monday evening. So yesterday I went through the manuscript making their corrections and getting it formatted to publish. It’s always a crap shoot as to how long Amazon’s Kindle publishing program takes […]

Yeah, that’s what I’ve been doing. And no, Santa Claus is not coming to town. Better than that, it’s another jolly chubby guy with a beard. And this one can fix things! Our friends Greg and Jan White will be here next week and we are really looking forward to seeing them because it’s been […]

Really? A Play Date?

I know I’m showing my age here, but I have to ask. What the hell is a play date? And why do kids need them? I had never heard of a play date until the last few years. If we had play dates when I was a kid, it consisted of all the mothers in […]

Okay, I have sat here quietly doing my thing for months now and I haven’t whined or sniveled once about the weather. But I’ve about reached my limit with it. I really, really wish it would start cooling down. Instead, in the last week the temperature has gotten even hotter, hovering at and even exceeding […]

Nothing Happening Here

I keep hearing from people asking us if we are safe and out of harm’s way from Hurricane Florence. Thank you for your concern, and yes, we are fine. The hurricane made landfall about 550 miles north of us, so except for some high surf it was a nonevent for us. We didn’t even get […]

Not My Kids

I was surprised by the number of responses I got to yesterday’s blog telling me that we needed to make our freeloading kid move out of our house. I guess people didn’t read that blog entry very well. I had written about one of my readers saying that they had let a relative rent their […]

Is It Monday?

For some reason it seemed like a very long weekend to both of us, and more than once we found ourselves checking our cell phones for the date or asking each other what day it was. I guess that’s one of the great things about being semi-retired. Except for the occasional doctor’s appointment, we don’t […]

I Spoke Too Soon

In my last blog I said that after a couple of trips to the chiropractor my back was feeling much better. At the time I wrote that, it was the truth. But apparently I spoke too soon. I posted the blog a little before 1 AM our time, then went to bed. Sometime around 3 […]

Fuzzy But Functional

Thank you to everybody who left blog comments and sent emails or messages about the return of my back problems. I had a rough night and woke up yesterday morning about 8 AM with the pain back in full force. I really don’t like to take heavy-duty pain meds, but every medical person I know […]

We were up early yesterday morning because I had an appointment at the VA Medical Center in Daytona Beach for something called a field of vision test. I have rather large and abnormally shaped eyes, and every time I get an eye exam, when they do a pressure test they tell me they think I […]
