After reading yesterday’s blog about how quickly we filled up our house and garage after living in a motorhome for so many years, somebody e-mailed me to say that human beings are hoarders by nature and it’s ingrained into our DNA. Hey, I guess that’s as good an excuse as any. We are about to […]

We Have Visitors!

A few days ago in a blog titled The Snowbirds Are Back, I shared a picture of a pair of ospreys that return to the same tree across the street from our house to nest every year. They can be noisy, but we always enjoy watching them as they raise their little ones and get […]

I have no idea how accurate it is, if at all, but yesterday someone told me about an app called We’re Related from Ancestry.com that is supposed to tell you the probability of any famous people you might be related to. Just for the heck of it, I gave it a try and was surprised […]

It took me a while to get back into my current work in progress, Big Lake Tragedy, but once I did it started rolling along very well. In the last three days I’ve done close to 8,000 words. So I was ready for a break yesterday, and when we found an exercise bike Terry was […]

Wouldn’t you know it? The temperatures here on the Florida coast have been in the mid-80s for over a week, and now that my cousin Berni Frees and her husband Rocky are visiting, a cold front has come through and dropped things down to 72° yesterday. Now, compared to the 18° they had back in […]

You all know what a good cook Miss Terry is, and our friend Jim Lewis is really enjoying all of her creations. For dinner Wednesday night, she made pizza from scratch (is there any other way?), and yesterday morning it was omelets for breakfast. I’ve known Jim for over 30 years, and I’ve never seen […]

Up Early And On The Go

Yesterday was a busy day that started way too early for us. Terry was up at 7:30, while I slept in an extra hour, and we were out the door by 9 o’clock. Our first stop was the small flea market in Oak Hill, just a few miles south of us. The neighbor who loaned […]

We Like Titusville

As I wrote a couple of days ago, Terry and I have long thought that if we ever hang up the keys, it might be in Titusville, Florida. And after spending several days in St. Augustine last week, we added it to our “possible” list when and if that day ever comes. However, while both […]

On our first visit to Titusville, three years ago, we heard about the American Police Hall Of Fame & Museum, and added a visit to it to our bucket list. We decided yesterday that it was about time we crossed that one off, because no matter how many neat places we visit, or how many […]
