Oh, the joys of home ownership, whether your home sits on a foundation or on wheels. They say a boat is a hole in the water you throw money into, and an RV is a hole in the highway you throw money into. So then I guess a house must be a hole in the […]

Miss Terry is a difficult woman to shop for because she doesn’t want very much in the way of material things. Whenever I ask her what she wants for Christmas, her birthday, our anniversary, or whatever, she always says she has everything she wants. Once in a while, she’ll let me buy her a bottle of […]

We are having a great time hanging out here at Nancy Kissack‘s place in Atwater, California. A couple of days ago we rebuilt four security light fixtures on the front of her garage and installed an automatic dusk till dawn switch for them. Not wanting to overstay our welcome and looking for something else we […]

Anybody who knows me well knows that I have absolutely no business messing around with tools. Not a wrench, not a screwdriver and heaven forbid not a saw!

After a chilly night in the parking lot of the Wal-Mart in Gallipolis, Ohio, we were up bright and early yesterday morning. There were several things we wanted to see locally, so I went inside the store and obtained permission to leave our motorhome there for a couple of hours while we went exploring in […]

Miss Terry has wanted to use her Orion smoker for months now, but we just never seemed to have the time. That all ended yesterday when she smoked up three huge racks of ribs for a cookout with Rocky and Berni Frees. We got the smoker at Lowes about a year ago, but this was […]

A few days ago I posted a blog with photos of RVs damaged by a tornado that hit the NACO Natchez Trace campground near Hohenwald, Tennessee. That wasn’t Mother Nature’s only assault on the RV world lately. On Friday another nasty storm, accompanied by a tornado, tore through Saint Francois State Park near Bonne Terre, […]
