I Need A Day Off

Lately all I’ve been doing is running back and forth to doctor appointments and working on my new book, Big Lake Wedding. I need a day off to just go sit on the dock and watch the dolphins playing in the water and the manatee swimming by. Or better yet, to hop in my Mustang […]

Funny Mailboxes

We were always on the lookout for funny and oddball mailboxes as we traveled the country in our motorhome, and I’ve collected pictures of some interesting ones along the way. Some of my RVing friends have been generous enough to share the mailboxes they find in their travels, too. Seeing these, I think you will […]

I saw a news story the other day saying that many radio stations across the country have bowed to demands by the #Me Too movement not to play the Christmas classic song Baby, It’s Cold Outside, which has been a holiday favorite since 1944. According to those who object to the song, its lyrics encourage […]

Sad But Happy

Yesterday was a combination of sadness and happiness for us. Watching the news coverage of Hurricane Michael devastating the Florida Panhandle before moving into Georgia and causing even more damage was a terribly sad thing to see. Having dealt with two major hurricanes of our own in the last two years, we know the pain […]

No, there were no spaceships landing in our driveway in the last few days. We did have a visitor, but she didn’t come from that far away! Jill Baum used to work for my White Mountain Weekly newspaper back in Arizona about 24 years ago. We lost touch as time went on and she moved […]

Finally Got It Wet

Back in February I found the perfect pontoon boat for me, a 20 foot Bennington fishing model, with four fishing chairs, two in front and two in the rear, an L-shaped lounge, a pop up changing room, and a 70 horsepower Yamaha outboard motor. And the price was so good I just could not pass it […]

When we dropped our Winnebago off at PPL Motorhomes in Houston, Texas at the end of September, the rep who looked it over and did all of the consignment sale paperwork predicted it would sell within 45 days. 30 days later they took an offer on it and it was listed as Sale Pending. We […]

One of the most requested things people have asked for when they come to visit us here in Florida is to see an alligator in the wild. If you have not seen one of these big predators  who have not changed since prehistoric times, it’s quite a thrill. And we always know just the place to take people […]

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 […]

A Very Relaxing Day

Thank you to everybody who left comments, sent emails, or Facebook messages expressing concern about our unwelcome visitor Friday night. We are fine, just irritated by the fact that we have so many people like that in this world, running around bothering folks who are minding their own business and don’t want to be involved […]
