Thank you to everybody who purchased a copy of my new book, Big Lake Celebration, told their family and friends about it, and shared links on Facebook. It’s off to a very good start. Just six hours after it went live on Sunday evening it was ranked #5,088 on Amazon, and by yesterday afternoon it […]

Hurry Up And Wait

After pushing hard to cover the 1,050 miles between Mission, Texas and Tucson, Arizona, I made it to the V.A. hospital yesterday only to spend four hours getting almost nothing accomplished. Hurry up and wait. I had to go to the lab and get blood work done before anything else could happen, and the place […]

Okay, I’ll admit it! I’m still not wild about Mission, Texas and the Rio Grande Valley, but I will admit we’ve really been eating well in the three days we have been here! Our friends Ron and Brenda Speidel took us to a wonderful Chinese buffet with a hibachi grill called, appropriately enough, the Hibachi […]

Whether you’re Christian, Jewish, Hindu, agnostic or atheist, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, or whatever else gets the message across that I hope you have a wonderful day, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing.

One lady said “I don’t […]

We have been having a lot of fun here in Muskegon, Michigan with Berni and Rocky Frees. It is amazing how we can be apart from those two for a year, and the minute we get back together, the fun picks back up right where we left off. Yesterday they both had to work, so […]

Every RVer is different. Some of us like motorhomes, and some like trailers. Some of us like to move around from place to place, seldom staying longer than a week in any location, while others like to “put down roots,” and often stay several months at a time in one place. There are those of […]

All fulltime RVers have experienced it. We will be talking to somebody about our life on the road, and invariably they will ask us where our favorite place in the country is. We always reply that just as we could not choose which one of our children is our favorite, it would be just as […]

I spent most of yesterday working on a website for Carlyle Lehman at Focal Wood Products. Many people are surprised to learn that while the Amish people live a much simpler lifestyle than most of us, with their horses and buggies, they do in fact make use of many modern conveniences, including telephones, electricity, and […]
