Well, thanks to the wonders of pharmaceuticals I’m at least able to write a blog for today. As Greg White posted for me yesterday, after checking me over on Monday the chiropractor was afraid to do any adjustments because she suspected my problem might be a kidney stone. She advised me to go to an […]

Is there anybody who doesn’t love old lighthouses? I know we can’t drive past one without stopping! One of our favorites is Cape Blanco Lighthouse, which stands on a rugged cliff, 245 feet above the ocean, on the western-most point in Oregon. Commissioned in 1870, Cape Blanco is the oldest continuously operating lighthouse on Oregon’s […]

Is there anyone out there who hasn’t seen at least one of the Rambo movies? A generation of American males grew up thinking John Rambo was about the baddest of the bad. But as it turns out, Rambo was a wuss. I know, because  I saw some guys yesterday that would make Rambo wet his […]

Can you believe it’s the last day of the year already? I am amazed at how quickly 2017 went by. They say that time goes fast when you’re having fun, and we sure have had a lot of that. Of course, they also say that time speeds up as you get older, and there’s no […]

Scammers and con artists seem to be out in force this holiday season and every time I turn around I hear about a new one. Folks, you can never be too vigilant. When someone starts giving you a line of crap, listen to that little voice in your head, not to their spiel. I got an […]

I’ve been working hard to make the final corrections to my new Big Lake book, so instead of boring you with the details of that, today I thought I’d share some RV quick fix products that we find useful and can come in handy in many ways. Back at Thanksgiving I told you about a […]

Once in a while people ask me if I really do get all of the e-mails I occasionally share with blog readers because it’s hard to believe people could be that: A. Dumb, B. Naive, C. Clueless, or D. All of the above. But something I learned early on in my career publishing small town […]

While I was working my way through yesterday’s e-mail, deleting all of the warnings from the IRS and Windows, and three different banks where I don’t have accounts, all wanting me to click some link to save myself from disaster, along with four messages from women in other countries who want to come to America […]

I was hoping we might get to do some kayaking yesterday, but I had some errands to run in the morning, and by the afternoon the wind had kicked up pretty stiffly again. So it looks like we probably won’t get a chance now until sometime around the weekend, since we are supposed to have […]
