We spent yesterday getting a lot of little chores done around the house that we wanted to have out of the way before we start prepping the motorhome for traveling. For some reason, the night before, my phone kept chirping with notifications of emails and messages received, to the point where I finally turned it […]

It was great having my son Travis and his wife Geli here for a few days visiting us. We had a wonderful time showing them around the area and just hanging out here at the house spending time together. They left yesterday morning, headed back to their home in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and we look forward […]

It seemed like every day for the last week or two the weatherman has been predicting rain for our area. And though there has been some rain come down around us, all we have had here is a brief shower or two that lasted for a couple of minutes. But that all changed yesterday. A […]

Something I learned early in my Army days was that you can plan an operation down to the last detail and spend weeks talking strategy, but it can all go out the window the minute you put boots on the ground. That’s why you should always have a Plan B. And it doesn’t hurt to […]

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there. If you don’t do anything else today, be sure to tell your mom you love her. Mine has been gone a very long time and I wish she were still here so I could say those words to her. Here is a picture of Terry’s mom, […]

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 […]

In a blog post a couple of weeks ago I managed to offend somebody from Roswell, New Mexico in my response to someone who asked if we had ever been to Roswell, and if we thought it was worth the trip. I replied that I’ve always believed that if the whole spaceship crashing thing is […]

Before I do anything else today, I want to wish my granddaughter Destiny happy birthday. Grandpa and Grandma Terry miss you sweetheart, but we will be seeing you again soon. So save up lots of hugs and kisses for us. Thank you to the people who posted comments or sent emails in response to yesterday’s […]

I worked late on Tuesday night, trying to get as much done in my new book as I could. Of course, when I work that late I can’t just flip a switch and turn it off and fall asleep. It takes a while for my mind to unwind and relax. So it was sometime after […]

Timing Is Everything

They say that timing is everything, and I think there’s a lot of truth to that. Did you ever stop to think about how things happen, or don’t happen, just because the timing is or isn’t right? What if you had left the house five minutes earlier? Would you have been in the middle of […]
