After reading yesterday’s blog in which I said we needed to run into New Smyrna Beach to get the registrations renewed on our vehicles, three blog readers left comments or sent me emails asking why I didn’t just do it online, which would be quicker and more convenient. When we changed our official domicile from […]

We love our home here on Florida’s central coast. We really do. We’ve got plenty of room for all of our activities, from Terry’s huge weaving room to my snug little office, a garage that is large enough to hold all of our toys and then some, and we are just minutes from the beach. […]

My new book, Big Lake Tragedy, has been through two proofreaders now, with one more to go. So it won’t be long now, folks! I don’t know about you, but I’m getting excited. Since we have been pretty much confined to the house while I was working on the new book, we decided to take […]

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog. This is the third in a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t […]

Before I do anything else today, I want to wish my son Travis happy birthday. I’m sorry we can’t be there to spend the day together, but it was great seeing you and Geli last week. Happy birthday, Travis. I love you and I am very, very proud of you. I was a single dad, […]

With my appointment with my new primary care provider at the Daytona Beach VA Medical Clinic out of the way yesterday, we are good to go on our summer travels. I didn’t expect any problems, but wasn’t sure if she would want to schedule me for any follow-up tests related to my medical issues a […]

Terry and I are getting excited because in only one more day, we have company coming. And not just any company, but my son Travis and his beautiful wife Geli. They are leaving their home in Tuscaloosa, Alabama this afternoon and plan to drive south to somewhere around Tallahassee, Florida before they stop for the […]

I was a little surprised when I got an email and blog comment from someone accusing me of being insensitive to African-Americans because of yesterday’s blog, In Search Of Aunt Jemima. But then, I guess I shouldn’t have been because I know some people wake up in the morning looking for some reason to be […]

The Internet is a powerful tool. Simply by logging online, you can research just about anything and everything in the world. Want to know what a harmonic balancer is? We needed to know yesterday because the one in Jim’s Kia Sorrento went out, so we Googled it. Do you want to know when the next […]

And it’s the best kind of company there is! My cousin Berni Frees and her husband Rocky are two of our favorite people in the world, and we always love spending time with them when we visit them at their home in Muskegon, Michigan. They decided it was time to get out of the 18° […]
