After all of the bad weather we had on Thursday, Friday dawned with blue skies and chilly temperatures. And wind. Lots of wind. But that’s okay, we weren’t driving an RV anywhere so we didn’t have to worry about that too much. It was a very busy day for us. It started out with somebody […]

Yesterday was the hottest day we’ve seen yet here at Elkhart Campground this year. I’m not sure where the thermometer topped out at, but twice during the day power went out in the whole area for a minute or so. I think everybody in northern Indiana was running every air conditioner they had, at full […]

With my new book finished, I’m already planning my next writing project and will be jumping headfirst into that soon. As for Big Lake Abduction, the one I finished on Tuesday evening, Miss Terry started proofreading it yesterday. She was laughing by the second page, so I hope that’s a good thing. I spent much […]

Yesterday was a much nicer day than the one before, lots of blue sky and in the mid-70s. So we decided to get out and have some fun. We made a stop at the post office to mail out a couple of orders, then drove about 20 miles south to Breezy Oaks Campground near Bushnell. […]

Terry and I spent the morning checking e-mail and doing some online chores yesterday, and I think I got five or six new pictures of oddball RVs for a future installment of the blog. Thanks everybody, keep them coming. During the afternoon, John and Kathy Huggins from Living The RV Dream, whose Fleetwood Expedition diesel […]

A nasty thunderstorm hit Elkhart yesterday afternoon, an hour or so before we were supposed to leave for our appointment at the Apple Store in Mishawaka. I was about to call and cancel the appointment, but Miss Terry checked the live weather radar map and it looked like it was a fast moving storm and […]

Well, is it over? Have we officially put the holidays behind us? Can life get back to normal now? Or at least whatever passes for normal with us? When I crunched the numbers yesterday, I was amazed at what my mystery novel, Big Lake, had done on Amazon. In December alone, the book sold 33,539 […]

A Cold And Busy Day

It was darned cold yesterday, but at least the rain has stopped, for now. I think winter is going to arrive early and be ugly this winter here in the Midwest. I made good on my word, and yesterday we slept in and got caught up on some of the sleep that we had missed […]

Yesterday we drove over to the Giant Center in Hershey to pick up our name tags and parking pass for the Hershey RV Show. It was a lesson in frustration. First, there had been some miscommunication about what the show expected from me, in terms of being a speaker, as well as our vendor booth. […]

There are a lot of reasons I think Al Gore needs a mouth transplant, and his theory of global warming is just one of them. Spend a day or two here in northern Indiana this time of year, and I bet you’ll agree that global warming is an urban legend. Damn, it’s cold! Our Winnebago […]
