We Are Finished!

By shopping at used furniture and consignment stores, and on Craigslist, we were able to completely furnish our new home quicker than we thought, and considerably under the budget we had set. The only things we still were not happy with were the refrigerator and the electric range that came with the place. Both had […]

When you have been fulltiming as long as we have you pick up a trick or two along the way. One of them is to always carry a supply of wood. No, not for campfires. Fulltimers seldom have campfires. We are usually inside our homes at night, just like when we lived in a sticks […]

What’s better than having a wonderful dinner with friends, sharing lots of laughter, and forgetting all the cares of the world? Cuddling with a pretty lady, what else? Our friends Charles and Chris Yust hosted a wonderful Easter dinner for us and our pals Stu and Donna McNicol. You can bet that there was a […]

I finished my newest book, Big Lake Brewpub, yesterday afternoon and started giving it a read through, tweaking things here and there. I’ll finish with that today and then turn it over to Miss Terry for the first round of editing and proofing. When she is done with that I’ll make the necessary revisions and […]

I hear from people all the time who have a blog and want to make money from it, or have companies send them free products. I always tell them that, first of all you have to have the reader numbers and the track record to attract those businesses, but also, if you’re willing to plug […]

How Cold Is It?

The freezer in our new Samsung refrigerator is so cold that Terry can’t dish up ice cream until it sits out a few minutes! After years of soft ice cream that we had to eat fast or lose with our old Norcold, what a treat. Apparently the folks at Norcold are feeling the pressure from […]

Before I do anything else, I want to wish our dear friend Kathy Huggins happy birthday. We’re thrilled we get to spend part of your special day with you. Thursday night we got a telephone call from Home Depot saying that our new Samsung RF 18 refrigerator would be delivered yesterday between 11 a.m. and […]

Time Flies

Four years ago today we returned to our motorhome, which was parked at an RV repair shop, and came face to face with an armed burglar. It was a terrifying experience and one that taught us that complacency can get you killed in a hurry. I wrote about the incident in a blog post titled […]

Gas Attack!

No, I wasn’t suffering gastric distress, this is something else altogether. Even worse, if you can believe that. We spent yesterday getting our old RV refrigerator out of the motorhome. Or at least that was the plan. We made some headway, but no project ever goes as easily as planned, and we’re not quite there […]

Not Fun At All

We were hoping that our Norcold refrigerator would struggle along for just a couple more days, but when we woke up yesterday morning the thermometer inside the refrigerator said it was 62 degrees, and Terry could smell ammonia. So much for that idea. So we spent the day emptying out the Norcold and hauling food […]
