 We’ve been in a lot of campgrounds that have different kinds of entertainment over the years, including everything from bingo, to jam sessions, to movie nights. But my buddy Gary Greene, the manager of the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve, goes the extra mile and provides alligator wrestling! After a day out exploring with our friends Charles […]

My Powers Are Greater

Never underestimate the power of positive sniveling! I wrote in yesterday’s blog that the temperature here in central Florida had dropped into the mid-60s after our friends Charles and Chris Yust from C&C Insurance arrived. But Chris learned that my powers are greater than hers. I whined, I sniveled, yes, I threw a tantrum, and […]

For years I have had a reputation for bringing bad weather with me everywhere I go. A community could be in a year-long drought, but about the time I show up they get torrential rains. Folks can be planting their gardens on a sunny spring day when I pull into a campground, and the next […]

Yesterday was moving day for us, but it was a short trip of about 45 miles to the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve. We were up early and it didn’t take us all that long to get ready. We pulled out of Three Flags RV Resort about 9:25 and drove a couple of miles into Wildwood, […]

Making New Friends

It’s always fun to meet our readers and make new friends, and that’s just what we got to do yesterday. Sometime in the early afternoon there was a knock on our motorhome’s door and I opened it to find Terry and Diane Pyatt standing there. They introduced themselves and Terry said he is a devoted […]

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 […]

You can tell it’s mid-March in Florida because the crickets are chirping and the snowbirds are starting to make their migration back up north. Low fuel prices and cold weather in other parts of the country have made for full campgrounds here in the Sunbelt all winter. But in the last few days we’ve seen […]

There Must Be A Reason

There is an old saying that everything happens for a reason. I might add that sometimes you need to listen to reason. A few days ago I got an e-mail from a gentleman asking my advice about an RV purchase. He wants to buy a motorhome that he says is an excellent deal, $35,000 less […]

Shortest Move Ever

I’m not quite over my cold yet but I think I have pretty much the worst of it behind me, except for a nagging cough that doesn’t want to let go. But Terry’s a couple of days behind me in the cycle and feeling crappy. I spent most of yesterday working on the new issue of […]

Well, another year is here – 365 opportunities to smile, to love, to hope, to dream, to make amazing discoveries, and to live. I hope you do something great with the days ahead. There’s much more to life than ballgames and reality shows on the boob tube. How did you spend New Years Eve? At […]
