Today is my buddy Greg White’s birthday. I don’t know exactly how old he is, but I do believe he sat next to Moses in grade school, and when I wrote about building an ark the other day, he sent me pictures of one he helped a guy named Noah put together. Actually I think […]

No, that’s not a reference to my sex life. Blue Ball and Intercourse are two communities in Lancaster County, the heart of the Pennsylvania Dutch country. I needed a break from working on the paper and it had finally stopped raining, so we spent yesterday playing tourist with Greg and Jan. Our first stop was […]

I Need An Ark

It started raining hard late Monday night and never stopped coming down all day yesterday. Not just a rain, but a real gully washer, the kind that drowns frogs and floats boats. The kind that makes a man think he really should be building an ark. It was a good day to stay home and […]

How can it be October already? Where the heck did the summer go? I want a do-over! My parents always used to say that the older you get, the faster time goes. I never understood that when I was a kid, but I sure do now! Sometimes I want to just stop time, or at […]

I Was Wrong

Yes, I was wrong. No need to note that on your calendar or anything like that; I’m wrong a lot of the time. This was just one more instance. I wrote in yesterday’s blog that the Pennsylvania Turnpike was one of the worst stretches of road in the country, and based upon past experience, that […]

We only have a couple of days here in Gettysburg, and we had planned to spend yesterday playing tourist. There is so much to see and do here that we could never cover it all, but we had hoped to at least get to the new National Parks Visitor Center. But things didn’t go exactly […]

Yesterday we spent part of the day unloading all of the stuff from our van that we used at the Hershey RV Show, and repacking it into the storage bays of our motorhome. It was a hot, humid day, and by the time we got done, we were both wringing wet. Back inside our Winnebago, […]

Valley Forge

Yesterday we drove 75 miles to Valley Forge National Historical Park, where the Continental Army, under George Washington, spent the hard winter of 1777-1778 during the American Revolution. Being history nuts, this was a real treat for us, and we enjoyed immersing ourselves in this shrine to American liberty. We also learned a lot that […]

A Lazy Day

Yesterday was a much needed lazy day for us, after our week at the RV show. We slept in, then didn’t do much of anything all day long. Terry did a couple of loads of laundry, we checked e-mail, cruised the internet, watched TV, and I napped for a while on the couch.  We needed […]

The Hershey RV Show finally ended yesterday, and it was the longest week of our lives. We are so glad that it is over! We have worked a lot of RV rallies over the years, but this was our first RV show. I’m pretty sure it will be our last, too. The good news is […]
