Potpourri 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. Just a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’ll share, because I really don’t have anything else […]

We were up by 7:30 yesterday morning, ready to start our long trip east from not so sunny Arizona. It was another cold night, so cold that when I ran the living room slide in, big sheets of ice fell off the top of it. Hopefully now that I’ve left the state the snowbirds can […]

The sound of roaring race car engines woke us up the first morning of the new year. No, we had not mistakenly set up camp in the infield of a NASCAR track; there is a race track next to the Pima County Fairgrounds RV park and apparently they were doing time trials for most of […]

At the end of December every year WordPress sends out an annual report to bloggers, telling them how much traffic their blog received in the past 12 months, where those visitors came from, which blog posts received the most attention, and a lot of other interesting data. My report came in yesterday, and looking it […]

It sure feels good to be writing again. Anytime I’m away from it I realize how much I miss doing it. Except for my daily RV blog I have not had any time for writing the last few weeks, but I’m back at it and things are rolling right along. Friday I wrote 1,500 words […]

We were up about 7:30 yesterday, which is only about three hours earlier than usual for us, and after checking e-mail and relying to the most urgent, we started getting ready to leave the Pima County Fairgrounds RV Park. But since we only had 116 miles to go, we were in no hurry. It was […]

I apologize for forgetting to announce the winner of last week’s drawing for an audiobook of Jason Deas’ Birdsongs. We had 161 entries and John Huber was the lucky winner. Congratulations John, enjoy your audiobook. Stay tuned, because another contest starts tomorrow. I guess for every winner, life gives us some losers too. In Sunday’s […]

We left Santa Fe RV Park in Apache Junction about 10:30 yesterday morning and had an easy run on two lane roads through Florence and Catalina, arriving at the Pima County Fairgrounds RV park in Tucson a little before 1 p.m. We expected to have to settle for a 30 amp site, but lucked out […]

After three weeks in Tucson, we were ready for a change of scenery. So yesterday morning we fired up the Cummins diesel engine in our Winnebago and hit the road, headed for Yuma. It was close to 11 a.m. when we left the Pima County Fairgrounds RV park and even though morning rush hour was […]
