One year ago today we were scrambling, trying to find a flight on a holiday weekend to take us to Arizona, where my daughter Tiffany had collapsed and gone into full code cardiac arrest. The paramedics got her heart started again and transported her to the hospital, where she coded again. They were able to […]

When we were searching for our retirement home, we knew it had to be in a community located close to the beach. The beach is our place to go and let our souls relax from the cares of the world. It has a calming effect on both Terry and me like no place else. Plus, […]

It is amazing to me how much better I’m feeling after a couple of weeks worth of visits to the chiropractor three times a week. I can’t say enough good about Dr. Thomas and the rest of the staff at Coastal Integrative Healthcare in New Smyrna Beach. Two weeks ago I was seriously considering back […]

Yesterday was a busy day for us. I had a 2 PM appointment at the dealership in Daytona Beach where we bought our Chrysler Pacifica back in June for two recalls. One was to download a change in the computer software to fix a flaw in a sending unit, and the other was to replace […]

With the new issue of the Gypsy Journal finished and sent out to our subscribers, except for logging in the renewals that came in by email, yesterday was a play day for me. Yes, I actually did get away from my desk for a while! My buddy Jim Lewis came by and we played two […]

Our friend Jim Lewis has been staying with us for the last few weeks while he closed on his house and bought furniture and things he would be needing. Now he’s all moved in and this big old place of our seems a little empty. Some people said they couldn’t handle having company for that […]

I Got My Play Day!

Never underestimate the power of positive sniveling. I wrote in yesterday’s blog that I had been chained to my desk cranking out words in my next John Lee Quarrels mystery novel and that I needed a break. That’s kind of how we do things; we work hard for a few days, and then we’ll take […]

When we called Lowe’s last week to report that the oven light in Terry’s new Samsung stove had gone out the second time she used it, they said they would send a repairman out on Friday. But Thursday afternoon he called to say that there was a scheduling conflict and he wouldn’t be here until […]

I owe my buddy Jim Lewis a huge thank you. He has saved me a lot of aggravation. I wrote in a blog a few days ago that we went to the Verizon store in Daytona Beach so Jim could upgrade his phone, and while he was there they told us about this great deal […]
