Well, I Did It!

Okay, call me a liar. I said I wasn’t going to do it, and I really meant it. I had no intention of going into any big box store until after the holidays. I don’t tolerate the crowds very well and the commercialism turns me off. But I did it. At least I’ve got a […]

One of the things that really sold us on our house is that the little manufactured home community we live in has its own private 300 foot fishing pier on the Indian River, along with a private boat launch. But we’ve been here over a month, and except for one quick adventure dipping shrimp with […]

Up Early And On The Go

Yesterday was a busy day that started way too early for us. Terry was up at 7:30, while I slept in an extra hour, and we were out the door by 9 o’clock. Our first stop was the small flea market in Oak Hill, just a few miles south of us. The neighbor who loaned […]

Please watch where you’re walking around us for a while, will you? Because mine and Miss Terry’s butts are dragging and I wouldn’t want you to step on them. With my dad’s work when I was a kid, and later my time in the military and living in different places around the country afterward, I […]

Terry and I both want to thank everybody for all of your well wishes following our announcement yesterday that we have purchased a place to be our winter base and someday retirement home here in Florida. You really have made us feel very special and very loved. A lot of you had questions, and I […]

Thank you everybody for the birthday wishes yesterday! I tried to reply to everyone individually, but there were nearly 600 on Facebook, not to mention over 100 e-mails. I would have to hire an assistant to get to everybody. You all really made me feel very special. So how did I spend my birthday? Dinner […]

No Love For These Bugs

When we pulled into Allatoona Landing Marina Resort Sunday evening to get off the road and out of the rain, I had no idea how big this huge body of water actually is. Lake Allatoona has over 12,000 surface acres and is a popular recreation spot for folks all over north Georgia and southern Tennessee. […]

It’s been a busy weekend here at Elkhart Campground. The IRV2 rally is going on this week and the place is packed. I wanted to give them some door prizes for the rally, but I wasn’t able to find anybody who knew who was in charge of anything. I’ll probably go to the office today […]

If you are history nuts like we are, what’s better than going to see a 275 year old fort? How about going to see a 275 year old fort and getting a free pontoon boat ride in the process? I love my job! The rain came down all night Tuesday night but yesterday dawned with […]

Okay, actually it was a big pair of vise grips, but it did the job, so who’s keeping score? I’ve been trying to track down the source of our intermittent electrical problem and had pretty much narrowed it down to our inverter. We have good strong power coming into the coach, so it’s not the […]
