In a blog post a couple of days ago titled What To Do? What To Do? I said I was trying to decide whether to buy my wife’s husband a Mustang fastback or a pontoon boat for Valentine’s Day. As an author, I know how important research is, so I went and drove a Mustang, […]

You all know what a loving and kind man I am, right? When it comes to the people I care about, my generosity knows no bounds. But I’ve been wrestling with something the last few days. I am trying to decide on a Valentine’s Day gift for my wife’s husband. And I think I’ve got […]

Do you remember when I said in yesterday’s blog that after I got my latest book, Big Lake Snowdaze, out how I planned to goof off for a couple of weeks? I’m not sure how that’s going to work out. As it turns out, I don’t do leisure well. Yesterday morning I gave the new […]

Way back in the middle part of the last century, I remember hearing some adults talking about a woman who they obviously were not pleased with. One of the ladies in the gossip circle said, “She’s nothing but a strumpet who likes playing around.” I was probably about five or six years old at the […]

Thank you to the many blog readers who responded to my story about the phantom power showing on the voltmeters in our Winnebago motorhome, even after I disconnected all the batteries while putting it in storage. Quite a few of you suggested that the small solar panel on the roof might be giving us the […]

We’ve been doing a lot of that since we got back home on Sunday afternoon. Catching up on email, catching up on blogs we have missed in the week we were on the road, catching up on laundry, and catching up on rest. And in today’s blog I will catch up on some things I […]

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 […]

My First In Florida

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 […]
