I had another rough night Monday night, so when we got out of bed at 7:30 yesterday morning I wasn’t ready to start the day. But we had to get some miles put behind us, so I only sniveled a little bit as I got dressed and we started getting ready to hit the road. […]

Something In The Air

There is something in the air here at Long Beach, Washington that is putting a smile on everybody’s lips, and there is laughter everywhere you go. It’s kites! Hundreds and hundreds of colorful kites.   Big kites, small kites, kites that go so fast that they make the air buzz, and kites that float lazily […]

Yesterday morning we set what is absolutely a new record for us for getting on the road in the morning, and it sucked. I never want to do that again! Monday night we turned off the bedroom TV at 12:30, which is early for us, because we wanted to get an early start on our […]

Caution, flying sport kites is contagious and can be highly addictive. I know, because two years ago I did not own a kite, and then we went to the Washington State International Kite Festival in Long Beach and a fellow let me fly his dual line Prism Snapshot 1.9 speed foil. It took all of […]

If we look like we are sporting nice suntans the next time you see us, take a closer look because it’s not what it seems. What you are actually seeing is rust. Yeah, it rained that much yesterday. The storm that has been raging across the country had lost a lot of its momentum by […]

Most of the folks from the dog show have left the Pima County Fairgrounds and it’s a lot quieter here. The last two mornings the only thing that woke me up was my own snoring. Miss Terry says she doesn’t know which is worse. But the dogs have been replaced by new critters. Last night […]

Two Lanes To Tucson

For some reason that we have never been able to figure out, but that many other RVers say happens to them as well, we seldom sleep well the night before we travel. Even if it’s a relatively short trip like our 122 mile drive from Apache Junction to Tucson yesterday. We turned in earlier than […]

Company And Fish

They say that company and fish start to smell after three days and it’s time to move on. I’m not sure if that applies when you’re staying in your RV and especially not when the weather is unsafe to travel, but we’ve been parked at my daughter Tiffany’s house in Taylor, Arizona for a week […]
