The one thing we miss most about the fulltime RV lifestyle is the many friends we made in our travels around the country. It was always fun to arrive at an RV park or rally and see people we knew and have the opportunity to reconnect with them. A few of our RVing buddies have […]

Note: Yesterday I told you the story of the brave Iowa pioneer boy Milton Lott. Here is another tale of a heroic young person from early Iowa. Both are from my book Highway History And Back Road Mystery II. In Boone County, Iowa we came across the story of Kate Shelley, a courageous teenager who […]

Note: This story is from my book Highway History And Back Road Mystery II. Alongside a back road a few miles west of Boone, Iowa we found the lonely grave of a young pioneer boy who met a tragic death, only the first in a violent series of atrocities that stretched over five years and […]

Yesterday Terry was supposed to have her first appointment for the hyperbaric oxygen therapy to hopefully help remedy the problems she has been suffering from due to the intense radiation she received when she had cancer years ago. We were told there would be 40 treatments, five days a week for anywhere from 90 minutes […]

Here’s another misadventure from the Nick Happens casefile. A few years ago we were hanging out at my friend John’s place when I pulled a stunt I don’t think I’ll ever live down. John is one of those up at the crack of dawn and get a day’s work done before noon kind of guys. […]

I worked pretty much nonstop from the time I got up yesterday until around 8:30 in the evening, finishing my newest book, Big Lake Wedding. Yes, Sheriff Jimmy and Robyn finally got to walk down the aisle. But it wasn’t without plenty of challenges thrown in on their way to holy matrimony. This is my […]

The weather here in Central Florida has been crazy. In the last week we’ve had overnight temperatures that dropped down into the upper 30s, and some days we had to wear jackets when we left the house. Other days, like yesterday, it was in the 80s and the air conditioner was running. I guess the […]

Thank a veteran. It’s that simple. Because every man and woman who ever stepped up and raise their right hand and took the oath and put on a uniform to serve this country has earned our support, our respect, and our undying gratitude. In a time when the country is divided in so many ways […]

I expected to set off some fireworks in yesterday’s blog about the woman being thrown out of the campground swimming pool because she had her two emotional support dogs in the water with her, and I wasn’t disappointed. And while most of the blog comments were positive, I did get hammered by email. One blog […]

I received an email yesterday from an irate woman who wanted me to help spread the word that a campground, whose name I won’t be mentioning here, threw her and her husband out “for no reason at all.” She said they have four Pomeranian dogs, of which two of them are his emotional support animals […]
