Even though our life on wheels seems like a permanent vacation, every once in a while we want a break from the routine. So we’re going on vacation this weekend. We’re going to Muskegon, Michigan to hang out with my cousin Berni Frees and her hubby Rocky for a couple of days. They are two […]

It rained hard all of Tuesday night, sometimes just a light tapping on our motorhome’s roof and other times a downpour loud enough to wake the dead. When we woke up yesterday there were puddles of water everywhere around us, but the folks who had been parked next to us in a fifth wheel were […]

Yesterday morning started out with a phone call from Greg White asking if we wanted to go for a walk around Elkhart Campground with him and Jan. The full loop around the place is almost exactly one half mile and Lord knows I need the exercise. But it was only 10 a.m., which is barely […]

We were so worn out from being up early three days in a row that I set yesterday’s blog to automatically post at midnight and we were in bed by 11:30 Monday night. And even though we slept well in spite of a heavy downpour sometime in the night, we were still tired when we […]

Yesterday was the first day of the Escapees 54th Escapade rally here at the fairgrounds in Goshen, Indiana and it was a busy day. We were up by 7 a.m. and in our vendor booth before 9, ready to do business as the crowds started flocking in. And flock they did. There were very few […]

Bob and Gita Patel, owners of Elkhart Campground, love it when a big rally comes to the fairgrounds in Goshen, some 30 miles south of here. Being the largest and best campground in the area, many RVers come here first to hang out for a week or two before a rally starts, and a lot […]

A little after eight yesterday morning a farrier came over to trim the horses hooves, and even though it was at least two hours before my normal wakeup time, I was out of bed and ready to watch. I mean, how many times do you get the opportunity to see a pony pedicure? We have […]

I want to start the day by wishing my daughter Tiffany happy birthday. Wow, was it really 32 years ago I first held that beautiful little girl? Where did the years go? Today she’s a grown lady with kids of her own. But you know what? Dad still loves holding her. Tiffany, I love you […]

Whatever the bug is that is going around hits you hard and lays you low for about 36 hours and then you start feeling almost human again. And not a minute too soon! I’m sure glad that’s over. Apparently we weren’t the only ones suffering from the crud. Blog reader Denise Gray e-mailed me to […]
