Sometimes part of my job is bursting somebody’s bubble. I really don’t like doing it, but I guess somebody has to. One such example was an e-mail I received the other day from a very nice couple who have been reading the blog for a long time. They are weekend campers and have a pop-up […]

Thank you to everybody who sent messages or emails expressing concern about Terry falling off of her bicycle, which I wrote about in Wednesday’s blog. She is still a little stiff and has some bruises, but otherwise she is fine and looking forward to taking it for a ride as soon as she loosens up […]

Not Just By E-mail

Before I do anything else today, I want to wish Terry’s mother happy birthday. I’m not sure my mother-in-law always knows how to take me, but she has let her daughter hang out with me for the last 19 years so I guess I must be doing something right. Happy birthday, Bess! We love you. […]

I have been doing a lot of writing lately and I was hoping to get out and goof off today but it looks like that may not happen. A major cold front is coming through central Florida today and the weatherman is predicting a lot of stormy weather. The news said that we can expect […]

People who have not spent much time here during the winter may think that Florida is warm year-round, but that’s not necessarily so! We had a cold front come through this weekend, dropping temperatures down into the low 50s during the daytime into the 30s at night, with a lot of wind accompanying it. Of […]

Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I used to go to family reunions just to pick up girls. But hey, if it happens it happens, right? I know, you’re asking yourself what the heck this has to do with RVing but trust me, I’ll get there. And even if I don’t, remember that […]

I got a lot of very good response to yesterday’s blog post, If I Had It To Do Over. Thank you to everybody who posted comments in the blog, sent me emails, or messages through Facebook about it. It always makes me feel good when I know I’m helping other people out, and hopefully helping […]

If I Had It To Do Over

How many times have you heard someone say, “If I had it to do over, I sure would do things differently.” Yes, hindsight is always 20/20, but we make our choices and live with them. If they turn out not to be the best choices, hopefully we learn from them. My father used to always […]

Just In Time!

We decided it was time for another road trip yesterday, so we left the Daytona Beach RV Resort about 10 AM, ran a couple of errands, and then drove down to New Smyrna Beach. This is fast becoming one of our favorite towns in Florida. We spent a while browsing in some shops, drove across […]

Okay, So I Lied!

Those four words above, the title to today’s blog, they are the reason I can never run for any kind of elected office. I mean, after all, have you ever heard any politician ever say those words? I spent a career in the newspaper business and interviewed everybody from candidates for small town city councils […]
