Yesterday we had a visit from a celebrity from the RV world. Our friend Al Hesselbart drove up from Bushnell to spend the afternoon with us. We had not seen Al since last summer when we were at Elkhart Campground in Indiana and we were really looking forward to his visit. If you don’t know […]

Sunday evening we got an email from our old friend Pat Astbury, telling us she was at Elkhart Campground and had been thinking about us and the times we have crossed paths here.

Last night, I finished my new book, Big Lake Lynching. It sure feels good to have it done!

As I wrote a while back, our plans for 2012 have already been changed a couple of times, due to needing to get repairs done to our coach and scheduling conflicts with my appointments at the Tucson VA hospital. So we scrapped our planned trip to the Keys for this year, and we may stop […]
