I worked late on Tuesday night, trying to get as much done in my new book as I could. Of course, when I work that late I can’t just flip a switch and turn it off and fall asleep. It takes a while for my mind to unwind and relax. So it was sometime after […]

If you’re going to be heading north, try to avoid Atlanta, Georgia if at all possible. The news last night said that a fire caused a portion of Interstate 85 to collapse in Atlanta and that traffic is going to face delays for a long time. Getting around or through Atlanta is a challenge under […]

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 […]

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.

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!
