Note: This is an updated post that I thought some of you might find interesting. It is based upon nothing more than my own personal opinion. In the last few weeks, I’ve gotten quite a few e-mails from RV campers who think that they are RVers. I hate to burst their bubbles, but at the […]

Note: This is a repeat of a blog from December, 2016 that I thought was appropriate to repost again for those of you asking about decorating an RV for Christmas. Some people think that just because you become a fulltime RVer or a snowbird you can’t decorate for Christmas. Oh, how wrong they are! Here […]

I’m back with more questions from blog readers about RVing, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, and all kinds of other things. While I try to answer all questions individually, I also share some here occasionally. Q. I know that you and Terry taught for Life on Wheels for many […]

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection.

Is there anyone who doesn’t love the old Otis Redding classic song (Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay? I know I’ve tapped my feet to it a few thousand times in my life. Did you know that it was recorded by Redding just days before his death in an airplane crash in 1967? The […]

In a recent conversation with somebody who was asking me for suggestions on places to spend the winter in his RV, I told him about some of the places in Florida we like. His immediate response was, “Oh, hell no! I don’t want to get eaten by an alligator!” I assured him that probably wasn’t […]

In yesterday’s blog I wrote about our trip to a couple of antique malls and said that a lot of the things people call antiques today were everyday household items when Terry and I were growing up. Then I added that I am so old that I remember having to get up and actually change […]

Once in a while people ask me if I really do get all of the e-mails I occasionally share with blog readers because it’s hard to believe people could be that: A. Dumb, B. Naive, C. Clueless, or D. All of the above. But something I learned early on in my career publishing small town […]
