Let’s be honest, when it comes to friends, I’m pretty high maintenance. Especially if you know anything about maintaining anything mechanical. Just ask my buddy Greg White. Years ago his wife Jan mentioned that he could fix just about anything, and 24 hours later I had him standing in a pool of cold water on […]

Happy Birthday Greg!

Today is my buddy Greg White’s 67th birthday, if my high school math still works. But that’s only a number. In reality Greg is just 30, plus shipping and handling. Okay, a LOT of shipping and handling! I tease Greg all the time but that’s only because he’s the guy comedian Jeff Foxworthy is talking […]

Life Had Other Plans

Yesterday was a cold, dreary day here on Washington’s Long Beach Peninsula, and I had hoped to spend it writing while Terry was weaving. But life had other plans for us. Monday evening Terry washed the dinner dishes with no problem, but at bedtime we could not get more than a trickle of water from […]

One Problem Fixed

I mentioned the other day that we had a water leak that we could not find and that it was getting worse. A couple of blog readers recommended Morry Bernard, who runs West Coast Mobile RV Service & Repair here in Florence and is also in our RV Good Guys guide, so I knew he […]

Drip, Drip, Drip

For the last few weeks we’ve had a persistent water leak dripping out of the bay where our water pump and expansion tank are, and try as we might, we can’t figure out where it’s coming from. At first I thought it was the water pump, but that’s not the problem. Then I thought the […]

No, I wasn’t in a swimming pool working out yesterday. I try to never subject my fellow human beings to the sight of my whale-like body in anything less than long pants and a shirt. It just doesn’t seem nice to do that to folks who may want to use their eyes to see again. […]

These helpful hints are guaranteed to make things easier as you travel down the highway of life with the girl of your dreams.

I Fixed It!!!

I had hoped to get some work done on my book yesterday but it seemed like the rest of the world didn’t want that to happen. To be honest, it started off slow because I didn’t sleep well the night before and got up even later than usual for me. I had a huge backlog […]

We all change and evolve over time, including fulltime RVers. While Terry and I have reached the point where we prefer the comforts of a full hookup RV park, we are no strangers to dry camping. In fact, we probably have a lot more experience at it than most folks we know. There was a […]

Today is my buddy Greg White’s  65th birthday, which makes him really, really old! But that’s okay buddy, I’m not that far behind you. Just two charming old farts, right? Although his pretty wife Jan and Miss Terry might disagree with that statement since when the two of us get together, we seem to regress […]
