As most of you know, I’ve been trying to lose weight and have been walking at least a mile a day on my treadmill. And I’m beginning to see some results. I’ve lost about 35 pounds and my doctor took me off my diabetes medicine. But there is a big difference between walking a mile […]

After reading a post a while back where I said I have lost 20+ pounds, some readers wanted to know what kind of diet I was on. I’m not on any formal diet, I have just stopped eating the junk food I love so much and cut back on snacks, stopped eating ice cream and […]

I Need A Day Off

Lately all I’ve been doing is running back and forth to doctor appointments and working on my new book, Big Lake Wedding. I need a day off to just go sit on the dock and watch the dolphins playing in the water and the manatee swimming by. Or better yet, to hop in my Mustang […]

Some blog readers have asked how it’s possible for a guy my size to fit into a small car like a Mustang. A couple of people have said I should have bought a convertible because with the top down it would be much easier. One smart Alec suggested the only way I was going to […]

I have been walking a mile a day on my treadmill, trying to get at least a little bit of exercise to help overcome my pretty much sedentary lifestyle. I don’t think I’m ever going to be skinny, but I would sure like to shed enough pounds get down to just being fat instead of […]

Frustration City

My driver’s license may say I live in Edgewater, Florida, but yesterday I felt like I spent much of the day in Frustration City. That’s not a pleasant place to be, and I’m not a pleasant person to be around when I’m stuck there. The day started off on a bad note when I stepped […]

Miss Terry had a doctor’s appointment early Monday afternoon and we thought we would pop into the library in New Smyrna Beach on the way and vote early. As it turned out, about half of Volusia County had the same idea. The place was packed and a double line snaked up and down the hallway. […]

I have only been drunk a few times in my life, maybe half a dozen at most, and that was back during my Army days raising hell with the guys when we got off duty. That phase of my life didn’t last very long for a number of reasons, including I don’t like the taste […]

Just Stop It!

Whoever all of you people are who have your air conditioners set on high and pointed at Florida, would you just stop it? Seriously, I can take a joke as well as the next guy, but when it’s snowing in Tallahassee you’re taking things just a wee bit too far, don’t you think? The wind […]

Florida Is Still Here

I have received quite a few e-mails from RV snowbirds wanting to know if I think they’ll be able to come to Florida for the winter as they had planned, due to the problems from Hurricane Irma. Yes, come on down. Florida is still here and open for business. While some areas got hit worse […]
