Even though they call me Gadget Boy because I always like to check out the newest electronic gadgets, that doesn’t mean I understand how any of them work. And I usually get as much frustration as I do enjoyment out of a lot of the stuff out there. Our Verizon 3G air card and wireless […]

I Yam What I Yam

In the words of the immortal Popeye the Sailor, “and that’s all what I yam.” Take me or leave me, I’m too old to change and I kind of like who I yam. So when somebody who works for the government took offense to me picking on postal workers in yesterday’s blog and left a […]

Thank you to everybody who left comments or sent e-mails in response to yesterday’s blog. You help me reaffirm to myself that it’s okay to be selfish and put ourselves first once in a while. Terry and I are both the type who always want to please others, but we are discovering that, just as […]

Our last couple of nights here at the Pima County Fairgrounds RV Park have been less than stellar. The fairgrounds is located right next to Tucson Raceway Park and Friday and Saturday night they had races going on. No problem there, I like racing. In fact, I even published a racing newspaper for a while, […]

Yesterday was a busy day for us, starting early and ending late. And we’re looking at a lot more of them before we’re done. I spent several hours printing out mailing labels, and Miss Terry was slapping them on envelopes as fast as they came out of the printer. We use Stamps.com to print our […]

It has really cooled down here in central Florida! If I had a fireplace, I’d put another log on it! I’m kind of wishing I had that dog the guy at Thousand Trails accused me of owning last week, because I’d let it sleep on the bed to help keep my feet warm! 🙂 I […]

Our two weeks here at The Great Outdoors went by way too fast, and today we will drive 70 miles or so to the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve, which is actually west of Orlando a bit. We liked Titusville before, based upon our two earlier visits to this area, and the last two weeks have […]

A Spectacular Drive

We left Walnut Meadow campground in Berea, Kentucky a little after 9 yesterday morning, and enjoyed a spectacular 220 mile drive down Interstate 75 to Knoxville, Tennessee, where we picked up Interstate 40 and drove into the Smokey Mountains in North Carolina. Except for the brief time we were in the Knoxville metro area, I […]

Today’s Gonna Suck

Yep, today’s gonna suck, no question about it. It’s going to suck big time. I know, because we are in Celina, Ohio and the overnight low was 33 degrees. That’s abut 50 degrees below my preferred temperature range. And, I have to get up about 6 a.m. so I can dump and flush our black […]

I had an epiphany yesterday, which was pretty cool, because I don’t think I’ve ever had one of those before. Oh hell, let’s be honest, up until a week ago, I thought an epiphany was one of those hybrid foreign cars. :)  And they call me the wordsmith? Anyway, back to my epiphany. Yesterday I […]
