That about sums it up for us right now. When the heck did moving become such a hard job? I mean, I know it was never easy, but this time around really seems to be kicking our butts. We ache in places where we didn’t even have places a week ago. We took a break […]

Please watch where you’re walking around us for a while, will you? Because mine and Miss Terry’s butts are dragging and I wouldn’t want you to step on them. With my dad’s work when I was a kid, and later my time in the military and living in different places around the country afterward, I […]

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 […]

Today should be our last day in the desert, and we’re sure looking forward to getting someplace cooler. It’s been 99° the last couple of days, and while that’s a step down from the triple digit temperatures of last weekend, it is still way too hot for me. People who love the desert will tell […]

Yesterday was a rainy day here in Tillamook, Oregon. It started raining sometime in the wee hours of the morning, and it kept up all day long. Sometimes it really poured, and at other times it was more of a drizzle, or even a sprinkle. A typical Pacific Northwest coast day. Which made it a […]

I’m not a smart man, but I am smart enough to know that there are a lot of things I cannot do. When I was a teenager, I decided to change the spark plugs on my first car. So I took off all eight plug wires, pulled the old plugs out, carefully gapped the new […]

Proving just how hard it is to break a bad habit once it gets established, I was awake by 7 a.m. yesterday morning. That’s about four hours after the time I normally get to bed. This really has to stop! The weather report had called for scattered thunderstorms in western Michigan, and soon after I […]
