Most RVers are really nice people, but they don’t make you take a personality test before they let you buy one of these things, and like every aspect of life, there are a few snobs out there, as well as clods and outright idiots. I’m rather well known in the RV world because of the […]

The thermometer has been flirting with the 100 degree mark, which is a reason a lot of people stay out of Florida in the summer. The good news is that there is less traffic on the roads, and stores and restaurants are not very crowded. The bad news is that it’s too bloody hot to […]

That old Boy Scout motto comes in handy in the RV lifestyle, just as it does in the rest of the world. We may never know what’s going to happen in the next moment, but we can do a few things to help us deal with whatever comes along. Here’s an example; we were parked […]

When I was a kid, I was so accident-prone that my father used to say I should probably get a job in a mattress factory. Then he would think about it for a minute and say no, I would more than likely knock a stack of mattresses off on top of me and smother myself. […]

Okay, somebody needs to stop the clock, because it’s going way too fast! Today my son Travis turns 42 years old. How in the world could I possibly have a child that old? I’m barely out of puberty myself! I thought the calculator was messed up, so I did the math three or four times. […]

As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, we had planned to stay home on Friday so I could get some writing done and Miss Terry could get back to her latest long-delayed weaving project. But then we ran out to do a couple of errands and the day got away from us. So we didn’t accomplish […]

In yesterday’s blog I said we would probably spend the day at home writing and weaving. That’s the way I saw it happening when I wrote that, but as it turned out I was lying through my tooth. Except for this blog I didn’t do any writing, Miss Terry did not do any weaving, and […]

It’s been in the low to mid-90s for days now, and the humidity has kicked in to add to the discomfort. Florida is not a good place to be a fat man this time of year. But it has convinced me I need to change my ways and clean up my act, because obviously I […]

We have been to several Presidential homes and gravesites, and even to President Truman’s Little White House in Key West, Florida. But we especially liked the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library and Museum in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I think we found this one so interesting because President Ford took office when we were young adults […]
