This is a blog about catching up. Catching up on the last day of our trip because I was too tired Saturday night to write much, and about catching up now that we are home. As I wrote a couple of days ago, we spent Friday night at the Country Inn and Suites in Tifton, […]

We spent eight days at the Superstition Springs La Quinta in Mesa, Arizona while we were in town to celebrate Terry’s parents’ birthdays, which included a family reunion with relatives coming in from as far away as New York for the festivities. We also spent some time browsing the local antique shops, me looking for […]

Note: This is day four a series of posts telling you about our trip home from the Midwest. The cold weather was still dogging us, and when we woke up at the Hampton Inn in Farmville, Virginia, the outside temperature was only 28°. Now that’s cold in my book! We were in no hurry to […]

I’m a small town boy at heart, and though I have been to just about every major city in the United States and a few in other countries, big cities just don’t do a thing for me. So I avoid them whenever I can. But yesterday we took a trip down to Orlando, and I […]

If you live in Alabama you have to be a football fan. In fact, I think a requirement to graduate from middle school is to be able to recite from memory the names of all of the great Alabama football players and coaches, starting back in the days of Adam and Eve, assuming they played […]

Okay, Arizona. Enough of this nonsense! It was 31o here in Apache Junction overnight Wednesday night and about 40o at 9 a.m. And it was cold all day long. I highly disapprove! Meanwhile, when I talked to my son last night, he was bragging that it was in the low 80s at his place in […]

If you are driving from the Georgia state line all the way south to Key West, Florida is about 500 miles long. But east to west, at its widest point it’s only 160 miles. Yeah, it’s a narrow state. Which is good because we made the round-trip from coast-to-coast yesterday. When we first met, Miss […]

While the beautiful Oregon coast is one of our favorite travel destinations and we never get tired of it, there is a lot to see and do away from the beach, too. A while back we discovered historic Oakland, a charming little town that has worked hard to preserve its heritage. Though it is located […]

In a blog post a while back, I said I was looking for an old floor model console radio to put in my office. When I was a kid I loved those old radios and when I was in high school, old console and table model radios were everywhere and you could pick them up […]

My new book, Big Lake Tragedy, has been through two proofreaders now, with one more to go. So it won’t be long now, folks! I don’t know about you, but I’m getting excited. Since we have been pretty much confined to the house while I was working on the new book, we decided to take […]
