When I offered to take Miss Terry out for dinner yesterday in honor of Mother’s Day, I already knew that she would tell me no. Terry doesn’t like a big fuss made over her, and her idea of a good day is to spend it at home with the people she loves. And it was […]

Several years ago when we were staying at the Hershey, Pennsylvania Thousand Trails preserve we were invaded by stinkbugs. If you are unfamiliar with these nasty little critters, consider yourself lucky. They seem to be able to find their way into every little nook and cranny of a home or RV, and once you get […]

Note: This is a repeat of a blog from a few years ago that covers some questions I get quite often. Okay, the question of the day is, who makes the rules? I never get invited to the meetings when whatever secret society it is that determines such things get together, but apparently there is […]

And on the windshield, and the hood, and the bumper, and the grill. No, we’re not talking about some kind of wild orgy where people are doing the nasty anywhere they can. This is an orgy of love bugs, a phenomenon that anybody in Florida is familiar with. It happens every year, in the spring […]

The third book in my Big Lake mystery series is called Crazy Days In Big Lake, and as the title implies, there was a lot going on in that little mountain town and everybody seemed to have gone crazy. Neighbors were threatening each other with violence, eco-protestors were on the march, flower children were camping […]

My newest book, Big Lake Fugitive, is moving right along through the pre-production stages. Terry finished the initial editing and proofreading on Saturday, and yesterday I finished making all of the corrections she suggested. Then I sent it off to my second proofreader. She’s usually pretty quick, and as soon as I get back from […]

My dad’s been gone for over 30 years now but I still think about him. Not just on Father’s Day, but every day. He was quite a guy and I’d love to be able sit down and talk to him again. He was part of the Greatest Generation who helped to push the Japanese out […]

I got an early start writing yesterday and things are moving along very well. So well in fact, that I thought I would be done with my new book by the end of the day. But Mother Nature and the computer gremlins were in collusion and they had other plans. This time of year we […]

We love lighthouses and have toured them from the Great Lakes to the Pacific Northwest coast, so we were excited to discover Florida’s tallest lighthouse, near Daytona Beach. The 175 foot tall Ponce De Leon Inlet Lighthouse is one of the best preserved and most authentic historic light stations in the country. The lighthouse construction […]

A few years ago we spent a few days at the Escapees Dreamcatcher RV Park in Deming, New Mexico, and one Sunday morning when I went up to the office to check out so we could go on to Arizona, everybody was amazed that we’d travel on Super Bowl Sunday. I probably further advanced their […]
