Somebody once told me I could go to a stranger’s funeral and make friends with the guy in the box by the time the preaching was over. I’m not sure if that is 100% true, but I have always believed in the old saying that a stranger is just a friend you haven’t met before. […]

It’s been a while since I’ve shared one of my Nick Happens stories, which are a collection of my adventures and misadventures over the years. Today I thought I’d tell you about an RV trip we took to Maine early in our fulltime RVing days, and how I wound up a drag queen. Maine was […]

Are you finished with your Christmas shopping yet? Or are you one of those people who hits the mall fifteen minutes before it closes on Christmas Eve, frantically searching for anything to finish out your shopping list? I mean what the heck? Any present is better than no present, right? Well, maybe not. Today I […]

Terry is still in the recovery stage from her Medtronics implant and doing well overall. She only took one or two pain pills in the first day or two after the surgery, and since then unless she moves wrong or bumps into something, or more likely me bumping into her, things aren’t too bad. But […]

I know, in this day and age we are not supposed to call people names. But sometimes you just have to. Comedian Bill Engvall made a fortune with his Here’s Your Sign gig, so I guess if he could point out the stupid things people say and do, I’ll give it a try and see […]

Road Trip!

I bought my Mustang EcoBoost in late November, and as I said then, it’s strictly a toy, not my daily driver. As of yesterday morning it still only had 450 miles on the odometer. So I decided it was time for a road trip! My friend Holli Marie Spaulding is in the process of opening […]

Fulltime RVers and snowbirds, or anybody who travels a lot, know that saying goodbye is always the hardest part of going back to visit the people you love. And so it was when it was time for us to leave Arizona for the trip home. The good thing is that the highway runs in both […]

I’ve done a lot of things to make a buck in my life, from delivering newspapers when I was a youngster and working in a gas station to a couple of short jobs in factories, being a soldier, driving taxi cab, working as a clerk in a convenience store during college, owning retail businesses, putting […]

Oops, I Goofed!

In yesterday’s blog, when I talked about RV fire extinguishers I recommend my friend Mac McCoy, the world’s acknowledged RV fire safety expert, and included a link to his website. As it turns out, I goofed. When Mac and I talked a few weeks ago, he told me that he was planning to pull the […]

It Just Never Ends

With apologies to my author friends Billy Kring and George Wier, and all the other Texans I know, if I don’t see the Lone Star State again for a decade or so, it wouldn’t hurt my feelings one bit. The damn state just never ends! You drive and drive through hundreds of miles of mountains, […]
