Franklin Delano Roosevelt was one of America’s most beloved presidents, and the only man to hold the nation’s top office for four terms. He was a father figure to all of America, pulling us out of the Great Depression and seeing us through the darkest days of World War II. His Fireside Chats were an […]

There is a saying that we lived by during our 18+ years as fulltime RVers – that we always made our plans in Jello so anytime we wanted to we could shake it up and rewrite them as needed. And even though we hung up the keys over three years ago, we are still shaking […]

It seemed like I was busy all day yesterday, but at the same time it didn’t seem like I accomplished anything at all. Some days are like that, I guess. I started the day wading through a bunch of emails. Several of them wanted information that I didn’t know off the top of my head […]

It’s been pretty hot here for the last week or so, and we have stayed close to home for most of it. Terry is involved in a weaving project, and I’ve been working on my new Big Lake mystery book. I’m at 16,000 words now and moving right along. Speaking of books, that’s the subject […]
