Another Rainy Day

Yesterday was another rainy day for us here on the Central Florida coast. And just like the day before, we had periods of hard rain and at other times it was no more than a light sprinkle, but it seemed to come down for most of the day. I was perfectly happy with that because […]

Two Days In A Row?

Is it possible that I will actually be able to post blogs two days in a row without Go Daddy crashing again? Wow, that would be something, wouldn’t it? It does seem like they have finally fixed the problem, although I still don’t know what caused it to go down in the first place. I’ve […]

Thanks to the hard work of Miss Terry, my friend Roberta Jensen, and another dear friend, Cool Judy Rinehimer, who all went above and beyond the call of duty, they completed the several stages of editing and proofing my newest book, Big Lake Quarterback, and I uploaded it to Amazon yesterday afternoon just before 4 […]

When I was a teenager my father once told me that if you can find a job you love that you can’t wait to get to every morning, it doesn’t matter how much you get paid. I have been very blessed, because for most of my working life I have done just that. Something else […]

Yesterday was a busy day and I felt like I got a lot accomplished for a change. It’s about time, right? After starting the morning by answering a lot of emails, I got to work on my new Big Lake book, doing some research to check some facts in the storyline and then reading through […]

Beaches And Treehouses

In two days of writing, I’m somewhere over 5,000 words into my newest Big Lake mystery novel. I didn’t get anything done on it yesterday because we had some errands to run, but just because you’re running errands doesn’t mean you can’t have a good time, right? Our first stop of the day was at […]

Two Down, One To Go

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 […]

A Busy Weekend

Miss Terry and I had a busy weekend and we got a lot accomplished. In yesterday’s blog I told you about our Saturday trip down to Winter Springs to visit Kellyco, the metal detecting store, and shared some pictures of the many recovered treasures they have on display. But before we went there, we pulled […]

Keeping It Real

Before I do anything else, I want to wish our pal Chris Yust happy birthday. Not only is Chris our insurance agent, she and her hubby Charles are two of our oldest friends in the RV world. We first met at an  Escapees RV Club rally in Goshen, Indiana what seems like a lifetime ago when we were […]

I Hope That’s Over

When I logged onto my computer yesterday morning I was greeted by three messages from readers who also read my buddy Greg White’s daily blog, Our RV Adventures, wanting to know if Greg was okay because they could not access his blog. Two of them just said there was no blog, while the third said […]

I Miss My Wife

Miss Terry and I had such a wonderful marriage for so long that some people even said we were codependent. If you saw one of us, you can bet the other was close at hand. Living in a motorhome for over 17 years, any time I looked up she was right there. I really miss […]

We will begin moving into our new home on Friday, and in the meantime we are keeping ourselves busy to help the time go faster. On Saturday we drove to the small town of De Land, about half an hour from here, to visit a couple of used furniture stores. We have already been making […]

Whenever I say that we have been looking around here for a winter base and someday home if we ever hang up the keys I get e-mails from people who ask me why we would consider living in Florida, the land of hurricanes. And I always reply that every place in the country has something, […]

Today We Play

For the last few days we’ve been sticking pretty close to home writing and weaving, so I have declared today a play day. We need those every once in a while. Terry finished weaving her latest project and took it off the loom last night. It’s a huck lace shawl, a new pattern for her […]

It’s been a busy weekend here at Elkhart Campground. The IRV2 rally is going on this week and the place is packed. I wanted to give them some door prizes for the rally, but I wasn’t able to find anybody who knew who was in charge of anything. I’ll probably go to the office today […]

We’ve been busy with some chores the last couple of days and I had not had any time for writing. So yesterday after I dealt with all of the e-mails that came in overnight, I parked myself in front of the computer and went to work. By the time I knocked off several hours later, […]

We Make It Work

Several blog readers have asked how big Miss Terry’s Baby Wolf loom is and how much space it takes up in our motorhome. The loom folds up when not in use. When it’s opened up, the loom’s footprint is about three feet square, with the beam handle adding another six inches or so to its […]

Frugal Or Cheap?

I got an e-mail yesterday from a reader who asked why anyone would consider spending a night at a WalMart, truck stop, or highway rest area when there are so many campgrounds around the country. She asked if the RVers who do this are all cheapskates, or it there is ever a legitimate reason to […]

No, not my hair, or what’s left of it. It may be silver, but it passed 60 a few years ago. I’m talking about Silver Avions, beautiful classic travel trailers that many people think are Airstreams when they first see them. Actually, many people I know who have Avions think they’re far superior to Airstreams. […]

Busy As Bees

Terry and I have been as busy as bees the last few days, and we’ve gotten a lot accomplished, but we still have more to do. I’ve been working hard on my new Big Lake mystery novel, cranking out an average of 4000 words a day. I’m over two thirds done now and I’m looking […]
