After driving my Mustang to Daytona Beach a few days ago and some running around I did yesterday in it, it now has 840 miles on the odometer. So I was a little distressed to find rust on one of the bolts that holds the driver’s side door hinge to the car. It lives in […]

For the last few days I’ve been working hard on my new Big Lake book, knocking out over 20,000 words in three or four days. Yesterday alone was over 6,000 words. That, coupled with the fact that Miss Terry hasn’t been out of the house much at all since her surgery two weeks ago today […]

I hope everybody had a very Merry Christmas . How did you spend your holiday? Visiting family? At an RV park Christmas dinner? Did you go out to eat someplace? We had a very quiet Christmas here at home, just the two of us. We started the day snuggling in bed like we always do, […]

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 […]

Well, if you tried to log onto the blog yesterday and got the same darned Adobe flash pop-up or another from Google Play Protect if you were on a smart phone or tablet, you know that all of the hours I spent on the phone with Go Daddy’s tech support on Wednesday accomplished absolutely nothing.

Fat Guy In A Hot Place

It’s been in the low to mid-90s for days now, and the humidity has kicked in to add to the discomfort. Florida is not a good place to be a fat man this time of year. But it has convinced me I need to change my ways and clean up my act, because obviously I […]

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog, a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t have anything else to talk […]

She’s Doing Great

We spent several hours at the rehab facility with Beverly yesterday as they put her through her paces and showed us how much progress she has made since her major surgery last week, and explained what the follow-up plan is when she is released from the hospital next week. From everything I can see, she […]

With everything that has been going on in our lives lately there has not been a lot of time for writing or weaving, or much of anything else. But while Beverly has been in the hospital things are not quite as busy. We make the trip over to see her two or three times a […]

I have received a number of emails and messages wanting to know when my new John Lee Quarrels book, Sweet Tea And Jesus, will be out. It’s with the final proofreader and I expect to get back from her at any time. As soon as she does, I will make any final corrections she pointed […]
