Yesterday I had an appointment with my civilian primary care doctor for a routine checkup and to review some lab work I had done last week. After reviewing everything from the labs and checking my heart and blood pressure, she says I’m in darned good shape for a fat old guy. All of my numbers; […]

Several people have asked how my cousin Beverly is doing following her surgery last week to drain excess fluid from around her brain. Thank you all for your concern. At first they said she would probably be home in a day or two, but then the decision was made to put her into a rehab […]

Ingrates Everywhere

In yesterday’s blog I mentioned the fellow who told me he only comes to this blog to enter the weekly contest and was upset because he has not won yet. But he’s not the only ingrate around. Not by a long shot. I heard from a longtime reader who owns a campground in Kentucky who […]

When I was a kid I always heard adults say that the older you get, the faster time goes by. I never understood that because it just didn’t make sense. A minute has 60 seconds in it, an hour has 60 minutes, a day has 24 hours, and a week has 7 days. It’s the […]

The weather here in Central Florida has been crazy. In the last week we’ve had overnight temperatures that dropped down into the upper 30s, and some days we had to wear jackets when we left the house. Other days, like yesterday, it was in the 80s and the air conditioner was running. I guess the […]

I Need A Day Off

Lately all I’ve been doing is running back and forth to doctor appointments and working on my new book, Big Lake Wedding. I need a day off to just go sit on the dock and watch the dolphins playing in the water and the manatee swimming by. Or better yet, to hop in my Mustang […]

Pyramid Schemes

I received a lot of responses to yesterday’s blog about play dates for RVing kids, and the general consensus seemed to be that 15 and 17-year-old boys don’t need play dates as much as they need a mother who doesn’t hover over them monitoring their every move. I also got a few requests for information […]

Just Stop It!

Whoever all of you people are who have your air conditioners set on high and pointed at Florida, would you just stop it? Seriously, I can take a joke as well as the next guy, but when it’s snowing in Tallahassee you’re taking things just a wee bit too far, don’t you think? The wind […]

A Quick Blog

This is going to be a quick blog, because we are on the road this morning to Arizona to be with my daughter. I can’t thank you enough for all of the prayers and good wishes so many of you have sent. I wish I had time to reply to each email, text, blog comment, […]
