Wait Five Minutes

We have all heard the old saying “if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes and it will change.” Apparently the people at Amazon’s customer service department live by that same rule. Or at least the ones I’ve been dealing with lately do. In early August I ordered three Master Lock 265D Door Security […]

In A Pinch

Many years ago there was a TV commercial about weight loss or fitness or some such nonsense where a very good looking, very fit male or female actor would grab their very tight abdomen between their thumb and finger and ask, “Can you pinch an inch?” Are you kidding me? At my best the most […]

We may have hung up the keys but we still get hitch itch and we’ve got a lot of traveling left to do. In 18+ years of fulltiming we saw a lot of places but there are still some we never got to, as well as places we definitely want to go back to once […]

I appreciate everybody’s concern for my health given my recent episode of dizziness and all that. When I went to bed Tuesday night the dull headache was still there, but I was so tired that I thought I would sleep through anything. As it turned out, I was wrong about that. My back was hurting, […]

Hello all of you April foolers out there. What kind of shenanigans are you up to today? Putting salt in the sugar bowl. Maybe stretching saran wrap over the toilet. So many pranks and so little time. Joking around and having fun on April Fools’ Day is always a hoot, but I’m not fooling you […]

When I get this close to the end of a book and the whole story is coming together, I don’t want to stop. I feel like a marathon runner that’s just seen the finish line. Okay, I made that part up. I have no idea what a marathon runner would feel like, and I don’t […]

My, How Time Flies

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 […]

Binge Writing

I have been pushing hard, trying to get my new book Sweet Tea And Jesus finished, and doing a lot of binge writing to get it accomplished. Yesterday was a marathon writing day, I went at it pretty much nonstop and by the end of the day I had another 11,237 words under my belt. […]

Way Too Early

I’m a night owl, not a morning dove, so when the alarm clock rang at 6:15 yesterday morning, all I wanted to do was shut it off and go back to sleep. That’s just way too early. But Beverly had an appointment with a neurosurgeon in Daytona Beach at 8:30 so that was out of […]

I don’t know about you, but I’m glad Thanksgiving is over. It used to be my least favorite holiday, except for Easter. Even as a kid I couldn’t understand how the Savior of the Christian world dying on the cross and then being resurrected morphed into some guy in a bunny suit hiding eggs in […]
