There is more to RVing than just driving down the highway from one campground to another. America has many delightful and fascinating treasures that people drive by every day, never even knowing they exist. To make sure you don’t miss anything, here are some favorite travel guides that I refer to often. 50 States, 5,000 […]

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 […]

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 […]

We all hate them. Those annoying calls from someone that immediately launches into a spiel about the good news they have for you. They’re going to reduce your credit card debt, extend your car’s warranty, protect your investment in your house with pest control service, or whatever they are hustling.

Here’s another tale from the Nick Happens file. Anybody who knows me well already knows that I require adult supervision at all times. Left to my own devices, there is no end to the trouble I can get into, and I don’t have to look far to find it. So you can blame Miss Terry, […]

Note: This is an updated post that I thought some of you might find interesting. It is based upon nothing more than my own personal opinion. In the last few weeks, I’ve gotten quite a few e-mails from RV campers who think that they are RVers. I hate to burst their bubbles, but at the […]

Another story from the Nick Happens file book. Okay, I know everybody deserves their fifteen minutes of fame. This is the story of mine. But before I write another word, I have to warn you: Do not try this at home (or anywhere else, for that matter)! Unless, of course, you think you can get […]

It’s still cold here in Florida, and cold is not my friend. It makes my joints ache and before you know it I’m launching into a snivel. Nobody wants to hear that. As fulltime RVers, we tried to avoid cold-weather whenever possible. But sometimes we got stuck someplace and had to deal with. I never […]

I get a lot of email from RVers as well as from campers. And I get a lot of emails from people who believe they are one and the same. They’re not. At least not by my definition, for what that’s worth. In my mind, RVers are people who live or travel in an RV […]

I’m back with more questions from blog readers about RVing, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, and all kinds of other things. While I try to answer all questions individually, I also share some here occasionally. Q. My husband is an introvert who is perfectly happy staying home reading books […]
