I received an email yesterday from an irate woman who wanted me to help spread the word that a campground, whose name I won’t be mentioning here, threw her and her husband out “for no reason at all.” She said they have four Pomeranian dogs, of which two of them are his emotional support animals […]

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 […]

Yesterday was another busy day for us, even though we were just hanging out at home. And when I say hanging, I mean that in more ways than one. I mentioned the other day that our friends Greg and Jan White are coming to visit, and somebody asked if they would be parking their motorhome […]

Note: Because this is a topic that comes up often, I thought I would brush off and repost this blog from March, 2013.

I get a lot of questions from blog readers about RVing, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, writing and self-publishing, and all kinds of other things. While I try to answer all of them individually, sometimes I also share some here. Q. At one of your rallies in Ohio there […]

I decided we needed a play day yesterday so we drove out to the Volusia County Fairgrounds to check out the gun show. Back in the day, I used to go to a lot of gun shows, and I even put my own on for a while. It’s been quite some time since I’ve gone […]

As history buffs, we have visited all kinds of historical sites in our travels, from Revolutionary War and Civil War battlefields to historic homes, old forts, and all kinds of history museums in every corner of the country. We have walked the Freedom Trail in Boston and visited Paul Revere’s house. We stood on the […]

Yeah, that blog title got your attention, didn’t it? I know it sounds pretty harsh, but unfortunately, it’s true. Everybody’s kids are going to die. Yours and mine, and everybody in the world’s kids. Just like the rest of us. But let me explain where I’m going with all of this. I was in an […]
