I am not sure if it was due to the quick nap I took on my bed of plastic nails that I wrote about in yesterday’s blog, titled I’ll Try Anything Once, or just sheer exhaustion, but either way I slept very solid Thursday night. I think I got up to go to the bathroom […]

Except for vegetables. I hate those darn things. Oh, and scuba diving. I won’t do that. I saw Jaws. Or craft beer. I don’t drink any kind of alcohol, but if I did, it would not be some kind of snooty craft beer. Nope, it would have to be Budweiser or Coors. A working man’s […]

Yesterday I went a little bit crazy and bought myself a new office chair that cost more than my first new car. It is a Lifeform executive office chair from a place called Relax the Back in Orlando. My pain doctor first told me about them, and my chiropractor was very enthusiastic about them. You […]

I never did learn to swim, though Miss Terry has taught me enough to get from one side of the shallow end of a swimming pool to the other. But my doctor and chiropractor have both recommended getting in a swimming pool and walking around in chest deep water for a half hour a day. […]

We’ve all heard somebody say you can’t make this stuff up when they come across something that seems so bizarre it can’t be real, but it happens all the time. Sometimes it’s not the things that happen, but the things you hear. Things that make you say, huh? Here are some examples we have heard […]

Except for some appointments with the doctor and the chiropractor, we haven’t been out much in the last week or so because it’s been so bloody hot here. If you live in Florida, just like people who live in Arizona and other places with intense heat, you learn to appreciate the benefits of staying home […]

Yesterday was a crazy busy day. Just as promised, Wednesday evening the final proofreader finished Big Lake Ninja and sent the manuscript back to me so I could start working on it yesterday morning. Unfortunately, lately my back has been giving me a lot of problems again, so Wednesday night I could hardly sleep. No […]

As most regular blog readers know, back in early February we went to Arizona to pick up my cousin Beverly and brought her here to live with us. She has some serious health issues and wasn’t getting much accomplished with the doctors in Tucson. A few weeks ago she had surgery to insert a shunt […]

On The Go

We were on the go all day yesterday, from the time we got out of bed until sometime close to 8 PM, when we finally managed to settle into our recliners and relax in front of the boob tube for a while. I started the day with an appointment with Doctor Rob Kent at Coastal […]

Between catching up on a ton of email that accumulated while we were on the road to Arizona and back, working on a new John Lee Quarrels book, getting my cousin Beverly settled in and arranging for the things she needs, and setting up doctor appointments for her and for us, it feels like we […]
