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 […]

Going Nonstop

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 […]

Is It Monday Yet?

Most working people dread Monday morning because it is the start of another long work week. Mondays don’t bother me because I work every day of the week. Some days I work more than others, but every day I at least write a blog, and I am usually working on a book, or working on […]

A Do-Nothing Day

Yesterday was pretty much a do-nothing day for me. I don’t know if I was still feeling the effects of my medical marijuana overdose, or if I was just lazy (which could very well be the case), but whatever the reason, I just didn’t have any energy or any interest in doing anything. I did […]

Nothing Happening Here

I keep hearing from people asking us if we are safe and out of harm’s way from Hurricane Florence. Thank you for your concern, and yes, we are fine. The hurricane made landfall about 550 miles north of us, so except for some high surf it was a nonevent for us. We didn’t even get […]

I Spoke Too Soon

In my last blog I said that after a couple of trips to the chiropractor my back was feeling much better. At the time I wrote that, it was the truth. But apparently I spoke too soon. I posted the blog a little before 1 AM our time, then went to bed. Sometime around 3 […]

It’s A Wet Heat

Several people have asked me how we are handling our first full summer here in Florida, and if the heat and humidity are getting to us. We are actually doing quite well. Every day it gets into the upper 80s or low 90s and humidity is somewhere about the same, but it’s a wet heat. […]

Well Darn It!

Just about the time I thought I was back to normal, or whatever passes for normal with me, my darn back is out again. We stayed up late to watch the launch of the SpaceX “block 5” Falcon 9 rocket, which lifted off at 1:18 AM Tuesday morning from Cape Canaveral. A little while later, […]

We were up early yesterday morning because I had an appointment at the VA Medical Center in Daytona Beach for something called a field of vision test. I have rather large and abnormally shaped eyes, and every time I get an eye exam, when they do a pressure test they tell me they think I […]
