It had been way too long since we had seen my son Travis and his pretty wife Geli, so we decided a road trip was in order to remedy that situation. What the heck, any road trip anywhere is always fun, right? On Thursday, the 6th, I had an appointment with the doctor in Deland, […]

Road Trip!

I bought my Mustang EcoBoost in late November, and as I said then, it’s strictly a toy, not my daily driver. As of yesterday morning it still only had 450 miles on the odometer. So I decided it was time for a road trip! My friend Holli Marie Spaulding is in the process of opening […]

I have been called a lot of things in my life, some of them good and some of them bad. But nobody has ever accused me of being remotely gifted when it comes to technical things. People keep saying “Just Google it” when I’m trying to figure how to do something. But to do that […]

Now that we’ve had a chance to get some much needed rest, answer a ton of emails, and get some laundry done, I’ll use the next few blogs to get you caught up on our trip to Arizona. We knew we were going to eventually go to Tucson to get my cousin Beverly out of […]

Thank you to everybody who left blog comments and sent emails or messages about the return of my back problems. I had a rough night and woke up yesterday morning about 8 AM with the pain back in full force. I really don’t like to take heavy-duty pain meds, but every medical person I know […]

Ever since I first heard John Denver sing about West Virginia I always wanted to go there and see those beautiful mountains and green valleys he sang about. While I always enjoyed the man’s music, apparently the part of West Virginia that John Denver was familiar with wasn’t along US Highway 52. We’ve covered a […]

As I said in yesterday’s blog, we took a road trip to visit family and friends and do some genealogy research, along with gathering lots of stories about interesting places to visit for my blog readers. Rather than cram too much into one very long blog, I will be talking about the overall details of […]

No Immediate Plans

I wasn’t surprised that three or four people contacted me after reading yesterday’s blog to tell me they were so excited that Terry and I are going to be RVing again, at least on a part-time basis. Obviously they didn’t read the entire blog, or else they have short-term memory loss. I’m not sure which. So, […]

When we dropped our Winnebago off at PPL Motorhomes in Houston, Texas at the end of September, the rep who looked it over and did all of the consignment sale paperwork predicted it would sell within 45 days. 30 days later they took an offer on it and it was listed as Sale Pending. We […]

I don’t know if the stock market is up or down today because I’ve never been an investor. The way I look at it, I work hard enough for my money that I don’t care to hand it to somebody else so they can “manage” it for me. There’s a reason they call those guys […]
