In response to my mention in yesterday’s blog that I have been called for jury duty in August, several people asked if I was to try to get out of it because of COVID-19. I don’t know that I can get out because of that, but since they are holding trials, apparently not. I tried […]

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. We have a 24 foot Class C motorhome now, and we tow a […]

When you get to be my age, losing people becomes a part of life. For me, it started early with the murder of my brother Frank when I was just 16, and it wasn’t much longer before Vietnam claimed quite a few of my friends. Both of my parents passed on when I was in […]

I stole the title to today’s blog from my favorite singer of all time, Jimmy Buffett (who is followed closely by Billy Joel). If you haven’t heard the song, here is a YouTube link to it. I think it’s a message we all need right now. My email and newsfeeds and Facebook are all blowing […]

I have heard from quite a few people about the coronavirus and how they are reacting to it. It seems like some people are ignoring it completely, thinking it’s just the media crying wolf again, while other people without any symptoms are self-quarantining themselves in their RVs or homes and avoiding the public as much […]
