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. In January we purchased a new 2019 Fleetwood Discovery 44 foot diesel motorhome […]

If you are driving from the Georgia state line all the way south to Key West, Florida is about 500 miles long. But east to west, at its widest point it’s only 160 miles. Yeah, it’s a narrow state. Which is good because we made the round-trip from coast-to-coast yesterday. When we first met, Miss […]

Best Steak Ever!

Terry is a very low maintenance woman, so when I asked her what she wanted to do for her birthday and she said nothing special, it was just another day, I wasn’t surprised. But we had to do something, right? We’re not really into giving each other gifts for birthdays and holidays and such because […]

If One Is Good…

If acquiring one antique console radio is good, getting two of them must be better, right? At least, that’s how I planned to explain it to Miss Terry. As I wrote in a recent blog post titled Radios And More Radios!, I have been looking for a nice old console radio to put in my […]

In a blog post a while back, I said I was looking for an old floor model console radio to put in my office. When I was a kid I loved those old radios and when I was in high school, old console and table model radios were everywhere and you could pick them up […]

When we were in the process of furnishing our house I tried to rent a U-Haul trailer to avoid paying the delivery charges most of the local stores here have. That’s when I learned that if you have a Ford Explorer, you can’t rent a U-Haul trailer. Who knew? I guess it all goes back […]

Happy New Year everybody! I hope this year brings you lots of love, health, happiness, and adventure. I always think of the first day of a new year like I’m opening a new book full of blank pages. I wonder what those pages will hold this time next year? In yesterday’s blog I told you […]

Florida Is Still Here

I have received quite a few e-mails from RV snowbirds wanting to know if I think they’ll be able to come to Florida for the winter as they had planned, due to the problems from Hurricane Irma. Yes, come on down. Florida is still here and open for business. While some areas got hit worse […]

It took me a while to get back into my current work in progress, Big Lake Tragedy, but once I did it started rolling along very well. In the last three days I’ve done close to 8,000 words. So I was ready for a break yesterday, and when we found an exercise bike Terry was […]

Sometimes part of my job is bursting somebody’s bubble. I really don’t like doing it, but I guess somebody has to. One such example was an e-mail I received the other day from a very nice couple who have been reading the blog for a long time. They are weekend campers and have a pop-up […]

We Are Finished!

By shopping at used furniture and consignment stores, and on Craigslist, we were able to completely furnish our new home quicker than we thought, and considerably under the budget we had set. The only things we still were not happy with were the refrigerator and the electric range that came with the place. Both had […]

Well, I Did It!

Okay, call me a liar. I said I wasn’t going to do it, and I really meant it. I had no intention of going into any big box store until after the holidays. I don’t tolerate the crowds very well and the commercialism turns me off. But I did it. At least I’ve got a […]

A few days ago I updated and reposted a blog on working on the road, and ended it by saying that I would post a blog on ways you can make money with your computer as you travel. These are just a few ways to earn a buck or two with a computer. More to […]

I can’t find my underwear. No, I didn’t get drunk and crazy at the office Christmas party and do something stupid, mainly because I don’t drink, it’s not Christmas yet, and I’m the only person in my office. But somehow in the move from the motorhome to the house I managed to lose all but […]

It’s Finally Empty!

Well, the motorhome is finally empty and everything has been moved into the house. Now if we could just figure out where to put all of it! At this point we have some stuff put away, but a lot more is stacked up here and there, kind of like airplanes in a holding pattern at […]

My old man used to always say that we are all crazy in our own way, and as long as your crazy and my crazy don’t clash too much, we’ll get along just fine. My career as a small town newspaper publisher, along with some years working in law enforcement, convinced me that Dad was […]

A Lazy Birthday

Thank you everybody for the birthday wishes yesterday! I tried to reply to everyone individually, but there were nearly 600 on Facebook, not to mention over 100 e-mails. I would have to hire an assistant to get to everybody. You all really made me feel very special. So how did I spend my birthday? Dinner […]
