Among the things my daughter Tiffany wanted to do while she was here, besides eating lots of seafood, was to see a cruise ship and a lighthouse. No problem, kid, got you covered. One day we drove down to Port Canaveral, where you can always see a cruise ship or two. Some of them are […]

I appreciate everybody indulging me for the last week while I re-posted old blogs so I could spend time with my kids while they were here visiting from out of state. Now they’re gone and I’m back, and I’ve got a lot to share with you. In fact, it will take me a few days […]

There is an old saying that life imitates art. It implies that events in the real world are inspired by a creative work, be it a painting, a book, or a movie. I’m not sure about that, though I have been surprised a few times when something I wrote about in one of my books […]

She Calls it Piddling

When she doesn’t have any big project to do and is just catching up on little chores around the house, researching things on the Internet, or whatever, Miss Terry calls it piddling. I’m never sure if I should stand back and let her do her thing, or go to the drugstore and buy some Depends, […]

I imagine by now you are probably tired of hearing about Hurricane Dorian. But trust me, after 10 or 12 days of hearing about it nonstop on the local news, and all the preparations we have made in advance of the storm, nobody is more tired of it than we are. Yesterday was the calm […]

Way Too Early

I’m a night owl, not a morning dove, so when the alarm clock rang at 6:15 yesterday morning, all I wanted to do was shut it off and go back to sleep. That’s just way too early. But Beverly had an appointment with a neurosurgeon in Daytona Beach at 8:30 so that was out of […]

A Short One Today

We hit the ground running yesterday morning and were on the go all day long, getting back late in the evening, so this is going to be a short blog today. Yesterday we drove into Daytona Beach and picked up some more cannabis oil at Surterra, the medical marijuana dispensary. In yesterday’s blog I said […]

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 […]

Day Trip to Daytona

Except for a brief outing for dinner on Sunday, we haven’t been away from the house very much, if at all, in a week or so. Which meant my appointment with the VA medical center yesterday gave us an excuse to spend the day in Daytona Beach. There are two basic routes to get to […]

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 […]
