No, I’m not talking about my prostate. Though at my age, maybe I should be. The piddling I’m talking about are chores around the house, and we seem to be knocking them out on a daily basis in preparation for my kids getting here on Friday. Yesterday it was screen doors. We have two of […]

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. You said your daughter is flying in to visit you. As I recall […]

Before I do anything today, I want to wish my buddy Greg White a very happy birthday. Why do I think this picture of myself and Greg should be captioned, “What, me worry?” I wish we could be there to spend the day with you, buddy. We are sure looking forward to you and Jan […]

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, […]

Visitors to Dover, Delaware can escape the world of smart phones and tablet computers for a while and experience a bit of the “good old days” at the Johnson Victrola Museum. Housed in a neat old red brick building, the museum showcases the work of Eldridge Reeves Johnson, who founded the Victor Talking Machine Company, […]

Except for vegetables. I hate those darn things. Oh, and scuba diving. I won’t do that. I saw Jaws. Or craft beer. I don’t drink any kind of alcohol, but if I did, it would not be some kind of snooty craft beer. Nope, it would have to be Budweiser or Coors. A working man’s […]

Our reasons for being in the Cincinnati area were threefold, to do some book promotion, to meet with my author friend Carol Ann Newsome for a discussion on books and publishing projects, and to do some genealogy research. We started the day we were scheduled to meet Carol Ann by visiting a place called Monmouth Street […]

A Reprieve For Steve

Well, I had hoped that by now Steve the computer would be a piece of gutted history collecting dust on a shelf in the garage, or better yet on its way to a recycling place or wherever condemned computers go when they die. But Steve’s going to get a reprieve, at least for a little […]

We were supposed to get a lot of rain yesterday and since we have been busy for several days in a row, Terry and I decided to just have a laid-back stay-at-home do-nothing day. That was the plan. But you know what they always say – if you want to hear God laugh, just make […]

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you Moms out there! I hope you have a wonderful day, surrounded by lots of love. If you have not called your Mom to tell her you love her yet today, go do it right now. She’s waiting to hear from you. My own dear mother has been gone […]
