Tired Of This Nonsense

Back in late 2016, Terry and I both bought Moto Z Play smartphones. At the time, Terry was reluctant to give up her old flip phone and didn’t think she needed or wanted a smartphone. But it didn’t take her long to realize the benefits of the newer technology. As for me, I had already […]

Friday Q&A

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 […]

What Day Is It?

Am I the only one losing track of the days? As I was writing today’s blog, I planned to tell people that today was their last chance to enter our free drawing and that the winner would be drawn Sunday evening. Then I thought, “didn’t I write that last night?” Yes, I did, on Saturday […]

I Am A Racist

My Mama didn’t raise me this way, and I know my Dad must be very disappointed in me, but it turns out I’m a racist. I cannot tell you how disappointed I was in myself when I got the news yesterday. I honestly never knew. This apparently stems from yesterday’s blog, when I mentioned a […]

Terry and I were talking about this whole self-isolation thing last night. Except for a couple of trips to the grocery store and one to our accountant’s office in mid-April, we have not left the house except for one afternoon when we spent a couple of hours alone on a fishing pier. Nobody’s been in […]

Bored? Not Us!

Every time I go to Facebook I see posts from people who are complaining about being bored because they are shut in due to the Covid-19 restrictions. Terry and I were discussing that last night, and we just can’t relate to what they are talking about. For us, it’s life as usual, with a few […]

How are you handling being self-quarantined? I assume you are all self-quarantined, unless you have a job that requires you be out and about, or you have to go to a medical appointment or to get groceries. There is no excuse for it otherwise. As for us, we are doing just fine. I keep hearing […]

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 […]

Thank you to everybody who sent text messages and posted on Facebook wishing me well during my procedure yesterday. Everything went fine and now we just wait for the results. We had to be at the hospital at 6:30 in the morning for my biopsies and neither one of us got much sleep the night […]

From Pinkos To Flakes

In my blog a week ago today titled A Couple Of Pinkos, I shared with you that Terry and I both got sunburns while we were down at our community swimming pool. I am a fair skinned, blue-eyed guy and I have always sunburned very easily, and some of them have been horrendous. This one […]

RVers love blogging! These electronic newsletters provide us with a way to share our traveling adventures with our friends and families back home, and to keep in touch with other RVers we meet along the way. It’s also a diary of our daily lives  and a way to look back  on our adventures. Blogs allow […]

We’ve all heard somebody say you can’t make this stuff up when they come across something that seems so bizarre it can’t be real, but it happens all the time. Sometimes it’s not the things that happen, but the things you hear. Things that make you say, huh? Here are some examples we have heard […]

Today’s The Day!

When I get this close to the end of a book and the whole story is coming together, I don’t want to stop. I feel like a marathon runner that’s just seen the finish line. Okay, I made that part up. I have no idea what a marathon runner would feel like, and I don’t […]

Sometimes I want to find the person that invented the Internet and poke his eyes out. Does anybody know where Al Gore is hanging out these days? Yeah, yeah, I know he didn’t say exactly that, but somebody somewhere had to come up with the idea, and whoever that person is, I hate him (or […]

After all of the bad weather we had on Thursday, Friday dawned with blue skies and chilly temperatures. And wind. Lots of wind. But that’s okay, we weren’t driving an RV anywhere so we didn’t have to worry about that too much. It was a very busy day for us. It started out with somebody […]

Frustration City

My driver’s license may say I live in Edgewater, Florida, but yesterday I felt like I spent much of the day in Frustration City. That’s not a pleasant place to be, and I’m not a pleasant person to be around when I’m stuck there. The day started off on a bad note when I stepped […]

This Is Scary

We have all heard and used the term “Big Brother is watching” more than once. And while I’m not a conspiracy theorist, sometimes it’s scary just how much of what we do seems to be monitored by somebody, somewhere. All of us have had the experience of looking at something on the Internet and then […]

Happy Birthday Terry!

This is a very special day at our house because it is Miss Terry’s birthday. I won’t tell you how old she is, because I guess ladies aren’t supposed to want you to do that. But I will say that if she was a highway going from Chicago to LA, we’d all be getting our […]

With Miss Terry busy editing and proofing my new Big Lake mystery, yesterday was a catch-up day for me as I tried to get a handle on the emails and other things I had set aside during the push to get the book done. I got quite a bit accomplished, but not nearly as much […]

Not Feeling It

I know everybody is full of the Christmas spirit right now, busy shopping and wrapping presents and making plans for being with family or friends for the holiday. But here at our house, we are not really feeling it. We are just looking forward to all the holiday hype and hysteria being over with so […]
