Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog, a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t have anything else to talk […]

I think all travelers, whether they do it by RV, automobile, or airplane, have a bucket list for the destinations they visit. At least I know we did during our 18 years as fulltime RVers, and so do my kids when they come to visit us. One thing on everybody’s bucket list was to get […]

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 […]

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 […]

After spending a few hours making the last corrections suggested by my proofreaders, at 3:43 yesterday afternoon I hit Publish on Dead Romeos, my seventh John Lee Quarrels mystery and my 38th book. It came in at 85,225 words, making it my third longest book, with only Big Lake Lynching at 100,113 words and Black […]

As most of you know, Terry and I are night owls. We seldom get to bed before 1:30 or 2 AM, then we usually lay there and cuddle for a few minutes, maybe half an hour, before we kiss each other goodnight and go to sleep. That was our routine Tuesday night. It was about […]

Are you sitting down? If not, I suggest you do so before you read on. And I don’t really recommend drinking anything hot or cold while you read the blog today, either. These announcements are made for your own safety. Back in November, 2017, Terry and I bought a pair of Old Town Predator kayaks […]

Our two Honda EU2200i generators weigh 46.5 pounds empty, and when you add almost a gallon of gasoline, which weighs about 6 pounds, they far exceed the 25 pounds my doctor told me I should limit myself to with my bad back. So moving them around and taking them outside to use is problematic. We […]

Miss Terry and I were friends for many years before there was ever any romantic involvement between us. She told me once that after a bad marriage, she had been single for 14 years, because Mr. Right never came along. Apparently, I am Mr. Right, because once we did make a connection on more than […]

As I write this, a little before midnight on Wednesday, I keep thinking about the fact that when I wrote my blog 24 hours ago, Hurricane Dorian was bearing down on us and we didn’t know what the night might bring. What it brought was a lot of wind and a lot of rain, but […]
