Oh, get your mind out of the gutter! When you’re as old and fat as me, nothing is ever quick. But today I thought I’d share three different quick stories from the Nick Happens files, which are a collection of my adventures and misadventures over the years. *** In our first trip in our motorhome, […]

Miss Terry and I spent more than 18 years traveling from border to border and sea to shining sea during our life as fulltime RVers, and when it was time to hang up the keys, we bought a house on Florida’s central coast. Why, you ask? What made us decide on Florida over other places […]

I know, in this day and age we are not supposed to call people names. But sometimes you just have to. Comedian Bill Engvall made a fortune with his Here’s Your Sign gig, so I guess if he could point out the stupid things people say and do, I’ll give it a try and see […]

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.

When we first got together Terry had a collection of beautiful antique Aladdin oil lamps. I don’t know how many she had, but it was enough to be impressive when you walked in the door of her cabin. And because we lived in the high mountains of Arizona, where winter storms sometimes knocked out power […]

Thanksgiving Day we left home sometime around 1:30 PM and drove 120 miles to Jacksonville, where we checked into the Hampton Inn on Beach Boulevard. This is where we prefer to stay when we are in town for an appointment at the Mayo Clinic. On our first visit to Mayo, a few weeks ago we […]

Note: I have already shared some of our activities while we were in Ohio and the trip there from Florida in previous blog posts. Now I will do several posts telling you a bit about our trip home. I have to keep reminding myself, with Terry’s help, that we are no longer working on the […]

Note: This is the second of three installments about our trip from Florida to Ohio. After a comfortable night at the Hampton Inn in Athens, Georgia, we took U.S. Highway 441 north, passing through a several small towns and some very pretty countryside.

Note: In honor of Halloween, this week I am sharing some eerie stories we discovered during our years as fulltime RVers. This story is from my book Highway History And Back Road Mystery. Just east of Raymond, Washington, on Highway 6, a historical marker stands near the grave of Willie Keil. Over the years untold […]

On a visit to the friendly little town of Palatka, Florida, made a stop at Elsie Bell’s, a wonderful antique mall filled with all kinds of interesting goodies from the past. If you’re looking […]
