When I offered to take Miss Terry out for dinner yesterday in honor of Mother’s Day, I already knew that she would tell me no. Terry doesn’t like a big fuss made over her, and her idea of a good day is to spend it at home with the people she loves. And it was […]

What did I do yesterday? Darned near nothing, and I don’t feel the least bit guilty about it. I don’t think either one of us realized how tired and worn out we really were, but with nothing we had to do and nowhere we had to be yesterday, we stayed in bed even later than […]

I have received a number of emails and messages wanting to know when my new John Lee Quarrels book, Sweet Tea And Jesus, will be out. It’s with the final proofreader and I expect to get back from her at any time. As soon as she does, I will make any final corrections she pointed […]

A couple of miles north of the friendly small town of Franklin, Kentucky, we came across a unique looking home with a fascinating history. Octagon Hall, which is listed on the Register of Historic Places, was built by a gentleman by the name of Andrew Jackson Caldwell, following the style of octagon shaped houses that […]

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 […]

Even though he is retired and doesn’t have to, my buddy Jim Lewis is one of those freaks of nature who insists on getting up in the hours in the morning that only have one digit in them. I keep telling him that nothing good ever happens before 10 AM, but when I do, Jimmy […]

She’s At It Again!

If you think Miss Terry is a happy camper, you’re right. With the mailing out of the way, it’s weaving time. It’s been too long since she’s had time to work on her loom so she spent yesterday warping a new project onto her loom that’s she’s been looking forward to getting busy on. When […]

I was the youngest of my parents’ eight children and I am the only one still alive. Over time I had lost touch with my brother Jack’s sons and daughter, who all live here in Florida. When I got into genealogical research a few years ago, I managed to reconnect with them, and the next […]

Road Trip To Frankfort

Terry is really hooked on the fiber arts, and for a long time now she has been drooling over a website for a place called The Woolery, located in Frankfort, Kentucky. Terry said they have anything and everything that the knitter, hooker, weaver, or spinner could ever want or need. (Get your mind out of […]

After saying our goodbyes to Dennis and Irma, the managers at Crossroads RV Park in Wells, Nevada, we left yesterday morning at 10 a.m. and drove east on Interstate 80. We only had 180 miles to go, so it was an easy day on the road. Terry loves taking pictures as we travel, and she’s […]
