In yesterday’s blog I said we would probably spend the day at home writing and weaving. That’s the way I saw it happening when I wrote that, but as it turned out I was lying through my tooth. Except for this blog I didn’t do any writing, Miss Terry did not do any weaving, and […]

We have been busy and getting a lot of things accomplished. That’s a good thing, right? At least, I hope it is, because I would not want to be doing all of this work for nothing. I seldom drive my 1999 Ford F-150, though it’s a great truck and I love it. We purchased it […]

Because we lost so much time running around to doctor appointments this last week, yesterday Miss Terry and Beverly spent most of yesterday proofing my new book, Sweet Tea And Jesus. With all of that done and the corrections made, I sent it off to my third and final proofreader. It won’t be long now, […]

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 […]

A Do-Nothing Day

Yesterday was pretty much a do-nothing day for me. I don’t know if I was still feeling the effects of my medical marijuana overdose, or if I was just lazy (which could very well be the case), but whatever the reason, I just didn’t have any energy or any interest in doing anything. I did […]

I had a secretary once who used to tell me I was an old stick in the mud because I wasn’t always quick to embrace new ideas and changes. Not that I wouldn’t consider them, but I’ve always felt that if something works, why mess with it? The baseball cap I wear on a regular […]

Whenever we can, we get off the interstate highways and travel the back roads of America. I’ve always said that a Grand Slam at a Denny’s in Paducah, Kentucky isn’t going to be any different than one at a Denny’s in Tucson, Arizona. And face it, just about every interstate highway exit in the country […]

How Did I Do That?

Since this is Sunday, normally I would include something in today’s blog telling you that it is your last chance to enter our weekly Free Drawing and that the winner would be drawn this evening. But somehow I managed to completely forget about the drawing this week. They usually begin on Thursday and run through […]

When we were in the process of furnishing our house I tried to rent a U-Haul trailer to avoid paying the delivery charges most of the local stores here have. That’s when I learned that if you have a Ford Explorer, you can’t rent a U-Haul trailer. Who knew? I guess it all goes back […]

When Terry and I first got interested in kayaks many years ago we bought two Native Watercraft sit-on-tops. They were great boats and we really liked them, but after we traded in the Ford van we had then on the Explorer, we had to put them on the roof of the SUV. That became a […]
