A Good Report

As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, Terry had an appointment at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville as a follow-up to her Interstim implant. We timed it just right, scoring a parking spot in the often crowded campus just a few feet from the door, stopping in the lobby to have our temperatures taken and answered […]

Because we had a long day yesterday, this will be a short blog today. Sorry about that. We were up early because we had to drive to Jacksonville for two appointments Miss Terry had at the Mayo Clinic. The weatherman had been predicting rain and the possibility of some severe storms in our area, part […]

I would love to be able to tell you that the first round of editing and proofing my new book is done and it’s off to the second proofreader today. That was the plan going into the weekend, but we discovered that when I narrated so much of the book into my digital recorder some […]

Today is a very special day for us. It’s our 22nd wedding anniversary. That’s right, this beautiful lady who shares my life e and makes it better in every possible way, has been putting up with my nonsense for over two decades now. Honestly, I don’t know how or why she does it. I know […]

From now on, you can call me Christopher, as in Christopher Columbus. You know, the guy who thought he was going one place and ended up somewhere else entirely and got credit for a discovery that he may or may not have been the first to stumble upon. Because I have made a discovery myself. […]

I am glad I got almost 10,000 words done in my new Big Lake book over the weekend because I needed to make some headway on it. I originally had hoped to have it done in December, but with all the running we had to do back and forth to the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville […]

Love Has No Boundaries

I witnessed something the other day that has stuck with me and reminds me that love really does know no boundaries. I thought I’d tell you about it today. I was in the waiting room at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville while Terry was in surgery and there were three people sitting near me, a man […]

First of all, thanks to so many of you who sent messages and emails wishing Terry well and hoping for a speedy recovery. 30 hours after her surgery we are home and she is doing fantastic. When she had her temporary implant done two weeks ago at Mayo, they gave her a prescription for 10 […]

Just A Quick One

We were up early Monday morning because we had to be at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville at noon for surgery to implant the permanent Medtronics Interstim device in Terry. We arrived about 45 minutes early and she got checked in but it was almost 1:30 before they took her to pre-op. At 2:15 they […]

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 woke up Friday morning to more messages from readers that they were getting the same damn Adobe Flash and Google Play popups when they tried to access the blog. I expected it, but had foolishly hoped the dweebs at Go Daddy would have actually done something for a change. Once again I called Go […]

As many of you know, we have been fighting with blog issues for weeks now. Sometimes it takes me four, or five, or six more times to get the blog to post, if at all. And when it does post, sometimes readers can’t get to it. Occasionally if they are using something like Microsoft Edge […]

Get your mind out of the gutter, that’s not what I mean. Today will be a quickie blog post because we were both worn out last night and I wasn’t up to writing anything more. We were up early Monday morning to make the 120 mile trip to the Mayo Clinic for the first procedure […]

Happy Thanksgiving everybody! Wherever you are and whoever you are with, I hope you have a wonderful time today. And whether you are a religious person or not, I hope you take a moment or two to reflect on all the things that we have to be thankful for. Yes, there is a lot of […]

Note: Because we have been in Jacksonville for the last three days while Terry underwent a series of tests and procedures at the Mayo Clinic and did not get home until late last night, I don’t have the energy to post the next in my recent series about our trip home from Ohio. So I […]

Thank you to everybody who has sent emails, texts, and Facebook messages expressing their concern for our safety with Hurricane Dorian approaching Florida, and with our various medical issues. We appreciate you. As far as the storm, we are watching it closely and are well-stocked with provisions if we get hit. If worse comes to […]

Between dealing with doctor and chiropractor appointments, a storm that knocked our Internet and cable TV out for hours, and dealing with the everyday chores of life, it’s been a little crazy around here lately. So I thought I would use today’s blog to play catch-up. Miss Terry has been plagued with terrible  IBS for […]
