Rained Out In Webster

Just as it has for so much of this winter, yesterday the weather put a crimp in our plans. Again. Several years ago when we were in Florida, we went to the big Webster Flea Market, which is held every Monday, and Miss Terry really enjoyed browsing all of the vendors, and searching for bargains […]

After all of the fun and activity of my family reunion on Saturday, we had a lazy Sunday. Just as I promised in yesterday’s blog, we slept in late, then spent most of the day in the motorhome, just taking it easy. Every once in a while, a day like that is good for everybody. […]

We can tell it’s a holiday weekend, because the traffic is terrible in this little mountain community as people escape the heat of the desert and come up here to cool off. Up until now, besides the campground host, we have usually been sharing the Elks campground with only  one or two other RVs. But […]

This is our last day in Apache Junction, or AJ, as the community is known locally. The last six weeks have gone by in a blur, and while we are more than ready to scratch our bad case of hitch itch, we wish we had more time to spend with Terry’s parents and sisters, who […]

I got an e-mail yesterday from a couple who bought a new motorhome last year and have been unhappy with it ever since. They said that both the dealer from whom they bought the coach and the manufacturer have both refused to address their complaints. This is not uncommon, and it is part of the […]

After reading yesterday’s blog, someone wrote that I had better have thick skin, because I might be hearing from a lot of folks with ADD kids. That’s what my problem is, thick skin. I may look chubby to you, but actually I’m so darned skinny I’m almost anorexic. I just have all this darned thick […]
