In a blog post the other day titled Finally Got It Wet, I wrote about our first outing with our Bennington pontoon boat. I also shared that while our time on the water was very nice, we ran into a problem once we had the boat loaded onto the scissor trailer and inside our garage. […]

If One Is Good…

If acquiring one antique console radio is good, getting two of them must be better, right? At least, that’s how I planned to explain it to Miss Terry. As I wrote in a recent blog post titled Radios And More Radios!, I have been looking for a nice old console radio to put in my […]

I guess if you raise enough hell on social media and in a blog it gets things done, since yesterday we received our long awaited refund from SimpliSafe for the alarm system we returned weeks ago. It’s about time. The refund will just about cover the cost of all the material we bought to finish […]

And The Winner Is…

In a blog post a few weeks ago titled What To Do? What To Do?, I said I was trying to decide whether to buy my wife’s husband a red Mustang fastback or a pontoon boat for Valentine’s Day. Apparently not everybody gets my sense of humor or could read between the lines, because three different […]

The title of today’s blog says it all. After months of trying to get our SimpliSafe home security system to work, more calls to their tech support people that I could begin to count, where they insisted I jump through one hoop after another, replacing the network card, and trying four or five different base […]

I get a lot of questions from blog readers, and while I try to answer all of them individually, occasionally I like to share some with the folks here. It’s been a while, but here are some of the latest. Q. A friend told me something about diesel fuel with red dye in it and […]

I got an email yesterday from a long time RVing friend saying that he was reminded of my blog post a week or so ago titled Info RVers Can Use, in which I talked about having a magnetic Hide-A-Key somewhere on your RV so you could get back in if you ever lock yourself out. […]

The Snowbirds Are Back

Traffic is heavier on the local roads, stores are busier, and restaurants that we used to be able to walk right into and get a table now have waiting times to be seated. Yes indeed, the snowbirds are back in Florida. Some people who live here year round grumble about that, but the business community […]

Oops, I Goofed!

Blog reader Randy McRae sent me an email yesterday asking me why there was no free drawing this week. Randy thought it was because of the holiday, but the truth is I goofed and just completely forgot about it. Sorry about that. I’ll get back on track for next week. This last week was really […]

Do you remember when I said in yesterday’s blog that after I got my latest book, Big Lake Snowdaze, out how I planned to goof off for a couple of weeks? I’m not sure how that’s going to work out. As it turns out, I don’t do leisure well. Yesterday morning I gave the new […]
