Years ago there was an episode on the old Happy Days television sitcom where clean-cut boy next door Richie Cunningham was challenged to a fight by some hoodlum. Richie sought advice from Arthur Fonzarelli (the Fonz) about how to handle the situation, and the advice he got was not to show any fear or nervousness, […]

With my new book finished, I’m already planning my next writing project and will be jumping headfirst into that soon. As for Big Lake Abduction, the one I finished on Tuesday evening, Miss Terry started proofreading it yesterday. She was laughing by the second page, so I hope that’s a good thing. I spent much […]

We needed to get out and have some fun yesterday, and boy did we get that accomplished, times two! We started the day with our usual routine of answering emails and checking a couple of our favorite blogs. Then we drove over to the Canaveral National Seashore in New Smyrna Beach. The place is a natural […]

After getting up early and being pretty much on the go constantly for the last week, yesterday we treated ourselves by sleeping in and then having a slower paced day. It was a nice change of pace. We checked our e-mail and read a few favorite blogs, I replied to several e-mails and messages that […]

Quiet Days

The life of fulltime RVers isn’t always all about traveling and sightseeing, exploring new places, meeting new friends, and making new memories. Sometimes we just have quiet days at home. And that’s nice, too. Yesterday was one of those quiet days that we appreciate so much. We slept in and then stayed in bed snuggling […]

A while back our friends Chris Dunphy & Cherie Ve Ard from Technomadia contacted me to invite me to check out a new project they’ve been helping develop called RVillage, but at the time I was involved in so many different things that I never did really did get to it. Since then the project […]

Congratulations to Russ and Debbie Davis, this week’s free drawing winners of two audiobooks, A Shot in the Bark and Drool Baby, by Carol Ann Newsome! We had 158 entries this week and if you haven’t won yet, stay tuned because another drawing starts soon. The storm passed on through Arizona sometime early yesterday morning, […]

Happy New Year to all of our friends and family. I hope 2014 is filled with much love, joy, and prosperity for all of you. I always think of a new year as a brand new notebook full of blank pages just waiting for me to fill them. What will those pages hold 365 days […]

I keep hoping that now that I have stopped using the Fluorouracil cream on my face things will start to get back to normal. And it is, but very slowly. At this point I just look like I have a really, really bad sunburn. The pain has eased up a lot, but due to my […]

A Lot Accomplished

Running our business on the road gives us a lot of freedom. We pretty much set our own schedule, we sometimes work hard for days in a row, then we take some time off to play or just relax. And since we’re not locked into a schedule, we don’t have to fight the weekend crowds […]

We Like Quiet Days

As much as we like traveling in our motorhome and seeing new places, and our hobbies like kayaking, geocaching, and kite flying, there’s something to be said for just having a quiet day at home, too. And that’s what yesterday was. It was a damp, gray morning, with the clouds hanging low in the sky. […]

A Not So Lazy Sunday

I got a telephone call yesterday morning from the Apple store to tell me they think they figured out what is wrong with my iMac. The young lady said they replaced the CD/DVD drive again and the cable for it, and then they decided that the circuit board that my RAM plugs into is bad. […]

We were having dinner with RVing friends Stu and Donna McNicol and Greg and Jan White, and during our conversation the names of other fulltimers we knew came up several times. Later, driving home from the restaurant, Jan said that it was surprising how many people we knew in common. That’s one of the many […]

Getting Some Work Done

I spent most of yesterday getting some work done. Actually, I got a lot of work done. At least by the end of the day, I felt like I had been working. Of course my work never involves any kind of physical labor if there is any way at all to avoid it. And since […]

It was so cold yesterday morning that neither one of us was in a hurry to get out of bed. If this is a preview of things to come, I think it’s going to be a long cold winter. Fortunately for us, we plan to be in Florida for a good part of the winter. […]

Yesterday was a slow day here at the Blue Ox factory campground in Pender, Nebraska. But I don’t know if they have a lot of busy days in Pender. The folks we have met here in town same to move at a more laid-back pace, which is just fine with us. We were awakened early […]

The Art Of Being Lazy

I spent yesterday practicing being lazy, and I think I’m getting pretty good at it. I did not do one bit of work all day long. I could get used to this life. Well, at least until the money runs out and I have to go back to work. But I think if we really […]

The wind blew hard all Friday night, and Saturday morning was cold, gray, and rainy. Miss Terry had talked about going to the Mesa Marketplace indoor swap meet, but the more she looked out the window the more she decided it would be a good day to stay home and practice with her sock making […]

We were up early yesterday morning and after spending some time checking e-mails, replying to the most pressing ones, and checking some of our favorite RV blogs, we started getting ready for the last segment of our trip to Tucson. It was a very chilly morning but since we had only plugged in the electrical […]

How Do You Get Online?

I had an e-mail from a couple who are three months into their new fulltime RV lifestyle and have quickly become discouraged with the often unreliable RV park WiFi systems they have encountered. They said that the service has ranged from free to paid, with the only common denominator being that it never seems to […]
