If you are a football fan, especially college football, no trip to Alabama should be complete without a stop at the Paul W. Bryant Museum on the campus of the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. Known simply as Bear to his legions of fans and former players, Bryant was almost a mythical figure to those […]

Terry wanted me to pass along her thanks to all of you who sent her birthday greetings through blog comments, emails, texts, and Facebook messages. You really helped make her day special. For the last week or two I kept asking her what she wanted to do for her birthday, and she said the thing […]

Today we are celebrating Terry’s birthday, and though she modestly says it’s just another day, it’s a very special day. Who knew that that little baby born in Newton, Kansas would grow up to become the most beautiful woman in the world? And not just beautiful, but also strong, caring, intelligent, talented in so many […]

Among the several interests that we share with my son Travis and his wife Geli is that we love exploring back roads and seeking out hidden gems that are all too often overlooked by the rest of the world. While we were visiting them in Alabama recently, they took us to an interesting place not […]

I’m an eavesdropper. Some might say it’s because I’m nosy, but I justify it by saying that as an author, some of the best story ideas you get are based upon some overheard snippet of conversation. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! But sometimes you hear things that make it very hard to […]

After reading the blog post about our encounter with an armed burglar in our motorhome that I linked to in yesterday’s blog, three different people emailed to ask me why I didn’t shoot the burglar once I disarmed him and he was running away. The simple answer is, he was running away. He was no […]

One of the good things about publishing the Gypsy Journal and this blog is that I was always being offered products to try out, with the manufacturer hoping for a good review. Of course, when I told them that if I liked the item I would tell the world why, but if I thought it […]

We spent several hours at the rehab facility with Beverly yesterday as they put her through her paces and showed us how much progress she has made since her major surgery last week, and explained what the follow-up plan is when she is released from the hospital next week.

With everything that has been going on in our lives lately there has not been a lot of time for writing or weaving, or much of anything else. But while Beverly has been in the hospital things are not quite as busy. We make the trip over to see her two or three times a […]

Most of us have experienced it a time or two in our lives, some of us more often than others. I call it the spidey sense. That feeling that something just isn’t right, though we can’t figure out what is wrong or why we are feeling that way. I’ve learned to be aware and heed […]
