Because we lost so much time running around to doctor appointments this last week, yesterday Miss Terry and Beverly spent most of yesterday proofing my new book, Sweet Tea And Jesus. With all of that done and the corrections made, I sent it off to my third and final proofreader. It won’t be long now, […]

One of the most valuable lessons I learned in college is that we train people how to treat us. A psychology professor called a young woman to the front of the class and complimented her on a paper she had turned in, telling her it was one of the best he had seen in several […]

We all hate them. Those annoying calls from someone that immediately launches into a spiel about the good news they have for you. They’re going to reduce your credit card debt, extend your car’s warranty, protect your investment in your house with pest control service, or whatever they are hustling. Most people just hang up […]

A while back I did a blog post titled 10 Gift Ideas For RVers, and judging by the feedback I got from them, I thought I would post some more. So here you go, 10 more Christmas gift ideas, and each of these costs under $15. We use, or have used, all of the products […]

Yesterday was a combination of sadness and happiness for us. Watching the news coverage of Hurricane Michael devastating the Florida Panhandle before moving into Georgia and causing even more damage was a terribly sad thing to see. Having dealt with two major hurricanes of our own in the last two years, we know the pain […]

Note: This story is from my book Highway History And Back Road Mystery. In St. Augustine Church, located in the tiny southern Indiana community of Leopold, is displayed a shrine with a unique history. Its story is one of love and redemption that grew out of a time of sorrow and despair. In the darkest […]

I wasn’t surprised to find out that I had ruffled some feathers, or maybe fur, when I said in yesterday’s blog that we made the choice to find a new home for my protection trained German Shepherd when we hit the road because he would not have been a good fit for the RV lifestyle. […]

Traveling along Interstate 65 in central Kentucky, it’s easy to appreciate the beautiful rolling hills, picturesque farms, and friendly small towns along the way. But many people don’t know that even more beauty is hidden beneath the earth’s surface. This is Cave Country, and the entire region is honeycombed with a series of caves, some […]

A blog reader new to the RV lifestyle wrote to me to stay that they have been really disappointed in the campgrounds they have been staying at because the sites are very close together. He said when he thought about RVing, he pictured them being parked along some beautiful lake or river in a quiet […]

We love exploring America’s back roads because you never know what hidden gem, lost in history, you’re going to find. At the intersection of State Routes 3 and 14 near Gloucester, Virginia, I spotted this cannon and the sign for Fort Nonsense Historical Park. Really? A fort named Nonsense? How could we not stop? During […]
