No, that wasn’t my output in my last writing marathon. Actually, I did 6,150 words on Sunday. But that’s not what I’m talking about. I am referring to the old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. And today, I am sharing some pictures of Miss Terry’s output, not mine. While I have […]

I have always enjoyed driving and I usually do most of it when we are on a trip. But after this trip, I may never drive again. Back on February 8, I was getting tired when we were about 100 miles from Phoenix and Miss Terry took the wheel. She is an excellent driver, whether […]

The hardest part of any visit with the people we love is saying goodbye. Especially as we get older and realize that any goodbye could be the last one. And so it was yesterday when it came time to leave our old hometown of Show Low, Arizona. We were up and all packed and had […]

I Lied

You may remember that in yesterday’s blog I said I was over the worst of my cold. As it turns out, I lied. Even though I was very tired when I went to bed Thursday night, I just could not seem to get to sleep. My back was hurting and I could not get comfortable, […]

Get your mind out of the gutter. The title of today’s blog has nothing to do with one of those “gentlemen’s clubs” where guys go to be anything but gentlemen.

Terry’s mom, Bess, turned 88 on February 2nd and her dad, Pete, turned 90 on the 11th. When you live that long you accumulate a lot of relatives, so family from as far away as England, New York, Colorado, Nevada, and Florida (us) came to Arizona to help them celebrate the occasion. In the last […]

Miss Terry and I spent more than 18 years traveling from border to border and sea to shining sea during our life as fulltime RVers, and when it was time to hang up the keys, we bought a house on Florida’s central coast. Why, you ask? What made us decide on Florida over other places […]

I appreciate everybody indulging me for the last week while I re-posted old blogs so I could spend time with my kids while they were here visiting from out of state. Now they’re gone and I’m back, and I’ve got a lot to share with you. In fact, it will take me a few days […]

My, How Time Flies

When I was a kid I always heard adults say that the older you get, the faster time goes by. I never understood that because it just didn’t make sense. A minute has 60 seconds in it, an hour has 60 minutes, a day has 24 hours, and a week has 7 days. It’s the […]

No, Thanks. I’m Good

A while back I wrote a blog post about a visit to my doctor and them giving me a chart with a food pyramid on it. I said then that the problem with that was that everything I like is on the wrong side of the pyramid, and the stuff I don’t like is what […]
