Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog, a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t have anything else to talk […]

Okay, actually it was a big pair of vise grips, but it did the job, so who’s keeping score? I’ve been trying to track down the source of our intermittent electrical problem and had pretty much narrowed it down to our inverter. We have good strong power coming into the coach, so it’s not the […]

Looking Back At 2015

It’s over already? Wow, that was a fast year! They say that as we get older time goes faster, and I think that must be true. So what was 2015 like for us? We started the year in Florida at the Three Flags RV Resort in Wildwood, one of our favorite campgrounds in the Thousand […]

I Broke My Own Rule

Yesterday afternoon I broke my own self-imposed rule not to enter a big box store between Thanksgiving and the middle of January. To me, nothing spoils the Christmas spirit like fighting for a parking space so I can go into a store and fight a crowd of people to find stuff I really don’t need, […]

Plans And Strands

Yesterday was a busy day for us though we never left the motorhome. Which was fine because it was a rainy day and not really good for playing tourist anyway. I worked on book projects most of the day and well into the evening. The first order of business was uploading Big Lake Scandal, my […]

After reading yesterday’s blog in which I said that we would be leaving Bay View RV Resort in Rockport a day early because we weren’t happy with the poor condition of the campground, the lack of Verizon service, and the noise from the nearby pile driving machine, somebody commented to me that they couldn’t believe […]

A few months ago, I bought a Verizon LGE 4G MFi device, and I said a couple times that the jury is still out on it. Well the jury is back with a verdict, and it’s unanimous. It sucks! Whether we are in a 3G or 4G area, at least two or three times a […]

Me And Jimmy B.

My head hurts, my feet stink, and I don’t love Jesus. That’s the title of a song by Jimmy Buffett, arguably the best singer-songwriter in the world, in my humble opinion. After wandering around the Webster Flea Market half the day yesterday, I know exactly how Jimmy B feels, or least two thirds of it. […]

Taming The Dragon

As I’ve written before, I am developing a bit of arthritis in my hands, and sometimes after a long day at the keyboard, my fingers and knuckles just ache. A while back I started researching the Dragon speech to text software to see if that would make life easier for me. For Christmas, I bought […]

And Away We Go!

We’ve had all the fun we can have, or at least all the fun we have time to have, and today we plan to hit the road. There were a lot of things that we didn’t get done while we’ve been here in Florida, but we have to be in Yuma in mid-February to get […]

Campers And RVers

In the last few weeks, I’ve gotten quite a few e-mails from RV campers who think that they are RVers. I hate to burst their bubbles, but at the same time, I don’t want to be responsible for them thinking otherwise, or making costly mistakes. There is a difference between campers and RVers. I define […]

Yesterday was the last warm day we’ll probably have while we’re here in Florida. I think it topped out at 68 degrees. Starting today, the daytime temperatures are going to be in the 50s, with overnight lows in the mid-20s. I don’t think we’ll be here much longer; in just a few days we’ll be […]
