I enjoy getting emails and messages from people who read my books. It’s always nice to know that they are enjoying what I do. Sometimes they point out errors, and I have no problem with that. In fact, I appreciate it. If there’s a mistake, I want to correct it. A while back my daughter […]

My latest book, The Good Years, book two in the Tinder Street family saga, is now available as an e-book on Amazon. You can find it at this link. There were a few software missteps getting it ready to go, but my wonderful book formatter, Scarlett Braden, got it finished even though she’s in the […]

No, not a rocket launch at Cape Canaveral. SpaceX was supposed to launch a Falcon 9 rocket carrying 60 Starlink satellites on Thursday but the launch was scrubbed due to strong currents that would make it difficult for the company’s rocket landing platform to hold its position in the Atlantic Ocean. There was talk of […]

Back in late 2016, Terry and I both bought Moto Z Play smartphones. At the time, Terry was reluctant to give up her old flip phone and didn’t think she needed or wanted a smartphone. But it didn’t take her long to realize the benefits of the newer technology. As for me, I had already […]

I’m more of a McDonald’s kind of guy, though I have ventured into Burger King more than once in my life. And yesterday, we got a Whopper without even leaving the house. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the kind you eat, it was a whopper of a thunderstorm. It was late in the afternoon, and I was […]

No Time To Be Bored

In a blog a couple of days ago, I wrote about someone saying that she and her husband were bored and getting on each other’s nerves being cooped up all the time due to COVID-19. What’s that like? I don’t know what it’s like to be bored. I don’t think I have ever been bored. […]

It’s always a thrill to see a rocket lifting off from Cape Canaveral but we have lived here long enough that we don’t always keep track of when the launches are scheduled. I knew that there was one planned for sometime this week that had been delayed earlier because of weather, but it wasn’t until […]
