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 […]

Homeward Bound

We spent five days in Tuscaloosa, Alabama with my son Travis and his wife Geli, touring the area for blog fodder and introducing people at libraries and stores to my books. But all good things must come to an end, and before we knew it was time to head home to Florida. We left Wednesday […]

It had been way too long since we had seen my son Travis and his pretty wife Geli, so we decided a road trip was in order to remedy that situation. What the heck, any road trip anywhere is always fun, right? On Thursday, the 6th, I had an appointment with the doctor in Deland, […]

Right now I feel like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, clicking my heels together and saying “there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home.” We just got home from a week-long trip to see my son Travis and his pretty wife Geli in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. It was a fun and busy week, […]

A Reprieve For Steve

Well, I had hoped that by now Steve the computer would be a piece of gutted history collecting dust on a shelf in the garage, or better yet on its way to a recycling place or wherever condemned computers go when they die. But Steve’s going to get a reprieve, at least for a little […]

In yesterday’s blog we did some time traveling as I told you about some of the things we did while we were in Alabama visiting my son Travis and his wife Geli as we were waiting out Hurricane Irma. Today I’ll catch you up on the rest of it, and on our trip home. Anybody […]

In yesterday’s blog I told you about coming home to the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, spending time in our Winnebago motorhome while we waited for the power to be restored, and showed you some photos of the damage in our little subdivision here on the Intercoastal Waterway in central Florida. Today we’re going to do […]

Reluctant Evacuees

Nobody really knows where Hurricane Irma is headed, but things aren’t looking good for Florida. As of last night they said there is a very good chance it would come up the east coastline, which puts us right in its path. We had planned on leaving Saturday to go up to Tuscaloosa, Alabama for my […]

We Are Home!

Thank you all for your prayers and concern in the last few weeks. It was a very rough trip in many ways. My daughter Tiffany is home and doing well after having a defibulator implanted. She coded twice and the nurses told us they were sure they were going to lose her, but they got […]

Déjà Vu

Terry and I had a sense of déjà vu as we drove through Shreveport and Bossier City and then on across Louisiana. Didn’t we just take this route in our Winnebago motorhome a month earlier when we returned home from our aborted trip out west? Oh yeah, I remember it well! Anytime I drive Interstate […]
