The first time I met Miss Terry I was impressed not only with her beauty and her intelligence, but also the fact that she was an independent, capable woman who could do anything she set her mind to. In the 10 years or so that we were friends before we became a couple, and the […]

Anyone who knows my wife or who has read the blog for very long is well aware that Miss Terry loves the fiber arts. Spinning, weaving, crocheting, or knitting, she’s never happier than when she has her hands on wool, silk, or any other fiber. So when readers told us about the Mora Valley Spinning […]

Wow, I was really surprised by how much feedback I got from yesterday’s blog when I asked about readers’ experiences using Airbnb instead of staying in motels or hotels. Between blog comments, emails, and Facebook messages, over 30 of you responded, and everybody seemed to be very pleased with the places they have stayed using […]

Is It Monday?

For some reason it seemed like a very long weekend to both of us, and more than once we found ourselves checking our cell phones for the date or asking each other what day it was. I guess that’s one of the great things about being semi-retired. Except for the occasional doctor’s appointment, we don’t […]

Well, it was over a month behind schedule, but last night I finally hit publish on Mullets And Man Buns, my 4th John Lee Quarrels book. This is my 20th mystery novel, and my 30th book. Yep, I hit the big 3-0. It may be my ego talking, but I think that’s a bit of […]

When we were searching for our retirement home, we knew it had to be in a community located close to the beach. The beach is our place to go and let our souls relax from the cares of the world. It has a calming effect on both Terry and me like no place else. Plus, […]

It seems like the weather here in central Florida goes from one extreme to the other. Last week we had daytime temperatures in the mid-80s and now we have a cold front headed our way and the weatherman is saying it will bring rain with it and we will be lucky if we hit a […]

Okay, Enough Already!

We love our home here on Florida’s central coast. We really do. We’ve got plenty of room for all of our activities, from Terry’s huge weaving room to my snug little office, a garage that is large enough to hold all of our toys and then some, and we are just minutes from the beach. […]

Before I do anything else today, I want to wish my granddaughter Destiny happy birthday. Grandpa and Grandma Terry miss you sweetheart, but we will be seeing you again soon. So save up lots of hugs and kisses for us. Thank you to the people who posted comments or sent emails in response to yesterday’s […]

It has taken me a while to get used to my new Moto Z Play phone, but overall I’m very pleased with it. The camera is excellent, the battery life is amazing, and I get a better signal with it here in our fringe Verizon reception area than I did with my Samsung. There has […]
