Today is Miss Terry’s birthday, and I want to wish her a wonderful day, because she makes every day of my life so very wonderful. I love you, baby.

It’s been in the mid-90s the last few days, and with everybody running their air conditioners the power here at the Elks lodge campground has been flakey, dropping down to 104 volts, which causes our Progressive Industries Electrical Management System to kick out. That’s what it is designed to do, to protect our coach from damage from low voltage, and more than once it has protected us from damage. But I sure wish it would cool down a bit.

Yesterday morning I did an online interview with a self-publishing blogger, and we were talking about how writing and blogging can put one in the public eye. She asked me if that was flattering, and I said of course it is. Just not always, only when people tell you they like what you write. She also asked if people sometimes form an opinion about you based upon what they perceive from your writing. I guess so. A few years ago we met a couple of people who had been longtime readers, and the wife said, “You’re not at all what I expected.” I asked her if it was better or worse, and her response was, “I pictured a tall, handsome man!”

During the afternoon we escaped from the heat inside the motorhome to make a run to the post office to mail off some orders, and then stopped at Safeway to pick up a few things. When we got home the heat had taken its toll on me so I took a nap.

When I woke up I posted a new Bad Nick blog titled Take Off The Blinders, about how things are not always what they seem at first glance. Check it out and leave a comment.

Speaking of Bad Nick, my new Bad Nick book is now available on Barnes & Noble for Nook owners.

There had been a stiff breeze all afternoon, and about 8:30 p.m. the wind really began to blow hard, with gusts over 40 miles per hour. People were scrambling to put up their awnings and visibility dropped from all the sand blowing around. Our neighbors have left their fifth wheel here while they are off somewhere for a few days and the vinyl cover that snaps around the front had come partway off and was blowing in the wind. I snapped it back in place, only to have the wind whip it right back off again. I tried again and with the same results, and snapped it back on a third time. Within a minute or two it was off again. We finally took it off, folded it up, and stashed it next to the RV weighted down by some folded up lawn chairs. Even sandwiched between two fivers parked close on either side, our motorhome were rocking and rolling. I’m sure glad we weren’t out on the highway!

Today we’re going to take a day trip up into the mountains to Avon, to visit Terry’s twin sons Casey and Cody, and for her to meet her new twin grandbabies Peter and Althea. You can bet she’s looking forward to that!
