Is That Blue Sky?

Is it true? Could it be possible? Was that really blue sky we saw overhead yesterday? If so, it was the first time in the week we’ve been parked here at Elkhart Campground.

Not that it was a nice day by any means; a cold wind blew hard all day long, rattling our slide toppers and rocking the motorhome on its leveling jacks. I don’t know what Mother Nature has in store for us today – when I took the trash out about 10 last night the wind had died down, but clouds were beginning to cover the sky again.

Miss Terry spent part of the day at the campground’s laundromat, because we were down to one pair of underwear between us and it was either that or flip a coin to see who was going to have to go commando.

I spent most of the day working on my next Big Lake book. For a while there I was kind of stalled and couldn’t move forward, which has not happened to me before with the series. So I went back and read what I have so far from the start, and it seemed to get my creative juices flowing again and I jumped back into it. By the time I stopped I had managed another 2,000 words or so.

Today my cousin Berni Frees is supposed to stop by for a visit and we’re really looking forward to it. Berni is always fun to be with and it’s nonstop laughter whenever we get together.

We were also looking forward to seeing our pals Greg and Jan White at Escapade next week, but as Greg wrote in his blog the other day, a medical issue has delayed their departure from Texas and they won’t be able to make it. We’re sending lots of prayers Jan’s way, and we look forward to hanging out with them when they do get here. It’s been way too long since we’ve seen them.

Today is your last chance to enter our Free Drawing for an audiobook of The Last Call, the first book in my pal George Weir’s excellent Bill Travis Mystery series. All you have to do is click on the Free Drawing link and enter your name in the comments section at the bottom of that page (not this one).

The winner will be drawn this evening.


Thought For The Day – I got in touch with my inner self today. That’s the last time I buy one-ply toilet paper from the dollar store.

  1. “it was either that or flip a coin to see who was going to have to go commando.”

    Come on Nick, who are you trying to kid here? Nick in Miss Terry’s underwear? Sorry, I just can’t imagine that one (or do I want to try). LOL

  2. Your thought for the day could be applied to toilet paper for RVs! Now we use good T.P. and just don’t flush, but dispose in an air tight container….

  3. sending prayers and good thoughts via you Nick for speedy recovery for what ever the problem is with Greg and Jan, please when you see them give them a hug from me. Solution to underwear problem is go to wally world and by more. Had to do that not to long ago since both were sick and could not get to the laundry. We are in Ok for the next two night and boy they wind sure is howling and we are going to be rocking and rolling.
