You Could Be A Star!

You may have noticed that the blog has looked  a little different the last couple of days and the links may not be working properly. Monday something crashed at Go Daddy, where my blogs are hosted, and it took a while to get them back up. Only later that night, when I tried to post the blog, did I find out that it was giving me log in errors. Two hours of fighting with it allowed me to finally post, but the links and photos are not working right. Greg is working on getting things back to normal now.

I got an e-mail yesterday from a fellow named Glenn Somodi asking me if I knew anybody who might want to appear in a new reality show on cable TV. Glenn wrote, “We don’t want just anybody, we want a fun-loving RV couple that laughs, jokes and has a personality anyone would love to be around. You must be a mature couple who own/have owned an RV or have experience with the RV lifestyle. You must have no medical conditions that would preclude you from traveling, or demonstrating any RV products. You must have the time to travel (you will be compensated for your time and expenses).” I don’t know anything else about him or the program, but you can find out more at

It’s true what you’ve heard, getting old isn’t all bad. As I wrote a while back, Terry turned 62 last month and applied for Social Security, and I will reach that age in October and I just applied. That magic number also means that our Thousand Trails dues are now frozen for life. I called Member Services yesterday and told them Terry had turned 62 and the nice lady put me on hold for a couple of minutes, then came back and said it was taken care of. How cool is that?

Good news out of Texas! The Escapees RV Club sent out a news release yesterday saying that state legislators have recognized that the recent decision requiring all vehicles registered in the state having to be inspected prior to renewing their registration would place an undo hardship on RVers and others who are out of state, and are amending things to allow travelers to renew while on the road wait until they return to the state to have the inspection done.

I have some interesting books to tell you about today. My friend Mike Meyer has a new fun little title, The Sir Rodney Vignettes: Literary Laughter that is available for only 99¢ on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple, and Kobo.

If you like some chills with your thrills, The Amazing Morse is a novel of psychological horror by another author pal of mine, James Rozoff.

And if you’ve ever wondered if there is a book inside of you but don’t know how to get started, check out Randy Ingermanson’s How to Write a Novel Using the Snowflake Method, a series of ten steps that jump-start your creativity and help you quickly map out your story.

  1. Maybe Dennis and Carol Hill, Don and Sharon Del Rosario or Denny and Susie Orr should sign up for that show. I don’t mind volunteering them.

  2. We are glad to hear TX came to it senses about us RVers who register or live in the state. You also have to have it done within 72hrs of returning. Thank you Escapees for getting this for us.

  3. Looks like this Glenn Somodi is getting around. Other RVers have mentioned him as well.
