He’s Baaack!

Or at least it seems that way for now. After being missing in action for over two weeks, my buddy Greg White’s Our RV Adventures blog is back online. When I talked to Greg yesterday, he said it’s been back for over 24 hours and it hadn’t crashed yet. This, compared to the last couple of weeks, when it was never up for more than a half an hour or so before crashing again. I will leave it to Greg to explain what’s been going on, but the problem was on Go Daddy’s end. And if the dweebs over there would have listened to Greg in the first place, the problem would have been resolved within minutes. It’s good to have you back, buddy.

Somebody took great exception to yesterday’s blog, Campers And RVers, in which I stated that a travel trailer is not a good choice for fulltime RV living. A lady wrote to tell me that not everybody is rich and can afford a big fancy motorhome, and that she and her husband and their children plan to hit the road fulltime in their 24 foot travel trailer within the next two months. All I can say is, good luck. I hope it works out for you.

Good news for those of you who have been eagerly awaiting the release of my new book, Big Lake Wedding. No, it’s not out yet, but it is in the hands of the final proofreader, and once she’s done and I make whatever corrections she has, it will go live on Amazon. Believe me, I’m looking forward to it as much as you are.

I also have some other publishing irons in the fire, so to speak, and I will be telling you about them very soon.

Back in November I posted a blog titled It’s A Narrow State, in which I talked about the collection of antique oil lamps Miss Terry had when we first got together, and how we drove across the state to buy an Aladdin Lincoln Drape lamp I had found online for her.

Several times I have asked Terry if she was planning to start another collection of lamps, which is fine with me, but she wasn’t sure if she wanted to do that or not. Well, I guess that decision has been made. A few days ago we visited some of our favorite antique shops and found two more Aladdin lamps. The white one is another Lincoln Drape, and the clear glass one is a Washington Drape. As you can see, the clear one needs the chimney, and they both need the shades that go on them. That’s no problem, they are readily available at several places online. So, I guess we have the beginnings of a collection, don’t we?

Today is your last chance to enter our Free Drawing for an audiobook of Big Lake Honeymoon, the seventh book in my Big Lake mystery series. To enter, click on this Free Drawing link or the tab at the top of this page and enter your name (first and last) in the comments section at the bottom of that page (not this one).

The winner will be drawn this evening.

Thought For The Day – We need to stop asking how stupid people can get, because some of them seem to take it as a challenge.

  1. I have collected many things over my lifespan and I always said that anything over two is a collection. Terry, for sure, has started another collection.

  2. We’ve used Travel Trailers and Fifth Wheels and for Fulltiming the Fifth Wheels have it.
    About your Stupid Joke.
    On our way back to our RV last night even though I was already doing 5 MPH over the limit an Idiot decided to pass the string of vehicles ahead of him. When I saw him in my Driver’s side mirror and an oncoming car at 500 feet and closing I hit the brakes and shoulder of the road just like the oncoming car. He cleared us both by inches.
    What I didn’t see nor did the Idiot was the Arizona Highway Patrol immediately behind the oncoming car. Talk about dust and smoke off the tires as he turned in pursuit. Aren’t most Patrol Cars equipped with Dash Cams today?
    Good Luck to Miss Terry on her new collection.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It’s about time.
