I’m back with more questions from blog readers about RVing, my writing activities, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, and all kinds of other things. While I try to answer all questions individually, I also share some here occasionally.
Q. Now that you live in your “forever home” in the country, will there be a dog in your future?
A. I honestly don’t know. We love animals and I know that Terry would love to have a cat or two. I love dogs but I don’t know if I have the time or patience to train one these days. Having lost pets we loved in the past, and knowing how much it hurts to lose them, we are not sure we want to put ourselves through that again.
Q. I am eager to see what Terry is going to be growing in her garden. Do you have any idea what she will be planting?
A. Terry tells me she plans on growing tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, basil, rosemary, thyme, parsley, potatoes, rhubarb, corn, summer squash, zucchini, butternut, spaghetti squash, and strawberries. She said she and Travis plan to go with a plethora of items and see what happens.
Q. You’ve mentioned several times all the deer on your property. Do you plan on doing any hunting?
A. Probably not. I used to hunt quite a bit and I have nothing against it, but I’ve killed everything I ever want to kill in this world. Besides, I’m old and lazy and it takes a lot of work to field dress a deer.
Q. I’m going through withdrawals. When is your next book going to be out?
A. I am deep into A Changing World, the fifth book in my Tinder Street family saga. I try to never say when a book’s going to be done because I never know myself. But it’s coming.
Q. When you first moved into your place in Alabama you mentioned getting a T-Mobile hotspot. How has that worked out for you?
A. We have been very pleased with the hotspot. It works as good or better than the Spectrum service we had in Florida, and at $50 a month, it costs a whole lot less.
Q. The big Escapees RV rally is going on in Tucson this week. We never got to go to an event where you and Terry were putting on seminars, which we really regret. Do you see yourselves doing any more seminars at RV rallies in the future?
A. I doubt it very much. That part of our life is in the past, and we’ve been away from the RV lifestyle for so long that nobody would know who we are or care what we had to say. I’m not sure how relevant our experiences as fulltime RVers would be to the people on the road today.
Q.Have you had any luck selling your house in Florida? I don’t think the market is as hot as it was a year ago and we’re just wondering if you’re getting any bites on it.
A. It is actually under contract and is on track in the next week to 10 days.
And finally, here’s a chuckle to start your day from the collection of funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us.
Thought For The Day – If we quit something that’s no longer worth pursuing, that’s not failure, that’s success.
