Saturday Q&A

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.Where can I find The War Years? I have been trying to read all of your books on Kindle.

A. The War Years, the sixth book in my Tinder Street saga, will be out early next year.

Q.Do you get a commission or something from Amazon when I go through your blog to buy something? With Christmas coming, I will be ordering quite a bit and would like to help you guys make a buck if I can.

A. Yes, if you click the Shop Amazon button on the right sidebar of the blog we make a small commission from anything you order. It’s not much, but it helps offset the cost of maintaining the blog.

Q. If Miss Terry has a recycle bin, why not take the cardboard you want to recycle and run it through your wood chipper? Add that to the recycle section and it’ll decompose from the moisture along with everything else you throw in.

A. I thought about that, but the owner’s manual specifically says not to shred cardboard. The glue in it will gum up the chipper blades.

Q.With all that room you guys have now, have you thought about getting any horses? I know you said your granddaughter is a barrel racer and remember seeing a picture of horses in the pasture before you bought the place.

A. There are no horses in our future. Two cats and a dog are enough to take care of. Terry had horses years ago and has no interest in having them again. As for me, the ASPCA would crucify me if I put my fat butt on a horse, and deservedly so. I’ve always made it a policy not to ride anything I can’t put gas or diesel in.

Q. Do you and Miss Terry ever fly your kites anymore? You have not written about that in a long time.

A. It has been a long time since we have flown our quad line kites and we were talking about that a while ago. With our big pasture, if the wind kicks up enough, we certainly have room for it.

Be sure to enter our latest Free Drawing. This week’s prize is an RV camping journal donated by Barbara House. Barbara makes several variations of these, and they all have pages where you can list the date, weather, where you traveled to and from that day, beginning and ending mileage, campground information including amenities at RV sites, a place for campground reviews, room to record activities, people met along the way, reminders of places to see and things to do the next time you’re in the area, and a page for notes for each day.

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). Only one entry per person per drawing please, and you must enter with your real name. To prevent spam or multiple entries, the names of cartoon or movie characters are not allowed. The winner will be drawn Sunday evening. Note: Due to the high shipping cost of printed books and Amazon restrictions on e-books to foreign countries, only entries with US addresses and e-mail addresses are allowed. After 90 days, unclaimed prizes revert back to the drawing pool for a future contest.

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 – True wealth is not measured in money or status or power. It is measured in the legacy we leave behind for those we love and those we inspire.
