Beyond Stuffed

If you are like us I’m sure you were beyond stuffed by the end of the day yesterday. I wasn’t able to step on the bathroom scale this morning because when it saw me coming it started running. Friends invited us for Thanksgiving dinner, and what a meal it was! They provided the turkey and […]

The Not So Fun Part

I love what I do for a living. I wanted to be an author and a newspaperman ever since I was a kid, and I managed to accomplish both goals. It’s cool to make a living sitting on my butt talking into a microphone, telling stories that end up as books that people want to […]

Yesterday I was formatting the e-book version of Big Lake Shootout, and when I was about halfway through, my darned computer froze up. I had to reboot it before I could work anymore, and since I broke one of my own rules and hadn’t saved very much as I went, I lost about half of […]

I’m back with more questions from blog readers about RVing, 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. What are the blue pants you are wearing in the picture Terry took […]

Several blog readers have asked me how Terry and I are feeling after getting our shingles vaccinations on Wednesday afternoon. As I said, I had a big lump on my arm, and both of our arms hurt all night long. By yesterday evening, mine was tender but not sore anymore, though Terry was still experiencing […]

Quite a few readers have asked how things are going with Terry’s AeroGarden, as well as the citrus trees and perennial peanuts we planted in our yard. Overall, things have been successful, though there have been a couple of setbacks. A week or so ago, we had a cold snap come through Central Florida, with […]

Buds And Berries

When Jake from Lindley’s Garden Center planted our citrus trees, told us that we might see some fruit as early as February, although that was no guarantee, and he added that it might be as much as eighteen months. But when I went out to check the mail yesterday, I noticed buds on our key […]

Dry Eyes And YouTube

I didn’t get any writing done Wednesday because Terry had an appointment with her eye doctor down in Titusville to replace the plugs that they do every four months or so for her dry eyes. She’s been having more and more of a problem with it, and even expensive eyedrops haven’t helped, so he gave […]

As I said before, I have used a headset microphone to dictate my books for a long time, and a while back I decided I needed to upgrade so I purchased a Blue Yeti Nano standalone microphone. It took a couple of attempts to get it set up properly and it works, although it’s not […]

One’s On The Way

I stole today’s blog title from an old Loretta Lynn song, and I think it’s kind of appropriate. I told you last week that I got Terry an AeroGarden as an early Christmas present, and she got it all set up and ready to go. And one of the seed pods that she planted in […]

Terry and I don’t really do Christmas, in terms of giving each other gifts. We buy things for the grandkids, and we always buy a bunch of toys and food for the holiday drives for the needy in our area. But when it comes to each other, if we want something we usually just buy […]
