Songstress Ella Fitzgerald described the weather here in west central Alabama exactly in that song. Yesterday it was too darned hot to do much of anything outside. The temperature got up to 89o but the heat index said it felt like 94o during the afternoon. Except for taking Alli out for a few potty breaks, […]

In yesterday’s blog, I told you that the weatherman said the next few days are supposed to be very stormy, which was fine with me because I would have time to get some writing done in my new Big Lake book. He lied, and I lied. Though we had some rain before dawn, it had […]

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.

Yesterday we left the house to go to Daytona Beach for the first time in at least three months, if not longer. I had to go to the lab at the VA Medical Center to get some blood work before an upcoming telephone conference with my doctor. It was a nice day and I decided […]

It’s been in the low to mid-90s for days now, and the humidity has kicked in to add to the discomfort. Florida is not a good place to be a fat man this time of year. But it has convinced me I need to change my ways and clean up my act, because obviously I […]

I try to be upbeat in this blog, but anybody who knows me knows that I don’t pull any punches either, and I give you the good with the bad. Not to be a downer, but today I have a couple of the bad to share. Even though I am married to the best cook […]

I bet you’re wondering how I can tie those two topics into one blog, aren’t you? The easy way to do it is to say that I have some relatives that are pretty much vegetables, but that would be too easy. It would be true, but too easy, and I never take the easy way […]
