I had been experiencing a lot of back pain the last couple of weeks, but it seemed to have eased up quite a bit. So yesterday we took advantage of the last good day we’re supposed to have before the week of rain that is predicted to start today to gather wood to put in […]

We live on the central Florida coast, just about exactly halfway between Daytona Beach and Cape Canaveral. If you have been reading the blog for very long, you have seen our pictures of rocket launches that we take from our yard, or sometimes from our private fishing pier on the Intracoastal Waterway.

The weather has been beautiful here for the last few days, but when I opened my office door yesterday morning to let in the nice fresh air there was a 17 foot long rattlesnake/cobra hybrid on the doormat. I didn’t scream like a little girl, because no sound would come out, even though I tried. […]

Today is a very special day for us. It’s our 22nd wedding anniversary. That’s right, this beautiful lady who shares my life e and makes it better in every possible way, has been putting up with my nonsense for over two decades now. Honestly, I don’t know how or why she does it. I know […]

Things seem to be getting back to normal around here. Monday I was pretty much lost in a daze caused by the anesthetic and pain meds I was given at the hospital. But I woke up clear-headed on Tuesday and ready to get some work done. When I left the hospital, the doctor gave me […]

Until blog reader Misty Farrell brought it to my attention yesterday, I did not realize I had failed to start a new drawing for the last week. Usually our free drawings begin on Thursday and the winner is drawn Sunday evening. How did I miss that? The only excuse I have is that between the […]
