Back To Writing

Except for my daily blog, I’ve been slacking off in the writing department since the release of Big Lake Ranger right after Christmas. I did bring out Murder, Mayhem, And Main Street a week or so ago, which is an e-book bundle with the first books in my three different mystery series along with a […]

Enough Already!

It has been very cold here in Central Florida. Cold enough that we had to cover our citrus trees for the last three nights because temperatures got down below freezing. It’s so cold that iguanas have literally been falling out of the trees. That’s no joke. They go into some kind of a cold stupor […]

A Busy Week

It’s been a busy week for us, and we’re not done yet. On Monday we had appointments at LabCorp to get blood draws for routine upcoming appointments with our primary care doctor. The lab is only a couple of miles from the house, and we were in and out pretty quickly. Like every place seems […]

My CPAP machine has a reservoir that has to be filled with distilled water every day. It seems like it uses a lot compared to some people I have talked to in the online forums, but other people say they also have to refill the reservoir on a daily basis. Terry’s AeroGarden also uses distilled […]

We Have Been Busy

My daughter Tiffany and her daughter Destiny will be here in just a few days, and in the meantime, Terry and I have been very busy trying to get some things wrapped up before they arrive. So in today’s blog I will try to bring you up to date. I mentioned the other day that […]

I have shared many pictures here in the blog of the Indian River, aka the Intracoastal Waterway, taken from our fishing pier or when we were out on our kayaks or the pontoon boat. All of this is part of the Mosquito Lagoon, which offers some of the best fishing in the world. The other […]

Except for my wedding ring and a gold chain that I have worn around my neck for at least 30 years, I’ve never been into jewelry all that much. At least not for me, although I have spent a considerable amount of money on jewelry for various women over the years, but that was just […]

Taking a Breather

Much of yesterday was spent getting my author’s newsletter announcing my new book, Big Lake Ranger, sent out to my subscribers, sending out announcements about the new book to different people, and posting in various social media groups for mystery readers. There were also a lot of e-mails to deal with, including one from the […]

Terry and I spent all day yesterday making last-minute changes to my new book, Big Lake Ranger, and getting the e-book version of it formatted, which turned out to be a bear because it seems like Amazon changes the way they want things done from book to book. But I finally got that part of […]

My Kind Of Christmas

Yesterday was my kind of Christmas. Terry and I woke up and snuggled in bed for a while, just enjoying each other’s company and the fact that we are together and so much in love. Then our son Travis called from Alabama and we talked for a while. He and his wife Geli are doing […]

I Always Wondered

We’ve all seen those big metals storage pods that people use when they’re moving or just have things they need to find a place to keep  for a while, and I always wondered how they moved them around. Did they use some giant forklift to load the pods onto the back of a flatbed truck, […]

Saturday Q&A

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. We have been looking online at real estate listings for your area in […]

Plugging Away

I’ve spent the last couple of days plugging away at my new book, Big Lake Ranger, which I had hoped to have out by the end of the month. But I am way behind schedule and I’m not going to make that goal. At least maybe I’ll have it done by the end of the […]

I have really been slacking off in the writing department lately. I started Big Lake Ranger, my 5th book for this year, on September 30th, and I should be wrapping it up by now and looking at a publishing date. But between keeping busy with some medical and technical issues and more than a little […]

Words, Books, And Rain

I had such a good time knocking out 7,000 words in my new book, Big Lake Ranger, on Sunday that I did the same thing again yesterday! That puts me at over 34,000 words, and with a couple more days like that, I will be well past the halfway mark. I never know exactly what […]

We woke up to a surprise yesterday morning, an unexpected deposit from Social Security into our checking account for a rather large sum of money. I usually get my Social Security direct deposited on the third Wednesday of the month, and Terry’s comes in on the fourth. Yesterday was only the second Wednesday of the […]
