That Was Fast!

No, not 2021. That seemed to drag on forever, just like the previous year did. And though we are cautiously optimistic for the coming year, especially with so many folks getting vaccinated and boosted against COVID, now the Omicron version seems to be taking over. Will it all ever end? Someone I know and respect, […]

Trucks Out The Wazoo

I swear life is either feast or famine. If you’ve been following along, earlier this year I ordered a new Ford F-150 Lariat pickup and was told it would take about six to eight weeks for delivery. But between the worldwide computer chip shortage and COVID and everything else going on, that time got delayed […]

Yesterday was a wordy day for me. I started out by making a bunch of corrections to chapters that had been proofread by Judy and Roberta, and then I wrote another 2,500-word chapter in my new Big Lake book. I’m getting there, slowly but surely, but I still have no idea who the bad guy […]

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 […]

Well, my latest book, Ka-Bar Karma, is out and doing well on Amazon, and I’ve goofed off as long as I can so it’s time to get back to work. As I said a while back, the normal progression of my writing schedule would be to write the fourth book in my Tinder Street series […]

Yesterday was one of those days when I probably should have just stayed in bed. But like a fool, I got up and tested fate. That’s never a good idea, is it? The day started with a series of phone calls about a referral for an appointment that I was supposed to have to see […]

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 […]

My son had an incident Saturday night that could have gone bad but fortunately did not, because everyone involved kept their cool. He is an amazing photographer, and one thing he is doing a lot of is something called light painting, where you turn off all the lights, or go out on a dark night, […]

I apologize for not being able to post a blog yesterday, but I’m back again. Last night I spent two hours trying to log onto Go Daddy to post a blog, and I kept getting an error message saying that there was a problem on their end that was blocking communication. I finally gave up […]

How About Some 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 are watching the news coverage of Hurricane Eta and are really worried […]

18 Years? Wow!

Eighteen years ago today we were at the Escapees RV Club’s Raccoon Valley Campground, just north of Knoxville, Tennessee, when my daughter Tiffany, back in Arizona, went into labor with her first child. We didn’t have a cell phone and it was during the evening, and the only pay telephone available was in the campground’s […]

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog, a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I don’t have anything else to talk about […]
