Catching Up With Us

Terry and I have been trying to catch up with things that got neglected, or we just didn’t get around to doing in the month that we were on the road visiting family members in Alabama and Arizona. That included a lot of e-mails I received while we were gone. On average, I get over […]

We woke up yesterday morning to the sound of a Bobcat in our yard. No, not the wild critter. It was a bobcat used for doing heavy-duty work. The tree removal company that was supposed to be here on Thursday showed up on Friday instead, and by the time I got dressed and walked outside […]

No, It’s Both

I lived in Arizona for many years, both down in the desert and up in the White Mountains. I remember people in the desert saying, “Sure, it’s 112°, but at least there’s no humidity.” My response was always that there is no humidity in an oven, either, but I don’t want to spend the day […]

Just Hanging Around

Sometimes, no matter what you plan, life gets in the way. Yesterday was a good example. I really wanted to get a minimum of 5,000 words done in my new John Lee Quarrels book, Sweet Tea And Jesus. But as it turned out, that wasn’t going to happen. When I sat down at my desktop […]

One Bite At A Time

How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. It’s the only way to get the job done. Just like you write a book one word at a time, or move into a house one box at a time. You just start at it and you keep on going until the job is […]

I Accomplished Nothing

I said in yesterday’s blog that I planned on being lazy on Sunday, and that I wanted to get some writing done, but that was about it. As it turned out, I accomplished nothing. Nothing at all. Since we had been up earlier than what is usual for us just about every day last week, […]

Just Ballast

The most productive thing I did yesterday was to just add ballast to planet Earth to help it maintain its orbit in space. If a traffic cop would have come along and marked me with chalk, I’m sure I would have been towed away because I didn’t move for hours. I’m surprised Terry didn’t hold […]

Sunday Morning Concert

Now, call me a grouchy old fart if you will, but I’ve always believed that my rights stop where yours begin, and vice versa. So I was a bit perturbed at 8:30 yesterday morning when the fellow across from us here in the campground decided to entertain everybody with a concert of hymns and Christmas […]

Miss Terry is like the Energizer Bunny. Give her a big job and she just keeps going and going until it’s finished. Hardly taking a break for even a few minutes, she waded through the mail duties and put the job behind her like it was nothing. I have no idea how she does it. […]
