Yesterday was absolutely beautiful, with temperatures in the mid-70s and lots of blue sky overhead. I keep hoping that this last cold snap we had is it for the year and we’re going to start seeing warmer weather. Of course, that means it will then start getting really hot before too long. There’s just no […]

For quite a while now, Terry has been experiencing pain in her right elbow that is exacerbated when she tries to lift anything. At our last doctor’s appointment, they gave her a steroid shot and prescribed Prednisone tablets. She was instructed to take two pills once a day for a week and then one pill […]

Thank you to everyone who sent emails and messages asking if we were safe from the storms that tore through our part of the country Friday night. We dodged a bullet because they changed course and went north of us, so all we got was some wind and rain. Unfortunately, there was a lot of […]

Note: I have always been a bit of a prankster, and I do believe this one tops them all, spanning several years. There was a time when Arizona had cactus cops, whose duty was to enforce laws protecting native-plants, especially saguaro cacti, which could be worth thousands of dollars to landscapers. Cactus rustling was a […]

The Halfway Point

Yesterday was another stay at home day for us. We started the day with some more of Miss Terry’s delicious made from scratch brown butter yeasted waffles, and they were fantastic. I was never a waffle man before, my taste ranging more towards French toast, until the first time Terry made me waffles. But there’s […]

We had hoped to get the work done on our coach early enough yesterday to be able to get on the road and put some miles behind us by dark. True to their word, the folks at Camping World in Robertsdale were finished by noon, and true to their record thus far, the folks at […]
