I’m back with more questions from blog readers about RVing, my writing activities, 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. Would you be so kind as to tell me about […]

We hit it hard yesterday, and by the end of the day over 99% of the packing and loading was done. That included disassembling Terry’s two big Glamakra looms. I spent most of the day loading the cargo trailer while Terry was busy packing things in boxes, including her collection of antique Aladdin lamps, which […]

I keep hearing from people asking us if we are safe and out of harm’s way from Hurricane Florence. Thank you for your concern, and yes, we are fine. The hurricane made landfall about 550 miles north of us, so except for some high surf it was a nonevent for us. We didn’t even get […]

For some reason it seemed like a very long weekend to both of us, and more than once we found ourselves checking our cell phones for the date or asking each other what day it was. I guess that’s one of the great things about being semi-retired. Except for the occasional doctor’s appointment, we don’t […]
