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. I finished Jackpot, book 12 in the John Lee Quarrels […]

She Spoils Me

We all know that Miss Terry spoils me. Whether it’s her delicious meals, a tray of piping hot peanut butter cookies right out of the oven, or a birthday cake every year. Not to mention doing so much to keep our home and business running smoothly and helping me with my physical issues. Yes, I […]

After our hectic three-day trip to the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, and back home again, neither one of us was in a hurry to get out of bed yesterday. And when we finally did, neither of us had much gumption to do anything at all. Terry’s third Vego raised garden bed had been delivered […]

An Unexpected Bonus

The combination of Delta 8 and Cymbalta seems to be keeping the worst of the pain at bay, but all I wanted to do was sleep yesterday. And while my body appreciated that, I need to be able to function at the same time. So I need to do a little more balancing, cutting the […]

As I said before, I have used a headset microphone to dictate my books for a long time, and a while back I decided I needed to upgrade so I purchased a Blue Yeti Nano standalone microphone. It took a couple of attempts to get it set up properly and it works, although it’s not […]

A New Lease On Life

Friday will be five weeks since I had three RF nerve ablations done on my lower back, and for those who have asked about the results, it has been nothing short of amazing. I can’t believe how much relief you can get from a relatively simple outpatient procedure. Since the day of the procedure, I […]

Wow, I Never Do That!

I am glad I got almost 10,000 words done in my new Big Lake book over the weekend because I needed to make some headway on it. I originally had hoped to have it done in December, but with all the running we had to do back and forth to the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville […]

Yesterday was a crazy busy day. Just as promised, Wednesday evening the final proofreader finished Big Lake Ninja and sent the manuscript back to me so I could start working on it yesterday morning. Unfortunately, lately my back has been giving me a lot of problems again, so Wednesday night I could hardly sleep. No […]
