Thank you to everybody who posted blog comments or sent e-mails or Facebook messages hoping Terry and I were feeling better. The headache is gone for me and I’m doing much better. Terry is still sore from her procedure and will be for a while, but every day is a new day and one step […]

She’s Still Cooking

I didn’t quite make my goal of 5,000 words in my new book yesterday but I came close, somewhere around 4,250. I know, I’m such a slacker. Hopefully I can make up for that today. Someone said it has been a while since I have shown any of Miss Terry’s kitchen creations in the blog […]

Our daughter Tiffany has been visiting from Arizona, and today is her last full day here. She leaves tomorrow morning to go home to her family, and while I know that her husband and kids are really looking forward to seeing her, we’re going to miss having her around.

Okay, is 2020 really gone, or is this one of those practical jokes where just about the time we all breathe a sigh of relief, it pops up out of nowhere and yells “Boo!” I sure hope it’s behind us, although a friend of mine said last night that we’ve got a new year that’s […]

I goofed in yesterday’s blog when I said that the police car on the cover of Return to Dog’s Run was a 1960 Ford. Blog reader Dave Davis corrected me on that, telling me he thought it was a 1963, and he was right. I should have known better, because back in my high school […]

I appreciate everybody who bought a copy of my new book, Big Lake Ninja, and told their family and friends about it. It’s off to a very good start. If I could ask one more favor of you, once you finish reading the book would you please consider leaving a review on Amazon or Goodreads? […]

Smaller Is Better

You might think that fishing is pretty simple. You tie a hook on the end of your line, stick some bait on the hook, throw it in the water and just wait for a hungry fish to come by so you can make it your dinner. But as any experienced angler will tell you, there’s […]

One of the things that sold us on our house, besides the big room for Terry’s looms and the huge garage, was the 300 foot long private fishing pier on the Indian River, which is just 800 yards from our front door. The pier is lighted, has some nice benches and fishing stations, and even […]
