I messed up yesterday and it could have been a disaster. But fortunately, Lady Luck gave me a break that I didn’t really deserve. I wanted to use my Kubota tractor’s belly motor to cut some weeds next to the barn, and I thought I had walked through that area well enough to make sure […]

We started yesterday with a trip down to the Pickens County Courthouse in Carrollton to drop off a form we had been sent from the tax assessor wanting to know if any changes have been made to our property since we purchased it. They also included a note that we had to stop in and […]

We got some very good news when we were at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida yesterday. They told Terry that since it has been 23 years since her fight with stage 4 cancer, during which she got 60 days of radiation and two radiation implants plus weekly chemo, she has passed the window where […]

Yesterday afternoon Terry had an appointment with Southern Eye Consultants in Tuscaloosa to have plugs put in her eyes. This is something she has to have done every few months because she has severe dry eyes that no drops, even ones by prescription, can relieve. This was her first time there and she was very […]

Ysterday was a town day for us. We left the house in the early afternoon and drove into Northport, with our first stop at Tractor Supply to pick up a few things and to look at some stuff for a couple of projects we want to do down the road. Then it was into Tuscaloosa […]

Scrap That Plan

Last week my buddy Jesse and I decided that yesterday we and our ladies would take the pontoon boat out on the Intracoastal Waterway for a day of cruising and fishing. But since the wind was blowing at about 15 miles an hour for most of the day, and the high temperature only got up […]

Yesterday was a wet one, with rain falling most of the day. Sometimes there was not much more than a shower, and other times it was a real downpour. I would have been perfectly happy to stay home all day, but I had a doctor’s appointment in the afternoon, so we ventured out. As it […]

Yesterday was our friend Jennifer’s birthday, and the original plan was to go to Mount Dora for the Renninger’s Antique Extravaganza, which is held three times a year. It’s one of our favorite events and Terry and I have been there a couple of times browsing acre after acre of vendors selling everything from antique […]

It’s been a long time since I’ve had my Mustang out of the garage. In fact, believe it or not, it still has less than 1,500 miles on it since I bought it new in November of 2018, and that includes a 25-mile trip each way down to Titusville and back yesterday. It’s not that […]

Yesterday morning Terry and I had to go to LabCorp to get blood draws for upcoming doctor appointments. We finished there about noon, and since we had to fast before the appointment and we had some other things we wanted to do while we were out, we decided to try a small restaurant on U.S. […]

In yesterday’s blog, I told you about the tree removal and about us cleaning things up afterward, and about our trip to the nursery to order some citrus trees. But there was more to our day than that. And now, in the words of the late, great Paul Harvey, here is the rest of the […]

Do you name your vehicles? Do you think they have a personality? I don’t think I have ever named one, but I do sometimes think they have a personality. I just didn’t know they had ears until now. I know what you’re thinking, cars are machines. Inanimate objects. They don’t have feelings, they don’t have […]

Moving into a 1600 s/f house with an 1100 s/f garage after 17 years of living in a 320 s/f motorhome is hard work and a hell of an adjustment! Terry said we don’t need to worry about exercise for a while, because just wandering around trying to figure out where to put stuff is […]

An “Us” Day

For the last couple of weeks we have been spending a lot of time with friends from Florida to Alabama, and we have had a wonderful time with them. We love being with our family and friends whenever we can, but from time to time, we need an “us” day, and yesterday was the day. […]
