Yesterday, our schedules meshed so Travis and I could go to the dump to unload our 14-foot cargo trailer of all the debris from taking down the wall and ceiling of the extra room in the barn. That’s something we will never do again. I rented a roll off dumpster from Bin There Dump That […]

A Nice Day Outside

Yesterday was a nice day to be outside, with temperatures in the mid-60s and lots of blue sky overhead. It was definitely too nice of a day to spend it inside. Which was fine because we had plenty to do. Terry wanted to relocate one of her raised planter beds. She currently has three of […]

The temperature here in west central Alabama has been miserably hot this week. The last few days have been in the upper 90s with a heat index of anywhere from 105 to 110 degrees. Yesterday afternoon I had to go out to the garage for something, and the thermometer in there said it was 102 […]

We have a lot going on that has been keeping us very busy. I’ve already told you about our new pets, and there’s no question about it, they have taken up a lot of our time as they adjust to living with us and we adjust to living with them. But it’s all been fun. […]

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. Now that you live in your “forever home” in the […]

Several blog readers have asked me how Terry and I are feeling after getting our shingles vaccinations on Wednesday afternoon. As I said, I had a big lump on my arm, and both of our arms hurt all night long. By yesterday evening, mine was tender but not sore anymore, though Terry was still experiencing […]

Just Hanging Out

Terry is still in the recovery stage from her Medtronics implant and doing well overall. She only took one or two pain pills in the first day or two after the surgery, and since then unless she moves wrong or bumps into something, or more likely me bumping into her, things aren’t too bad. But […]

For years I have had a reputation for bringing bad weather with me everywhere I go. A community could be in a year-long drought, but about the time I show up they get torrential rains. Folks can be planting their gardens on a sunny spring day when I pull into a campground, and the next […]

We left the Oceano, Elks campground a little after 9 a.m. and headed north on U.S. Highway 101. Morning fog was lingering over the coast, and according to the dashboard thermometer in my Winnebago motorhome, the outside temperature was 60 degrees. As we moved further inland, the fog dissipated and the temperature began to climb. […]
