Back To Work

With Thanksgiving out of the way it was time to get back to work yesterday, if for no other reason than to work off the tryptophan from all that Thanksgiving turkey. My Mom used to always say that’s what made you tired after you got done eating on Thanksgiving, although some experts would disagree. I […]

It’s Almost Time

It won’t be long now, it’s almost time. Before you know it people will be climbing over each other to get into stores to get the best deals for their holiday gift shopping. Let the insanity begin! Of course, these days it seems like retailers are pushing Christmas before the last echoes of the Independence […]

Stealth Rockets?

We live on the central Florida coast, just about exactly halfway between Daytona Beach and Cape Canaveral. If you have been reading the blog for very long, you have seen our pictures of rocket launches that we take from our yard, or sometimes from our private fishing pier on the Intracoastal Waterway. I was never […]

Back To Real Life

I hope your Thanksgiving was as nice as ours. Terry spent the whole day in the kitchen, making a delicious meal of turkey breast, mashed potatoes, gravy, pumpkin pie, and lots of other goodies. That seems like a lot of work to me, but she loves it, and the end result is fabulous. As for […]

Call Me Christopher

From now on, you can call me Christopher, as in Christopher Columbus. You know, the guy who thought he was going one place and ended up somewhere else entirely and got credit for a discovery that he may or may not have been the first to stumble upon. Because I have made a discovery myself. […]

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog, a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t have anything else to talk […]

I don’t know about you, but I’m glad Thanksgiving is over. It used to be my least favorite holiday, except for Easter. Even as a kid I couldn’t understand how the Savior of the Christian world dying on the cross and then being resurrected morphed into some guy in a bunny suit hiding eggs in […]

I’m So Stuffed!

I’ll tell you right now, the turkey wasn’t the only thing to get stuffed at our house for Thanksgiving! We had a quiet day at home, just the two of us, which is just the way we like it. Miss Terry had bought a turkey breast and cooked it, along with all the goodies, and […]

Well, Thanksgiving has expanded our waistlines and Black Friday has reduced our bank accounts. It’s the Christmas shopping season, so let the madness begin! Get out there and stimulate the economy, it’s a holiday tradition and your duty as an American consumer. Me, I’ll just stay at home listening to Christmas carols and let you […]

This wasn’t a typical Thanksgiving for us, sitting at a table loaded with food and surrounded by family and friends, but it was still a very good day. And I think Terry and I both ended the day feeling very grateful for all that we have in our lives. We spent most of the last […]

Why Do I Try?

I don’t know why I even try to give our readers an idea of our travel plans, because the minute I do, everything changes. I reported in yesterday’s blog that we would send the CD with the new issue to our printer, and hopefully head west by way of Livingston, Texas and across the central […]
