Should newspapers have trigger warnings? Are we that fragile as a society that we have to be warned that something unpleasant may exist? I can watch hours of violence on prime-time television, but when the nightly news comes on, I have to be warned that the report of an auto accident might be disturbing? Another […]

I’m back with more questions from blog readers about RVing, 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. You mentioned buying smoked fish in yesterday’s blog. I know you had an […]

As I said a while back, April has been a busy month of birthdays for us. Our-son-in law Kenny, daughter-in-law Geli, and daughter Tiffany all had birthdays this month, and now today is granddaughter Destiny’s fifteenth birthday. It’s amazing to me how fast this young lady has grown up and how beautiful, sweet, and intelligent […]

Yesterday was another very busy day for us. I received the formatted e-book version of my new Tinder Street book, The Hard Years, back from Scarlett and Terry spent the day giving everything one last proofreading, and I was making the corrections she felt were needed.

I spent most of yesterday correcting the last chapters I wrote in my new book, The Hard Years, then printed them out for Terry to edit and proofread. After I did that, I looked through the whole manuscript, correcting a couple of other errors that got missed. One of the problems with doing a series […]

Yesterday was another day spent working on my new Tinder Street book, The Hard Years. I know some of you are probably tired of hearing about it by now, but that’s what’s taking up most of my time these days. I started the day by making corrections to several chapters that Roberta had sent me […]

It has been very cold here in Central Florida. Cold enough that we had to cover our citrus trees for the last three nights because temperatures got down below freezing. It’s so cold that iguanas have literally been falling out of the trees. That’s no joke. They go into some kind of a cold stupor […]
