We were up and out the door early yesterday morning because we had a lot to get done. Our first stop was at Chase Bank in New Smyrna Beach to make a deposit, and we chatted for a couple of moments with one of the employees who is interested in RVing and follows me on […]

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 […]

Patience Tested

I had my patience tested yesterday. As it turns out, I am negative. We had a lot to get done yesterday and we only accomplished about half of it. But in the process, I certainly got my patience tested. And I’m the first to admit that I’m not a patient man. We had to go […]

Neither one of us was particularly hungry when we got up yesterday, so Miss Terry had some leftover blueberries and blackberries, and the extra pie crust dough left over from the peach galette that she mixed with some jam and made these delicious fried pies for brunch. The crust was light and flaky, and they […]

Except for a couple of dentist visits that Terry couldn’t put off any longer, we have not left the house in about three months except to go to the grocery store or Walgreens to pick up prescriptions. But yesterday we decided it was time to get a dose of Vitamin Sea. So, after a stop […]

We resisted as long as we could, but yesterday we finally had to don our masks and leave the house for the first time in a couple of weeks. I had to stop at the post office to mail a couple of items off, then we went to Publix for groceries. And just like every […]

Yesterday we donned face masks and gloves and ventured out to get groceries for the first time in almost three weeks. Our first stop was at Walgreens to pick up a prescription, and while we were there, we found some Bounty paper towels, limit one package per customer, and snagged one. They were entirely out […]

Even with more cases of coronavirus being reported every day, and with the death toll climbing, life still goes on. It may not be the life that we would like to have, and some people are having trouble getting used to what for now is the new normal, but this too shall pass. We are […]

Not Much Today

There is not much of a blog today, since we have to be at the hospital at 6:30 in the morning for my biopsies. They tell me it’s a simple procedure that will involve a local anesthetic at each biopsy site and light sedation. We expect to be done and headed home by about 11 […]

Oops And Almost Oops

When I was a kid, I was so accident-prone that my father used to say I should probably get a job in a mattress factory. Then he would think about it for a minute and say no, I would more than likely knock a stack of mattresses off on top of me and smother myself. […]

The third book in my Big Lake mystery series is called Crazy Days In Big Lake, and as the title implies, there was a lot going on in that little mountain town and everybody seemed to have gone crazy. Neighbors were threatening each other with violence, eco-protestors were on the march, flower children were camping […]
