Yesterday was an eventful day for us. Terry started the day by making us some mixed berries and half a bagel each for breakfast and then baked some delicious blueberry muffins. Just about the time they were ready to come out of the oven a very nice young lady named Jackie and her mother Lisa […]

Yesterday afternoon I finished A Changing World, the fifth book in my Tinder Street family saga and my 52nd book overall. It came in at 96,753 words. Terry edited and proofread the last four chapters, and after making her corrections, I sent it off to Judy and Roberta to be proofread again. I hope to […]

We were up early yesterday morning because we had a lot to get done. Our son Travis helped me put up another deer fence, this time around the garden and Terry’s raised planter beds. We appreciate Travis and his wife Geli very much because whatever we need, they are always here for us. The fence […]

What seems like never-ending rain has kept me from doing much work with my Kubota BX2680 tractor since we moved here, but we finally had a few rare days of sunshine that helped dry things out a bit. So the other day I loaded the tractor into the back of our fourteen-foot cargo trailer to […]

After reading yesterday’s blog, several readers e-mailed me to ask about the fate of the injured coyote I wrote about. I don’t know because when I went out back to look yesterday, I could not find it. I hope it has succumbed to its injuries and is not lying out there in the woods suffering. […]

Smoked turkey, that is. For a long time now, we have been talking about smoking a turkey in our Orion convection smoker, but we never seemed to get around to it. On our last shopping excursion to Publix grocery store a couple of weeks ago, they had turkey breasts on sale, and Terry asked if […]

I spent most of last week writing, and for the last three days I had done over 10,000 words in my new book. So yesterday it was time to take a day off. Terry had seen some nice pieces of coral at the local flea market in nearby Oak Hill, so we started the day […]

We are spending the week in Tuscaloosa, Alabama visiting my son Travis and his wife Geli, and we’re taking advantage of every moment we can to be with them. So I’m going to be slow to respond to emails and Facebook messages all week. If it’s something important I will try to reply as soon […]
