Golf: The Dismal Science – Sept 2020

Most people attribute the term “dismal science” to the study of economics, but I maintain it is the study and execution of the game of golf.  Summer is winding down and I thought I would capture a few thoughts on one of the activities that, particularly in these strange times, can provide a little outside… Read More Golf: The Dismal Science – Sept 2020

New Smoker Ooh-ee-Ooh – June 2020

There is something mystical about buying and trying a new meat smoker; a new device to smoke meat, a new technique to improve cooking results.  What do you suppose was the genesis of slow cooking? Do you suppose cavemen (cavewomen, cavepeople?) sat around the fire and said, “Hey, let’s smoke this brontosaurus leg low and… Read More New Smoker Ooh-ee-Ooh – June 2020

Graduation Day – May 2020

Another year of graduating students!  Or was it just another year!?!  I believe this year was, shall we say, distinctive. Let’s consider the traditional high school or college graduation ceremony.  I won’t lie – I don’t remember a damn thing about my graduation ceremonies.  I don’t have pictures of my high school graduation, and my… Read More Graduation Day – May 2020

The Prince Howard Way – Apr 2020

I call it the Prince Howard Way, because this neighborhood has clearly been touched with love and compassion.  When asked recently to donate for healthcare workers at the local hospital, the neighborhood quickly responded with acts of kindness, caring, and consideration. I know this is not just happening in our neighborhood; it is surely happening… Read More The Prince Howard Way – Apr 2020

LinkedIn… and Rural America – Feb 2020

We just spent the last month in (mostly) rural America, driven primarily on back roads.   Upon our return home, for some unexplained reason, I logged into my LinkedIn account.  Why, you ask?  No clue – purely random.  I hadn’t logged on in memory (my blog posts do automatically post on LinkedIn – but without my… Read More LinkedIn… and Rural America – Feb 2020

Lake Havasu City (AZ) – Feb 2020

You know your unhealthy interest in fireworks is excessive if it has caused you to make a 1,500-mile trip to attend the Western Winter Blast, an assemblage of like-minded individuals who have a slightly outsized and unnatural attraction to exploding cylinder shells. Combine Woodstock (add 40 years to the average attendee’s age), the tailgating of… Read More Lake Havasu City (AZ) – Feb 2020

Las Cruces (NM) – Feb 2020

Admittedly our stop in Las Cruces was designed as a “utility” stop… do laundry, shop for food, really cool stuff like that.  Awesome you say?  Totally!  Best.  Laundromat.  Ever!  Kidding. We camped at Siesta RV Park, although “camped” would be better described as “parked”.  But as said, our goal was utility and this campground (parking… Read More Las Cruces (NM) – Feb 2020

2019 in Review – Dec 2019

Let’s just say 2019 was an unusual year, with probably the least amount of RV travel in many years. The year started with us financially supporting the medical community.  Between a skiing accident and broken bone, shoulder surgery and a hip replacement for my bride, I believe we were wildly successful.  Please feel free to… Read More 2019 in Review – Dec 2019
