Over Two Years On The Road

Wednesday, April 11th, 2018

A bit over two years ago, Trish and I hitched our home to our truck and headed out for new adventures of living on the road.  In me, at least, that brings up a bit of introspection.  And, what adventures we have had. We have seen more of this country than I had ever thought […]

Howling At The Moon

Monday, March 13th, 2017

Last night we did something a little different from our “normal” routine.  Every month, on the full moon, there’s a concert in the desert just 3 or 4 miles from us. Howling at the Moon. People start showing up with canopies, chairs, tables, BBQ grills, food, and of course, their favorite beverages. The bands show […]

Yuma Territorial Prison

Friday, February 24th, 2017

We decided to play tourist and to make a visit to the Yuma Territorial Prison.  The name given the prison by prisoners was, “The Hell Hole”.  Each cell was 9 x 12 with 2 3-tier bunks in each cell.  Imagine 6 dirty, sweaty men, men who don’t like anyone, stuffed into a 9 x 12 […]

A friend, Anne Martin, is an avid quilter.  And she is a perfectionist. Wherever two pieces of materials come together, the points meet exactly, the mitred corners are perfect.  In the Northwest she has won multiple awards and prizes for her work. Yesterday Anne took 34 of her 47 (that she hasn’t given away) quilts […]

Summertime Plans

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

Despite the temperatures being in the 80s, it’s not summertime here in Yuma, AZ yet.  Besides I wanted to talk about something else.  We’ve made our plans made for this summer already! I used to (and still do) aggravate Trish to no end.  She would ask what my plan was for the day, and I […]

Happy Anniversary!

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017

One Year! One year ago today, February 1, 2016, we left a nice life along the banks of the Feather River.  We were surrounded by people we love (with a little turnover to keep life interesting) and who love us.  It was comfortable. One year ago today we finished loading the trailer and the truck, […]

An Angel

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

It was about 1985 when I first met her. She was the wife of someone I worked with and I met her when invited to their home. Over the years she became part of my family, and I hers.  I loved her like the sister I never had.  She was the sweetest, kindest, most accepting […]

I woke this morning having worked myself into a froth during the night. It actually took a few nights of not very good, or long, sleep before I reached a froth. But, the result was the same.  I woke up bawling my eyes out, telling Bryce how much I love him, telling him good-bye, and […]
