Not a Pretty Day

When you are trying to squeeze as much quality travel and RV camping as possible into a necessarily limited time-span … in my case, late spring through fall in Alaska – there are going to be days less picturesque than others. Heck, sometimes (like today) it’s just plain cold, wet and dreary. On the otherContinue reading “Not a Pretty Day”

On the Road Again 🎵🎶🎵

Let’s sing the chorus one more time! Gotta love driving down the highway to Willie Nelson songs. Rhonda doesn’t even seem to mind my singing. 😉 Speaking of things you just gotta love … get this.

Mental Stimulation – Key to a Happy Retirement?

After retiring last fall from my office job of the past eight years, I gave a lot of thought to how best to keep my mind active and productive. I believe I mentioned that I was going to start writing again for BellaOnline – an international multi-topic online magazine owned and operated by women. I’veContinue reading “Mental Stimulation – Key to a Happy Retirement?”
