Summer has finally landed in our neck of the woods. I was worried because we were having unseasonably cold and rainy weather, but now it’s unseasonably hot. Go figure. Normally, temperatures in the upper nineties would not bother me one bit, but this year is different. Our beloved pool is closed due to Coronavirus…even though… Read More Summer is here!
I’m baaaaack….It’s been well over a month since I wrote my last blog because contrary to what I thought I would do while on the road…well, best-laid plans and all that, I never quite continued my blog or did a video blog while traipsing around the country. Today, I’ll list my top ten lessons learned… Read More RV Lessons Learned
My wife and I have taken the stay the fuck at home orders seriously. We only go out to the grocery store, take out places, and post office. We religiously wear our masks, wash our hands, wipe everything down while in the store, etc. We canceled our trip to Texas after the Lonestar Book Event… Read More Rolling Home
While some people are going stir crazy with the stay at home orders, I’ve settled in quite nicely to the new routine. Sure, I’m a little disappointed that we weren’t able to make our maiden journey in our RV to visit my father. And…to be honest, a little anxious at not getting to see him… Read More An Extended Vacation…

Join The Mailing List! Easing into retirement wasn’t exactly the smoothest transition. I am using that excuse for the reason why I’ve been majorly slacking lately. I haven’t written a single word since retirement and this is my first blog since I retired. Yeah, I know, that’s horrible. Here’s the thing, I think developing a… Read More My New Normal
I am now into my first week of retirement and I don’t believe it has hit me yet that I don’t need to get up at the ass crack of dawn. I’m trying to stay up later to enable me to sleep in the next morning. It hasn’t quite worked yet. That will be a… Read More Retirement is Here!
I’m a curious person and random questions often pop in my head. Recently our team was delivering Holiday cards and everyone on the team was saying Merry Christmas. I usually default to Happy Holidays. Sure, I’m in Human Resources and people expect me to be ‘politically correct’, but recently I read a great post that… Read More Happy Fill in the Blank
I am renewing my boycott and general displeasure for Elf on the Shelf. Last year I did a blog about how creepy the Elf on the Shelf was and I could not understand the appeal. It reminded me of clowns and I hate clowns. Or even worse, Chucky, remember him? This year, I was willing… Read More Elf on the Shelf Pets
I’ve decided to rename duct tape to dyke tape. Because I don’t know about you, but it is my go to fix it tool. I suppose I use the word “tool” liberally. I’ve talked before about embracing the word, Dyke. I’ve also talked about my love affair with duct tape. It seemed natural to bring… Read More Dyke Tape
