A Quick Lesson On Smokers

 

A great thing happened the other day. I was in Cedar Key in Fred, my camper van. I saw a beautiful smoker out on the curb, waiting for the trash man or some lucky soul with great taste to pick it up. So I did! 

My friend Kevin said he'd like it, so I dropped it off yesterday. I sent him the following…

Rainbows and Smiles - Favorite Travel Photos

TGIF! I'm thinking about springtime in Crested Butte for some reason. This is one of my all time favorite photos. I took it on Elk Avenue in bustling downtown CB. 

There was one year I drove to Colorado 5 times. I have a habit of going back to places I love. I've never been to WY, ID, MT, or even UT. I'd like to do the national parks tour there. Meanwhile, possibility is this weekend, at least Saturday night may do some camping in Wekiva Springs, …

Oh, Oregon!

It's that time of year. When springtime rolls around, I always start checking the driving distance from Florida to Oregon. Then, I check airfares. I've been checking a few weeks now. The Seaside Hostel on the Necanicum River on the coast of Oregon is one of my all time favorite places. 

Trung is the owner. I remember the first time I visited. I checked in and…

Waylon Wrote a Book

My friend Waylon wrote a book. It's called "Things I Would Like To Do With You". That's such a nice opener. I can't wait to read it. He's also starting a publishing company. The big idea behind the new publishing company is that writers will get a 50% share of the profits rather than the piddly amount most writers get.

Waylon's also going to do…

Be in the Arena!

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could've done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in…

Bees on the bike trail

These bees took a time out and swarmed on a branch. They're probably looking for a new place to make a hive. I talked with the expert at Cross Creek Honey and she is going to investigate. Here's what the bees looked like a little while later:…

Orchids are so easy and beautiful!

This phalaenopsis is the most trouble free plant I've ever had. Our friends gave it to us as a dinner gift one evening. That was over 10 years ago. I do absolutely nothing to it. It lives in the shade and feeds on air and moisture. Every so often, it surprises us with some blossoms that last a long time.…

Little Herb Garden

Gifted sprouts are the best, aren't they? These herbs were gifted to me from friends just going crazy over hydroponics. I took exactly 10 minutes and planted these herbs in a huge pot on the patio. I hope they grow like wildfire. Thanks for the gifted…
