Sex, Drugs and Rock-n-Roll

Sunday, 9 Jun 2019 | Views [89]

I SAW ELTON JOHN LIVE AT MADISON Square Garden in the summer of ’82.  I can’t imagine what my host paid the scalper but our seats were only 50 feet from his piano.  Sure, I liked his music — Daniel, Your Song, Honky Cat ... Read more >

One Step Closer

Friday, 7 Jun 2019 | Views [103]

WE’RE ONE STEP NEARER TO LEAVING.  Jim from Colorado Springs gave us a deposit on the RV, we can live in it until 30 June — and the check cleared — so that’s a burden lifted.  We still have the F-150 but we have offers ... Read more >

A New Chapter

Wednesday, 22 May 2019 | Views [123]

THE LATE MAY SNOW SHOULDN’T HAVE SURPRISED US.  We’ve lived in Colorado long enough to know not to count winter out until June.  But the cold and dreary weather did catch us unawares — we were wearing shorts last week —... Read more >

Magnolia Table

Friday, 10 May 2019 | Views [121]

AIR ALASKA'S FLIGHT TO LOVE FIELD was OK despite some rough air over Dallas and a 45-minute delay getting to the gate.  We were staying overnight at the Baymont where we left the truck, so it hardly mattered.  And thanks to the onboard self-... Read more >

All Ashore That's Going Ashore: San Francisco

Tuesday, 7 May 2019 | Views [97]

DAYS AT SEA MELDED TOGETHER as we cruised towards San Francisco, the slowly (but steadily) dropping temperature and the every-other-day time change were the only indicators we were heading northeast.  We scanned the night skies looking for the ... Read more >

A Sailin' We Will Go!

Thursday, 11 Apr 2019 | Views [120]

YOU MUST THINK US TERRIBLY SPOILED — dilettantes, perhaps.  Maybe so, but life is so short and let’s face it, you are dead for so long.  So we are off again, this time on a 24-night South Pacific cruise from Auckland NZ to San ... Read more >

Hope Springs Eternal

Tuesday, 9 Apr 2019 | Views [101]

PECAN GROVE RV IN LAKE VILLAGE, ARKANSAS wasn’t at all like what we had hoped.  We had planned to stay two nights but it was raining so hard we could barely tell the Lake from the Village.  So after hooking up the water, sewer and electric ... Read more >

Our Life on the Mississippi

Saturday, 6 Apr 2019 | Views [70]

MOST OF THE RIVERBOATS ARE GONE NOW, but would-be riverboat gamblers have many options along the Mississippi.  We set up camp at the Ameristar Casino’s RV park, just across the road from Ole Man River in Vicksburg MS.  The big draw for ... Read more >

Play Ball!

Monday, 1 Apr 2019 | Views [77]

OUR FIRST STOP WHEN WE RETURNED TO THE US (after doing several loads of laundry) was to a ballgame — beisbol in Miami.  This is the longest we've ever come for a game, four-hours driving each way.  Marlins Park is beautiful with the ... Read more >

Old Friends in Florida

Friday, 1 Mar 2019 | Views [79]

ROD AND LOIS ARE OLD FRIENDS WHO HAVE appeared in these musings before.  They split the year between their beach house in NJ and their place in Rockledge FL.  We missed them on the Atlantic coast of Florida in November but had a chance to ... Read more >

Happy Birthday to My Fair Lady

Tuesday, 19 Feb 2019 | Views [84]

MY FAIR LADY, THE MOVIE, IS 55 YEARS OLD THIS YEAR.  For Connie’s — my own fair lady — birthday today (and, no, I wouldn't dare tell which one) we went to see Audrey and Rex on the big screen, one of those Turner Classics shown ... Read more >

Cruise Recap

Saturday, 16 Feb 2019 | Views [70]

WE’VE BEEN BACK STATESIDE FOR A WHILE now and easily slipped into our old routine.  Despite the tasty and plentiful food on the cruise, neither of us gained a pound.  Besides our birding hikes and forays around ports-of-call, Connie ... Read more >

Up In The Air

Thursday, 24 Jan 2019 | Views [47]

THE TRIP HASN’T ACTUALLY STARTED and already I have something to report.  JetBlue has a ticketing option that includes checked bags — for a fee, of course.  And I believe it comes complete with TSA pre-check which avoids the general ... Read more >

Cruisin' Again

Tuesday, 22 Jan 2019 | Views [87]

I CAN’T FOR THE LIFE OF ME REMEMBER WHERE IT CAME FROM — a travel poster for Barbados that adorned my Rutgers dorm room back in ’65.  I don't know what it was that attracted me — wasn't even sure where Barbados was —... Read more >
