Family, Fulltime RVing

I woke up on this Christmas morning thinking of my grandkids and great grandkids opening their presents and wishing I could see that. This is just one of the holidays I’m not with them since I gave in to my wanderlust and fulfilled my lifelong dream of travel in 2001. I realized that the first […]

I think everybody needs a “cool and crazy” uncle in their lives and my Uncle Curtis fit that bill to a T for me. I don’t know what year the picture above was taken, but today is his Memorial Service in New Orleans. And as much as I will always honor and remember him, I […]

April 3, 2016 – Yesterday was not only a blue sky day, it was a flying high day!  I’ve had the nasty kind of blues dealing with the gloom and doom issues surrounding the Norcold refrigerator failures, fires and ineffective recalls and I felt like I’d been living under a dark cloud of frustration. I’ve […]

This picture is from a card I just came across that my mama gave me in 2001 when I was getting ready to take off for the fulltime RVing lifestyle.  It’s hard to believe that was 14 years ago. And in some ways it’s hard to believe it’s been a year today since my mama […]

Family, Fulltime RVing

In reading questions from people wanting to become fulltime RVers, one of the most frequent concerns is all the stuff they have – what to keep and what to get rid of – whether to pay for storage or just let everything go. In 2001 when I started fulltime RVing it took a few garage […]

Family, Favorite Memories, Fulltime RVing

My mama, Bertha LeBlanc Quimby, left this earthly life on Sunday, November 23, 2014.  She was 88 years old and her physical body and mental capacity had declined to such an extent that near the end we all prayed for her release from the pain she had been in for too long. Once she told […]

July, 2013 While I was planning a trip to visit family near Columbia, SC, I was so glad to find this scenic state park so close to them.  I’m including pictures and info below not included on Malia’s Miles Sesquicentennial pages featuring the park overview, campgrounds and trails with many more pictures and details.  If […]

When I was at my brother’s house in SC in April, I stayed in their guest room one night and above the bed was this framed picture of my daddy. My daddy, his Army medals and flag that draped his coffin when he died in April, 2002 This was a gift to my brother from […]

Johnny and Lois had taken my mom to Swan Lake before when my Aunt Wilma was visiting, so I was glad they wanted to return while I was here.  It’s definitely my kind of place as swans are some of my very favorite creatures and here is the only place in the world where you […]

Mom started her day with her own Easter basket and she looked every bit as excited as any little kid on Easter morning! Definitely the most direct path to my mom’s heart is chocolate, with a few “peeps” thrown in to really help her diabetes!  Oh well, as she says, “If I can’t have my […]
