After some 30 hours of driving from Wisconsin to Florida, through wind and sun and heavy rain and avoiding a plethora of terrible drivers and not avoiding a lot of bad traffic, the wife and I arrived in Florida for our seasonal (August through May) escapades in the humid lands of the Florida peninsula. It's always a bit interesting to return to something familiar after

With the price of steem hovering near a dollar, it's an easy thing for people to stop putting the work into steemit with the apparent value of the rewards so low. I know it's been almost a week since I've posted. I wish I could say I'm intentionally avoiding steemit, and no longer care about creating content. I wish I could say I was salty
On the eve of my minor landwhale adventure to the great wasteland of North Dakota this weekend, I still found time to assemble a submission to @jayna's ever popular 50 Word Story Challenge. This time around, she challenges us with a simple little noun: lemon “Repent for your crime!” The boy stared, not understanding their language. He wasn’t from here. Was this because of
One of my favorite people on steemit, @dreemsteem, had a pirate/treasure hunting series on steemit several months ago. You'd go around and read people's posts and find certain little nuggets in there and win prizes. And talk like a pirate. I'm sure there was more to it, but that's the general thrust. Anyway, I won a prize in her treasure hunt. She asked me what
Original bathroom, prior to doing anything in particular. One does not simply remodel a bathroom. It's a long, terrible journey filled with moistness, odd smells, and physical contortions heretofore previously unknown. I embarked on a remodel of my RV bathroom starting last month. Post one, two, and three offer more information than you care to know. The overall project was to replace the plastic toilet
There comes a time in every man's beer drinking life that he must ignore the label on the bottle entirely and just enjoy the beer for what it is. This is one of those times. Karben4's Fantasy Factory IPA has one of the most intentionally weird labels I've ever seen on a bottle. Sporting a fire-breathing unicorn being ridden by a cat holding a gun,
In an attempt to get over the mild doldrums of a return from vacation, I'm looking at...vacation photos. I'm not sure if there is any sound logic or proper psychology at play there, but it helps me remember that I did stuff. Some of it was even fun. Memory is so short, except for the sad and terrible things our minds can't help but cling
My glorious little vacation to Colorado is soon coming to an end. We've left the Rocky Mountains west of Denver and are spending our last day in the city in order to be nearby for our ride to the airport the next morning. It's a Thursday, and we're expecting Friday traffic to be terrible. But for now, it's just me, my wife...and my mother-in-law. We've
So after a couple days of slow walking in a party with older folks, we managed to find a thing to do that they couldn't legitimately join us in. We had sturdy shoes, but it was a hot day. One can never have enough water, and we definitely did not bring enough. Hiking. On a trail marked as 'difficult'. The wife and I spent our
And with @jayna cooling her heels in sunny California, the rest of the 50 word camp toils away in the depths of the steemit blockchain dungeons. We pick away at the walls of our prison in the hopes a glorious 50 word nugget might spill forth so we may offer it up to our betters. Maybe someday we'll see the sun. Maybe someday we'll be
