“Little Things” travels cross country!

After taking the newlyweds to California on a surf adventure, “Little Things” was ready for a hiatus. For the next five months, most of her time was spent lounging behind the kids’ home, with only sporadic visits by Matt, Adria, and Cora, when she became their private backyard retreat. But, those times kicking back were about to change. Rumors about…… Continue reading “Little Things” travels cross country!

The little camper that could…

…until it couldn’t. Celebrating the golden years of a Great Western camper. When I was a kid, back in the 70’s, our pop-up trailer represented family time.

Soak it up!

The groundhog spoke on February 2, 2016 to his faithful followers; the clouds gathered that fateful day, blocking any remote chance of the little fellow seeing his shadow. On that same day, the ground shook in the North East where people fell to their knees, bowing to the almighty ‘hog’. No more hiding in our burrows; the time would quickly be upon the masses where the…… Continue reading Soak it up!
