Up to the UP

Thirty days ago we arrived in Petoskey, Michigan with plans to stay here two weeks and then continue to the Upper Peninsula on our way to Wisconsin and Minnesota for the remainder of the Summer. As previously mentioned, a manufacturing defect is causing us… Continue Reading “Up to the UP”

You Think You Might Know – But You’re Not Sure

June 22 marks two months living full time in Julie, our Newmar Dutch Star motorhome. Here’s what we have learned so far: Living in our “tiny home” has not been that big of an adjustment. We still brought too much stuff. Hooking up the… Continue Reading “You Think You Might Know – But You’re Not Sure”

Asleep At The Wheel

On the phone with Verizon’s inept tech support team for seventy three minutes, so I figured I’d pass the time and share a memory from my bottled water days. This happened in Ludlow, Massachusetts while I was General Manager for Aqua Cool Bottled Water.… Continue Reading “Asleep At The Wheel”

Tomorrow, June 17, is a full moon, so – here’s my take on full moon freaks. March 1995. Watertown, Massachusetts. I was halfway through a nine month project to create an outbound call center (OK, let’s call it what it was… a telemarketing center).… Continue Reading “Watertown Weirdo”

On Monday, June 3 we spent the day visiting Mackinac Island which is about an hours drive North from Petoskey, Michigan. The drive up there was reasonably scenic with sightings of deer as soon as we left our campground. This island is less than… Continue Reading “Mackinac Island Visit”

One Lake, four cows and two Uzi’s in the rain

This quaint Western Massachusetts town of 1,100 was settled in 1764. Country music singer and former lead singer of Stained, Aaron Lewis calls Worthington home and references it in a number of his songs: ‘So I just passed the sign that welcomes me to… Continue Reading “One Lake, four cows and two Uzi’s in the rain”

Confessions Of A Hot Dog Pimp (Part 2)

(In retrospect, Pimp #1 was far too wordy, even by my standards, so I’m breaking it into two 1,000 word segments. Thanks Todd and Lynn for the sanity check!) I saw fights and brawls better than any Pay-Per-View subscription. Most were just guys pushing… Continue Reading “Confessions Of A Hot Dog Pimp (Part 2)”
