Not by a long shot! I also love touring homes of authors and past presidents, and while this may make me [...]

#RoadReads – Our Visit to Parnassus Books (Nashville, TN)

We all have destinations on our bucket list that seem so close yet so far away, don’t we? For many RV’ers, those must-sees include national parks, mountains, beaches, deserts.

Happy First Day of Fall! – The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Today is September 23, and I just had to pop on here to officially welcome the season and say HAPPY FALL to you! ????  The cooler, but not cold, temperatures. The change in the trees. Pumpkins.

#RoadRoads – Kicking Off with an Epic Re-Read

Is there any larger literary phenomena than the Harry Potter series? If there is, I honestly don’t know what it’d be.  Sure, there’s Shakespeare. But I don’t see a lot of folks knocking down that door. And of course, God had a huge hit with The Bible.  Twilight. The Hunger Games. Lord of the Rings. [...]
