Yes Virginia, There Is A Mortgage Modification

This was originally posted on my original blog My Own Adventure a few years ago. Like many, I was going through financial challenges and was very close to losing my house (the one which I’m about to rent out). I reblog it every year around this time and, this year I’ve decided to share it […]

Gratitude

Thank You

I would like to give thanks for a few things.

First, I’m thankful for wheels on luggage. I know it’s hard to believe but, a long time ago in a galaxy not so far away, people were expected to carry their bags. Yup, while cavemen had invented the wheel so many years ago, it took millions more to get them put on luggage. That, my friends, is the definition of “eternity.”

This Little Piggy Went to Market

Pig

I wake up this morning and join Stewart and Chucho for coffee before they go to work and I hit the road. I depart out of Cancun in two days and am driving back to Akumal to get a bit closer. Yes, I could stay in Cancun or even in Playa del Carmen, but they’re […]

The Joys of Indoor Plumbing

Edwin K Bed

Invitation to My Shower

You are cordially invited to a very special occasion.     It’s a shower! “What?” you say. “I didn’t know you were getting married!” Nope, it’s not a bridal shower. “Oh my God, you’re pregnant!?” Uh, not that I know of. “Then what?” you ask. You’re invited to my “Life Dream” Shower!        Date: Now through […]

An April Fools’ Day Announcement – No Joke!

Book Logo

If you remember, I launched this website exactly at midnight on New Year’s Eve, not because it’s fun to read when you’re drunk (it is), but starting this project seemed like a great way to begin the new year. I did the first Drop Me Anywhere trip during Valentine’s Day (yes, there was some romance, but I’m saving it for the book).

The Good, The Bad and the Thank-You’s – St. John’s Newfoundland

Have you read Farewell Newfoundland? You should read that before continuing here. So now I’m home. But alas, we still have a few things to discuss. First, the good: I cannot say it enough, the people of St. John’s Newfoundland are some of the friendliest, most polite and just generally the nicest people you will […]
