Maya Angelou wrote a poem to celebrate AARPa€™s (American Association of Retired People) 50th anniversary.
I cana€™t say I love to cook the way some gourmet cooks relish a whole day or weekend spent in the kitchen. I love kitchens, kitchen gadgets, electrical appliances, full refrigerators, cooking pots and pretty dishes. In the spring of 2006 we bought an RV, emptied the house, put it up for sale and hit the road. I plan to talk about our RV lifestyle and the places wea€™ve seen in this blog on a regular basis. Each challenge card has a different way of setting up the cars and trucks so each game is a new challenge. The first known attempt to murder Abraham Lincoln occurred in February 1861 during his railway journey from Springfield, IL, to Washington, DC, for his inauguration. Stashower, a novelist, smartly uses the train's journey as a narrative arc, allowing him to tell the broader story of prewar America and providing insight into the traits that would make Lincoln such a great leader—his sense of humor, calm demeanor and courage. 20121 Kings 8:28 -- But please listen to my prayer and my request, because I am your servant. Our goal was to see the country in no big hurry and hopefully, meet some interesting people along the way.

I love the smell of bread baking, homemade soup on the back burner, and a fruit pie cooling by the window. I find that if I have something I cana€™t quite figure out, if I sit down for a bit and focus on my knitting, the other side of my brain seems to come up with a solution.
We loved camping so much that we figured out a way to pack all our camping gear, tent, sleeping bags, cooking utensils and so forth in a duffle bag.
Somehow it wasna€™t quite so easy to get down on the ground and get into that sleeping bag.
We didna€™t think anyone could call themselves real campers unless they were down on the cold ground. Enabling JavaScript in your browser will allow you to experience all the features of our site.


Stashower (The Beautiful Cigar Girl) details how Allan Pinkerton, head of the Pinkerton National Detective Agency, managed to stop a band of rebels bent on killing the president-elect in Baltimore. And now we have the chance to relish the story of the clever and determined characters who were dedicated to his safety and to the cause for which, on April 15, 1865, he would ultimately surrender his life. Ia€™m indulging myself in the pursuits I love: reading, travel, cooking, knitting, observing and visiting people, movies and music, playing games and so on. My daughter, Candice, lives in Oregon with her husband, Mark, and our two beautiful and brilliant granddaughters who we call Q and Lou. The first thing I did was paint it white and sew red and white checked curtains for the window. Most people pinch up their face and squint their eyes as if their brain cana€™t quite compartmentalize what theya€™ve just heard. We were flying home from a trip in California and it was over the airport at a layover in Phoenix. Stashower describes a campaign-weary, nonchalant, and somewhat incautious Abraham Lincoln, traveling east toward the presidency.
Interwoven with the tale of Pinkerton and company’s efforts to foil what would become known as the Baltimore Plot, Stashower offers a rich portrait of a resolute but weary Lincoln as he makes his way, both politically and physically, to the White House. My husband and I sold our house, put stuff in storage, bought an RV, and set off to travel North America.
As I went off to college and into adulthood a library card has always been a prized possession.A  Ia€™ve lived in lots of places in my life and can count 12 different libraries where I was an avid patron.
Herea€™s something else the non-knitter may find it hard to believe: I honestly think I listen better when Ia€™m knitting. Wea€™d been talking about camping and our retirement and the possibility of getting a pop-up tent camper. The author records him arriving safely in DC after stealing through Maryland's darkened countryside and Baltimore's precincts as "a thief in the night"—at Pinkerton's behest, but in the process forfeiting a measure of political stature to his detractors, who questioned his courage and fitness for office.
Since that first kitchen Ia€™ve had a galley kitchen, a big country kitchen and a u-shaped cooka€™s dream kitchen.
When it came time to retire and downsize our belongings, what to do with all the books was the hardest part for me. Back in my business days I often wished I could have been able to knit during some of those long meetings. At almost the same time we looked at each other and said: a€?Why dona€™t we just sell the house, get an RV and then we can go camping all the time?


The tale builds methodically before shifting into dramatic mode as Pinkerton, in fewer than two weeks, uncovers and quashes the would-be assassins' designs, assisted by agent Kate Warne, the leader of Pinkerton's female undercover unit. The book starts out slow, but once Stashower lets the Pinkerton operatives loose, their race against time as Lincoln’s train speeds toward Maryland makes for an enthralling page-turner that is sure to please true crime, thriller, and history fans. We wouldna€™t have to worry about the house and yard.a€? And right there the decision was made. VERDICT Stashower's character-driven narrative and lively writing style reveal the finely honed skills of an accomplished mystery writer. We discovered we werena€™t the only ones who had the idea of selling our house and traveling in an RV. I can still have that fresh bread smell, the soup on the back burner and a fruit pie cooling by the window.A Life is good. A  I learned something from every man I met or exchanged emails with, and Lou taught me a few words in Spanish.A  Ole!
We can take a little walk, maybe get our feet wet, and then lie on a blanket and listen to the waves. I do the same thing myself, when the mood strikes.A  And how about this for being an "in tune with women" kinda guy?A  A few days after I had ordered myself 2 new green dresses and several in black to add to my collection from a mail order company named Newport News, he sent an email asking:A  "So, what are you wearing right now?
A  For Christ Sake!!A  How about saving the Taxpayers a buck?A  In addition to that $6 million you've already blown by hovering and covering me, and scheduling a proper Face to Base meeting in your office; at my convenience?
Dramatic, but no drama.A  Short black skirt, or long black dress?A  Heels or boots?A  Camo, or commando?
