Discovering a Sad Story…

My interest really peaked when I saw T. Russell Brown's Vermont death certificate stating, "killed instantly by explosion of hot water boiler".  I had to find out the story behind this.

Southern Trails and Tails…

I love traveling even when it isn't exciting. On the other hand, the mutts are not super travelers but they tolerate us with our need to wander. Traveling with pets can be challenging at times, but keeping them happy and safe is our goal. Once we stop, they love camping, it's their home moving that bothers them.

Baseball in Georgia…

Our goal is to visit all 32 Major League parks. It may take years to complete the journey but we will try to get it done! Stadium #1 of 32 -- Atlanta Braves hosted the San Francisco Giants on May 6, 2018 at SunTrust Stadium.

The Black-footed Yellow Frog…

This cute frog has been a part of our lives for years, sitting on our bed, played with by our children as the grew and luckily never chewed by any of our dogs. The reason the frog was made in these colors was due to family lore and it was a mystery to be solved...

MacKenzie Legacy…

This blog post is an essay my father, the Rev. Carleton Schaller Jr., wrote in 1993 for the family about the history of George Ross Mackenzie (1820 - 1892), the fourth President of Singer Manufacturing Co and my great-great grandfather.

Preparing for the Road…

We are getting prepared for our journey from Florida to Virginia then to Maine and New Hampshire. The plan along the way it to hit baseball parks, historical sites and just to enjoy the ride.

Wildlife…

We have settled down in central Florida in a small community with lots of activities and a 9-hole golf course. While I have never really golfed in my life, I decided to take a stab at it. The community, Lakes at Leesburg, has about five small lakes with the golf course weaving in and out of the lakes.

Lake Dora and Dora Canal…

For my mother's birthday, we took a boat ride on Lake Dora in Mount Dora, Florida.  The ride took us across the lake through the Dora Canal, which felt tropical and was teaming with wildlife.
