Most of yesterday was more of the same thing it has been for the last few days, working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. I got eleven more pages done, and have sixteen left to go. You’re probably getting tired of hearing the same thing every day, but right now we’re not on the road, so I don’t have much new to tell you. Sorry.
Sometime in the afternoon we took a break to run in to The Villages so Terry could pick up some stuff at WalMart. Yes, the dreaded Wally World. Given my commitment to avoid big box stores until well after the commercialism that once was Christmas is over, I stayed out in the Explorer and read my Kindle.
Actually, Terry said it wasn’t all that busy. The longest part of the shopping trip was the time she spent waiting in line to check out because the clerk was very slow. The other line is always faster, right?
By the time she was done it was pushing 5 PM and we were both hungry. There is only so much leftover turkey I can handle in a week, so we stopped at Golden Corral for dinner. We have eaten at a lot of Golden Corral buffets across the country, and while many are very good, others are just so-so at best. This one was pretty good, the service was decent and the food was fresh.
Back at home, I worked on the paper until about 11 PM while Terry worked on a crochet project. One of her favorite movies of all time, Somewhere in Time, was on one of the movie channels so we watched that. Definitely a chick flick. The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island looked a lot better in the movie than it did during our visit several years ago.
Our pal Al Hesselbart, historian for the RV Museum up in Elkhart, Indiana, is spending the winter at an RV park in Bushnell, about twenty miles from here. He’s going to come by today and we’ll swap a few lies and visit for a while.
If you’re going to be in this area in early December, don’t forget the TechnoGeek Learning Rally at Paradise Oaks RV Resort in Bushnell December 2-9. Put on by TechnoRV and Geeks on Tour, it will be devoted to all of the electronic goodies we all love, but don’t have a clue how to get the most out of. There will be seminars on digital cameras, Picasa, Blogger, Smartphones, RV Electrical Safety, Computer Safety, Windows, and more. Check out the rally’s Facebook Page for more information.
