Most people who know me well will tell you that I have a few decent qualities including a good sense of humor, a bit of intelligence, and I’ve even been accused of generosity a time or two. However, if they were honest, they would also tell you that patience is not one of my virtues. […]

Note: This story is from the May – June 2016 issue of the Gypsy Journal. Long before movie theaters, cable television, and satellites that beam entertainment right into our living rooms, people enjoyed live entertainment. During the early days of the 20th century vaudeville acts performed at just about every large and small city in […]

RVing With A Goal

Note: The blog is based upon the seminar by the same name that I present at RV rallies around the country. Why do you RV? To visit friends and family in far off places? To have your own mobile lodging when you visit theme parks or natural attractions? To have a way to escape cold […]

Does any American’s name bring forth more images of courage and patriotism than John Wayne? On and off the screen, the swaggering movie actor, never backed down from a fight, always looked you square in the eye, and never hesitated to tell you where he stood on any issue. John Wayne was, and remains, a […]

Note: This story is from the November-December 2004 issue of the Gypsy Journal. My father and uncles were part of the generation that liberated Europe from the Nazis and wrested control of the Pacific from the Japanese during World War II. When recalling their wartime experiences, I remember some of them talking about their troop […]

RVing bird watchers have wonderful opportunities awaiting them in Florida any time of year. But just as snowbirds flock south in their homes on wheels, many bird species from colder climates make Florida their winter home as well. The state’s diversity of habitats, the many migration routes that pass through, great numbers of wetlands, and climates […]

I get a lot of questions from Gypsy Journal subscribers and blog readers, and while I try to answer all of them individually, occasionally I like to share some with the folks here. Here are some of the latest. Q. Instead of selling your RV, have you considered donating it to a charity and taking […]

When Did That Happen?

We almost had a shooting at our house yesterday morning. I got up and stumbled in the bathroom half-asleep, flipped on the light, and there was some naked old pervert standing there staring at me. I’m glad I didn’t have my .45 in my hand, because Miss Terry said replacing that great big mirror would […]

In yesterday’s blog we did some time traveling as I told you about some of the things we did while we were in Alabama visiting my son Travis and his wife Geli as we were waiting out Hurricane Irma. Today I’ll catch you up on the rest of it, and on our trip home. Anybody […]
