Yesterday started with the grandkids swarming in to give us hugs and kisses. Can you think of a better way to start the day? I sure can’t! I’ve been working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, which has been a slow process because the kids love hanging out with us, and it’s hard […]

A Lot Going On

It seems like nothing ever gets cheaper, even if our income stays the same. That’s why Millenicom customers hoped that the announcement of yesterday’s price increase was just a bad April Fool’s Day joke. Unfortunately, it wasn’t. Millenicom has been providing its customers real bargains on internet service; $69.99 a month for 20 gigabytes of […]

Fun With Newbies

I know it’s not nice but if you’re an experienced RVer, you have to admit that watching newbies set up is always fun. Yesterday morning some folks pulled in next to us with the requisite shouted directions, managed to get the campground utilities hooked up, and then spent the next 90 minutes trying to aim […]

Thank you all for your wonderful e-mails and blog comments about our anniversary yesterday. They are very much appreciated. Unfortunately, we are in the process of consolidating all of our various websites and blogs into one master account, and in the process it looks like the comments may have disappeared.

A Change Of Plans

We had planned to go to Benson and drop off sample copies of the Gypsy Journal yesterday and our plan for the next few weeks was to stay here at the Pima County Fairgrounds in Tucson until December 20, when we would head back to Apache Junction to spend Christmas with Terry’s family. But a […]

Uglier By the Minute

Brrr! Break out the long johns. It got down into the mid-30s overnight here in Tucson and the next few days are only supposed to get into the mid to upper 60s. I highly disapprove! As I reported in a blog a few days ago, on my visit to the V.A. Hospital here in Tucson […]

Rainy Days

The weatherman was predicting a cold, wet weekend for most of the Southwest and he sure didn’t lie! The rain started falling about midnight Thursday and it rained hard off and on all night long. Friday morning Russ and Debbie Davis came over to buy copies of the printed versions of Big Lake Lynching and […]

We had planned to leave the Westminster Elks lodge today and start the 350 mile trip to Gillette, Wyoming for Escapade. But then we asked ourselves if we would be better off to hang out here another day and get some of our camp guides printed out, and then leave Thursday instead. However, even though […]

Any author who’s going to survive for very long needs to grow a thick skin, because there are going to be people who don’t like your books. You will get bad reviews, and occasionally even e-mails telling you why they don’t like your work. This can be a positive if they are legitimate complaints that […]

Warming Up

The last couple of days have been nice, with yesterday down in the mid-70s. But today it will be in the 80s and the next few days will bring us temperatures in the low 90s. Summer is on its way, and the desert is no place to be in an RV. We’re leaving Apache Junction […]
