It’s April already. Where in the heck does the time go? I guess it’s true what the say, life is like a roll of toilet paper – the closer you get to the end, the faster it goes. Somebody put on the brakes! Yesterday I noticed that the jets from Luke Air Force Base had […]

Miss Terry and I have what I would call an extraordinary marriage. Not only are we in love with each other, we are and have been best friends since the day we get together. The first thing we say to each other when we wake up in the morning is “I love you” and it’s […]

Terry had her last dental appointment yesterday and Dr. Hajek pronounced her officially finished and good to go. So that means that the time has come to go. This is our last day in Florida and Wednesday morning we’ll be hitting the road, heading for Arizona by way of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Yeah, I know that […]

It’s Done!

It was so cold yesterday that we never poked our noses outside all day long, and even inside with the heat pump and an electric space heater on, I was still chilly in my sweats and comfy Teepee Creeper slippers. Overnight temperatures were down below freezing and made that routine trip to the potty just […]

Yesterday was a much nicer day than the one before, lots of blue sky and in the mid-70s. So we decided to get out and have some fun. We made a stop at the post office to mail out a couple of orders, then drove about 20 miles south to Breezy Oaks Campground near Bushnell. […]

What’s Bugging Me

I’m bugged. Really bugged. Back in early October, when we were in Pennsylvania at the Hershey Thousand Trails preserve, we were invaded by stinkbugs. They were everywhere, and it was impossible to keep them out of our motorhome. They seemed to hide in every nook and cranny of our Winnebago, and just about the time […]

Yeah, and some days you’re the bug. Yesterday it was our turn to be the bug. It happens to all of us once in a while. We were up bright and early, because we were moving from Three Flags in Wildwood to the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve, about 50 miles away and we wanted to […]

For some reason, some readers took my comments in yesterday’s blog, about not enjoying the production process, where I lay out the new edition of the Gypsy Journal, as a hint that we might be planning to quit publishing. Where did that come from? As I responded in the blog comments section, and as I […]

It was so cold yesterday morning that neither one of us was in a hurry to get out of bed. If this is a preview of things to come, I think it’s going to be a long cold winter. Fortunately for us, we plan to be in Florida for a good part of the winter. […]

Almost A Good Day

Yesterday was a good day. Well, at least it was almost a good day. As promised, we slept in, because we had no place we had to be and nothing we had to do. That sure was a good feeling! And when we did wake up, we lay in bed for another hour or so, […]
