With the new issue of the Gypsy Journal finished and sent out to our subscribers, except for logging in the renewals that came in by email, yesterday was a play day for me. Yes, I actually did get away from my desk for a while! My buddy Jim Lewis came by and we played two […]

It has been miserably hot here in Elkhart the last couple of days, with temperatures up in the 90s and high humidity, which upped the heat index to around 100°. Fortunately, the basement air conditioner on our Winnebago motorhome cranks out enough cold air that even with some of the ceiling air vents closed, it’s […]

After I mentioned a few days ago that I had told my son Travis about hydroponic gardening, a couple of blog readers expressed an interest in hearing more about it, and one person asked me what hydroponics is, saying she had never heard of it. Basically, it is a method of growing plants without soil, […]

When we left Daytona Beach RV Resort in Port Orange yesterday morning, we planned to come to the Elks lodge in St. Augustine and spend a few days, maybe as much as a week, before we continued north. One of the great things about the RV lifestyle is that if you don’t like the neighbors […]

I think one time I watched a football game on television all the way through, and then it was only because I was a guest at somebody’s house and that’s what was on. I’ve been to a couple of minor league baseball games when I lived in Tucson years ago, and when I was in […]

For the last six weeks or so we have had a lot of friends around us, readers stopping by to visit, and we spent some time with my family at a little reunion in Pinellas Park. We have loved all of it, and all of them, but we decided that yesterday was going to be […]

Yesterday was a busy day, much of it spent in Frustration City. You know that place, right? It’s where all of the bureaucrats and idiots of the world work. And I talked to a bunch of them! I get my medical care through the Veterans Administration (VA) Health System, and my primary care provider is […]

By working pretty much nonstop except to sleep, Terry finished proofing and editing Big Lake Brewpub yesterday afternoon. I was busy making corrections as she did, and had them finished and sent it off to my second proofreader yesterday evening. Now she’ll do her thing and get it back to me and I’ll make those […]

Apparently people are getting spam e-mails (not on Facebook) that say they are from me. They are NOT from me so please don’t open anything that has my name or this address NickRussell@simple.je No, that’s not the speed of our old MCI bus conversion going up a steep hill, that’s the average of how many […]

Getting packages delivered can sometimes be a hassle for fulltime RVers. Some campgrounds will allow you to have things sent to them and others will not. When that happens you have to have it sent General Delivery to the local post office, or else to a local company that accepts packages for travelers. Some of […]
