Even though they call me Gadget Boy because I always like to check out the newest electronic gadgets, that doesn’t mean I understand how any of them work. And I usually get as much frustration as I do enjoyment out of a lot of the stuff out there. Our Verizon 3G air card and wireless […]

Miss Terry spent all day yesterday working on the backlog of paperwork we have been trying to get through, while I helped as much as I could. I really hate dealing with this end of our business. It’s all work and no fun at all. But I think we are seeing a faint glimmer of […]

The title of today’s blogs says it all, because that is what I was doing all day yesterday. Grinding out pages for the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. It’s not the most exciting or glamorous part of our job, but it’s what we’re all about. And it’s what I’ll be doing for the next […]

Last night, I finished my new book, Big Lake Lynching. It sure feels good to have it done! Now it’s time for proofreading, then corrections and formatting, and hopefully I’ll get it uploaded to Amazon and Smashwords within a couple of weeks. It’s been a while coming, but I think it will be worth it. […]

Where does the day go to? Sometimes I look around me, and I realize it’s almost bedtime, and I have no idea what I did all day long! Yesterday was a good example. We woke up and stayed in bed for a half hour or so, talking about our plans for  the next few weeks, […]

Yesterday afternoon, Al and Karen Phillips came to the campground to buy our hard shell Native Watercraft kayaks. Karen is a blog reader, and I have been exchanging  e-mails with her since September. It was nice to finally put a face with a name. They are new fulltimers, from Long Island, New York, and a […]

Thursday I got some good news that really blew me out of my chair. My mystery, Big Lake, had risen to number 23 in the Paid Kindle store, number 4 in Bestsellers in Mysteries & Thrillers, and even more amazing, it was listed at number 76 on the New York Times Kindle Bestseller List! The […]

Yesterday was just another working day for us. Terry put the finishing touches on her recipe column, then waded back into the pile of paperwork that never seems to go away or even diminish, no matter how many hours she puts into it. I think all of those sheets of rally registration forms, subscription forms, […]

Years ago, in our early days as fulltime RVers, we met a very nice couple named Rick and Laurie Phillips at the Escapees Rainbows End RV park in Livingston, Texas. We struck up an immediate friendship, and crossed paths a couple of times in our travels. Over time, we lost contact, but we knew that […]

A few weeks ago, I wrote that I had purchased a new Garmin 465T trucker model GPS, and a couple of blog readers asked me to let them know what I thought of the new unit, after using it for a while. After traveling about 1,000 miles with the GPS. I have to say that […]
