Just as it has for so much of this winter, yesterday the weather put a crimp in our plans. Again. Several years ago when we were in Florida, we went to the big Webster Flea Market, which is held every Monday, and Miss Terry really enjoyed browsing all of the vendors, and searching for bargains […]

After all of the fun and activity of my family reunion on Saturday, we had a lazy Sunday. Just as I promised in yesterday’s blog, we slept in late, then spent most of the day in the motorhome, just taking it easy. Every once in a while, a day like that is good for everybody. […]

Yesterday we drove 75 miles south to Pinellas Park, located just north of Saint Petersburg, to look at different racks for our hard shell kayaks. I love my Sea Eagle PaddleSki 435 inflatable kayak and won’t give it up, but Miss Terry is happy with her hard shell Manta Ray. We wanted to check out […]

When I first heard about Apple’s new tablet computer, I have to admit that my first reaction was “So what? I already have a desktop computer, a laptop computer, and a netbook computer. What can the iPad do that they can’t?” Then I saw my first iPad, and my immediate reaction was “I want one!”  […]

It’s windy again here in Northern Arizona, go figure. Yesterday,  for the fourth time in four weeks, Interstate 40 east of Flagstaff was closed due to high wind and blowing dust. Will it ever stop? The wind blew hard all day yesterday, with gusts over 60 miles per hour. It never let up all night […]

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that a cold front was going to bring high winds to northern Arizona, and that our trip to Flagstaff to get the new issue of the Gypsy Journal was going to be interesting. The wind started blowing hard about three a.m., and all night long it slammed into our Winnebago. […]

Every time we come back to our old hometown of Show Low, Arizona to visit my daughter Tiffany and her family, poor Terry suffers from terrible allergies. When we lived here it wasn’t as much of a problem, but having been gone for almost eleven years, she has lost  whatever immunity she had to the […]

Does anybody still believe in global warming? Except for Al Gore, did anybody ever believe in global warming? We had planned to spend a couple of months this winter in Florida, before our schedule got all messed up, but looking at the weather reports for the Sunshine State, I’m glad we didn’t. While it’s been unbelievably […]

A cold front dipping south brought very strong winds to Apache Junction, Arizona yesterday afternoon and evening. At our spot here in Pacific Manor, we are on an end site, with a six foot high block wall on one side and the rear, but even with that our old bus was rocking on its air […]
