No, not my age. I hit that number a long time ago, and then doubled it! I’m talking about my 31st book, Big Lake Fugitive, which I uploaded to Amazon last night. Depending on how quickly (or not so quickly) they work, it should be ready sometime today. I have had books go live in […]

Today is an important day, because today my son Travis turns 41. How in the world could I possibly have a child that old? I’m barely out of puberty myself! I thought the calculator was messed up, so I did the math three or four times. No way can I have a kid that old! […]

We were up early again yesterday, since we are trying to readjust our sleeping patterns and get to bed earlier and get up earlier than normal. We have company visiting from out of state in a couple of weeks and we kind of thought it might be polite to not sleep the day away while they […]

I was back at it again yesterday, working hard to get the new issue of the Gypsy Journal done. I thought I was doing pretty good when I noticed that I was at page 28 already of the 44 page paper. But then I had one of those rut-roh moments, followed quickly by frustration. Usually […]

It’s very often true that you get what you pay for. Sometimes when you make a purchase, it’s better to spend a little money up front for value that will last you a long time. A good example is Tilley hats. The first time I saw one I thought that they were a waste of […]

Before I came into her life and carried her away, kicking and screaming, to spend our days wandering America’s highways and byways, Terry lived in a cozy little cabin in Arizona’s White Mountains that was filled with antiques. She had everything from curved glass-fronted Hoosier cabinets to an impressive collection of oil lamps. But these […]

Really? Again?

This time of year you can always depend on two things here in Arizona’s White Mountains; one is that it’s going to be windy, and the other is that the weather will change more often than a politician’s campaign promises. We’ve been here over three weeks and most of the time the weather has ranged […]

It’s cold here in Arizona’s White Mountains. Damn cold! The high yesterday was only 57 degrees, and it got down to 35 last night! But that wasn’t as bad as today, when the high is only predicted to be 46, with a low of 29 and rain/snow. And did I mention the strong winds? The […]

Weekend Warriors

Weekend warriors – you gotta love them. Some fulltime RVers tend to get the attitude that the campground is their private reserve and resent it when the weekend campers arrive on Friday with their campfires, kids, and dogs. This is mostly because of the relatively few who don’t understand campground etiquette and allow their dogs […]

The bad weather kept us inside again yesterday, and I’m running out of things to tell you about. We basically did the same old thing, eating, writing, some chores around the motorhome, etc. So rather than bore you with the same details all over again, I decided to dust off and update a blog from […]
