We are running into one frustrating snag after another with our Arizona Gypsy Journal Rally and we are teetering on the edge of whether or not to even hold it, so I’m going to vent a little bit here, if you will allow me. Two years ago the fairgrounds changed the starting time for our […]

A Lot Accomplished

A lot has been accomplished in the last few days, and it’s a good feeling. Very good, indeed! I worked hard on the paper again all day yesterday, and by the time I knocked off a little before midnight I had the new issue of the Gypsy Journal finished, except for the front page photo. […]

Thank you to everybody who e-mailed yesterday expressing concern for my health issues. I spent most of the day resting under the air conditioning vent, I must have drank a couple of gallons of water, as well as Propel, and by the end of the day I was pretty much back to normal. Or at […]

I’ve had a chance to read over all of the feedback forms from our Yuma rally, and Terry has most of the paperwork wrapped up. Much of the results are about what I expected, though some are a bit surprising. There are always a lot of feedback forms that tell us we’re doing a good […]

Thank you to everybody who left comments or sent e-mails in response to yesterday’s blog. You help me reaffirm to myself that it’s okay to be selfish and put ourselves first once in a while. Terry and I are both the type who always want to please others, but we are discovering that, just as […]

Tom and Barbara Westerfield had been here at the Pima County Fairgrounds RV Park the last four nights, and yesterday morning it was time for them to head on down the road looking for new adventures. After they had pulled out of their site they stopped across from our rig to hook up their Jeep […]

We haven’t finished all the paperwork yet from our recent Arizona Gypsy Journal rally, but the clock keeps on ticking and the calendar pages keep on turning. For those of you who have been asking, online registration is now open for the Ohio Gypsy Journal rally, which will be September 3–7 in Celina, Ohio. This […]

Yesterday was the last full day of the Arizona Gypsy Journal rally, and after coffee and donuts this morning, everybody will be pulling out and hitting the road. Some will be staying in nearby RV parks, others will be heading back to their home bases in different parts of the country, and others will be […]

Greg Was Right

Okay, I admit it, my friend Greg White was right. Last September when we were shopping for our iMac computers, Greg kept telling me that while Macs have a good reputation, they are still computers and they still break down from time to time. Of course, I didn’t want to hear that. Greg was right. […]

Okay, I’ll admit it! I’m still not wild about Mission, Texas and the Rio Grande Valley, but I will admit we’ve really been eating well in the three days we have been here! Our friends Ron and Brenda Speidel took us to a wonderful Chinese buffet with a hibachi grill called, appropriately enough, the Hibachi […]
