It was in the upper 70s in Mesa, Arizona last week, and tomorrow we are looking at 62° and rain with a low of 38° predicted. Yes, Nick is in Arizona! I have to apologize to my friend Mark Didelot. Mark called me yesterday morning but I was so out of it that I’m not […]

Slugfest

As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, I spent most of the day being a slug, just napping on the couch. The slugfest continued Saturday. I tried to get some work done but my head was just too foggy to concentrate. So it was back to the couch. I shouldn’t be tired, because pretty much all […]

A Wasted Day

Yesterday was a totally wasted day. The phone rang about 9 A.M. and it was the manager of Patio Gardens, the mobile home park where we always stay when visiting Miss Terry’s parents in East Mesa. The park has half a dozen RV sites and we have stayed in the same site the last three […]

To Each His Own

I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised when three different people sent me rather terse e-mails after reading yesterday’s blog, in which I said that we don’t like the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, which is a popular snowbird roost for thousands of RVers, who return there year after year. One lady said “I don’t […]

Red Rock Country

We spent the day yesterday exploring one of the most scenic places in the American Southwest; the red rock country around Sedona, Arizona. If you haven’t explored this wonderland of colorful rock formations and high desert, you really should put it on your bucket list. Located between Cottonwood and Flagstaff, and east of Interstate 17, […]

Yesterday was the last full day of the 2011 Western Gypsy Gathering rally, and it was another busy one, filled with fun, laughs, and some excitement we could have done without. Miss Terry was up and out the door before me, to get the morning coffee and doughnuts ready. Just as I was getting out […]

Crossing Them Off

I spent most of yesterday crossing chores of my To Do list, and even though we had a little setback, I actually got a lot accomplished. That’s always a good feeling. The first order of business was to call some of the commercial mail services in the area to find one to handle mailing out […]

Remittance Man

I have decided that I am at the point my life where a career change is due. I have loved being a writer and publisher for most of my working days, and have enjoyed some success at it, but it’s time to move on and try something new. I am going to become a remittance […]

The Day After

We are confirmed night owls, never going to bed before midnight or 1 a.m., if not later. But Friday night, after a week of getting up early and going to bed late during the rally, Terry was sound asleep by 10 p.m., and less than an hour later, I was sawing logs too. Saturday morning […]

Last Day In AJ

This is our last day in Apache Junction, or AJ, as the community is known locally. The last six weeks have gone by in a blur, and while we are more than ready to scratch our bad case of hitch itch, we wish we had more time to spend with Terry’s parents and sisters, who […]
