If you have to spend the day in a big city, Seattle is one of the nicest you can choose to do it in. And commuting there on the ferry from Bremerton is the best way to do it. Yesterday morning we left Greg and Jan’s truck at a parking lot on the waterfront, and […]

Well, it’s done. I finished the new issue of the Gypsy Journal yesterday, and by the time you read this it will be sitting on our printer’s web server back in Allegan, Michigan, waiting for them to do their thing with it. This is issue 73 of our little RV travel newspaper, and we’re pretty […]

Ugly Chicks

I spent some time yesterday hanging out with ugly chicks. Really ugly chicks! Uglier than the “ladies” in the Cactus Queen beauty contest at our RV rally last week. Now, before you start calling me an insensitive jerk, and telling me that beauty is only skin deep, or asking if I have looked in a […]

We slept in yesterday morning, and then spent a couple of hours checking e-mail, catching up on our favorite RV blogs, and just enjoying not having to be any place, or doing anything. Sometimes that’s a nice feeling. We had several orders to fill that had come in during the rally, so Terry put them […]

Winter Returns

After having to get up early all week while we were getting our TV cabinets upgraded at RV Renovators, I can’t begin to tell you how nice it was to sleep in yesterday morning. Especially given the weather! We had enjoyed temperatures in the low 80s for a while, but now winter has returned to […]

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 […]

I give up! I’m not even going to whine and snivel about the cold anymore. It doesn’t do a bit of good anyway. I’m just going to buy me a team of huskies, hook them to the front end of my motorhome, and go on down the road. God seems to want me to be […]

I’m Finally Warm!

Today is officially the last day I’m waking up early for a long time! We fell into this nasty habit over a week ago, and every morning we have been getting up much too early. As Deputy Barney Fife used to say in the old Andy Griffith television show, “It’s time to nip it! Nip […]

Ups And Downs

Yesterday was one of those days that had all kinds of ups and downs. It started out bad, got good, then got frustrating, then got even more frustrating, got good for a little while, got bad again, and still ended up good. Huh? Now what the heck is Nick talking about? Trust me, I can […]

We were up bright and early again yesterday morning, a nasty habit we’re going to have to work hard to break. The inch of snow that had been predicted did not show up, and we were both relieved to see that. But it was still darned cold, and Terry flipped the engine heater on to […]
