I didn’t get much accomplished yesterday because the night before I started feeling crappy and by morning I felt like somebody had worked me over with a baseball bat. So except for running an errand with John Huggins it was pretty much a lost day. The one thing I did get accomplished was to go […]

First of all, I want to thank everybody for your birthday greetings on the blog, by e-mail and on Facebook. You all make me feel very special. And speaking of birthdays and special people, today is our friend Elaine Loscher’s birthday. It’s never polite to ask a lady her age, but I’m pretty sure Elaine […]

If we look like we are sporting nice suntans the next time you see us, take a closer look because it’s not what it seems. What you are actually seeing is rust. Yeah, it rained that much yesterday. The storm that has been raging across the country had lost a lot of its momentum by […]

After five weeks exploring Virginia, it’s time to reluctantly move on. But there is no doubt in our minds that we’ll be back again and again. This trip we confined our visit to the state’s Middle Peninsula, what locals call the Rivah Country, on the western side of Chesapeake Bay. There is so much to […]

Or even dark of night can keep us from finding funny and oddball mailboxes as we travel the country in our motorhome, and we’ve collected pictures of some interesting ones along the way. I posted a blog with some of our favorites a couple of years ago that was well received, and ever since, readers […]

Congratulations to Bryan Carbonnell, this week’s winner of the Gypsy Journal drawing for an audiobook of the Journals of Jacob and Hyde by my friend Randall Morris. Stay tuned, because a new contest starts soon! When we checked in here at the Chesapeake Bay Thousand Trails a week ago the ranger had warned us that […]

It finally cooled down yesterday, with a high of 77 degrees, which was 20 degrees less than what it was when we arrived here a week ago. To me that’s just about perfect. There was a gentle breeze much of the day and I was tempted to break out my Revolution kite but I had […]

It started raining a little after midnight and continued for most of Saturday, like we needed more of it. The ground is saturated and water is standing in puddles everywhere. And we have more forecast for today. The rain didn’t really impact us because we’ve been busy labeling and stuffing envelopes pretty much nonstop. Except […]

Except for a quick trip to the dumpster I haven’t left the motorhome. Actually, I pretty much haven’t left my desk. But the good news is that I’ve only got a little over three pages left to go on the new issue of the paper. That trip to the dumpster was enough. There are a […]
