Miss Terry has been keeping the folks at the post office busy, sending out refund checks for the unused portions of people’s subscriptions to the Gypsy Journal. If you were a subscriber, please e-mail me your current mailing address at Editor@gypsyjournal.net so we can process your refund. We have been amazed at how many people have […]

Even though he is retired and doesn’t have to, my buddy Jim Lewis is one of those freaks of nature who insists on getting up in the hours in the morning that only have one digit in them. I keep telling him that nothing good ever happens before 10 AM, but when I do, Jimmy […]

After the usual morning routine of checking e-mail, discarding the junk and forwards, and responding to those that needed it, I spent most of yesterday creating back issue CD sets and printing out our various RV guides to fill orders that came in over the weekend. I hoped to get done in time to get […]

I had a good day at the Tucson V.A. hospital yesterday. A very good day. I went in a bit apprehensive and came out feeling much better about things and with a clearer picture of what our winter schedule will be. Originally I had an appointment at the eye clinic for a long and uncomfortable […]

Two Lanes To Tucson

For some reason that we have never been able to figure out, but that many other RVers say happens to them as well, we seldom sleep well the night before we travel. Even if it’s a relatively short trip like our 122 mile drive from Apache Junction to Tucson yesterday. We turned in earlier than […]

Today is our last day in Apache Junction, or A.J. as the locals call this community at the far eastern edge of the Phoenix metropolitan area, and I don’t know where the last two weeks have gone. We’ve been busy touching base with as many people as we could, and I know we disappointed some […]

If you love your freedom, thank a vet. That sums it up, folks. Without the sacrifices made by our military members past and present, you and I would not have the freedoms we enjoy and all too often take for granted. And while you’re thanking that vet, thank his or her family members, too. If […]

Well Done, Heartland

When some 50 employees at Heartland RV in Elkhart, Indiana were called off the job this week and told to report to the company’s main building, they must have wondered what was going on. Especially given the volatile RV market, which has had plenty of ups and downs in recent years. Even when you work […]

What The….?

We woke up bright and early yesterday morning, and even though I really wanted to just snuggle back down into my pillow and go back to sleep, I dragged myself out of bed. I didn’t want to leave that warm comfy bed but we planned to go to the Escapees Chapter 45 luncheon here in […]

Summer’s Coming

The folks up north, where they’ve had snowfall after snowfall, may not believe it but summer really is coming. In fact, I think it’s right around the corner here in Arizona. The weatherman says we’ll be in the 90s all week. If you’re one of the people still shivering in the cold, take at look […]
