I hope everybody had a safe and sane Fourth of July, and I hope your dogs weren’t freaked out by all the fireworks. Over the years I have had some dogs who went totally ballistic at the sound of fireworks, and others who completely ignored them. We had a quiet day at home, doing some […]

Warning: This is more of a Bad Nick blog than a regular blog, but I think it needs said. Happy birthday to my country. If I haven’t said it lately, I love you. I love the personal freedoms we all have because millions of brave men and women laid their lives on the line, and […]

Bad Nick Goes Flying

Readers keep asking me what happened to Bad Nick, and if I’ll be posting any more to the Bad Nick Blog. I enjoyed doing it and I miss being able to spout off about all kinds of things that Miss Terry tells me I can’t talk about in the Gypsy Journal or this blog. But […]

Hot Weather RVing Tips

My cousin Beverly called the other day to tell us it was 108 degrees in Tucson. There’s a reason I stay out of Arizona in the summer. Although I’ve seen some days here in northern Indiana when it felt just as hot. Of course, fans of the desert will tell you that while it does […]

We love exploring new places and seeing new sights but it seems that every time we visit someplace new, somebody tells us we missed something there that we really should have seen. Miss Terry tells them that we do that on purpose so we’ll have an excuse to go back. There are some places we’ve […]

Except for a Swiss Army knife, can you think of anything more versatile than the simple ball bungee? As RVers, what would we do without them? They’re like elastic duct tape and no recreational vehicle should be without a ready supply on hand. A Ball bungee is a short piece of rubber bungee cord looped […]

Never Enough Hours

It seems like there are never enough hours in a day to accomplish everything I want to do. Yesterday was a good example. We started the day visiting with Tiffany, who comes out to the motorhome every morning for coffee with Terry. It was Tiffany’s birthday, so I had to tease her about getting older, […]

I want to start the day by wishing my daughter Tiffany happy birthday. Wow, was it really 32 years ago I first held that beautiful little girl? Where did the years go? Today she’s a grown lady with kids of her own. But you know what? Dad still loves holding her. Tiffany, I love you […]

A Lot Going On

It seems like nothing ever gets cheaper, even if our income stays the same. That’s why Millenicom customers hoped that the announcement of yesterday’s price increase was just a bad April Fool’s Day joke. Unfortunately, it wasn’t. Millenicom has been providing its customers real bargains on internet service; $69.99 a month for 20 gigabytes of […]

For the last 10 days we’ve been pretty much living at the hospital and then hospice with our friend Shar and her husband, getting there early and staying late. We would get home in time to check e-mail and Facebook, write a blog, and go to bed. So I have not gotten much work done […]
