We Are Humbled

To say that we are humbled by the many, many responses we got after our announcement that this was the last issue of the Gypsy Journal would be an understatement. All day long yesterday I answered emails and texts and Facebook messages, and read comments on the blog from so many people thanking us for […]

Looking Back

Our friend Jim Lewis says that Miss Terry’s cooking is going to ruin him. I’ve known Jim for over 30 years, and he never has been a big eater. But that was before he was introduced to Terry’s cooking. Now he cleans his plate, and often has seconds. Yes, it’s that good. Yesterday she made […]

Really? That’s Why?

I’ll admit I’m just an average guy, maybe even a little below average in most respects, and I guess I don’t see the “big picture.” But I’m always amazed at the things people find to worry about. I received two emails from people yesterday saying they were canceling their summer travel plans because of Great […]

Why?

I heard from somebody yesterday who was headed south in the middle of the bad storms that are chewing up the Carolinas. He said it was raining so hard that he could not see his friend’s motorhome, less than 100 feet ahead of him, but they were making good time in spite of the downpour. […]

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 […]

The Mighty Bungee

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 […]

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 […]

Back To Santa Fe

No, not that artsy-fartsy New Mexico city that we were disappointed in when we visited last summer. Today we’re headed back to Santa Fe RV Park in Apache Junction for a week or so. We want to spend some time visiting with Terry’s parents, and to check in with our friends Jim and Shar Lewis, […]

I get a lot of e-mail. Not counting the forwarded jokes, cartoons and conspiracy theories, missives from hot horny college girls who want my portly posterior, and that nice man in Africa who wants to share his $20 million dollars with me, I get at between 30 and 50 e-mails on an average day. Sometimes […]

Conehead

Did you ever see those plastic cones they put around a dog’s head to keep it from getting someplace it shouldn’t be biting or licking? I kind of feel that way right now. We were up by 6:30 yesterday morning, which is an ungodly hour even if it’s 80 degrees outside and you’re going to […]
