And what do I get? No, not boney fingers! Short, pudgy, arthritic fingers that are paying the price for the last two days, when I’ve put in over ten hours a day working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. But it will be worth it when we get to send out the new […]

Maybe I’m just weird, but while most young boys my age were lusting over Annette Funicello or Sky King’s niece Penny, I was in love with Morticia Addams, the matriarch of the Addams Family on our old black and white television. Maybe it was her high cheekbones, or the long black hair, or those octopus […]

As I reported a couple of days ago, the drum on our Splendide washer/dryer combo has stopped turning on our Splendide, though it has power and the pump runs. I assumed the belt had broken and called Westland Sales, the Splendide parts and service location near Portland. Sam, the tech I talked to there, was […]

We Like Quiet Days

As much as we like traveling in our motorhome and seeing new places, and our hobbies like kayaking, geocaching, and kite flying, there’s something to be said for just having a quiet day at home, too. And that’s what yesterday was. It was a damp, gray morning, with the clouds hanging low in the sky. […]

If you’re tired of reading about kites, just skip to the bottom of today’s blog to see what Bad Nick has to say and then come back tomorrow. I’ll have something else to tell you about then. There was a kite competition at the Turnaround in Seaside yesterday, so we went down to check out […]

I planned to get some writing done yesterday, but as it turned out, it was a day devoted to three of my favorite things, old friends, old cars, and pizza. Which means it was a great day! It rained hard all night and we slept in yesterday morning, and soon after we woke up our […]

Yesterday afternoon we got the last of the new issue of the Gypsy Journal mailed out, and breathed a big sigh of relief to have that chore behind us. Since it was a gray, ugly day and not suitable for kite flying, I celebrated by taking a nap when we got back from the post […]

Et Tu, Terry?

Yesterday was the last day of the kite festival, and a little after noon we went to town and walked out on the beach to get one last look at all of the fun. There were a lot of kites flying, though not as many as on previous days, since it was Sunday and a […]

After picking up our mail yesterday, we drove down to Seaside, Oregon to make a bank deposit, since that’s where the closest Bank of America branch is. Okay, Miss Terry drove, because to get to Seaside involves crossing the Columbia River on the Astoria-Megler Bridge. If you’ve been following our travels for very long, you […]

Time To Move On

We’ve enjoyed our week here at the Escapees Evergreen Co-op, but it’s time to move on. I always worry that if I stay in one place too long they’ll find me and take me back to the home. We spent yesterday doing what we love best in this area, wandering around Port Townsend’s historic waterfront. […]
