We made the decision long ago not to own any more pets because one would not fit well with our lifestyle since we are on the go so much covering stories for the Gypsy Journal, and the animal would be stuck at home by itself for hours on end. But I do love dogs. Not […]

I know you’ve heard it before, the old saying that boys don’t make passes at girls who wear glasses. Don’t believe it, because this boy (okay, old man) does! Yesterday we had to drive to Mishawaka so Terry could pick up her new glasses at EyeMart. I think she looks darned good in them, how […]

A New Record

It has been miserably hot here in Elkhart the last couple of days, with temperatures up in the 90s and high humidity, which upped the heat index to around 100°. Fortunately, the basement air conditioner on our Winnebago motorhome cranks out enough cold air that even with some of the ceiling air vents closed, it’s […]

A Change Of Plans

When we left Daytona Beach RV Resort in Port Orange yesterday morning, we planned to come to the Elks lodge in St. Augustine and spend a few days, maybe as much as a week, before we continued north. One of the great things about the RV lifestyle is that if you don’t like the neighbors […]

I think one time I watched a football game on television all the way through, and then it was only because I was a guest at somebody’s house and that’s what was on. I’ve been to a couple of minor league baseball games when I lived in Tucson years ago, and when I was in […]

Book Yes, Dish No

By working pretty much nonstop except to sleep, Terry finished proofing and editing Big Lake Brewpub yesterday afternoon. I was busy making corrections as she did, and had them finished and sent it off to my second proofreader yesterday evening. Now she’ll do her thing and get it back to me and I’ll make those […]

A Milestone

I hit a milestone yesterday, 500 reviews of the original Big Lake book on Amazon, and it’s still going strong with a four star rating. Thank you to everybody who has read the book, posted reviews, and told their friends about it. You all have helped make my dreams come true. I’ve spent the last […]

Down To The Nubs

I spent much of the day yesterday getting the new digital edition of the Gypsy Journal uploaded to the internet and the link sent out to our digital subscribers. Somebody said that with all the time I’ve been at the keyboard the last week, I must be working my fingers down to nubs. They were […]

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 […]

We have been parked on Charles and Christ Yust’s lot here in the Yuma Foothills for a couple of weeks now, and Miss Terry decided that it was time she showed our appreciation. So yesterday, while I worked on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, she made a wonderful Mexican dinner of shredded beef […]
