Singer/songwriter John Lennon said it best – “life happens while you are making other plans.” That’s pretty much what happened with us yesterday. I had planned to spend an hour or so finishing up the new issue of the Gypsy Journal so I could print it out and Terry could proof it. But about the […]

Yesterday was another long day at the computer for me, close to ten hours, I think. But it was worth it because by the time I knocked off I was just about finished with the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. I’ve got about an hour left to go on it this morning and then […]

We lived in Arizona many years before we started fulltiming, and though a lot of people love it, especially in the wintertime, we’d much rather be in Florida. I’ll take beaches and mosquitoes over desert and scorpions any day of the week. Some people like the low humidity here in the desert, but with that […]

Our time in Tucson is over and today we leave Voyager RV Resort for Apache Junction. We’ve been here over three weeks and during that time we have not had one day to just chill out and relax. It’s been a whirlwind of annual medical appointments, working the Escapees Escapade rally, more medical stuff, and […]
