We planned to get a lot done yesterday here at home. My goal was at least 4,000 words in my sequel to Dog’s Run, and I was hoping to get all the way up to 6,000 done. Meanwhile, Miss Terry wanted to get the 464 threads threaded through the heddles on her loom for her […]

Note: This story first appeared in the November-December, 2013 issue of the Gypsy Journal. Located off the coast of Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, Destruction Island is a low, flat piece of land with an interesting history, much of it tragic. In 1775, the Spanish schooner Sonora was anchored in the lee of the island when the […]

As I’ve said here previously, we are looking for a place to buy to use as a winter nesting spot, and maybe a fulltime home if and when we ever have to hang up the keys due to health issues or something like that. We have certain criteria that we will not compromise on, and […]

Yesterday we put the final touches on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and after Miss Terry proofed it I sent it off to our printer back in Michigan. Well, I didn’t send it, I actually uploaded it to their web server. They’ll print it this coming week and get it shipped back to […]

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 […]

On The Go All Day

We seem to be developing a very bad habit of getting up way too early in the morning, and yesterday was no exception. We were up at 7:30 again, because we had a lot to see and do. and it’s a good thing we got such an early start, because we were on the go […]

Just Throw Money At It

I used to have a friend that said he didn’t have a problem in the world that wouldn’t go away if he just threw enough money at it. Back then I didn’t really understand what he meant, but after yesterday I do. After a rainy night at the fairgrounds in Fallon, Nevada, we drove west […]

We are hanging out in Tuscaloosa, Alabama this week, visiting my son Travis and his wife Geli, so I don’t have much to write about from an RV standpoint. We’re parked at the Elks lodge, which is about five miles from their house and has full hookup 50 amp RV sites for $20 a night. […]

In The Mail

After a weekend of nonstop work, Terry finished stuffing the last of the envelopes yesterday evening and this morning the new issue of the Gypsy Journal will be in the mail. We’re disappointed in the print job this time around, and I apologize in advance. Usually our printer in Allegan, Michigan does a good job, […]

Another Busy Day

Yesterday was another busy day for us. Do we ever have any other kind? Sometimes it doesn’t feel like it. We were up a little after 9 a.m., and after one of Terry’s delicious cinnamon rolls for breakfast and answering a lot of e-mails, we drove sixteen miles to Clermont to buy enough postage stamps […]
