I don’t know about you, but I’m glad Thanksgiving is over. It used to be my least favorite holiday, except for Easter. Even as a kid I couldn’t understand how the Savior of the Christian world dying on the cross and then being resurrected morphed into some guy in a bunny suit hiding eggs in […]

A Do-Nothing Day

Yesterday was pretty much a do-nothing day for me. I don’t know if I was still feeling the effects of my medical marijuana overdose, or if I was just lazy (which could very well be the case), but whatever the reason, I just didn’t have any energy or any interest in doing anything. I did […]

Really, More Q&A

I know it’s only been a couple of weeks since my last Q&A column, but I’ve been getting a lot of questions from readers that I thought might be of interest to some of you as well, so here we go. Q. Years ago we bought a membership in Western Horizons campground chain which has […]

I Just Hit 31

No, not my age. I hit that number a long time ago, and then doubled it! I’m talking about my 31st book, Big Lake Fugitive, which I uploaded to Amazon last night. Depending on how quickly (or not so quickly) they work, it should be ready sometime today. I have had books go live in […]

Moving Right Along

My newest book, Big Lake Fugitive, is moving right along through the pre-production stages. Terry finished the initial editing and proofreading on Saturday, and yesterday I finished making all of the corrections she suggested. Then I sent it off to my second proofreader. She’s usually pretty quick, and as soon as I get back from […]

With Miss Terry busy editing and proofing my new Big Lake mystery, yesterday was a catch-up day for me as I tried to get a handle on the emails and other things I had set aside during the push to get the book done. I got quite a bit accomplished, but not nearly as much […]

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog. This is another post in a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t […]

Dangerous RV Tires

Longtime readers of our Gypsy Journal RV newspaper may remember that several years ago we were heading west on Interstate 10 in Texas when the right front tire of our MCI bus conversion literally exploded. I was doing about 65 mph and the bus immediately started heading toward the ditch on the right side of […]

Another strong round of thunderstorms came through the area yesterday, which cooled things down a bit but made it impossible to do anything outside. But that’s okay, I had plenty to do to keep me busy inside. I spent much of the day writing and knocked out a little over 5,000 words in my new […]

No Immediate Plans

I wasn’t surprised that three or four people contacted me after reading yesterday’s blog to tell me they were so excited that Terry and I are going to be RVing again, at least on a part-time basis. Obviously they didn’t read the entire blog, or else they have short-term memory loss. I’m not sure which. So, […]
