And so did Miss Terry. I haven’t asked Ron Speidel yet, but that’s two to one, so the majority wins anyway. What the heck am I talking about? Boats. A couple of times I have said that if we ever hang up the keys or buy a winter place in Florida, I would get a […]

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 […]

We’ve all heard the term putting on your big girl panties, but I was never sure exactly what it meant. Not being a drama queen? Dealing with whatever comes along like an adult? Nope. This is what it means. These are the big girl panties! Don’t ask. I don’t know, and I don’t want to […]

Yesterday was like the last few, working on the new issue of the paper. I bet you’re getting tired of reading about that, aren’t you? As I get toward the end of an issue, it takes longer to make everything fit and I have to write the stories to fit the space available. The good […]

Yesterday we drove back to the Mayo Clinic hospital to see Terry’s dad and he was sitting up in a chair looking great. We are all very pleased with his recovery and it looks like he may get to come home today. The world looks so much brighter than it did just a few days […]

It was in the upper 70s in Mesa, Arizona last week, and tomorrow we are looking at 62° and rain with a low of 38° predicted. Yes, Nick is in Arizona! I have to apologize to my friend Mark Didelot. Mark called me yesterday morning but I was so out of it that I’m not […]
