Anybody want to buy a very nice motorhome? We thought we had two good prospects on our Winnebago and both of them stood us up this weekend. It was kind of like my dating life back in high school. The first couple actually came by last Sunday, and after spending a lot of time asking […]

 With only a few more days left before we hit the road, it’s time to begin the work of preparing and packing the motorhome for our summer RV travels. Yesterday we moved the RV out of the storage lot and over to the big concrete apron in front of our house. We weren’t sure the […]

You all know what a good cook Miss Terry is, and our friend Jim Lewis is really enjoying all of her creations. For dinner Wednesday night, she made pizza from scratch (is there any other way?), and yesterday morning it was omelets for breakfast. I’ve known Jim for over 30 years, and I’ve never seen […]

Yesterday was one of those days when I should have stayed in bed. It seemed like from the time I sat down at my desk to make the final corrections to the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, things started going wrong, and they never stopped all day long. It started out with the batteries in […]

Wow, it’s over already? That was a fast year! They say that as we get older time goes faster, and I think that must be true. So what was 2016 like for us? We started the year in Tucson, Arizona, where I was getting follow-up treatment at the VA hospital for a medical issue that […]

Thank you everybody for the birthday wishes yesterday! I tried to reply to everyone individually, but there were nearly 600 on Facebook, not to mention over 100 e-mails. I would have to hire an assistant to get to everybody. You all really made me feel very special. So how did I spend my birthday? Dinner […]

Today is a very special day for us. It’s Miss Terry’s birthday! The world received a very special gift the day she was born, and I am beyond thrilled and humbled that out of all of the men in the world, for some crazy reason she has chosen to spend her life with me. She […]

We have been hanging out here at Horseshoe Cove RV Resort in Bradenton, Florida with John and Kathy Huggins from Living the RV Dream and Charles and Chris Yust from C&C Insurance. And then Monday evening Jim and Chris Guld from Geeks on Tour pulled in. It was like we were having our own little […]

My Powers Are Greater

Never underestimate the power of positive sniveling! I wrote in yesterday’s blog that the temperature here in central Florida had dropped into the mid-60s after our friends Charles and Chris Yust from C&C Insurance arrived. But Chris learned that my powers are greater than hers. I whined, I sniveled, yes, I threw a tantrum, and […]

For years I have had a reputation for bringing bad weather with me everywhere I go. A community could be in a year-long drought, but about the time I show up they get torrential rains. Folks can be planting their gardens on a sunny spring day when I pull into a campground, and the next […]
