We have been busy little bees here at the Mercer County Fairgrounds in Celina, Ohio as we get ready for our Gypsy Journal Rally. But we are getting a lot accomplished and things are moving right along. I reported a couple days ago that there had been a change in fairgrounds management and we were […]

We haven’t finished all the paperwork yet from our recent Arizona Gypsy Journal rally, but the clock keeps on ticking and the calendar pages keep on turning. For those of you who have been asking, online registration is now open for the Ohio Gypsy Journal rally, which will be September 3–7 in Celina, Ohio. This […]

We can spend months searching for a fantastic venue to hold an RV rally, we can recruit the best seminar presenters in the world, and we can bring in vendors offering the finest products at the best prices. We can plan every detail to the nth degree. But, the one thing we cannot control is […]

Yesterday was the third morning in a row that I was up before 9 a.m. I think I need to have some sort of intervention to break this vicious cycle! 🙁 I answered a bunch of e-mails, logged in a couple of orders for digital Gypsy Journal subscriptions, and then we started getting ready to […]

Ever since we finished our Arizona rally, I have been working on our 2011 Eastern Gypsy Journal Rally, which will be September 26-30, at the Mercer County Fairgrounds, in Celina, Ohio. This will be our fourth Eastern Rally, and the third in Celina, a friendly little town that goes out of its way to make […]

I was up later than is normal even for me on Sunday night, talking to my daughter via Facebook messenger. Tiffany has been dealing with some issues lately, and even though she’s a grown up lady with two little ones of her own, sometimes a girl just needs her dad. 🙂 I’m glad that, no […]

A Whole Lot Of Nothing

Yesterday, we did a whole lot of nothing. And it sure felt good! 🙂 During the rally last week, Terry and I were getting by on minimal sleep, and were on the go from before daylight every day until after midnight. By the time the last RV left the Yuma Fairgrounds on Friday, and then […]

We have been having a lot of fun here in Muskegon, Michigan with Berni and Rocky Frees. It is amazing how we can be apart from those two for a year, and the minute we get back together, the fun picks back up right where we left off. Yesterday they both had to work, so […]

After reading in the blog about the frustrations I was having trying to do research at the Family History Library, Roger Marble sent me some website links to articles on getting the most out of a visit to the Family History Library. I spent a couple of hours Sunday reading those articles, and then getting […]

I spent most of yesterday working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, making and receiving telephone calls about our upcoming Eastern Gypsy Gathering rally, and making plans for future rallies. I had hoped to be almost done with the new issue by now, but I got lazy and didn’t keep on top of […]
