To say that we are humbled by the many, many responses we got after our announcement that this was the last issue of the Gypsy Journal would be an understatement. All day long yesterday I answered emails and texts and Facebook messages, and read comments on the blog from so many people thanking us for […]

Most of yesterday was spent getting the initial 5,000 mile oil change and check-up on our Pacifica, then running some errands in Daytona Beach, and stopping for dinner at Hibachi Grill & Supreme Buffet, the best Chinese buffet we have found in the area. So rather than bore you with the details of all of […]

Congratulations Carol Zack, winner of this week’s drawing for an audiobook of Big Lake, the first book in my Big Lake mystery series. We had 180 entries in this week’s contest. Stay tuned, because a new contest starts soon. As I wrote in the blog a few days ago, somebody had started a rumor that […]

Yesterday we tackled a problem that has been bothering us for a while, remounting our flat screen TVs in both the living room and bedroom. The folks at RV Renovators in Mesa, Arizona did a good job of rebuilding our TV cabinets last winter, but after the job was done, we realized that we needed […]

We slept in yesterday morning, and then spent a couple of hours checking e-mail, catching up on our favorite RV blogs, and just enjoying not having to be any place, or doing anything. Sometimes that’s a nice feeling. We had several orders to fill that had come in during the rally, so Terry put them […]

I spent most of yesterday crossing chores of my To Do list, and even though we had a little setback, I actually got a lot accomplished. That’s always a good feeling. The first order of business was to call some of the commercial mail services in the area to find one to handle mailing out […]

I try to be upbeat in this blog, but anybody who knows me knows that I don’t pull any punches either, and I give you the good with the bad. Not to be a downer, but today I have a couple of the bad to share. Even though I am married to the best cook […]

When our friend Cindy DuBois told me about the Ethel M. Chocolate Company factory in nearby Henderson, Nevada, taking a tour went to the very top of my bucket list! After all, chocolate is the fourth major food group, right? Mere minutes after I told my pal Greg White about the factory tour, there was […]

Things are really happening fast around here! The Yuma Fairgrounds is filled with RVs here for the Arizona Good Sam rally, and we have run into several of our friends who are here for that rally, and will be staying over for our Western Gypsy Gathering rally afterward. Yesterday morning our friends Ed and Stevie […]

I wrapped up the new issue of the Gypsy Journal late in the afternoon yesterday, Miss Terry got it proofed, and today we’ll send it over to our printer for final tweaking and printing. If all goes according to plan and if the angels are smiling on us, we’ll get it back and mailed by […]
