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 to everyone who sent us congratulatory anniversary e-mails, and posted Facebook comments or comments here on the blog yesterday. You all make us feel very special and very much loved. We woke up to pouring rain yesterday which continued well into the afternoon, accompanied by thunder and the occasional flash of lightning. We […]

We Like Buc-ees!

We were up early again yesterday morning, something we’ve done all too much of lately. That’s a habit we have to try really hard to break. It’s starting to get out of hand. After checking morning e-mails, storing the last things away inside the motorhome for traveling, and unhooking our utilities, we were ready to […]

A Great Afternoon

One of the best things about being an RVing author is having the ability to travel like we do. It has allowed us to go places and do on location research for my books and for stories for the Gypsy Journal, to soak up the local atmosphere to try to add to the realism of […]

What, Me Worry?

I got an e-mail the other day from a blog reader asking me if I was worried about crime problems when we were camping at the Colorado River Thousand Trails preserve in Columbus, Texas, and then Pleasant Valley RV Resort in Mission, since both places were so close to the Mexican border. Actually, Columbus is […]

Texas Two Lane Roads

We love traveling the two lane roads that wander through America’s countryside and small towns. They usually take a little longer than crossing the country at high speed on the super slab, but it’s worth the time. I always tell people that Denny’s in Paducah, Kentucky and Denny’s in Kingman, Arizona are the same. That’s […]

Mission, Here We Come!

Yesterday was a beautiful day here at the Colorado River Thousand Trails preserve in Columbus, Texas. Blue sky, a light breeze, and about 70 degrees. It would have been a good day for kite flying, but I was focused on getting as much done as possible on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal because […]

Small Town Texas

I needed a break from working on the paper so we took the afternoon off to check out Columbus, the small town just a couple of miles from the Colorado River Thousand Trails preserve where we are staying. This is a typical small Texas town, but one with a lot of history to it. Columbus […]

We Did It Again

Yesterday was another dreary, rainy day here at the Colorado River Thousand Trails preserve in Columbus, Texas. We didn’t want to leave our cozy bed and had to force ourselves to get up sometime after 10 a.m. So much for our commitment to getting up earlier in the day. When we finally did get in […]

In an effort to rearrange our sleep schedules, Terry and I have been making it a point to get to bed earlier and wake up earlier, but we decided to turn off the alarm and yesterday morning. I was hoping to sleep until after 9, but a little before 8 a.m. the telephone rang. It […]
