I have been busy writing and doing things around the house the last couple of days, so yesterday it was time for a change of pace. After a leisurely breakfast and visiting with our houseguest, Jim Lewis, here at home for a while, we decided to take a ride and show him around the area […]

Living in an RV means living a somewhat minimalist lifestyle if for no other reason than that there is only so much room available, and you always have to be aware of how anything you bring in affects your overall cargo carrying capacity. So there are some things many fulltimers do without. One of them […]

For the last few days I’ve been getting emails and Facebook messages from folks that are at the Escapees Escapade RV rally in Essex Junction, Vermont, saying how much they miss us and wish we were there. We miss all of you, too, and we are sorry we couldn’t make it. Unfortunately, sometimes life gets […]

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 […]

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 […]

We’ve been on the go a lot lately, so we decided to make yesterday a stay at home day. But that doesn’t mean we weren’t busy. I spent a couple of hours answering a backlog of e-mail and reading some of my favorite blogs. One e-mail was typical of ones that I get at least […]

We originally booked for two weeks here at the Las Vegas Thousand Trails, which would have put us out on Thursday, the 4th, but we extended for two days and have been trying to decide when to leave for our next stop, in the Reno area. Originally our printer said the new issue of the […]

Before I do anything else, I want to wish my son Travis happy birthday today. Happy birthday “old man.” I hope you have a wonderful day. I love you. Terry likes opals, and a while back the stone fell out of her favorite opal ring, a vintage piece she really loves. So we’ve been hitting […]

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you Moms out there! I hope you have a wonderful day, surrounded by lots of love. If you have not called your Mom to tell her you love her yet today, go do it right now. She’s waiting to hear from you. Don’t worry about me and the blog, […]

Terry finally finished stuffing all of the envelopes with the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and told me she needed a day out, so we spent yesterday on the go. Well, after a delayed start, we did. With the back of the Explorer packed with bins of envelopes, the first order of business was […]
