Miss Terry loves the fiber arts. Spinning, weaving, crocheting, and knitting. You name it and she does it. So she was really looking forward to the Michigan Fiber Festival in Allegan this weekend. Allegan is about 90 miles from Elkhart Campground, and we got there about 11 a.m. We were only a few steps inside […]

If I had a dollar for every time somebody asked us how we manage to live together in the relatively small confines of a motorhome, or heard somebody say, “We couldn’t do it fulltime, we’d kill each other” I could probably retire and live quite comfortably. One of the most common questions I get when […]

Miss Terry loves farmers markets and craft fairs and such, so yesterday we drove to Astoria for the Sunday Market. As it turns out, we got a two-fer, two great things in one trip! Every Sunday during the summer they close several blocks of a street in the downtown area for the market, which draws […]

On our last visit to this area we discovered a great place called Jack’s Country Store in Ocean Park, twelve miles up the Long Beach Peninsula, that really impressed us. So yesterday we went back for another visit. Jack’s is like the old time general stores we have seen in the Amish communities of Indiana, […]

Saturday night was very cold and I don’t think it got much over the high 50s yesterday. So it was a good day for staying home and writing. So that’s what I did, knocking out about 4,000 words in my current work in progress. It was one of those perfect writing days when the words […]

Now that we’ve got the new issue of the Gypsy Journal finished and shipped off to the printer, it’s time to get back to the fun stuff. It’s a lucky man who considers his work “fun stuff.” Between proofing the paper as I was working on it, Miss Terry was also proofing a new book, […]

Terry is really hooked on the fiber arts, and for a long time now she has been drooling over a website for a place called The Woolery, located in Frankfort, Kentucky. Terry said they have anything and everything that the knitter, hooker, weaver, or spinner could ever want or need. (Get your mind out of […]

We were up at the ungodly hour of 7:30 AM yesterday, to make the drive to Allegan, Michigan, where our printer is located, and where they are holding the Michigan Fiber Festival this weekend. Miss Terry is really into the fiber arts, spinning, weaving, crocheting, anything to do with them. She had never been to […]

There’s nothing I love to see more in the world than Miss Terry’s smile. Even after all of these years together it melts me every time I see it. And I sure got to see it yesterday! Terry loves working with fibers; yarn, wool, silk, you name it and she loves it. She’s a very […]

We love small town festivals, and in our years on the road, we’ve been to many of them, from coast to coast and border to border. We’ve seen Mexican dancers at Verde Valley Days in Camp Verde, Arizona; tapped our toes to bluegrass music at the Tennessee Fall Homecoming in Clinton, Tennessee; watched basket weavers […]
