Timing Is Everything

They say that timing is everything, and I think there’s a lot of truth to that. Did you ever stop to think about how things happen, or don’t happen, just because the timing is or isn’t right? What if you had left the house five minutes earlier? Would you have been in the middle of […]

Or at least I would if I delivered mail on the streets where these cool custom mailboxes can be found! I’m always on the lookout for funny and oddball mailboxes as we travel the country in our motorhome, and I’ve collected pictures of some interesting ones along the way. And some of my RVing friends […]

Since we came back from the Keys, we haven’t done much exploring this winter, so we decided we needed a play day yesterday. We left the campground and drove about 30 miles west to Crystal River, one of our favorite places on the Gulf Coast. Along the way, we stopped in the little town of […]

After weeks of cold weather here in central Florida, it warmed up considerably yesterday, with a high of 82 degrees. And it looks like we’ll be in the low 80s for the next few days. That’s nice. Well, nice except for the fact that the warmer it gets, the more stink bugs crawl out of […]

A lot has been accomplished in the last few days, and it’s a good feeling. Very good, indeed! I worked hard on the paper again all day yesterday, and by the time I knocked off a little before midnight I had the new issue of the Gypsy Journal finished, except for the front page photo. […]

We crossed something off our bucket list yesterday, and made memories that will stay with us forever! For years we have wanted to paddle our kayaks at Three Sister Springs in Crystal River. Every year, manatee come into the river and hang out in the warmer water from mid-November until late March. We launched our […]

Well, did you all survive Thanksgiving and Black Friday? How many notches did you have to let out in Your belt? I’m not saying, but when I stepped on our bathroom scale Friday morning, it said “One person at a time, please!” 🙂 Yesterday I didn’t really do much. I took out the trash, and […]

The old saying “Beware of Greeks bearing gifts” dates back to the story of the Trojan Horse, when the Greeks besieged the city of Troy during the Trojan War. According to legend, after a long siege, the Greeks built a huge wooden horse, and concealed a small force of their best soldiers inside. Then they […]

Our Gypsy Gathering rally ended yesterday, and in spite of morning rain and afternoon wind, RVs departed the Mercer County Fairgrounds here in Celina, Ohio headed in every direction. The greatest majority of them are headed south. That’s right, it’s time for the annual snowbird migration. Over the next few weeks, every highway in the […]

I was listening to one of comedian Jeff Foxworthy’s segments on Blue Collar Radio on Sirius yesterday, and he said comedians don’t have to make up jokes, all they have to do is look around them and write down what they see. I agree completely.   We have seen so much insanity and nonsense just going […]
