I got an early start writing yesterday and things are moving along very well. So well in fact, that I thought I would be done with my new book by the end of the day. But Mother Nature and the computer gremlins were in collusion and they had other plans. This time of year we […]

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 […]

Yesterday was one of those frustrating days when I just could not make any progress, no matter how hard I tried. Don’t you hate it when that happens?

Today is our last day in Elkhart, and I have no idea where the time went. We got here August 11, and I think this has been the fastest five weeks of my life. We had a lot of things we wanted to get done while we were here, including kayaking on the Saint Joseph […]

After reading everybody’s positive comments about Mac computers, you all convinced me that it was time to take the plunge. So yesterday we took ourselves off to the Apple store at University Park Mall in Mishawaka to go computer shopping. I had already done a lot of research, and decided that the iMac was the […]
