Today is our last day at Horseshoe Cove RV Resort in Bradenton. We have enjoyed our month here, but it went way too fast. There were several places we wanted to visit, but as always seems to happen, time got away from us. But the one thing we did accomplish is to decide that while […]

As much as I’m sure she would’ve preferred to be weaving, Terry spent a lot of time this last week getting my new book, Black Friday, proofed. Yesterday I finished the last of the corrections and revisions she suggested, then sent it off to my cousin Beverly down in Tucson so she could give it […]

The shipment of the new issue of the Gypsy Journal got to the freight dock in Astoria either Monday or Tuesday, but we never received a call, so I called yesterday to see where it was. After tracking it down on her computer, the woman at the shipping company’s office in Portland said it was […]

Between bad weather over the weekend and working on writing and weaving projects, we’ve been cooped up inside the motorhome for too long so yesterday we needed to get out for a while. Our first stop was at the Ranger station, where I needed to pick up our parking pass for our extra week. That […]

I finished the new issue of the Gypsy Journal yesterday, Terry proofread it, and I uploaded it to our printer’s web server late last night. Now it’s time to play. Somebody please ring the bell for recess! While Terry was proofing the new issue, our neighbor Albert Casaus came by to renew his subscription and […]

I got a telephone call yesterday morning from the Apple store to tell me they think they figured out what is wrong with my iMac. The young lady said they replaced the CD/DVD drive again and the cable for it, and then they decided that the circuit board that my RAM plugs into is bad. […]

Today is my daughter Tiffany’s 31st birthday, and it seems like it was only yesterday that I was strapping her car seat into the back seat of my Lincoln Town Car to take her home from the hospital. Now she’s a grown woman with two little girls of her own. Where do the years go? […]

In the words of the immortal Popeye the Sailor, “and that’s all what I yam.” Take me or leave me, I’m too old to change and I kind of like who I yam. So when somebody who works for the government took offense to me picking on postal workers in yesterday’s blog and left a […]
