I’ve been goofing off, but it’s really not my fault. It’s hard to concentrate on writing when I can hear the surf crashing onto the beach from my motorhome and the wind is perfect for kite flying. Damned hard. But I did manage to crank out another 1,000 words on my newest Big Lake book […]

I Hate Everything!

Okay, I don’t hate you, but I hate everything else! Especially the dweebs that invented computers and the internet in the first place. It took me over two hours to get Tuesday’s blog to load. Every time I tried to publish it the photos disappeared and everything became one long paragraph with no breaks between […]

No I wasn’t at Disney World, but I had the words to that old song running through my head yesterday. While we were having lunch with Don and Sharon Del Rosario the other day, we had a conversation about the small world encounters we all have from time to time. You know the ones I’m […]

Much of the last week has been spent getting the new issue of the Gypsy Journal ready to go to press. I finished it yesterday afternoon and then Terry spent several hours proofing it before I uploaded it to our printer’s web server. It always feels good to get another issue behind us. This is […]

Thank you to everybody who sent me suggestions for products and home remedies for the gnat bites that have been driving me mad. As it turns out, Miss Terry had the best answer, Windex. Yes, regular glass cleaner with ammonia in it. She told me to put some on my arms and darned if it […]

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that after working a lot of hours this past week finishing the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, I planned to spoil myself and sleep in, and that’s just what I did! We got to bed about 3 a.m. and woke up about 10:30. I guess I needed it; I’m […]

A Lot Going On

It seems like nothing ever gets cheaper, even if our income stays the same. That’s why Millenicom customers hoped that the announcement of yesterday’s price increase was just a bad April Fool’s Day joke. Unfortunately, it wasn’t. Millenicom has been providing its customers real bargains on internet service; $69.99 a month for 20 gigabytes of […]

Quick Road Trip

I keep hoping that now that I have stopped using the Fluorouracil cream on my face things will start to get back to normal. And it is, but very slowly. At this point I just look like I have a really, really bad sunburn. The pain has eased up a lot, but due to my […]

We originally planned to leave Santa Fe RV Park here in Apache Junction today and to go back to Tucson to get settled in for more stuff at the V.A. hospital next week. But we decided to extend for two more nights to give me time to get the next issue of the paper finished. […]

We have been spending most of our days for the last week at Barrows Neurological Institute in Phoenix with our friend Sharleen, who has undergone two surgeries in five days for a brain tumor. She has come through both and is doing well at this time. It is just amazing to me that someone can […]
