Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog. This is the third in a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I really don’t […]

Wow, it’s over already? That was a fast year! They say that as we get older time goes faster, and I think that must be true. So what was 2016 like for us? We started the year in Tucson, Arizona, where I was getting follow-up treatment at the VA hospital for a medical issue that […]

Google is a wonderful resource. You can find anything there. Need a recipe for sourdough bread? Just Google it! Trying to figure out how to set the points in a ’66 Pontiac Bonneville? Google it! Can’t remember the name of that obscure actor who drove the bus in some 1960s sitcom? Just Google it! Anything […]

As I said in yesterday’s blog, we weren’t sure if we would leave Saturday or Sunday to begin our trip south, depending on the weather. There were a couple of systems coming through the region that were going to bring some rain, but none of them looked to be very large. It started raining hard […]

A Heck Of A Deal!

It’s always nice to meet blog readers and make new friends, and that’s what I got to do yesterday. Jimmy Crawford is here at Elkhart Campground for the IRV2 rally and sent an email asking if we could meet. So yesterday afternoon I dropped by his motorhome and we had a nice visit. Jimmy is […]

For the last few days we’ve been sticking pretty close to home writing and weaving, so I have declared today a play day. We need those every once in a while. Terry finished weaving her latest project and took it off the loom last night. It’s a huck lace shawl, a new pattern for her […]

100 Miles From Here

Even if we weren’t publishing the Gypsy Journal, Miss Terry and I would still be running around the country visiting all of those little out-of-the-way places, small town museums, and historical sites that we write about. I’ve never understood people who buy an RV, go to a campground, and just sit inside and watch TV […]

It’s been a busy weekend here at Elkhart Campground. The IRV2 rally is going on this week and the place is packed. I wanted to give them some door prizes for the rally, but I wasn’t able to find anybody who knew who was in charge of anything. I’ll probably go to the office today […]

We’ve been busy with some chores the last couple of days and I had not had any time for writing. So yesterday after I dealt with all of the e-mails that came in overnight, I parked myself in front of the computer and went to work. By the time I knocked off several hours later, […]

An Easy Day

We were up early yesterday morning, getting ready for our 140 mile trip back to Elkhart, Indiana. Since Terry put away a lot of stuff inside the motorhome the night before, we had time to do everything else that needed done at a leisurely pace. Fisherman’s Landing in Muskegon, Michigan only has RV sites with […]
