I finished my newest book, Big Lake Brewpub, yesterday afternoon and started giving it a read through, tweaking things here and there. I’ll finish with that today and then turn it over to Miss Terry for the first round of editing and proofing. When she is done with that I’ll make the necessary revisions and […]

72 Hours Of Hell

If you felt a strong breeze coming from the direction of Tucson, Arizona yesterday afternoon, it was a huge sigh of relief. I haven’t said anything here until now because we didn’t really know anything. But we spent 72 hours going through pure hell this week. Monday during Terry’s annual physical the doctor found a […]

She’s At It Again

As I said in yesterday’s blog, on Friday Terry stocked up on yarn at a shop we found up in Gainesville, so she spent yesterday putting the skeins of yarn onto a swift and then wound them onto a ball winder. Then she wound the warp (don’t worry, I don’t understand most of it either) […]

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you Moms out there! I hope you have a wonderful day, surrounded by lots of love. If you have not called your Mom to tell her you love her yet today, go do it right now. She’s waiting to hear from you. Don’t worry about me and the blog, […]

Bob and Gita Patel, owners of Elkhart Campground, love it when a big rally comes to the fairgrounds in Goshen, some 30 miles south of here. Being the largest and best campground in the area, many RVers come here first to hang out for a week or two before a rally starts, and a lot […]

Time To Slow Down

After our fast four day trip across the country, then rushing to pick up the new issue of the Gypsy Journal at our printer in Michigan and getting it ready for the mail, we’re both tired. It’s time to slow down. We have a week before the Escapees Club Escapade rally starts and we hope […]

We always seem to get the same questions from new and wannabe fulltimers. I will be presenting my Fulltimer FAQs seminar at the Escapees Club Escapade rally in Goshen, Indiana May 12-17. For those of you who can’t make it to Escapade (and you really should), hopefully we can answer some of those questions for […]

Still Going Strong

Thank you all for your e-mail and messages of support. I’m not overly worried about the skin cancer thing at this point; it is what it is. The folks at the V.A. have always taken very good care of me. My only concern is that cancer has claimed several members of my family, including my […]

Words And Warping

We spent the day at home yesterday, and except for a half hour or so I spent outside cleaning some kind of sticky road goop off the side of our Explorer, we never left the motorhome. But we both managed to keep busy. Terry spent most of the day figuring out how to warp her […]

When I saw the above on a sign in front of a business yesterday, I knew exactly how they feel. It’s been cold, windy and rainy for days now, as it has been for much of our summer, and we’re getting very tired of the gloom. Our original plan was to leave the Long Beach […]
