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. Another collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’ll share, because I really don’t have anything else to talk […]

Before I do anything else, I want to wish our dear friend Jan White a happy birthday. I’ve said it before, I am sure there is a special place in heaven for a woman like Jan, because she is a saint. I mean, not only does she put up with her hubby Greg, she even […]

We are Floridians!

For some time now we have been planning to change our legal domicile from South Dakota to Florida. There were several reasons for this, including the fact that if and when we ever hang up the keys, it will be here in Florida. Other factors in our decision-making were that it’s difficult for fulltime RVers […]

That’s right, you people in the Sunshine State. Roll the awnings up, batten down the hatches, and put another log on the fire. We’re headed to Florida today! We hope to get an early start (early for us being about 9 AM) and hopefully we will be able to outrun the storm that’s supposed to […]

I’ve never had writer’s block because I don’t believe in it. In my 25+ years of publishing small town newspapers I couldn’t put out 36 blank pages of newsprint and tell folks, “Sorry, no news this week, I’ve got writer’s block.” But sometimes I hit a spot where I have to back up and take […]

I Would Snivel, But…

What good would it do? You’ve all heard my rants about the post office before. More than once. I truly don’t know how they’ve kept their doors open as long as they have. A bunch of chimpanzees couldn’t run an organization any worse than the people they have there now do. After we send out […]

Why Florida?

After I wrote that we are thinking very hard about switching our legal domicile from South Dakota to Florida, a couple of blog readers wanted to know why, and a couple more asked if we had considered Texas. When we started fulltiming 15 years ago we switched from Arizona to Texas and used the Escapees […]

It Was A Good Week

We had a very good week at the Escapees Escapade rally this past week, in spite of the pouring rain, frigid temperatures, wind, and mud. Yeah, it was typical RV rally weather. Terry and I enjoyed seeing so many old and new friends who stopped by our vendor booth.   Here we have a combination […]

Who turned off the heat? It looks and feels like winter here in Elkhart, Indiana. We’ve had a lot of wind, a little rain, and the daytime temperatures have not climbed above the mid-50s the last few days and are not going to get above the low 60s for the next week or so. I […]

We’ve been getting a lot done in preparation for leaving Elkhart in a few days to go to Celina, Ohio for our Gypsy Journal Rally. If we keep up this pace, we may even have a day or two to catch our breath and relax before we take off. Miss Terry has been busy working […]
