Our normal schedule has always been for me to write late into the evening and we usually didn’t get to bed until about 1:30 AM or later. Then we would get up around 10 AM. But for a couple of months Terry and I were working hard at going to bed earlier and getting up […]

It’s Not Gonna Work

We made our entire living on the road for over 17 years, publishing the Gypsy Journal and our RV related guidebooks, vending at RV rallies, doing speaking gigs at RV events, blogging, and writing and self-publishing books. So I know little bit about what it takes to make the kind of money required to live […]

After everything that happened to us in the last week, when I got up early Saturday morning to talk to somebody at Rush Truck Center in Jacksonville, Florida, where we had been towed in the night before, I wasn’t feeling very optimistic. But I had a Facebook message saying that my nephew, Jack Russell, who […]

I spent many of my years living in the southwestern part of the United States, and I learned that when you wanted something done there and called any kind of repairman or service person, they all operated on Mañana Time. I was talking to a friend once who lived down in the Florida Keys, and he […]

When In Doubt, Get Out

Anybody who spends as much time online as I do researching my books, promoting them on various blogs and websites, gabbing with my author friends on social media, and helping moderate four different Facebook groups is bound to get hit up with some kind of attempted virus attack. This is in addition to all the […]

To those of you who supported Donald Trump, congratulations. To those of you who opposed him, in four more years we get do it all over again and maybe this time around your candidate will win. But no matter who you voted for, the election is over. As I predicted in a recent blog post, the […]

With my new book finished, I’m already planning my next writing project and will be jumping headfirst into that soon. As for Big Lake Abduction, the one I finished on Tuesday evening, Miss Terry started proofreading it yesterday. She was laughing by the second page, so I hope that’s a good thing. I spent much […]

Process Of Elimination

 Our search for a winter nesting spot and possible retirement place if we ever hang up the keys is basically a process of elimination. While we haven’t found “the place” that is right for us yet, we have crossed several possibilities off the list. After our most recent day trip we have now ruled out […]

The Numbers Are In

At the end of December every year WordPress sends out an annual report to bloggers, telling them how much traffic their blog received in the past 12 months, where those visitors came from, which blog posts received the most attention, and a lot of other interesting data. My report came in yesterday, and looking it […]

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 […]
