Goodbye Celina

We had planned to leave the Mercer County Fairgrounds in Celina, Ohio somewhere around 10 or 11 AM yesterday morning. But then Greg, Jan, and Miss Terry decided that it would be nice to have breakfast at the Fountain Restaurant, across from the courthouse. I’m not really a breakfast person, but what the heck, if […]

The Day After

With the Ohio rally behind us, we slept in yesterday morning, and when we did wake up we spent another hour so just snuggling and enjoying being together after our busy week. It was nice not to have to jump out of bed and be rushing off to do something. When we did get up, […]

It’s Not Goodbye

Yesterday morning was another early one, with Terry up by 5 AM and me by 7 for the last morning coffee and doughnuts and lots of hugs as all the rally attendees made ready to hit the road. RVers never say goodbye, just “see you down the road,” because we know that we will meet […]

We ordered a case of printed copies of my second mystery novel, Big Lake Lynching, to sell at our rally. In the bottom of the box Miss Terry discovered a book called Complete Empathy, by L.K. Cooper. I thought it was added in by mistake until I looked inside and it is my book, Big […]

Already Busy

Our Early Bird arrival day is tomorrow, but we’ve already been busy parking dozens of RVs here at the Mercer County Fairgrounds in Celina, Ohio. They started rolling in yesterday morning and it was nonstop all day long. I don’t know exactly how many rigs came in but I would estimate somewhere around 50. Most […]

Anybody familiar with writers and the writing process knows that while having a good imagination helps, we don’t have to search hard for things to write about. Usually all we have to do is observe and listen. And trust me, truth really is stranger than fiction! Comedian Bill Engvall has made a career out of […]

Well, I Tried!

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that I was so tired that I wrote the blog early, so that Miss Terry would have it proofed ahead of time, and I could post it right at midnight local time and get to bed. That was the game plan, and I tried. I really tried. However, it didn’t […]

With fuel prices reaching record heights, I am hearing from a lot of RVers who are wondering if they can continue to travel, or who are cutting back on their travels until prices level out. Well, believe it or not, there’s good news, and there’s more good news! The first bit of good news is […]

Ever since we finished our Arizona rally, I have been working on our 2011 Eastern Gypsy Journal Rally, which will be September 26-30, at the Mercer County Fairgrounds, in Celina, Ohio. This will be our fourth Eastern Rally, and the third in Celina, a friendly little town that goes out of its way to make […]

We slept in yesterday morning, and then spent a couple of hours checking e-mail, catching up on our favorite RV blogs, and just enjoying not having to be any place, or doing anything. Sometimes that’s a nice feeling. We had several orders to fill that had come in during the rally, so Terry put them […]
