To say that we are humbled by the many, many responses we got after our announcement that this was the last issue of the Gypsy Journal would be an understatement. All day long yesterday I answered emails and texts and Facebook messages, and read comments on the blog from so many people thanking us for […]

No, I haven’t been a very bad boy who deserves punishment. Well, at least, no worse than normal. And no, Miss Terry and I have not been doing anything kinky involving whips and things like that. I’m talking about paddling our Sea Eagle kayaks. One of the things that sold us on our house is […]

Smaller Is Better

You might think that fishing is pretty simple. You tie a hook on the end of your line, stick some bait on the hook, throw it in the water and just wait for a hungry fish to come by so you can make it your dinner. But as any experienced angler will tell you, there’s […]

It’s very often true that you get what you pay for. Sometimes when you make a purchase, it’s better to spend a little money up front for value that will last you a long time. A good example is Tilley hats. The first time I saw one I thought that they were a waste of […]

In the past I’ve published several blogs about hanging up the keys and getting off the road, and talked about where we would settle down. Looking back at those blog posts it’s interesting to me to see how our interests have changed, yet how they have also stayed the same. In blogs in 2009 and […]

Even though our life on wheels seems like a permanent vacation, every once in a while we want a break from the routine. So we’re going on vacation this weekend. We’re going to Muskegon, Michigan to hang out with my cousin Berni Frees and her hubby Rocky for a couple of days. They are two […]

Slacker Nick

I’m glad I don’t have a boss to report to, except Miss Terry, because yesterday I didn’t accomplish one darn thing. That’s right, I was a total slacker. A waste of skin. Just taking up space on old planet Earth. I had a whole bunch of e-mails to deal with in the morning and it […]

Yesterday was strange. We started the morning with our basement air conditioner on, and by the end of the night, we had our furnace on. Yes indeed, it’s official, Nick’s in Florida! 🙂 The more time we spend here  in Titusville, the more we like it. We are not close to being ready to get […]

I have had a very frustrating couple of days, and if I had any hair left, I’d probably be pulling it out about now. Our Ford van has 163,000 miles on the odometer, not counting many thousands more being towed behind our motorhome, and behind our bus conversion before that. It’s reached the point where […]
