We love exploring new places and seeing new sights but it seems that every time we visit someplace new, somebody tells us we missed something there that we really should have seen. Miss Terry tells them that we do that on purpose so we’ll have an excuse to go back. There are some places we’ve […]

After reading my year end blog the other day, I got an e-mail from a very nice man who said he and his wife would love to see some of the places we have visited, but that their fulltiming is limited to summers in the Midwest and Florida in the wintertime because their adult kids […]

Sunbelt My Butt!

Who said Arizona was in the Sunbelt, a place where retirees and snowbirds could while away the winter months in warm comfort? Whoever they were, they lied! It’s been a cold, wet, windy weekend here at the Pima County Fairgrounds in Tucson and I’m freezing! I think if I started driving right now and kept […]

Rocking And Rolling

The wind was averaging 40 – 45 miles per hour yesterday here in the White Mountains of Arizona, and at midday two gusts were recorded at 60 miles per hour. We’re parked next to my daughter’s house and the back half of the Winnebago is sheltered by the building but we’re still feeling the effects. […]

There’s not much new to report here. It rained hard and the wind blew all night Wednesday night, and yesterday I spent over ten hours working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. So I thought I’d share a story from a previous edition of the paper, when we visited President Truman’s hideaway from […]

Since we came back from the Keys, we haven’t done much exploring this winter, so we decided we needed a play day yesterday. We left the campground and drove about 30 miles west to Crystal River, one of our favorite places on the Gulf Coast. Along the way, we stopped in the little town of […]

Really, I can’t. I wish I could, but even I can’t write fiction as crazy as some of the things I see and hear. If I didn’t have Miss Terry here to occasionally pinch me so I know I’m not dreaming, I wouldn’t believe some of it myself. I was involved in an online discussion […]

Would somebody please light a fire under my butt? I need to get a lot of writing done, and yesterday I just couldn’t seem to get anything accomplished. I think I got off to a wrong start for the day by getting into a rather prolonged e-mail exchange with a gentleman from England who is […]

A Tale Of Two Trees

I love the odd, quirky things we discover in our travels along America’s highways and byways, and a lot of them find their way into the blog, the Gypsy Journal, or my books. And we never seem to run out of new opportunities to find things to share with our readers. A while back, during […]

Goodbye To The Keys

Today we say a reluctant goodbye to the Florida Keys. We’ve been here just over two weeks and enjoyed every minute of it. Even though we didn’t get to do any fishing or boating, the variety of fresh seafood around here is phenomenal and the scenery is spectacular. And if you haven’t been to the […]
