Like I have been doing, I spent much of yesterday working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, and by the time I knocked off a little after 4 PM I had ten pages done. But like they say, all work and no play makes Nick a dull boy. And the last thing I […]

Don’t Blame Me!

I have a reputation for taking bad weather with me wherever I go. People can be enjoying balmy sunshine for weeks on end, and the day after I arrive it starts to snow or they get a record rainfall. At our Gypsy Journal rally in Yuma, Arizona years ago, they got their whole year’s quota […]

One of the places we have been considering as a winter base and possible future home if and when we ever hang up the keys is St. Augustine. The oldest continuously occupied European-established settlement, Saint Augustine was founded in 1565 by the Spanish and has a long and colorful history. We visited there a couple […]

Almost There

A lot of readers are asking me when my next Big Lake book will be out. I learned a long time ago to never give a definite date, because when I do, something always seems to get in the way and throw me off schedule. But I got another 3,500 words or so in yesterday […]

Don’t Tell Anybody

Don’t tell anybody but I’ve been harboring a secret for a long time. I’m a fraud. I’ve made a career out of not knowing how to fix anything and relying on the kindness of strangers and Greg White, who is more than a little strange himself, whenever I need something fixed. But the truth is, […]

Will We Make It?

It rained all of Sunday night in Seaside and we had showers off and on all day long Monday. I think the warmest it got up to was about 62°. A typical Fall day on the Pacific Northwest coast. We are leaving for Newport this morning where we are scheduled for two weeks at Whalers […]

Between bad weather over the weekend and working on writing and weaving projects, we’ve been cooped up inside the motorhome for too long so yesterday we needed to get out for a while. Our first stop was at the Ranger station, where I needed to pick up our parking pass for our extra week. That […]

A Busy Saturday

No matter what part of the country we are in, we would have to work very hard to be bored because there are never enough hours in a day to cram in everything we want to do. Yesterday was a typically busy day for us. We started out with a visit to Purley Shell Fiber […]

Between uncooperative weather, catching up on chores around the motorhome, and being busy with writing projects, it been so long since we’ve been flying that I was going through withdrawals. We tried Thursday afternoon, but when we got down to the beach about 4 o’clock, the wind was blowing so hard that it wouldn’t have […]

Off To See The Printer

Yesterday we put the final touches on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and after Miss Terry proofed it I sent it off to our printer back in Michigan. Well, I didn’t send it, I actually uploaded it to their web server. They’ll print it this coming week and get it shipped back to […]
