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 […]

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 […]

Readers keep asking me what happened to Bad Nick, and if I’ll be posting any more to the Bad Nick Blog. I enjoyed doing it and I miss being able to spout off about all kinds of things that Miss Terry tells me I can’t talk about in the Gypsy Journal or this blog. But […]

Yesterday was a day for meeting new friends we had previously only known online. That’s always a lot of fun. As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, we were meeting Nina Fussing and her husband Paul Novell of Wheeling it blog fame at The Lost Roo, here in Long Beach for lunch. They are a fun […]

Where Went The Wind?

I know, that title’s probably not proper English, and if I gave it some thought I could have done better. But what can I say? I’m a rebel. Now, back to the wind. Where the heck did it go? How can I fly my kites without any wind? Wasn’t that the purpose of spending our […]

Cold, Wet, And Nasty

That about describes yesterday here at the Long Beach Thousand Trails preserve. We woke up to gray skies that never cleared up all day long, and while it didn’t rain hard, there was a heavy mist most of the day. It reminded me of the old saying that was popular when I lived here many […]

No Flying For Us

You can sure tell it’s the weekend. The campground is full, dogs are barking everywhere, kids are running about, and I think I smelled a smoky fire, even though they are banned statewide because of dry conditions. Rules? No way, they can’t be for us! We would have loved to be out on the beach […]

Yesterday morning we set what is absolutely a new record for us for getting on the road in the morning, and it sucked. I never want to do that again! Monday night we turned off the bedroom TV at 12:30, which is early for us, because we wanted to get an early start on our […]

Yesterday afternoon we were downtown in Seaside and saw a couple of guys with skateboards who were in their late 20s and being a bit obnoxious. I was tempted to tell them to grow up, but then I remembered that I’m 62 and I spend my time flying kites, so I kept my mouth shut. […]

Not Much Going On

We have not had much going on for the last couple of days, and that’s okay, too. Every day can’t be a round of sightseeing and adventuring. Sometimes the quiet times are the best ones. We had hoped to get some kite flying in on Thursday afternoon, and we met Nancy Kissack at the beach […]
