A Busy Birthday

Somebody playing bongo drums woke us up about 7:30 yesterday morning. I’m a music lover, but really, 7:30? I mean, it was a little better than the recorded Reveille I heard at Army bases when I was a young soldier but still, bongos at 7:30? Thanks to everybody who wished me a happy birthday with […]

Good Timing

I guess we timed our arrival at Elkhart Campground well on Sunday because the wind came up and it started raining in the wee hours of the morning yesterday and kept it up for much of the day. I was glad we weren’t out on the road in that kind of weather! A few RVs […]

Most of yesterday morning was spent printing out RV guides to fill orders that had come in, and then packing them and going to the post office to mail them out. I also re-mailed some envelopes with the new issue of the Gypsy Journal that we mailed out over three weeks ago to subscribers that […]

We’ve enjoyed our three weeks here in the Yuma Foothills and really appreciate the hospitality of our hosts, Charles and Chris Yust, owners of C&C Marketing and insurance. We’ve had time to rest and relax, to get some work done, and to get to know Charles and Chris better. It’s been fun, but it’s about […]

My Nose Hurts!

No, I didn’t stick it where it doesn’t belong and get it broken (again), it’s just sore from being held to the grindstone so much lately! I really like my job, but I think I need a day off. With the new issue of the Gypsy Journal finished, I spent most of yesterday working on […]

Another Busy Day

Here at the Orlando Thousand Trails we are close to all kinds of major attractions, including Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World, sports arenas, and a host of other fun places. This is our third or fourth winter here and we haven’t been to one of them. But that doesn’t mean we ever get bored. […]

Sunday Morning Concert

Now, call me a grouchy old fart if you will, but I’ve always believed that my rights stop where yours begin, and vice versa. So I was a bit perturbed at 8:30 yesterday morning when the fellow across from us here in the campground decided to entertain everybody with a concert of hymns and Christmas […]

Yesterday was pretty much a repeat of the day before. Terry started stuffing envelopes and worked nonstop all day long, and I wrote. By the time we called it quits late in the day, the back end of our Explorer was loaded with bins of envelopes ready to drop off at the mail service Monday […]

Hump Day

This is Wednesday, so if you are part of the working world, this is probably hump day for you. No, that doesn’t mean getting frisky with the receptionist in the supply closet; it means that your work week is half over. Even though we are not retired and run our business from the road, we […]

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 […]
