It doesn’t matter what you do for a living, whether you are a mechanic, a carpenter, or a plumber, you need the best tools you can get your hands on to do your job. Now, anybody who knows me knows that I am not allowed to touch any kind of tool you can buy at […]

We’ve been getting a lot done in preparation for leaving Elkhart in a few days to go to Celina, Ohio for our Gypsy Journal Rally. If we keep up this pace, we may even have a day or two to catch our breath and relax before we take off. Miss Terry has been busy working […]

Yesterday morning my new book, Crazy Days in Big Lake, went live on the Amazon Kindle bookstore, and on Smashwords for folks who use Nooks and other e-book readers. Actually, I got an e-mail from Amazon saying it was live about 10 PM the evening before. But the link wouldn’t work and it didn’t actually […]

That’s right, I have nothing to report. Nada. Zilch. If you came here looking for excitement, news, information, or wisdom, you’ve come to the wrong place this morning. I’m about as worthless as a politician’s campaign promises. About the only interesting thing I have tell you is that today is our friend Chris Yust’s birthday. […]

Yesterday was another busy day of playing tourist. I’ll tell you what, being on a permanent vacation is hard work! 🙂 We spent the day touring Old Sturbridge Village, a look at life in rural New England in about 1830. The village is a collection of old buildings moved here from all over New England, […]

Sitting Tight

The weather forecast yesterday was for severe thunderstorms, some with heavy rain, damaging hail and high wind. It seemed like a good day to sit tight here at home, so that’s what we did. I kept monitoring the weather reports online and on television, and the forecast seemed to be getting even worse. There was […]

Thank you to everybody who e-mailed yesterday expressing concern for my health issues. I spent most of the day resting under the air conditioning vent, I must have drank a couple of gallons of water, as well as Propel, and by the end of the day I was pretty much back to normal. Or at […]

As I reported in yesterday’s blog, we dropped my iMac computer off at the Apple Store in Mishawaka on Friday afternoon and I was told that the repairs could take two to three weeks. But Daniel Davis, the repair tech, said he would do his best to expedite things. And expedite he did! At 11:30 […]

Yet Another Busy Day

Yesterday was another busy day for us. Is there any other kind? It doesn’t seem like it! Terry had ordered a new pair of glasses from Pearle Vision in Mishawaka a few days ago and they told us they would be ready in about two weeks. But they called Tuesday  to tell us they were […]

Another Busy Day

Yesterday was another busy day for us. It seems like we’ve had a lot of those lately, doesn’t it? We left Elkhart Campground with our Explorer loaded to the brim with bundles of envelopes containing the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. Our first stop was the commercial mail service in South Bend that we […]
