I sent out the new issue of the Gypsy Journal yesterday, which included the following announcement: As I shared with you in the September-October issue of the Gypsy Journal, Terry and I feel like we have come to a crossroads in our lives. We started publishing the paper in the spring of 1999, when we […]

Since all I’ve done the last few days is get my new book Badge Bunny out, send out my author’s newsletter, and work on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, I don’t have anything new to report to you today. So I thought I would talk a little bit about inspections. After reading yesterday’s blog […]

Enough Is Enough

Yesterday morning I work up with a warm, fuzzy feeling. The fuzzy was because I haven’t shaved my back recently, and the warm was because our darned air conditioner quit again. By noon it was 85° inside our house. Okay, that’s enough! Time to call somebody to come out and fix it. You may remember […]

When I asked blog readers to share some of their RV tips, you folks responded with some great ideas. Some were things I’ve heard of before but had forgotten about, and others were new to me. Hopefully you will find some of them useful. Larry Merritt said before he ever backs into an RV site […]

It’s been a writing marathon for the last few days for me. I got 8,000 words done Tuesday, and another 8,000 yesterday, and finished my newest book, Big Lake Tragedy. Today I will give it a final read-through and make any corrections that I see, then I will print it out so Miss Terry can […]

I get a lot of questions from Gypsy Journal subscribers and blog readers, and while I try to answer all of them individually, occasionally I like to share some with the folks here. Q. I am wondering if you have ever written any articles about starting your own blog – and/or website hosting services? If not, […]

I’m way behind on my latest Big Lake book, so most of my time lately has been spent at my desk trying to play catch-up. Between Sunday and Wednesday I managed to get about 10,000 words done, and then another 3,800 words yesterday. That puts me well past the halfway point and it’s rolling right […]

On June 21st I posted a blog titled Terry’s New Ride, with pictures of the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica we bought for her birthday. And today we have to take it back to the dealer for its 5,000 mile oil change and checkup. When I called to make the appointment, the service people were somewhat amazed […]

Today is a very special day at our house because it is Miss Terry’s birthday. And though it may be her birthday, the rest of the world, and especially me, got a wonderful present when she was born. Happy birthday my love, I’m going to try very hard to make sure you have a wonderful […]

Playing Catch Up

I had hoped to get some work done in my new book yesterday but it wasn’t in the cards. Instead, I spent most of the day playing catch up on the emails and messages and other things that I had put off while Travis and Geli were here. I must have had a dozen emails […]
