Note: This story is from the March-April, 2017 issue of the Gypsy Journal. In the friendly college town of Athens, Georgia we came across an unusual historical artifact with an interesting history that is a classic example of engineering gone wrong, even though it seemed like a good idea at the time Home to the […]

We Are Humbled

To say that we are humbled by the many, many responses we got after our announcement that this was the last issue of the Gypsy Journal would be an understatement. All day long yesterday I answered emails and texts and Facebook messages, and read comments on the blog from so many people thanking us for […]

According to the weatherman, the worst of the summer weather is behind us and we can expect to see a cooling trend in the next week or so. That doesn’t mean it’s going to be cool, it’s just going to be less hot. It will be down in the low to mid 80s until Wednesday […]

A Lot Going On

We have had a lot going on the last few days, so I thought I would bring you up to date on things in today’s blog. Terry finished the first proofreading and editing of Badge Bunny, and it is now in the hands of the second proofreader. Once she’s done and the corrections she suggested […]

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. And since I’m sure you don’t care to hear about my latest writing word count or the progress on Terry’s current weaving […]

Note: This story is from the May – June 2016 issue of the Gypsy Journal. Long before movie theaters, cable television, and satellites that beam entertainment right into our living rooms, people enjoyed live entertainment. During the early days of the 20th century vaudeville acts performed at just about every large and small city in […]

It’s Not Gonna Work

We made our entire living on the road for over 17 years, publishing the Gypsy Journal and our RV related guidebooks, vending at RV rallies, doing speaking gigs at RV events, blogging, and writing and self-publishing books. So I know little bit about what it takes to make the kind of money required to live […]

So Darned Tired

Terry and I seldom go anywhere on holiday weekends, just to avoid the traffic and the crowds. But this weekend I think we’re going to take it a step further and turn off the telephones, keep the blinds closed, and hibernate until Tuesday, because both of us are just so darn tired. As most of […]

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that after the air conditioning repair company we called in July never got back to us with an estimate for a new unit, the folks we had come out to get it running again on Tuesday followed through and gave us not one, but three estimates on the spot. That […]

I have one more page to put together and then insert a cover photo on the front page and I will be finished with the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. Once that’s done, I’ll print it out for Miss Terry to proof a final time, make any necessary corrections, and get it ready to […]
