I Lied

When I wrote in yesterday’s blog that we planned to break up the 450 mile trip from the Wilmington, Ohio Thousand Trails to the Hershey, Pennsylvania Thousand Trails into two days and to stop somewhere along the way overnight, I really meant it. Honest, I did. But as it turns out, I lied. After bittersweet […]

Okay, maybe I didn’t shave my legs, but I was still up before 7 a.m., and I even brushed my teeth! That has to count for something, doesn’t it? Why was I up at such an ungodly hour, you may ask? Because we’re working a vendor booth at the Hershey RV Show this week – […]

As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, I think Pennsylvania is one of our prettiest states. And yesterday we got to see some exceptionally picturesque parts of the Keystone State.

If you have […]

Yesterday was the calm before the storm in a couple of ways. After a harried week of putting the new issue of the paper together and getting it over to the printer in Flagstaff, we had a day to do absolutely nothing. And that’s just about all we did! Miss Terry is still dealing with […]

Wicked Weather

The weather forecast has been for rain all week, though it seemed to come in spurts, with periods of blue sky in between. But Wednesday night it began to rain in earnest, and it hasn’t stopped yet. The rain was accompanied with high winds that whipped the palm trees in our park, and about 4:30 […]
