What do you do all day? It’s a question fulltime RVers get asked all the time. The real question is, how can we cram another twelve hours into every day to get all of the things done we want to? RVers have many hobbies that fit perfectly into our lifestyle, offering plenty of opportunities to […]

After all of the activity at Friday night’s birthday party for granddaughter Hailey, we were dead to the world when we finally went to bed and didn’t get up until a little after 10 yesterday morning, which is about normal for us since we seldom get to bed before 2 a.m. Right after we got […]

What’s huge, takes up a lot of room, weighs a ton, and makes Miss Terry smile? No, it’s not me. It’s Terry’s new Baby Wolf loom. Yesterday afternoon we drove to Prescott to pick up the loom, and the lady selling it surprised Terry by throwing in a bunch of extras, including a lamp that […]

How windy was it yesterday? It was so windy the National Weather Service asked all the politicians in Washington to shut up. No seriously, it was so windy it blew the tramp stamp right off our waitress’ back at dinner last night. For much of the day winds here in north central were 35+ miles […]

A few days ago Gypsy Journal subscriber John Landry e-mailed me to say that he and his wife Karen are at their lot in an RV resort in the Ilwaco area, and offered to drive down to Seaside and let me fly some of his Prism kites. We decided that yesterday was the day. We […]

Yesterday was the last day of the kite festival, and a little after noon we went to town and walked out on the beach to get one last look at all of the fun. There were a lot of kites flying, though not as many as on previous days, since it was Sunday and a […]

As I wrote in Friday’s blog, when we were here in Long Beach a couple of years ago we toured the World Kite Museum with Greg and Jan White and I bought a G-Kites Delta Conyne kite, then stuck it in the closet and forgot all about it until we were at the kite festival […]

Yesterday we drove back across the bridge to Astoria, Oregon again, and that darned bridge just doesn’t get any smaller! You’d think I would have been over it enough not to let it bother me any more, but then again, I think anybody as charming and intelligent as myself should be filthy rich. And we’d […]

For years I’ve wanted to see the Kite Festival here in Long Beach, and it was by pure dumb luck that our visit happened to coincide with the annual event, which draws thousands of kite fliers from all over the world. This year’s festival runs from Monday through Sunday, with all kinds of special events […]

Spinning Time

Miss Terry is pretty much a self-taught spinner and weaver, learning from books, You Tube videos, and DVDs. But nothing beats a hands-on lesson from someone who has been doing it a long time. When we got into this area last week, we stopped in a couple of yarn stores to inquire about any classes […]
