Okay, I quit. Greg White wins. I should have listened to him back in 2011 when he told not to buy an Apple computer, but I didn’t. And I should have listened to him and dumped it a few weeks later when my brand new iMac started giving me problems, but I didn’t. And I […]

So what’s worse than getting up at 7 o’clock in the morning? Getting up at 7 o’clock in the morning on another gray, ugly day. Yeah, that’s what it was again yesterday. (Heavy sigh.) Here are a couple of pictures taken in the early afternoon to give you a feel for the place. People here […]

Those of you who have been following our saga all along may remember the Motorhome From Hell, our first RV, which was a Fleetwood lemon. It literally fell apart driving down the highway and we spent the first eighteen months of our fulltime adventure running from dealer to dealer and even to the factory, trying […]

When the young lady from the Apple store called me Sunday morning she said they expected to get the parts they needed to fix my iMac in on Tuesday morning and get it all put back together, and that she would call me in 48 hours with a status update. I told her that would […]

A Not So Lazy Sunday

I got a telephone call yesterday morning from the Apple store to tell me they think they figured out what is wrong with my iMac. The young lady said they replaced the CD/DVD drive again and the cable for it, and then they decided that the circuit board that my RAM plugs into is bad. […]

After being cooped up inside for most of the past week working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, we both had cabin fever and definitely needed a day out yesterday. I had an appointment to take my iMac to the Apple store, but since I knew they were going to want to keep […]

A few weeks ago I wrote that my iMac was back at the Apple store (again) and that they were trying to fix its ongoing problems (again). And here we go again! Yesterday the CD/DVD drive crashed again! This is the same drive that has been replaced twice now. I am so frustrated with this […]

As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, we needed to find out if we could move to Countryside RV Resort for two weeks or if we would have to go to Plan B, since our month here at Patio Gardens is up today. As it turns out, we’re staying with Plan A. I called Thousand Trails […]

Terry has finished proofing the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, and today I’ll make the final corrections, and then upload it to our printer’s webserver. This is issue 84, which is our fourteen year anniversary issue. That’s a lot of miles of RV travel! I have some author friends whose output amazes me. Some […]

I didn’t hear the rock band Kansas singing their hit song Dust in the Wind, but that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been a lot of it blowing around the last couple of days. A lot of it! The high winds we had on Monday subsided a little bit yesterday, but there were still plenty of […]
