Almost There

A lot of readers are asking me when my next Big Lake book will be out. I learned a long time ago to never give a definite date, because when I do, something always seems to get in the way and throw me off schedule. But I got another 3,500 words or so in yesterday […]

If you’re anywhere near the Oregon coast, put in your awnings, batten down the hatches, and hang on. A big storm is coming in and the weatherman says we can expect lots of rain, and 25 – 35 mile per hour winds with gusts to 45 today. It’s definitely not a day to be outside, […]

She’s At It Again!

If you think Miss Terry is a happy camper, you’re right. With the mailing out of the way, it’s weaving time. It’s been too long since she’s had time to work on her loom so she spent yesterday warping a new project onto her loom that’s she’s been looking forward to getting busy on. When […]

We were up early again yesterday, or at least early for us. Terry and I are night people. We seldom get to bed before 2 or 2:30 a.m., and then we sleep until about 10 or 10:30. But with the Tampa RV Super Show next week, then our trip to Escapade, we are trying to […]

I Did It!

It’s done! I got up early and cranked out over 4,500 words yesterday and finished Big Lake Burning, the sixth book in the series. Now I’ll give it a read through and then print it out for Terry to proof and edit. It always feels good to get a new book done, and once I […]

It’s On Its Way!

After hauling a truckload of bins full of stuffed envelopes to the small post office in East Berlin yesterday, we made a short trip to Mannings Handweaving School and Supply Center so Terry could pick up some extra spools of the tencel yarn she loves to weave with so much. Carol Woolcock, the shop’s owner, […]

Except for a quick run to Annville to mail out an order and stop at a roadside produce stand and a very nice meat market next to it called Laudermilch’s Meats, we were busy at home all day yesterday. After dealing with the usual morning load of e-mail, I parked myself at my desk and […]

The weatherman predicted heavy rains for yesterday and he wasn’t fibbing! It started coming down just after midnight and never stopped all day long. Sometimes it eased up to just a light shower, but then it would pour again. It was still raining 24 hours later when I was getting this blog ready to post […]

Down To The Nubs

I spent much of the day yesterday getting the new digital edition of the Gypsy Journal uploaded to the internet and the link sent out to our digital subscribers. Somebody said that with all the time I’ve been at the keyboard the last week, I must be working my fingers down to nubs. They were […]
