It seems like the weather here in central Florida goes from one extreme to the other. Last week we had daytime temperatures in the mid-80s and now we have a cold front headed our way and the weatherman is saying it will bring rain with it and we will be lucky if we hit a […]

Miss Terry loves the fiber arts. Spinning, weaving, crocheting, and knitting. You name it and she does it. So she was really looking forward to the Michigan Fiber Festival in Allegan this weekend. Allegan is about 90 miles from Elkhart Campground, and we got there about 11 a.m. We were only a few steps inside […]

As I said in a post a few days ago, flying sport kites is contagious and can be highly addictive. And now that Miss Terry is addicted, too, we have two new additions to our kite bag. The three Revolution kites we have are all solid sail models. That’s kite-talk for the ripstop high-grade nylon […]

If you’re a fulltime RVer exploring America, you have to work to be bored because there’s something interesting to see and do around every bend in the road. When he heard we were going to be in Eureka, California, longtime reader Nelson Cooper e-mailed to tell me to check out Blue Ox Millworks, a combination […]

I was going to title today’s blog Terry Went To Heaven, but that just didn’t sound right, so I changed it. But she sure felt like she was in heaven yesterday! For a long time now she has wanted to go to The Mannings Handweaving School and Supply Center in East Berlin, Pennsylvania. For over […]

Before we left this area Terry wanted to make another trip to The Weaver’s Loft, her favorite fiber store in the country, which is in Guilford, only 10 or so miles away from the Indian Lakes Thousand Trails Preserve. So yesterday afternoon we drove over and spent some time with Barb Gallagher, who owns the […]

We were up by 7:30 yesterday morning, and on the road by 10, heading east from Hidden Valley RV Resort in Tijeras, New Mexico on State Route 333, which runs alongside Interstate 40, Terry leading me in the Explorer. We had not filled our propane tank since we were at Elkhart Campground last summer and […]

No, that’s not a reference to my sex life. Blue Ball and Intercourse are two communities in Lancaster County, the heart of the Pennsylvania Dutch country. I needed a break from working on the paper and it had finally stopped raining, so we spent yesterday playing tourist with Greg and Jan. Our first stop was […]

We were up at the ungodly hour of 7:30 AM yesterday, to make the drive to Allegan, Michigan, where our printer is located, and where they are holding the Michigan Fiber Festival this weekend. Miss Terry is really into the fiber arts, spinning, weaving, crocheting, anything to do with them. She had never been to […]

Yet Another Busy Day

Yesterday was another busy day for us. Is there any other kind? It doesn’t seem like it! Terry had ordered a new pair of glasses from Pearle Vision in Mishawaka a few days ago and they told us they would be ready in about two weeks. But they called Tuesday  to tell us they were […]
