When Did That Happen?

We almost had a shooting at our house yesterday morning. I got up and stumbled in the bathroom half-asleep, flipped on the light, and there was some naked old pervert standing there staring at me. I’m glad I didn’t have my .45 in my hand, because Miss Terry said replacing that great big mirror would […]

Blog Problems And Irma

Thank you to everybody that sent emails or messages expressing concern for our safety with Hurricane Irma looking like it will impact Florida. At this point, nobody really knows where it’s going to go. Depending on which weather map you want to believe, it could be a real problem or it could miss us completely. […]

Stay Away, Irma!

While folks in Texas and Louisiana are still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, here in Florida we are watching the Caribbean, where Hurricane Irma is making a path toward us. Or at least that’s one of the paths. If and where she will land in Florida is still in question. Here’s an idea; […]

We made some wonderful memories and met some amazing people during our years as fulltime RVers. If nothing else, there was never a dull moment! The other day our friend Lynette Milligan McHenry had this photo on her Facebook wall, and it sure got a lot of laughs. This was during our Indiana Gypsy Journal […]

It’s Not Gonna Work

We made our entire living on the road for over 17 years, publishing the Gypsy Journal and our RV related guidebooks, vending at RV rallies, doing speaking gigs at RV events, blogging, and writing and self-publishing books. So I know little bit about what it takes to make the kind of money required to live […]

So Darned Tired

Terry and I seldom go anywhere on holiday weekends, just to avoid the traffic and the crowds. But this weekend I think we’re going to take it a step further and turn off the telephones, keep the blinds closed, and hibernate until Tuesday, because both of us are just so darn tired. As most of […]

Two For Two

I wrote in yesterday’s blog that after the air conditioning repair company we called in July never got back to us with an estimate for a new unit, the folks we had come out to get it running again on Tuesday followed through and gave us not one, but three estimates on the spot. That […]

Enough Is Enough

Yesterday morning I work up with a warm, fuzzy feeling. The fuzzy was because I haven’t shaved my back recently, and the warm was because our darned air conditioner quit again. By noon it was 85° inside our house. Okay, that’s enough! Time to call somebody to come out and fix it. You may remember […]

One More Page

I have one more page to put together and then insert a cover photo on the front page and I will be finished with the new issue of the Gypsy Journal. Once that’s done, I’ll print it out for Miss Terry to proof a final time, make any necessary corrections, and get it ready to […]

Note: This story is from the July-August 2012 issue of the Gypsy Journal. One fact that a lot of people never think about in warfare is the often overwhelming task of dealing with enemy troops who have been captured or who have surrendered. They must be moved away from the battle lines, and it can […]
