In a blog post a few days ago, I bragged about driving down the beach in New Smyrna Beach watching all of the pretty girls in their skimpy bikinis while my pal Rocky Frees is stuck up in Muskegon, Michigan shoveling snow. I should have known better than to gloat like that, so I wasn’t […]

Do you remember all of those problems I talked about in yesterday’s blog? I wrote about how my computer kept wanting to do updates, and then when I made the PDF of the new issue of the Gypsy Journal, the file size was too big, then I had problems getting it uploaded to our Web […]

We had a wonderful time visiting Berni and Rocky in Muskegon, Michigan, a town where there is so much to see and do that you would have to work hard to be bored. We never have enough time to even scratch the surface when we visit. The weekly Farmers Market is a good place to […]

We have been taking a break from our usual routine to hang out with two of our favorite people in the world, my cousin Berni Frees and her husband Rocky, in Muskegon, Michigan and I have not done one productive thing in two days. Wow, it feels really good! We’ve spent the time goofing off; […]

Even though our life on wheels seems like a permanent vacation, every once in a while we want a break from the routine. So we’re going on vacation this weekend. We’re going to Muskegon, Michigan to hang out with my cousin Berni Frees and her hubby Rocky for a couple of days. They are two […]

They say all good things must come to an end, and so it is with our visit to Muskegon, Michigan. We’ve had a wonderful time visiting with Rocky and Berni, and more laughs than we can count but now it’s time to move on. We know we will be coming back again and again. Muskegon […]

If you’ve been reading this blog for more than a week or two, you know that we love finding interesting places to eat as we explore America’s highways and back roads. Yesterday, my cousin Berni took us to what is considered the oldest continually operated soda fountain in the state of Michigan. What a treat! […]

Yesterday we drove about an hour north of Hickory Hollow Campground to Dixon, Illinois, a nice little town with a lot of history. Former President Ronald Reagan grew up in Dixon and graduated from high school there. The Reagan family lived in several rental houses in Dixon, but the two-story frame house at 816 S. […]

I was up before 9 a.m. yesterday morning, and I had hoped to get the new issue of the Gypsy Journal wrapped up and uploaded to the printer’s web server by early afternoon. But we all know how plans can sometimes go awry, don’t we? I ran into some problems in layout, basically in making […]
